The Philadelphia 2600 was set up to gather people with a common intrest to represent a stereotyped culture, share knowledge, and have a good time. Everybody at the meetings has something to teach, no matter how new to computers, and everybody has something to learn, no matter how experienced. We ask everyone to keep an open mind at the meetings because even within our group there is diversity. The Philadelphia 2600 was set up for anybody with any electronic and computer intrest, not just “Hackers”. If you’re a graphic artist, come on down. If you’re a cable repair guy, come on down. If you’re a 10 year old midget with a 2X4 for a leg, come on down. If you’re a police officer or government official, you’re welcome too. As for everyone else, you’ll always find someone who’s willing to teach new members and this is the perfect place to do it.

Hacking 101- Part 1 by: Satanklawz DISCLAMER: This is for educational purposes only... yadda yadda yadda. I do not condone hacking illegally... yadaa yadda yadda... If you get caught it's your own damn fault, etc etc etc. Don't be stupid or hold me liable. INTRO: People consistently ask for my advice or just let alone, 'Satan, how do you hack?' Well, I'm finally fed up with being asked this question and am going to spill out some trade secrets (well, not all of them) in a multi part series. Within this series I'll discuss sites that you are legally allowed to play on as well as systems on my personal network that you can use to hone your abilities. Step 1: Profiling: Macrocosm. This may sound silly, but the more you know about the target the better. Consider this, would you want to walk into a void of light cave that is known as a rattlesnake bin? No, you'd probably prefer a light, let alone avoiding it (unless you're that crazy ass motherfucker of an Australian Steve 'The "I'm not dead yet from being a dumb ass" Crocodile Hunter.' That is why it is essential to profile your target before going all balls out against it. Find out who the people are who run the system (Finger Dameons on their end are great for this), send them an email about a general question and see who responds ([email protected]: "Do you like to eat cheese?"). The DNS TLD Whois Database is another great place to start, find out their IP range and take that knowledge to http://www.arin.net/whois to find out more information. Hell, if there is a support/help desk, give them a call and ask if anyone ordered a pizza or something. Knowledge IS power, the more you know the better off you are. Then there is the database of them all, Google. Yes, google has all the answers to your questions; you just have to ask the right question. Don't do all of the profiling in one night because people will notice this. Also, if you can, try to keep as many of the queries from being on the same host (ie. go to the library and do a search). You don't want the webadmin looking at the logs and say 'Hey. There is something fishy going on here.' So now you know the company/individual, who they are, what they do, and quite possibly when they expect to have the largest amount of traffic. Use this knowledge to assist you in hiding your Internet identity, ie, blending in with the legitimate customers and users of the system. Step 2: Being Anonymous. Yes, this is very important. You don't want you ISP to be also catching onto the fact that you may be up to something as well. Even if there is no complaint made against your account, if your ISP suspects you of illegal activities they'll pull the plug on your account (and have every right to also). So, you also want your traffic to look legitimate to them as well. How does one accomplish this? PROXIES PROXIES PROXIES. Use a program called 'Proxy Hunter' to look across the Internet for public proxy servers that you can bounce your traffic off of (Available in http://www.philly2600.net/satanklawz). Also, for those pesky telnet sessions, use a program called 'Cisco Scanner' to automate the grueling process of looking for open routers to bounce telnet sessions off of (Unix and Windows version available at the same location). You may also want to look across the Internet for ftp clients and other clients that let you use a proxy server. Why do you want to use a proxy server/cisco router to bounce? This is why; if you attack the target directly in the stack of the TCP/IP packets (The reason why we can send data over the internet) your MAC Address and IP Address are listed there for routing reasons. IE- you'll be traceable. Why doesn't the mythical IP Spoofing work? Well, it does, but not in this way. The common myth about IP Spoofing is that you can change you IP Address while keeping the original and still be able to route on the Internet. Why doesn't it work like that? IP Spoofing replaces the original source information with the fake, and when the attacked computer gets that information it's going to reply to the faked IP because that is whom it thinks sent the request. Proxy servers, on the other hand, do reroute the traffic to the original source. For a better and full detailed explanation as to how proxy servers work, ask me when I'm sober or search on google. Step 3: Profiling: Microcosm. Ok, so far your arsenal includes the following: IP Ranges, Server DNS Names, DNS Records, Human Contacts, etc etc, proxy servers, and routers. Time wise, you probably should be in Day 4 or 5 of the initial query. Anyways, now is the time to start scanning. Popular tools in this arena consist of SATAN, Nmap, NESSUS, and friends. Use your proxy server(s) to bounce the scans off of, and only perform 'Half-Connect' scans. Final note on scans; make them as slow as possible so that IDS's (Intrusion Detection System) don't flag the traffic as millicious. <More to come as soon as my hands get their feelings back from typing all of this out> Thanks to DJ DeSSoN for helping me check for mistakes. If you find any, IM me at 'satanklawz.'
These are pictures from some of the meetings, there was also images tagged from a hackathon.
This website is actually still online and judging by the files from 2013/2014 the site is still ran by Russell Handorf aka Santaklawz.
