mess your friends with aim (aol instant messenger)

aim this

here’s a fun one, not really a hack, well, we suppose it could be used for all sorts of things, like blackmailing your friends and family, or at least embarrassing them. if you and your friends use aim (aol instant messenger) or ichat you can send an aim “bot” to go and chat with your pal(s) and then have the conversation emailed back to you. this can be a lot of fun since you can choose the name of the “bot” like stacey, age, as in “17” and location– the classic “asl” (age, sex, location) you see in those chat rooms no one ever admits to visiting.

  1. Call me paranoid, but, don’t people remember that it’s not always the best idea to give third parties info like email addresses or chat names that belong to your friends?

  2. I think the first program to do something like this was named “Lisa.” Only instead of being over IM it ran from a dumb terminal. Transcripts of the conversations people had with it are publically available and in some cases quite interesting.

  3. Hey, I tried to use this with some ones iChat account (which uses AOL’s protocols). The site won’t let me put in an ID that has an underscore or @ in it, and both of those are in the ID of my target. Dang!

  4. personally id like to see some logs from other people. i pointed this thing at a friend and he knew within 3 or 4 messages it was a bot

  5. i’d like to see a hack that lets you im yur friends even when they’re signed off, or blocking you, and i’d like to see a hack that lets you moniter eberything they do on their computer, like a lil screen comes up and it shows exactly where their mouse clicks and what it clicks, can you say BLACKMAIL? and i’d like to see a hack that puts yur posts maxxed out on http://www.mytheme.com, so you can be a manager person,lol that’ll be fun,lolololololol

  6. better idea: create a screenname and just tell people it’s a bot, when in fact it’s you pretending to be the bot. dirty trick, but fun fun fun.
