Phreakers Hackers Underground Network
    P/HUN Magazine    


The P/HUN Newsletter was started in 1988 by Red Knight of the "Phreakers/Hackers Underground Network" and SysOp of the the "Hackers Den" BBS. (718-358-9209)

Red Knight's original email address was pdave@dasys1.UUCP and then phunmag@dasys1.UUCP on the Big Electric Cat public-access UNIX system.

It was, as they claim, 'dedicated to inform on subjects as defeating computer security / various aspects of telecommunication/cable/radio, and offcourse pyromania.'

Only five issues are known to have existed, but it included many infamous articles written by hackers who would become legendary in the "computer underground."
