o out into the public's eye (censorship... but it's also quite useful to block spammers and mail bombers).Whether you are a webmaster or whether you just have some ideas to share with the public, what you need is a mailing list. It has been proved that putting a mailing list on your website generates more returning visitors. Also, running a discussion or a moderated mailing list about one or many of your hobbies is quite fun.There are two kinds of mailing lists out there: web-based mailing lists and majordomo/minordomo mailing lists.Web-based mailing lists: these mailing lists are called that way because they are based on the web. That is, if you want one of those mailing lists you have toenter the company's website and purchase one (or sign up for a free mailing list, which usually has lesser features).The best free web-based mailing lists out there are Listbot (http://listbot.linkexchange.com) and Onelist (http://www.onelist.com).Majordomo/Minordomo - I don't know the origin of the name, but anyway, these mailing lists have tons of feature, they are easy to handle, it is extremely easy to transfer your entire mailing list from one place to another and most of all, they are far more secure than the web-based mailing lists.To get one, you could either get your own server and set up a majordomo or minordomo mailing list on it (the software itself is free), ask someone else to let you set up a mailing list on his server or find some company on the web that provides such mailing lists and hosts them on their server.Note about minordomo: AFAIK (As Far As I Know), Minordomo is a smaller version of Majordomo. In case I am mistaken (and I probably am, since this is a simple wild-ass guess), please Email me the correct definition of Minordomo to firstname.lastname@example.org (and maybe the origin of the name).How do I hack a mailing list?=============================During this tutorial, you will learn how to hack EVERY web-based mailing list, and perhaps some Majordomo/Minordomo mailing lists (note: this will not work on our mailing list, so don't even bother... ;-) ).First of all, you need to read the Sendmail tutorial in order to learn how to send fake mail. This tutorial can be found at blacksun.box.sk. We also advise youto read the Info-Gathering tutorial, available also at blacksun.box.sk.Now, I need you to understand what "social engineering" is.There are two ways to get a password:a) by using hacking skills to get it.b) by using social engineering, which mostly requires some hacking skills and maybe some info-gathering skills (and a little luck, of course).Here, let me explain. Social engineering is getting the password you want (for example: the password for the mailing list) by convincing someone to give it to you. So now you are probably saying "hey, this crap doesn't have anything to do with hacking at all!". Well, for your information, almost every social engineering "hack" will require some hacking skills, or will at least have more chances insucceeding if the attacker has these skills.The hack--------First of all, I advise you to try this own on a mailing list that YOU own. It isillegal to get a password to someone else's account, even if you don't use thepassword at all (just attempting to get the password is quite incriminating).I will describe the attack from the attacker's point of view, but this does notmean that I encourage you to do anything illegal.
