The 2600: The Hacker Quarterly is a quarterly US magazine and is one of the most important magazines in the hacking and phreaking scene . It was founded in 1984 by Eric Corley , also known as Emmanuel Goldstein , and primarily deals with security gaps in information and communication technology . The magazine got its name from a tone of 2600 Hz used by phreaters in the late 1960s , which was used in the context of blue boxing . This enabled free phone calls to be obtained by fraud in the American telephone system of that time.
In 1999 the magazine was sued by eight US film studios for publishing the DeCSS code, citing the Digital Millennium Copyright Act . After a high-profile lawsuit in New York, 2600 had to remove not only DeCSS from their website, but also all links to other websites where DeCSS was available. The 2001 revision also lost 2600 .
On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the magazine, the first conference of the series Hackers on Planet Earth took place in 1994 .
