WARNING ZOC99 FROM GERMANY IS DOING SOMETHING VERY NASTY.
I won't go into all the details but this is what the OS/2 PM
terminal program called ZOC does.
It will allow you to call your local BBS.
It will allow the modem to connect.
It will hangup the line
It will IMMEDIATLY dial out on its own to a number in GERMANY!
It will start out with a prefix that calls your local 911 emergency number.
Even deleting the German phone numbers in the directory will not stop this.
911 called me back wanting to know what the problem is..
IF YOUR A RESPONSIBLE SYSOP YOU WILL DELETE THIS GD GARBAGE FROM
GET THE WORD OUT. POST LIKE MAD. MAKE YOUR LOCAL SYSOP DELETE THIS
FROM HIS ARCHIVES.
We don't need to be clogging the 911 lines with accidental calls.
God forbid if you accidently called the German Number.
I'd like to beat the kraut out of the idiot that programmed this demo.
Needless to say I'll NEVER run anything by the author of ZOC
.. I don't do Windows, but OS/2 does.
