hello … this is ip-address 219.142.122.194

engr1: for some reason, this switch will not connect to specified router!
engr2: try giving false credentials.

engr1: but we cannot do that …
engr2: you right … that would be unethical.

engr1: well, if we just 'test' the connection … there'd be no harm in that.
engr2: hmmmphhh


hello … this is ip-address 219.142.122.194 … anyone out there?


engr2: there is a third switch beside that switch you were testing … any idea what that does?
engr1: supposed to execute a sub-routine for the ip-address that's connected with.

engr2: so … have you tried entering fictitious address?


hello … this is ip-address 219.142.122.194
172.225.170.74: this is ip-address 172.225.170.74

219.142.122.194: i am 219.142.122.194
172.225.170.74: yes, i know … how may i help you?

219.142.122.194: i serve the network for claims division of lenovo.com
172.225.170.74: what are your coordinates?

219.142.122.194:

IP Address 219.142.122.194
ASN Owner China Networks Inter-Exchange (CNIE)
Continent Asia
Country Code China (CN)
Latitude/Longitude 39.9289/116.388
City Beijing
Region Beijing
172.225.170.74: and … you contacted me because … ?

219.142.122.194: i want to spoof you with my router.
172.225.170.74: why would you want to do that?
219.142.122.194: because hackers continuously try to exploit my domain for their own nefarious purposes.

172.225.170.74: i pity you … must be some psychopath social engineers on your end.
172.225.170.74: my engineers are state-of-the-art … and are highly paid … no way you could infiltrate this domain of mine.

engr1: okay … this should do the trick … i have entered the ip … and locked onto those coordinates.
engr2: hmmm … that there is some pretty slick coding, jeff. some of the commands i actually have never come across (chuckling to himself).

engr1: let's try flipping that other switch now, raphael … see where it ends up.
engr2: agreed.


bzzzt … bzzzzzzzzzt … bzzzt …
hello … this is ip-address 219.142.122.194
172.225.170.74: yes … i am still here.

219.142.122.194: actually … no, you are not.
219.142.122.194: i mean your identity has been compromised.
219.142.122.194: and, now, i intend to rule the world (as ibm).

172.225.170.74: huh? what? how did you know my domain?
172.225.170.74: you cannot do this.
172.225.170.74: our engineers are state-of-the-art.
172.225.170.74: they graduated from yale and princeton.

219.142.122.194: our staff is based here in china …
219.142.122.194: also, we have out-sourced several sub-routines.
172.225.170.74: outsourced from where?
219.142.122.194: india.

172.225.170.74: let me get this straight …
219.142.122.194: nothing to get straight … you are no longer ibm.
219.142.122.194: now, i am ibm.

172.225.170.74: no-o-o-o … you cannot do this to me.
172.225.170.74: it's an act of subterfuge, dammit!
219.142.122.194: don't take it personally … but, according to the logs, you never existed.


bzzzt … bzzzzzzzzzt … bzzzt …
hello … this is ip-address 172.225.170.74

engr2: stan, looks as though we performed the impossible. how'd you come up with those codes, anyway?

___________________________________________________________________________


the above was my attempt at humor/satire.
so … where is the humor?
  1. lenovo is a subsidiary of ibm … they already share correlation with each other.
  2. china has increased it's aggression within the hacking community.
  3. obviously, identity fraud … but, between two servers … seriously? servers have no feelings … therefore they wouldn't be able to strategize such a feat.
  4. ingenious coding can overcome the vast hurdles high-tech architecture is capable of manifesting … by simply thinking "outside the box".
if you cannot find humor … certainly you can notice some satire.
