Thread: Hackers

    Default Hackers

    Members:

    Occasionally hackers try to access our board. One method they use is to try to guess a member's password. When this happens, our system will automatically send you an e-mail (see below) after their 5th failure alerting you that someone is trying to get into your account. If you have a relatively strong password, there is nothing to worry about. If your password is weak, that hacker, depending on their level of sophistication, could actually figure it out. Here is a link to a page that will help you learn more about choosing strong passwords: http://www.lockdown.co.uk/?pg=password_guide

    To our knowledge, we've never had a member account hacked but it is possible so we wanted our members to be informed if they receive an e-mail like the following:

    =====================
    Dear [user name],

    Someone has tried to log into your account on DrumChat.com - Drummer Forum / DRUM FORUM for Drums with an incorrect password at least 5 times. This person has been prevented from attempting to login to your account for the next 15 minutes.

    The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 188.143.232.144

    All the best,
    DrumChat.com - Drummer Forum / DRUM FORUM for Drums

    Hmm.. I'll work on a different password, thanks for heads up. I wouldn't worry though, unless you're an important member why would they bother. A hacker would more than likely go after the big fish - owners, super mods, mods, vip's, etc.. I'm more worried about you guys!

    No, I believe they'd go after anybody so they can just make some spam posts. If they get just one spam post up, links with tennis shoes or something, and it hangs for a day or so, and they get click throughs, it's a success because they make their money off of fraudulent affiliate clickthroughs.

    Why wouldn't they go after the top cats? That would give them control of the site altogether. I've known a good number of hackers(unfortunately), they tend to be interested in profitable challenges. I see your point though about the spam, that seems an effective method and you could get the member to take blame for everything. Yikes.

    Most aren't out to do any harm. Just mess with people.

    During my IT career I've seen so many spam emails with links that don't even work. What's the point in that?

    Those links could be installing root kits. Just a thought.

    I didn't mean to say that they wouldn't try that as well. I just meant most of what I've seen is just trying to post links to commercial spam pages.

    All the years I have been working in IT, rootkit's are probably the thing I hate the most.

    Sorry about that. Guess I should have broke it down a bit further. I liked your definition much better though. I think I'm gonna start calling my kit that when I take down one of my rack toms.

    I've had a credit card account and 1 of my checking accounts hacked into.

    I have no sympathy for people who get into your personal business, whether to try and take something from you or just screw with you.

    I had 1 about 6 months ago that actually scared me. At the top it had the FBI logo and looked, at first glance, totally legit. It said I violated federal law by looking at kiddie porn. Then, after reading down the page, it said to put money in a envelope that I can get at several well known stores and send it wherever. On top of that, you couldn't get it off your PC. I wound up pulling the plug out and waiting a while, which cleared it, but it did happen a couple of times.

    I wanted to find that person and beat him so bad his mother wouldn't recognize him.
