Assange International Subversive
Here is "International Subversive" Vol#1, the Hacking E-zine produced / edited
by the Australian 'hacker' Mendax in 1991 (reference: Dreyfus, "Underground:
Tales of hacking, madness and obsession on the electronic frontier" Ch.8
) aka Assange
The document came to me in several pieces - I've made no changes to the content
other than to stick them together in order and add in some formatting (spaces)
that tidy up some of the headings, so all spelling mistakes etc are originals
(there are two section "2.4" & two section "2.7", the later of each should
be sections "2.5" & "2.8" respectively I guess according to the contents
section). Best viewed with a fixed-width font.
The E-zine lists its editor as 'The Chthonic Hvee', presumably Mendax wielded
his electronic editorial pen to publish under a different alias (in the same
way he was able to change is alias from 'proff' to 'Mendax' being a research
contributor to the Dreyfus book. Interesting.).
I can't confirm the original source of the document or the accuracy of its
content so it comes to you with all appropriate disclaimers - perhaps some
of Cryptomes readers will be familiar with the incidents , etc., discussed
within and can comment further, if you decide to publish this.
