KTRI Broadcast Corrupted

by Thane Carios

(UUNN HQ) At approximately 02:00 on 118.2.2 the KTRI news ticker channel became corrupted and began periodically broadcasting gibberish.

TRI reports that the broadcast is currently stuck in a loop. Engineers are attempting to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.

“At first we thought it was a software issue,” said Tristan Kamihira, TRI Corporation’s Director of Sector Assets, “But now we have determined that it is hardware-related.  We have dispatched a team to look at each of the subspace transceivers.  So that may take a little while.”

“I’m sure it’s nothing to worry about,” he added.  “Things should be back to normal soon.”


TRI Security Releases Statement

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ)  TRI Security has released the following statement regarding this morning’s hack of TRI Databank.

We have determined that the hacking of TRI Databank this morning was a very minor security breach impacting only the home page for the databank system.  No other data was corrupted and we have found no evidence that any critical systems have been touched.


TRI Databank Hacked

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ)  TRI Databank, which serves as the public access point to TRI Corporation’s extensive cultural, historical and technical archives was apparently hacked today, raising fears that TRI’s systems could have been compromised in even more serious ways.

The hack is a fairly simple graphic with a somewhat ominous message.


TRI Corporation has refused to make a statement until more is known about the situation.


KTRI Problems Traced to Narrow Canal

UUNN Newswire

********** BREAKING NEWS **********

(Solrain Core) TRI-GATE engineers have determined that the problem interfering with proper KTRI ticker updates is the Subspace Transceiver in The Narrow Canal.  Apparently the transceiver is damaged, but has not been broadcasting the damage codes that are supposed to alert KTRI that there is a problem.

More details will be made available as they are available.


TRI Responds to Reports of Enforcer Attack

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ) After corroborated pilot reports that a TRI-Enforcer-type ship was involved in an attack on the convoy transporting engineers to Amananth, Dominic Serus, Vice President of TRI-DEF (TRI Defense & Security), released the following statement.

TRI Corporation was in no way involved in last evening’s attack in Amananth. Two of our engineers were on the Tow that was attacked. As we have said in the past when there were alleged sightings of TRI Enforcers doing questionable things — we have just two ships remaining in our security fleet: TRI-SEC-1 and TRI-SEC-2. There are no others.

In the past we had dismissed the Enforcer-sighting pretty much out of hand since weTRI Enforcer knew it was not our ships. But now, with multiple reports from highly respected pilots, we must admit that — somehow — someone either managed to salvage one of the ships from the old TRI fleet . . . or has managed to copy the design. Neither is a very comfortable realization.

Although there are confirmed reports that the Enforcer with transponder code 303031 was destroyed, there is no guarantee that whoever is behind this may not have additional Enforcer hulls available.

We will be increasing patrols with TRI-SEC-1 and TRI-SEC-2. Any sightings of any other TRI-Enforcer “style” ships should be reported immediately.


GBS Disk Documents ISU Attempt to Hack TEC

(UUNN HQ) An optical disk found on GBS Station appears to include a partial recounting of an ISU attempt to hack into the Hyperweb accounts for the now-defunct TRI Evolutionary Council (TEC).

ISU, the Independent Space Union, made GBS Station home for several years.  Led by pilot ISU LogoRidgeway in his infamous Oct ‘battle-tow,’ ISU recruited a skilled, if unruly, roster of pilots including Bronx, FS_Space, Hadur, Fetch,  NeoFX, Sephiroth, and Vagrant.   While other squads were occupied with faction wars, ISU was one of the major forces controlling unregulated space, often going head to head with TRI in the process.

The disk was found in an old ISU storage area by Torn Danton, proprietor of The SpaceBar Pub and former military colleague of ISU-member Vagrant.  Danton, out of curiosity, had the disk worked-on and the data recovered.

“I just figured it might be some of Ridgeway’s famous porn collection,” said Danton.  “Frankly I had no idea that ISU was into anything as subtle as hacking the Hyperweb.  They usually took a more ‘kick-your-ass-to-find out’ approach to intel-gathering.”

Although there is nothing in the recovered material to date it, there is speculation that this invasion of TEC’s data systems could be linked to ISU’s somewhat sudden disappearance in 104.
