"As long as there is technology, there will be hackers. As long as there
are hackers, there will be PHRACK magazine. We look forward to the next
20 years"

This is how the PHRACK63 Introduction was ending, telling everybody that
the Staff would have changed and to expect a release sometimes in
2006/2007. This is that release. This is the new staff, "The Circle of
Lost Hackers". Every new management requires a presentation and we decided
to do it by Prophiling ourselves. Useless to say, we'll keep anonymous,
mainly for security reasons that everyone understands.

Being anonymous doesn't mean at all being closed. Phrack staff has always
evolved, and will always evolve, depending on who really care about being
a smart-ass. The staff will always receive new people that cares about
writing cool articles, meet new authors and help them at publishing their
work in the best conditions. Grantee of freedom of speech will be
preserved. It is the identity of our journal.

Some people were starting to say that phrack would have never reborn. That
there would have never been a PHRACK64 issue. We heard that while we were
working on, we smiled and kept going on. Some others were saying that the
spirit was lost, that everything was lost.

No, Phrack is not dead. Neither is the spirit in it.

All the past Phrack editors have done a great work, making the Phrack
Magazine "the most technical, most original, the most Hacker magazine in
the world", written by the Underground for the Underground.
We are in debt with them, every single hacker, cracker or researcher
of the Underground should feel in debt with them.
For the work they did.
For the spirit they contributed to spread.
For the possibility of having a real Hacker magazine.

No, nothing is or was ever lost. Things change, security becomes a
business, some hackers sell exploits, others post for fame, but Phrack is
here, totally free, for the community. No business, no industry, no honey,

We know the burden of responsibility that we have and that's why we worked
hard to bring you this release. It wasn't an easy challenge at all, we
have lost some people during those months and met new ones. We decided to
make our first issue without a "real" CFP, but just limit it to the
closest people we had in the underground. A big thank to everyone who
participated. We needed to understand who really was involved and who was
lacking time, spirit or motivation: having each one a lot of work to do
(writing, reviewing, extending and coding) was the best way to succeed in
that. This is not a "change of direction", next issues will have their
official CFP and whatever article is (and has always been) welcome.

We know that we have a lot to learn, we're improving from our mistakes and
from the problems we've been facing. Aswell, we know that this release is
not "the perfect one", but we think that the right spirit is there and so
is the endeavor. The promise to make each new release a better one is a
challenge that we want to win.

No, Phrack is not dead. And will never die.
Long live to PHRACK.

Scene Shoutz:

All the people who helped us during the writing of this issue especialy 
assad, js, mx-, krk, sysk. Thank you for your support to Phrack. The
magazine deserve a good amount of work and it is not possible without
a strong and devoted team of hackers, admins, and coders.

The circle of lost hackers is not a precise entity and people can join
and quit it, but the main goal is always to give Phrack the release
deserved by the underground hacking community. You can join us whenever
you want to present a decent work to a wider range of peoples. We
also need reviewers on all topics related to hardware hacking and
body/mind experience.

All the retards who pretend to be blackhat on irc and did a pityful
attempt to leak Phrack on Full-Disclosure : Applause (Even the changes
in the title were so subtle, a pity you did not put any rm -fr in the
code, maybe you didnt know how to use uudecode ?)

Enjoy the magazine!
