P4NTZ/H4GiS - W0RLD D0M1N4T10N '97


For the past month, anyone who has viewed Yahoo's page & used their search engine, now has a logic
bomb/worm implanted deep within their computer.

The worm part of this 'virus,' (in layman's terms) spreads itself across internal networks that the
infected machine is on.

Binary programs are also infected.

On Christmas Day, 1997, the logic bomb part of this 'virus,' will become active, wreaking havoc upon
the entire planet's networks.

The virus can be stopped.

But not by mortals.

An antidote program has been written.

This program is resting somewhere on a computer in the southeastern hemisphere.

The U.S. government will be notified of the precise location of the antidote program upon the
immediate release of Kevin Mitnick.

In the meantime, it would be a wise move on the part of the children of corporate and militant
America to remove all money they have in any financial institutions. One of the many functions of our
virus is that it will cause an acceleration of clocks to the year 2000.

The PANTS/HAGIS alliance has taken control of the world's computers. We own everyone, and everything.
No one is safe. No computer is safe.

Our goal, which we have achieved, is world domination.

The Fail Safe: [From H4G1S, PANTS, and the MLF]

On February 14 1995, Kevin David Mitnick was incarcerated for the sole purpose of furthering the
egomaniacal agenda of the United States secret service (cervix), and the self aggrandizement of both
would be "security expert" Shimomura and has-been media lackey John Markoff.

To commemorate this date and further etch our outrage into the hearts and minds of corporate and
militant America, we have built in a fail safe:

On exactly 01:00 hours February 14, 1997 there will be a nationwide failure of powergrids in
strategic locations. Remember, this will only occur if Kevin David Mitnick is not released and
exonerated of all trumped up charges made against him.

And now, a note from PANTS:

Kevin Mitnick was wrongly jailed for a crime he did not commit. Everyone is well aware of the fact
that Mitnick was *not* behind the attack on Shimomura's computers. Tsutomu Shimomura is a hypocrite,
who is out to make a fast buck & a name for himself. Throughout the entire course of his & John
Markoff's lame excuse for a book, he trashes Mitnick's mocks him for 'not having a life.'

He makes no mention, however, of his own illicit activities with cellular phones.

Mitnick did what he did out of intellectual curiosity, without compromising the hacker ethic. The
goal of Shimomura's activity, however, was merely to listen in on other people's conversations. If
Mitnick doesn't have a life or ethics for checking someone's email for reasons of self
preservation... then what does that say about Shimomura, who eavesdrops on unknowing victims for

Shimomura also constantly slams hackers as being 'clueless,' and 'ankle-biters.'

"h3y m1zt3r s3kUr1ty 3xp3rt.. 1ph y00'r3 s0 el8, h0w k0m3 u'r3 alw4yz g3tt1ng 0wn3d by u$

Tsutomu is a puppet of an increasingly Orwellian government. He is owned by PANTS & H4G1S. (Not to
mention quite a few other individuals, who shall remain nameless.)

The media hails Tsutomu Shimomura as "cyberspace's top cop."

The media forgets that the policemen of cyberspace are no different than their analog world
counterparts. Which is to say, 99% of the time, they're completely fucking retarded and inept.

After being incarcerated, Mitnick's rights were continually violated. (As they have been in the past.
Refer to Jonathan Littmann's "The Fugitive Game."). Ridiculous things ranging from not being allowed
to use the phone (h3 m1ght wh1$tl3 th3 l4Unch k0d3z & st4rt w0rld w4r 3!@$) to being put in solitary
confinement because the prison officials believed he could turn his walkman radio into a device with
which he could tap their offices. However, not having access to any sort of soldering equipment, and
the fact that being a prisoner means HE IS IN A CELL ALL DAY, this would obviously be quite
impossible. He is also prohibited from using a computer to assist him in researching for his case,
despite the fact that the library computer is not connected to a phone line, or with the outside
world in any other way. This limitation makes the task of defending himself nearly impossible, which
is exactly what they want.

The EFF has, of course, stepped in with their own hypocritical two cents ("Mitnick is an electronic
miscreant," etc, etc). This is no different from their actions in the past.. however, we expected
better from the supposedly libertarian John Perry Barlow. Shows what happens when you listen to the
government & the popular media, I guess...

"You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen
these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle
for independence."
