Calling All Ghouls

Show Archive
Date: Friday - August 22, 2003
Host: George Noory
Guests: Open Lines, Kevin Mitnick

This Friday night, George opened a special topic line for Ghouls and Vampires, which drew some interesting characters out of the woodwork. There was a vampire who said he was on the prowl on the street, but that he sucked energy rather than blood. A bartender from New Orleans told of an eloquent Goth vampire who startled him with his retractable fangs.

Other intriguing calls included an artist who said she was "driven by outside forces," to create demonic "death drawings," which depicted such things as human/animal mixtures. In the three times she gave this type of art to other people, they all came to untimely ends shortly after getting her work.

At a bonfire with friends in the South Missouri woods, a caller told of capturing a 4-ft. tall gray critter, that seemed more human than animal. It was currently being kept in a cage in the garage and "it loves meat," he said. Another strange creature tale came from a woman in Massachusetts who described seeing a male and female Bigfoot crossing Route 20 while she was delivering papers in the wee hours. The pair was very large, walked upright, and curiously the female was carrying a basket not unlike a purse.

As the Worm Turns

Security consultant and ex-hacker Kevin Mitnick appeared during the first hour of Friday's show to discuss the recent bout of computer viruses and worms. The "Sobig.F" worm which caused inundations of unwanted email across the world, used "classical social engineering," Mitnick said. By having appealing sounding names such as "Thank you!" and "Approved," in the subject line, many people opened the attachments, which often appeared to be sent by known persons, thus infecting their computers and further spreading the worm, he explained.

The culprit could have launched this attack anonymously out of an Internet Cafe, Mitnick speculated, and might have used source code of previous worms and viruses (posted on the Internet) to develop or piece together Sobig.F. "It's really hard to tell," what their motivation is said Mitnick, though he does differentiate between computer hackers and virus writers.
