Pony-tailed, pot-bellied aging-hippie UNIX-guru skills :)

It helps if the target's server is running something with
known security holes that haven't been patched and if you have
the entire command set memorized. I'm not sure there was
much of a security plan on the other end of the snooping.

Your basic teen hacker with a dialup can't get near the
services they need to do this sort of stuff.

Hey, my Latin is perfectomundo. My Urdu sux. And I told
