Thread: Security issues?
04-19-2002, 07:07 PM #1
I've noticed that when I log-on to this and other forums, someone is trying to probe my TCP ports.
For some reason, my computer crashed while on another board and when I booted my comp, my virus prog found a trojan on my hard drive.
I got the firewall logs to prove this.
Has anybody had this problem?
If so, please pm me the I..P address so I can pin point this a-hole.
I'm currently tracking the MOFO behind this and he better hide or else I'll fry his comp back to the stone age!

Your firewall log should have the i..p address of the person scanning you on each port attempt. use that ** and tracert.org or arin.net to find out where they are locate and let their ISP know. Most ISP's will shut down somebody for port scanning.

only way u get a trojan is if u downloaded it, did u accept files from someone? a website will not give u trojans
Have you gone to a website and then without notice you've got a phone sex dialer on your start menu?
Same principal, different aproach, IE is full of security holes.
The lil bugger is using an AOL account, I've notified them so I'll see what happens.
I guess it was not related to the forums but I just wanted to make sure.
