Thread: please update your computer

  1. #1

    I just did THOUSANDS of people a favor this morning, and they'll never even know it...

    After it was reported to me I quickly tracked down a "storage" site on a server in our data center where everything from yahoo usernames and passwords were stored all the way up to paypal accounts, credit card numbers, and online banking accounts...this automated system was a call back for a recent Internet Explorer key logging exploit...basicly you get the virus, it logs your keystrokes even on SECURE sites, then relays them back to this "database"...no it won't track IM convos or other normal text stuff, it's built for one reason to get your private information on login/account pages.

    I ripped the site to another server before informing the owner of the server to remove it now...odds are from the way it looks the server was hacked and this data collection software was put on it, not to mention the FBI and homeland security now know about it since it was traced to someone in russia who started it. but anyway the database of info this thing captured was a 15mb text file....I was looking through it just to see how much shit it actually got and 10% of the way through the file I had enough info to leave the country and live bigtime rich for the rest of my life...so as a word of warning run windows update at least once a week and get some kinda virus software on your pc...I also don't want to hear any "mac's are better" talk because I can show you cute little ways to exploit them as well...you want to call yourself secure? then unplug your computer...this is simply a word of warning to ALL of you...you see the pretty colors and the funny smilies and I see all the shit that goes on behind all that...it's scary even to me and I see it everyday...



    below is a small clip of what the data looks like, I've edited it with fake info (duh) but you can get the idea

    Thanks for the warning Hax!
    I just don't end up where think I'm going when I start out.

    the sad part to all this is that this stuff goes on all the time, it just happens that this was one of the bigger more notable things I've found...ironcily I found on our records when the FBI was hanging out with us last month this was one of the same servers they were interested in.

    I took over the server lastnight after the owner failed to do anything about removing the site, so I changed the password, got in, and got all the files together that looked to be of interest and I uploaded about half a gig to another server. So now I have a copy of the software that was doing this and the server is offline. I'm going to pick it apart when I have time and try to reverse engineer it into something useful to play with.
