Well, after quite some time trying to hack into my Uni's main computer (a
RISC 6000 running AIX 3.2), I finally did it!. How? ok. Can you imagine this
incompetent administrator who hasn't yet patched that old "rlogin -l
-froot ..."
bug in AIX 3? Je, Je. Bottomline: Don't hesitate to try those GOLTS (Good Old
Tricks), you might be amazed about how many lamer-Sysops are out-there...
