    hehehe!

    just got my roommate to restart his computer!

    that was fun!

    how traceable is this?

    if I were to send pro-mac/anti-Windows messages to my programming prof during class when he has his laptop hooked to the projector doing a presentation it could be insanely hilarious!

    OMG, I can't wait to go in the eMac lab at school tomorrow!

    Just to clarify, what name do I put in. Would it be the name (ie. Brian_king) on the login window?

    Well, if you read the comments in the link, there are some helpful tips. Type findsmb and it will list the NETBIOS names of the other computers on the network.

    For pranking, make sure you enter a bogus -U name or the popup will state the name of your computer and you'll get caught.

    Happy hunting! ;)

    This sounds like the Mac equivalent of net send.

    I've had much fun with that at school already ;).

    Ok, a few questions.

    When we type "smbclient -M NETBIOSNAME -U FROMNAME" into Terminal, what do we put where?

    Shoud I type "Restart your computer" where it says "FROMNAME"?

    And what goes under "NETBIOSNAME"?

    Is there anyway to make this popup completely anonymous?

    No. You should put the name of whomever you want your message to come from. So, for example, if you want to tell them to shut down their computer, you could make some B.S. up like "System" or "Win32 Error Command" or whatever tickles your fancy. If you use more than one word in the from name, put it in single quotes.

    This is the name (not the IP number) used to identify the computer you are sending the message to. Type findsmb to get a list of the NETBIOS names on the network.

    Not exactly. The popup's title bar will have a message saying something like "YourComputer received a message at 10:03:17 from Bill Gates". If you don't include a -U term (who the message is from), it will automatically state the NETBIOS name of your computer, and get you in trouble if the name is easily traceable. But as long as you make something up, your NETBIOS won't appear.

    Once you've done all this and hit return, you will get a message saying you have connected to the other computer. It will tell you to enter your message and press Control D when you are done. When I did it, there seemed to be a time limit of about 30 seconds (maybe 60). If I took too long, it would automatically send an empty message. So I suggest composing your message beforehand and then just copying and pasting it in once you've established a connection. Then Control D and it's on its way.

    I've got a story, I convinced my roommate that something was wrong with the campus server so that he would restart, and then shortly after he got everything going again, I sent this message:

    Random Win2000 Error.
    (unknown.dll not found)
    Click OK to acknowledge that Windows sucks.

    He laughed really hard, I played along and laughed too. He gladly clicked OK, and has no idea it was me that sent the message in the first place.

    That's excellent! :D

    Unfortunately, I'm no actor and couldn't keep a straight face when my wife was puzzling over her messages, and I gave myself away instantly. Ah well, I'm still going to get my Dad.

    Dave...DAVE....ARE YOU THERE DAVE?

    Is this in any way related to the Messenger service in Windows? I know that spammers have been using this method to spam the crap out of Windows (Specifically NT, 2K, and XP because they are the only ones to have the Messenger svc.) through this service. Disabling the service disables the ability to do this.
    To be honest in the right hands this is a great tool. When I have to do maintenance on a server I can check and see who's on it and dump out a blanket net send message to all of them asking them to get off. More accurately:
    "This is your computer. Jonathan your hard working IT person is shoveling coal into the server to keep it going. He has requested that I ask you to log out of X server for the day so he can repair the server's boilers. Thank you. -HAL

    Amazing the number of call I got off of that. :D

    Oh and don't get me started on wireless with the net send message. My neighbor across the street has a WIFI network and I being a wardriver have a WIFI network and a very good external antenna. All the better to sniff your packets my dear...(Wait that sounded WRONG.) Anyways. Forget the TV. Sitting in a darkened room with the curtains drawn with a pair of binoculars and my laptop with the antenna aimed out my window is fun as heck. You see his den is facing the street. So I can see he reactions to various messages that pop up on his screen. It really is gold. Like:

    WARNING: THE PORN ON YOUR HARD DRIVE IS FRAGMENTED PLEASE DEFRAG YOUR SYSTEM NOW TO AVOID SLOWING THE PERFORMANCE OF YOUR PORN EXPERIENCE.

    WARNING: YOUR SYSTEM HAS DETECTED A POTENTIAL CORUPT SYSTEM FILE. PLEASE LOCATE THE CLOSEST APPLE STORE AND CONTACT AN APPLE REPRESENTATIVE FOR THE BEST REPAIR PROCEDURE.

    ATTENTION! YOUR HARD DRIVE…..OH SORRY. WRONG COMPUTER.

    NOTE: OBJECT ON THE SCREEN MAY BE CLOSER THEN THEY APPEAR. DECREASE YOUR RESOLUTION TO CORRECT THIS ISSUE.


    Trust me. I have a million of them. :) Screw reality TV. Forget TV. Your neighbor is more fun.

    Yeah. A good friend of mine sent a message to the whole business, computer science, and communication wing segment on our schools LAN that said '**** missy elliot', because I had just sent one saying 'Missy Elliot pwns'. Well, it says which computer sent each message and he had to go apologize to a teacher.

    I don't know if this will work with the method stated in this thread, but with netsend, when you specify the destination address you can use a wildcard symbol (*) to send to multiple computers.

    For example:
    net send 192.168.1.* would send to all the computers on 192.168.1.0 to 192.168.1.255.

    and net send * would send to all computers on the broadcast domain.

    That is what my friend did :rolleyes: :D.

    I tried net sending to my mom's iMac from my PC and nothing happened :eek: :p ;).

    This is unrelated, but once I programmed the family computer to say
    'Hi!
    Do you want to join my animorphs club! There are over 50 members, and a weekly newsletter.
    Blah blah blah...' when you pressed !
    and my sister was typing up a school paper.

    She tried to type ! and the animorphs message popped up and she typed 'Who are you?' in the word document. I got a kick out of that. :D

    Although I never got to use netsend or anything like this, as a 'going out of our 1st yr in highschool prank', we installed VNC on every PC in the library lab, and than wandered off to a different part of the campus, to a nice closed off pc lab, with nice towers and lcd panels. There we logged into VNC, saw what everyone was doing, i.e. researching, and basically we just ****ed with their heads. :)

    We didnt do anything malicious like close documents or trash anything -- that would be cruel. But it sure was funny seeing people flip out [we had people stationed in the library posing as regular computer users, communicating with me via 3-way cellphone convos]. That was some of the most fun I have ever had!

    I still hear about the day that browsers just started closing, text just started showing up, and cursors were possessed ;)

    Twas mucho fun :)

    Would this work if I were to enter someone's IP address, or do they have to be on a network with me?
