Hey Dan, I noticed the link to the blog referencing Jeremy Casteel's term paper. I wanted to point out that the term paper is a blatantly plagarized copy of an article I did in 2004. I posted a link to it below. It isn't that big of a deal, but I don't think the little weasel should get any more press.


I know from friends of mine in education that this is not a rare event. Thankfully, University teachers are getting more savvy now, and often pick phrases from submitted work to put in Google. Often this very quickly locates the source of the essay.

Why "Blue Box"?

  • We chose the name "Blue Box" primarily as a nod to the era of phone phreaking in part to illustrate that threats to telephony are not new - they just continue to change and evolve. That and admittedly the name just sounded cool.
