    Default We Had A Problem Here at Insomniacs Lounge

    We Had A Problem Here
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------ --------
    On October 23, 2004 - A criminal scored another target by deleting this entire forum. Nothing left what so ever. I can think of one reason only, why someone would do that to a posting forum and that is, a post must have been made against him that he didn't want anyone reading, so instead of just deleting the post, he decides to delete the forum. There are seven posters names that were deleted from our files.

    The HACKER went in and used Lanidar2000, who is an Administrator to do his dirty work. Then before leaving Insom, he changed my password so that I couldn't log in!

    It isn't costing Insomniacs Lounge one thing but a little time to put back the banners, links and forums and let the posting start again. I'm just relieved that what happened here isn't anything like what happened to this place:::

    In February 2003, Russian organized crime scored another target by taking control of the largest Internet gaming enterprise that operates 120 gambling websites. The shutdown was devastating. According to Juan Bonilla, executive vice president of Softek, located in San Juan, Costa Rica, “The payoff to restore service was insignificant compared to loss of data containing names of customers and other operational records destroyed once the DOS attacks were unleashed.” In a miraculous feat, Bill Margeson, president of CBL Data Recovery Technologies, and staff technicians recovered the valuable data. They discovered the Russian criminals had bypassed firewalls and other security systems and inserted a virus into the five servers that
    Softek used for online operations. “It was akin to hacking into the Pentagon,” Margeson told investigators.

    Now isn't that a shame, that something like that happened to the owner of
    Softek, located in San Juan Costa Rica, just horrible! And I'm sure he's such a great guy that he would never consider doing anything harmful against or to another person.

    By the way, I checked the log files, and here is the IP of the person responsible for deleting Insomniacs Lounge 65.182.30.15. And what a coincidence, it traces back to Costa Rica.

    I, Lanidar, also received this email last night:

    "Hello John,

    Please contact me at 1-888-824-6874 or give me a contact number where I can reach you.

    Regards,

    General Manager"


    Strange, isn't it?

    Why is everything in bold print? Are you yelling at us? Why don't you use all caps, also?

    That's just the way he posts, Kidd.

    I moved this thread to the Freshman Forum, where it's a more pertinent topic.

    Sorry to hear all that, Lanidar.

    Either caps or bold print could be considered yelling, or used to stress words or points.

    When you make the entire post that way, no single point or statement is able to stand out. (we are not scolding as much as helping others understand the situation)

    I personally know how you feel about the DOS attacks, I myself have helped others with these attacks, as well as have personal experience on my own servers with these...(even recently)

    I have seen some attacks just about take down bandwidth providers and NOC's...and even cause problems with some of the Local Telephone Service Providers. Trust me when that happens, the NOC Management and staff is fully involved in the outcome of the situation.

    I witnessed one attack once, that completely choked an OC-48.

    Sorry to hear that. My forum was hacked twice, but consequences were not that bad. What forum engine did you use? I think your hoster should have backup, so I hope you'll be able to restore at least the biggest part of the forum.

    Thank you...We use E-zboard. As of yesterday E-zboard said that they can probably rollback to the day before the hacking took place.
    Jinnia and I are waiting for a positive action.
