Dear Beholder,
   first, you should not use more than 75 characters per line.
Second, what you need is Crackers, NOT Hackers (see FAQ @
Next, if you wanna know about security exploits, you should browse
the archives of rootshell (
and/or those of bugtraq (,
where you will certainly find more than plenty of what you want,
particularly for a plain unpatched RedHat distribution.
For instance, a ftp problem was found and made lots of noise.

That said, good luck!

PS: as I understand it, Brian's problem is physical disconnection,
not firewalling. For the latter kind of problem, fwprc and/or httptunnel
would have been the ultimate answer. See the Firewall-Piercing mini-HOWTO
(takeover welcome), and

How do you know that what you call ``blue'' is the same as what someone else
calls ``blue''? What if someone else's feelings for red and blue are
interverted as compared to yours? These questions are irrelevant, because
the meaning of things doesn't lie in an unobservable intrinsic nature,
but precisely in their observable external behavior. There is no achievable
objectivity beyond the union of all possible intersubjectivities.
