|INTERVIEW WITH SLUTMAN, THE KING OF PORN SITE HACKERS
Pornography is one of the few things people are willing to pay for on the web. But any site that charges a membership fee is beset by hackers who try to break in illegally. The king of all porn hackers is a man who goes by the name of "Slutman". We spoke to Slutman in his lair (under a giant sign that reads, "Here I Am GOD!")
TP: So explain to us exactly what you do.
Slutman: I have eight computers running concurrently that try out logins and passwords on all the biggest porn sites. Its a brute force program that runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Every time a successful login and password comes up, its immediately posted to my site.
TP: And the passwords allow people to enter the site for free.
Slutman: Until the webmaster of the site finds out whats going on and they delete that user.
TP: Why do it?
Slutman: Dont know.
TP: Huh. So how many hits do you get to your site a day?
Slutman: At the height I used to get about 100,000 users a day, 300,000 or so impressions .number one password site on the net before I shut down.
TP: Yeah thats about what the TP gets, give or take 297,000 impressions.
Slutman: [Bored look.]
TP: So you shut down. Why?
Slutman: Death threats.
TP: [Questioning look.]
Slutman: I was threatened a couple of times, but I didnt really pay any attention. Then I got a guy who vowed to hunt me down and kill me. He started posting rewards in usenet groups for any information that could lead him to me?
TP: But youre totally anonymous, no?
Slutman: Some people knew who I was. He was offering something like $5000 in computer equipment for my address. Also, more and more passwords started coming up as, "Fuck Slutman" and "Die Slutman!"
TP: So you just shut down?
Slutman: I dont post to the site anymore, but I still run the programs. Im building up an inventory of passwords.
TP: For what?
Slutman: Cant tell you.
TP: Is what you do illegal?
Slutman: Yeah, but one, theyll have a very hard time finding me and two, its easier for them to just monitor my site and delete the corrupted accounts than to actually sue me.
TP: I suppose its easier to hunt you down and kill you than sue you.
TP: Why the name, "Slutman"?
Slutman: The band Gwar has a song, "Slutman City." I called the site "Slutman City" and I became "Slutman."
TP: So youre pretty adept with computers, but as I understand it, you dont have a job. Why not?
Slutman: Dont believe in it. Dont like having to show up at a certain time and work on someone elses projects. I could probably consult at $200 an hour, but why?
TP: [stunned silence]
Slutman: Dont worry, I have big plans for my empire.
TP: Of course. Ever break into a satire site?
Slutman: No interest.
Note We did not actually perform any investigative reporting to find Slutman. A TP staffer used to date Slutmans sister. We will not betray Slutman's identity for less than $10,000 in computer equipment. Sound clips of Slutman are unavailable as he declined to be interviewed on tape.
