	Subject: Cracking Web-Pages

	Hi ...

	I'm wondering how your cracking these pages ... on the net.  
	your using UNIX right?

	Thanks ...

We're wondering what drugs you are on. None of the hacks are signed 'attrition' or by any member of attrition. In some cases we are greeted by various hackers, but it is just that. Greetings. Further, if you read the large disclaimer: http://www.attrition.org/mirror/attrition/notes.html#warn * These mirrors are preserved for posterity and history. There is no reason to debate semantics of archiving these. We do NOT encourage this activity any more than criminal psychologists condone the activities of the ones they study. * ATTRITION.ORG does NOT condone hacking, compromising system security, or the defacement of web pages. * We are not in league with the people who hacked your site. We receive email about the hacks and we verify them. Once verified we use 'wget' to archive the hack. Sometimes this happens quickly if the mirror admins are reading their email. That only shows we are quick, NOT in league with anyone. And yes. We use unix here. But that has absolutely nothing to do with any remote system, their web page, or anything else.
