THE CATALYST A Student Publication of New College your significant other INTRUDER BREAKS INTO INTERNET James Reffell During the last few weeks, someone, most likely a nonstudent, used their hacking skills to gain unauthorized access to the campus computer Virtu. They intercepted passwords of over 60 students and faculty, including the superuser password (normally used only by the systems administrator) which allowed them to alter files within the system. Director of Campus Computing Duff Cooper was first alerted to the security breach when he got calls from CalTech, Columbia University, and Florida Light and Power informing him that someone with a New College account was interfering with their systems. Cooper checked the computer logs and then suspended the offending account. Damage control was difficult because it was not yet known how the intruder had entered the system, and because apparently there were more than one intruders using different paths of entry. A few accounts had been broken into using the standard amateur method of a dictionary crack'. The file containing the encrypted passwords is downloaded to the crackers computer, and a program is run that checks a list of words and phrases that are often used as passwords against the original file. If a match comes up, the cracker has a password Dictionary cracks are relatively easy to detect and rarely work against accounts that have difficult passwords. Cooper recommends that all users change their passwords regularly and follow the suggested guidelines for password choice in order to protect from future incursions of this type. The more dangerous intruder, however, used a much more subtle and effective approach. Using a student account, he or she used a program called a "packet-sniffer" to read the keystrokes of system users as they logged in keystrokes including login names and passwords. Cooper and others at the Campus Computing Center who had been working on security measures to counter the first "Hacker" continued on page 4 Volume IV, Issue 19 February 14, 1995 STUDENT MUGGED ON COCOANUT STREET Kate Fink "It's the road that everyone at New College uses to go downtown, because it's a quiet residential street ... I felt pretty safe," Trip Linnerooth said About five weeks ago, he was riding his bicycle down Cocoanut Street to go home from working at a bookstore downtown. Suddenly, around 18th Street, Linnerooth saw two black men in their late teens appear from the opposite side of the road, and began to approach him Two others appeared from the same side. It was about 5:00 pm, still light outside. "One of them pulled up a bat and started running toward me, and they all stood in front of the road so I couldn't get past," Linnerooth said. He..stopped his bicycle when he found he could not get past. "They said to get off the bike and give them the bike then they asked for money," he said, but he had no money to give them Linnerooth was amazed that no passerbys stopped while this was going on The baseball bat was visible, and there were people outside as well as traffic on the road. "All these cars were going by, and they [the four men] were all looking at the cars, but none stopped ... there were two people a block up the street, and they were watching," Linnerooth said The people, who appeared to live in the area, "didn't do anything." The four men cursed at Linnerooth and threatened him with the baseball bat. Finally, Linnerooth said, "A car went by, and they were distracted by the car, so I grabbed the bike and ran with it ... the guy with the baseball bat was a couple steps "Mugging" continued on page 4 Inside This Issue itorial ...................... ............... ... .... tter to the Editor ............... .................... 3 torial News ........................................ 5 ean Funding ............................ ........... 5 ylum (Graham's column) ....... ................ .... 6 utside the Ivory Tower ................................ 7 AC Minutes . . . . . . . . . . 7 nnouncements ......................................


2 The Catalyst February 7, 1995 Editorial For those of you who haven't heard, the pool is now open... sort of. The pool is only open from dawn to dusk. Many New College students aren't awake for most of those hours. Of course, the locked gate has never really stopped most students (witness the conveniently broken section of fence to its right) but the cops just might Swimming after hours is now officially trespassing-a misdemeanor offence. The official reasons for this tragedy are that were the pool open at night. the state would shut us down for insufficient lighting. Linked to this is the risk the college has been taking all these years. If a student were to drown through their own drunken stupidity, New College would nevertheless be liable, lighting or no. Bye bye pool. So what do we do about it? Aside from petitioning the SAC or taking up a campus wide collection, there's not much we can do about the lights. Perhaps some intrepid soul is brave enough to price these things and figure out the relative impracti cality of that suggestion. As to liability, Judy Roningen, Fitness Center Coordinator, has expressed a desire for lifeguards. This would almost definitely mean no night-swimming. But this is New College, we don't have to be orthodox! We could hire our own life guards, we could require that RA's spend 50% of their waking hours patrolling the pool for floating bodies, we could mandate water wings for all... More practically, we could sign a waiver. Practical or not. the sensible thing to do is to put the responsibility of keeping their lungs fluid-free on the students. As part of the fitness center orientation, students should be required to sign a form stating that they swim at their own risk, and the University is not liable in any way shape or form. The legalese would probably be a bit tricky, and no doubt some students would refuse to sign (on ethical grounds no doubt) but maybe just maybe we could convince the powers that be that we're old enough to play in the kiddie pool unsupervised. Nightswimming is a time-honored tradition here at New College. Bereft of the joys of the postWall dip in the spa, some students will just stay in their rooms, brooding, going slowly mad as their skin dehydrates and sloughs off. New College has few enough recreations for stressed-out students to enjoy in their spare hours. Let's not lose one of the more popular ones. Open the pool.

The Catalyst February 7, 1995 3 Letter to the Editor [The following letter was received over the Internet ed.] Dear Catalyst, This letter is in regard to your recent editorial, 'The Presi dency." Now why, when it is well known that all of you are so close to the center of the universe, are you picking and fretting about the presidency? Why, in my day, when we were unhappy about such processes we simply called a town meeting and voted to do something about it! Town meetings have great power at New College (unless you have changed the constitution significantly in the last few years) and many a creative solution has issued therefrom. Especially, you might consider reviving the monarchy. We are aware of the recent disfavor into which the English family has fallen; but the New College tradition never depended upon fawnings and lickings but upon the solid connection of the Queen to the school administration and the Cop Shop, i.e., such that Her Majesty could gayly intervene on behalf of bedraggled students. One hopes that this tradition continues and that the Queen holds Court whenever issues of great moment are afoot. Breathe life, then, by way of your next editorial, into that tradition and respectfully request that the Queen address this bothersome matter of presidential elections. A Royal Speech in Ham Center is called for (with interpreters, if there is need) so that the possibilities can be discussed. We suspect, too, that concerns regarding the Northern Province (Tampa administra tion) are ever in need of town meeting consideration So let it be written, so let it be done We remain, with fondest wishes and fonder memories, Her Royal Majesty, Queen Ansel I of New College. Care to speak your mind about what we say? Drop a reply to The Catalyst, and get that fifteen minutes of fame everyone keeps talking about. Statement from the Supervisor of Elections Spring New College S t udent Alliance elections will be held on Wednesday February 15 from 9:30am 7:00pm in Ham Center In this election, there is a significant change from past elections that all students and candidates should be aware of. Write-in candidates for an office, which are candidates that did not submit the petition o f nomination for a particular office with twenty-five signatures required by the New College Constitution to appear on the voting ballet, will not be allowed to place their student J.D.'s (or any other photo of themselves) on the election table. Nor will write-in candidates be permitted to place anything on the voting table indicating that they are a candidate for an office. This policy regarding write-ins is consistent with the Elections Code (Article 5.1, Section 9) of the New College Constitution which states, "No student shall be allowed to advertise for a write-in candidacy within the balloting area." This policy will help to prevent the problems and controversies that have arisen in previous New College Student Alliance elections. John Graham Box 538 Alumnus supports The Catalyst Starting this semester, The Catalyst is being sent to each member of the New College Board of Trustees. Their subscrip tions were bought by John Cranor, New College alum and Trustee member himself John Cranor, born in 1946, entered New College with the charter class in 1964 and graduated in 1967 with a bachelor's degree in economics and a minor in art history. He graduated from Harvard in 1971 with a master's of business administration degree. Since 1971, Cranor has served in a number of high administrative positions in the business world. His last job was President and chief executive officer of Kentucky Fried Chicken Corporation. Cranor is married to wife Kitty. They have one son and are expecting another child. The Catalyst wishes to express sincere thanks to John Cranor for his generous offering on behalf of this paper and the Trustee members


4 The Catalyst February 7, 1995 "Mugging" continued from page 1 "Hacker" continued from page 1 behind me ... I guess he threw it, and it hit me in the jaw and knocked me over." Linnerooth still has difficulties opening his mouth from the injury. The men took the bicycle back, and one started hitting it with the baseball bat. Linnerooth got up and told them to give the bicycle back to him. One or two of the men told the others, "Yeah, just give him his bike back." They gave it to him, and Linnerooth asked them why they had stopped him. 'They said, 'We can't have you white crackers coming through the neighborhood."' The men said they were part of a group called the "Vigilantes." A woman then pulled up in a car to ask Linnerooth if he was okay. Linnerooth said she had been too scared to come over," Linnerooth said. Linnerooth filed a police report that day Two days later, he decided to go down Cocoanut Street again, but in a car. "I saw one of the guys so I went and called the police ... they took about an hour to get there," Linnerooth said. He told the reporting officer about the Sunday incident and that he had seen one of the four men. He found the officer to be unsympathetic. "He said, -'Let me ask you one question: you're white. What were you doing riding your bike down Cocoanut?'" Though Linnerooth now drives to work, he said he would still ride his bicycle down Cocoanut Street, but would not hesitate to tum onto a side street if he sensed being in a danger ous situation. He considers it important that people realize how dangerous the area can be, however, despite its quiet appearance. 'This was in the afternoon. There were kids playing outside ... it was very crowded," he said. breaches noticed when the intruder gained superuser access. According to Cooper, the intruder proceeded to alter major system files, apparently in an attempt to create an undetectable "backdoor" into the system. Cooper commented that "they did a real good job. I'm really impressed," but added that he was angry at the intrusion. The Computing Center, which had already posted an announcement that all accounts were to be revalidated in order to secure the system, now shut down all accounts that had been broken into. This caused complaints among students unaware of the reasons for the closure of the accounts. Cooper apologized for the action, but said it was necessary to protect the system from the intruder, and that the students could revalidate their accounts in person. In the meantime, the Computing Center contacted the Campus Police, who referred them to a specialist from the USF campus. They managed to trace the intruder to his home ma chine, and have tentatively identified him as an a nonstudent. The police have not yet taken any action. The Computing Center has been working on strengthen ing security measures, which include restricting access to the password files and programs, and better logs of user activities. Cooper lamented the fact that the intruders used illegal methods to gain access to the system. "When people are sneaky, they're going to get caught." OPEN LETTER FROM CHANCELLOR REED The following is excerpts from an open letter from Chancellor Reed of the State University System's Board of Regents to faculty and staff. A copy was made available to The Catalyst by Dean Michalson. ed. Because of concerns expressed by employees and friends of the State University System of Florida, I want to clarify recent reports regarding budget reductions. The Board of Regents, the lO university presidents, and I want you to know that: In response to a directive form the Chairman of the Senate Ways and Means Committee, the Board was required to submit a plan to reduce the SUS [State University System] budget by 25 percent. This requirement was met on February l, 1995. *In our letter to the Senate, the Board said: "We do not recommend the implementation of this plan. Budget reductions of 25 percent would devastate our universities and destroy their ability to fulfil their individual missions." Concerned about pressures on the state budget, the Senate asked all state agencies to submit a 25 percent budget reduction plan to encourage them to focus on their priorities for providing services to our State's citizens. Many senators have reassured us that the SUS budget will not be reduced by 25 percent. The entire Legislature has stressed that, along with public safety, education is a top priority. The Governor's budget proposal also recognizes the priority importance of education, granting the State University System a modest 3% increase.


The Catalyst February 7, 1995 5 LOOKING FOR FUNDS IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES Rocky Swift In the constant scramble for funding here at New College, one of the sources student groups have elicited help from is the Dean's discretionary fund. This year, however, the nature of the fund has changed somewhat. For one thing, there really is no set discretionary fund. Any poor souls who get shafted by the SAC are probably going to be out of luck if they seek to weasel funds from Dean Michalson. Since this fall, he has turned over the administration of certain funds over to Mark Johnson in the Student Affairs Office. The money itself has different sources and purposes. First of all, there is the Collegiality Fund, which is furnished by the New College Foundation. It is intended to provide for food and drink at meetings that are attended by students and faculty. Other funds from the Foundation have been administered through the dean and warden's office for student affairs activi ties. Student projects that have benefited from this resource include the Race and Gender Symposium, the Multicultural Film Festival, the Gay and Lesbian Bisexual Symposium, Women's Awareness Month, and The Catalyst. Contrary to recent speculations, these funds have not been eliminated. To make life easier for Dean Michalson and students, Mark Johnson is now in charge of dishing out most of the money. Some of the money is discretionary, but the bulk of it is earmarked by the Foundation for certain projects. Fund gathering is a complicated process with many sources, many more needful projects and a gigantic bureaucracy in between. Part of the problem is that many things are bud geted without the funds to pay for them. All of the people talked to had only a partial grasp of where the money was coming from and where it was going. The point is, if you need money, your best bet by far is the SAC. Beyond that there are several other options you can try. For one, Mark Johnson has access to a limited amount of money that may or may not be available for student projects. The New College Foundation is another big maybe, but they are more likely to refer prospective money grubbers to other offices. The Alumni Association has a student grant committee that aids academically oriented projects for students. Applications for grants can be attained through Carol Ann Wilkerson. There is some cash out there folks but there's not much and it's hard to find.

6 The Catalyst February 7, 1995 Good Grammar: AKey toThreatening Letters Gralulm Strouse First-year students Jen Lushear and Suzanne Cohen woke up one day last week to discover a rather disturbing message taped to their door. The message, which was written on coffee-stained 8 lfl" by 11", unlined paper, reads as follows: ANNOYING, FAKE, RED-HEADED BITCH!!! YOU AND YOUR CREW SHOULD WATCH Ol.IT, COLLEGE IS NOT AS FUN AS YOU TIIINK WHEN YOU FUCK WITH THE WRONG PEOPLE. WATCH WHERE YOU TREAD BITCHES! Jen has never, to my knowledge been convicted of a felony, she does not drink eat's blood, and she bas never been caught dancjng with the devil in the pale moonlight She is, by all appearances, a nice enough sort of gal. Thus, this gangsta style threat came as a bit of a shock to her; enough of one that she posted several copies of the message in Ham Center with the addendum "If you can find the fourth-grader who wrote this, please contact rm. 207." Now nobody likes to receive anonymous threats. They raise one's blood pressure, rile up bad humors, and stir the mueslix in your bowels. More to the point, they're just plain scary. But I'm not here to talk about that, not yet at least. No, first I'd like to talk about a far more odious sin on the part of the message writer: Bad grammar. First of all, note that every adjective in the frrst line is followed by a comma. Now, I'm presuming that since Jen dyes her hair red, "fake" was originally intended to modify "red headed." However, as the note is written, "fake" is just one in a series of adjectives modifying "bitch", thus making Jen a "fake bitch". Is this some sort of backhanded compliment? Secondly, the address at the top of the message is a sentence fragment This would be fine had there been some sort of indicator that "Annoying, Fake, Read-Headed Bitch" was some sort of greeting. The writer could have introduced his invective in any number of ways; as a memo (i.e. To: Annoying, Fake, Red-Headed Bitch, From: Anonymous Slanderer, Re: Your Fucking With The Wrong People); as a simple letter ("Dear Annoying, Fake, Red-Headed Bitch,"); or if heJsheJit desired brevity, a simple address followed by a dash or comma would have sufficed. But noooo! Obviously, our mysterious imprecator believes poor grammar is inherently threatening As for the body of the message, all I can say is get real. This is New College. "You and your crew should watch out." Watch out for what? What are you gonna do? Recite passages from Beyond Good and Evil at all hours of the night outside their room? Grab a copy of Barthes SIZ and deconstruct them? Please. It would be wise of you to note, whoever you are, that most of the tougher chaps on campus, those with unusually well-developed musculatures and/or combat abilities are basically nice folks who don't take kindly to mysterious threats directed at bewil dered first year students. Capish? Pardon me for a moment while my testosterone simmers back down to a low boil. Although the identity of the letter writer remains unknown, there are a couple clues which might help direct Encyclopedia Brown and Sally towards uncovering the identity of this guerilla writer. The letter is written in bold, jagged, clumsy handwriting--very masculine-looking. Further support ing my thesis that the writer is a male is the fact that few women I knew are inclined to use phrases like "Watch where you tread bitches." Also, note the use of the word "tread." "To tread" is a moderately uncommon infinitive most often used by residents of Massachusetts, the "Don't tread on me" state Thus, the perpetrator is most likely a man from Massachusetts ... or perhaps a woman pretending to be one. Perry Mason, where are you when we need you? More seriously, I would like to suggest to the message writer (for this column is for you) that you take one of two courses of action: 1) Find Jen and "her crew" and explain (nicely) what in Lot's name drove you to post your little nasty-gram. Face-to-face dialogues between rational human beings are generally good things. 2) If the first option does not suit you than I suggest you crawl back into your fetid little hole of a dorm room and let this matter die quietly. If you have the urge to follow up on your clandes tine diatribe, you ought to think twice. Continuing this sort of thing constitutes a misdemeanor stalking charge, something which, if I am not mistaken, could get you kicked off campus Have a nice day.


The Catalyst February 7, 1995 7 OUTSIDE THE IVORY TOWER World News: Mexico -With a long history of election fraud, many are wondering just how free four gubernatorial elections will be. Especially as the opposition is heavily favored to win the governor's seat in the state of Jalisco. Some observers fear that hardline elements in the ruling PRI political party could grow violent should things not go their way. Sweden Subs, schumbs. In a rather humiliating admission, Swedish Defense Ministry analysts admitted that certain signals detected by the navy's antisubmarine buoy system were in fact the sounds of minks. Last Wednesday's report admitted that one week's-long sub hunt in the Baltic last spring was inspired by a soft, furry sea mammal. On another occasion, the navy depth charged a suspected enemy that turned out to be a rock. National News: Dan Quayle announced that he no longer intends to run for President in 1996. The former vice-president threw in the towel due to problems raising the estimated 20-million dollars that a presidential campaign would cost. Dick Cheny and former HUD secretary Jack Kemp have also dropped out of the race. Former Democratic Senator J. William Fulbright died last Thursday at age 89. Fulbright had been among the first senators to question American involvement in the Vietnam War. He was also the architect of the Fulbright scholarships, which have enabled nearly 750,000 students to study abroad. Rutgers University students say they'll continue demanding the resignation of school President Francis Lawrence, despite a Board of Governors decision to support him. The protest started when Mr. Lawrence asked his audience in a speech to forgive minorities for their genetic shortcomings and low test scores. Local News: Plans for a new university in Florida have been put on hold following the submission of a petition which contends that the university system overlooked potential environmental damage from the university's construction. The university is planned for Fort Myers, where it will replaced USF's Fort Myers branch.
