ESS 7 IS OUT!!!! ESS 7 IS OUT!!!! ESS 7 IS OUT!!!! by: The Mortician [SWAT/PWA/ACiD/ADRENALINE/ConTrol Team] The Villain [ACiD/NPi/AiR/PWA] At this time the uses of ESS 7 are not known to us. We have discovered a couple things though. One of the things we have found is *67. You might call repair or an operator and ask them what *67 does. Your not going to get very far unless you talk to an operator who know's what's up. We called everywhere for about 3 hours until we finally got someone who knew what was going on. Everyone else gave us the answer,"I'm sorry, but we are not allowed to give out proprietary in formation." So, we got ahold of a person in repair who was very helpful to us. The person confirmed that yes, the Los Angeles area is running ESS 7 at this time. Whoooa!! Wait a minute!! I didn't even know we had ESS 6 yet! Obviously, Ma Bell is trying to keep this a secret, but of course, with people like The Mortician and The Villain in the PHAC scene, they aren't gonna get very far at keeping secrets (hehe, gotta put a plug in ). The worst thing about ESS 7 is that it doesn't matter whether you use a PBX or not. Pac Bell doesn't give a shit anymore. ESS 7 only knows two things. The number YOUR calling from, and the number YOUR line (which you dialed the number off of) is calling TO. I understand completely how this works because I (The Mortician) was busted for prank calling and changing the District Attorney of Pasadena's on the same day which ESS 7 was put into use. I was the first one they got to test their new system on. That's real nice to know.... The number I was calling to had a call trap on it. It really didn't matter to me cause I was using a few PBX's(3) to call to it. When the police came for me (while I was at work...those fuckin assholes ....), I didn't say a damn word to them. I did however convince them to let me see what evidence they had so far on the case. It just so happens that they had the new Pac Bell ESS 7 crap printed out from the call trap. The only thing Pac Bell got was the time the call started and how long it was for, and where the call started and where it went to. ESS 7 didn't give a shit about the PBX's I called. It doesn't matter anymore. I hear that the one way to defeat it right now is to call a local PBX, then from there call an OUT OF STATE PBX then call back to the number you want to call from there. The good thing is that the police didn't even know I used PBX's to make my calls because Pac Bell didn't report it since the new ESS 7 doesn't concern itself with all the in between crap and it doesn't monitor it. That's nice for me because they couldn't link me with any type of phreaking. Anywayz, do what you will with this info, but keep it undeground. They think this stuff is still secret, so as long as they think we don't know anything, the longer we'll hav e to find ways around it. Remember, none of the low level employees know about any of the new commands yet or what they do. One of the operators we talked to said, "hrmm, I don't know what *67 does, it must be one of the new functions. We don't have anything listed on it yet." Of course, when I asked them what it was a new function for, they told me to hold while they connected me with a supervisor. We have confirmed that ESS 6 IS NOT IN!! It IS ESS 7! It took 3 hours for us to finally get this info, if you call and ask what ESS they are using, they will give you a BS answer that it is private info and they can't give it out. Unless you get in touch with an inside person, or a really cool operator. I figure they are keeping it secret because they don't think we know what's going on. Then they are going to bust all the people who are dialing through PBX's believing that it is diverting the call still. Sorry guys, this is NOT ESS 5. You can forget it. They have your number, and the place you called. The good t hing is that they won't have the PBX number so they can't charge you with all that federal crap or whatever and if anyone shows up it will be the local police(o r whatever police from the city you called off the PBX). This is because the crime took place in their city. If you need more info, or would just like the Pas adena DA's home phone number and answer machine code(which by the way was 369 the last time I checked), then you can reach us, The Mortician at Sadistic Torment (818)XxX-XXxX and The Villain at Dark Society (408)NOT-4YOU. . . . ^ `____ + ________ __ ____ _|\ _ _ ______ __ _|\ ___ \ \ /.(__ __). | # /. // | \ \| (__ __)_ \/ | \/ / |\/: \/ | |/ \/ | | / |_// | \ : \/ \ _/ / | \ / + | | \ _ \\ / _ \ / | _\ : / . /\ / \ \ : /'---. |_____/_| /_\/\__| / \___ |_\___/__| /._\/__/\ \___/____/ |/ |/ \| |/ \__/NomaD93' : v . : ~ .
