Deep Thoughts by theVigilante: Kill Scammers

thevigilantei tell them all that i know what they are doing and that the more they contact me the easier it will be to track them down and kill them. maybe they lose sleep maybe not ,but to incite any fear is nice, after the pain and anguish they reek on unwitting people, i tell them i’ll make their children pay for their crimes. the net allows any one with proper binary understanding to track anyone down. all i need is an email address and i can find your ip address then you physical address then your name and then your life. May all the scammer die!

Symantec acquired IMlogic the anti-spim

  

Symantec has acquired IMlogic to get into IM and email security:

LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwire – June 13, 2007) – Symantec Vision 2007 — Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ: SYMC) today announced the newest version of Symantec Information Foundation, an integrated Information Risk Management (IRM) product suite that builds on the company’s Security 2.0 strategy. Symantec Information Foundation delivers advanced controls to safeguard companies against data loss with unified protection for e-mail, Web and instant messaging (IM). The new solution, expected to be available this summer, enables information entering or exiting the organization to be archived, audited and discovered through a validated process that ensures proper chains of custody.

With IMlogic’s technology they will also be able to battle “SPIM” Spam on Instant Messanger which can get pretty bad. 

*** SCAM CONFIDENTIAL/E-BANKING TRANSACTION SCAM**

The latest scam.. ATTN:
CONFIDENTIAL/E-BANKING TRANSACTION.
I am Mr David Peterson , The Manager OF Bills and Exchange at the Foreign Remittance Department of Citi Bank Plc. I am writing this letter to ask for your support and cooperation to carry out this business opportunity in my departments. We discovered an abandoned sum of US$38.5 Million (Thirthy Eight Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars only) in an Account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family of a wife and two children in November 2002 in Afghanistan.  Since we heard of his eath, we have been expecting his next-of-kin to come over and put claimsfor his money as the heir, because we cannot release the fund from his Account unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our Banking guidelines.
Unfortunately, neither their family member nor distant relative has
ever appeared to claim the said fund. Upon this discovery, I and other
officials in my department have agreed to make business with you and release the Total amount into your Account as the beneficiary of the fund,since no one came for it or discovered he maintained Account with our Bank, otherwise the fund will be returned to the Banks treasury as unclaimed fund.
We have agreed that our ratio of sharing will be as stated thus: 30% for you as a foreign partner, 60% for us the officials in my department and 10% for the settlement of all local and foreign expenses incurred by us and you during the cours of This business. Upon the successful completion of this transfer, I and one of my colleagues will come to your Country and mind our share. It is from our 60% we intend to invest in (estate) as a way of recycling the fund.
To commence this transaction, we require you to immediately indicate
your interest by a return E-mail and enclose your private contact telephone number, fax number including you mobile number, full name and address and your designated Bank coordinates to enable us file letter of claim to the appropriate departments for necessary approvals before the transfer can made.
Note also, this transaction must be kept STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL because of its nature. I look forward to receiving your prompt response.

Yours Faithfully,

DAVID PETERSON.

Black Hat Spammers (NIST Hacked)

NIST.gov, heidelberg university and others have been hacked by black hat spammers.

Lately I’ve been getting some spam that I consider a special treat.  These are websites that have been exploited and used to promote spammy pharmacy products such as viagra and cialis. 

I am not happy that victims are being used, I’m intriqued on how the spammers managed to get away with it.

This one comes from NIST.gov: 

SPAM Hack of NIST.gov

tramadol
http://www.nist.gov/HyperNews/atp/get/collaboration/288.html
tramadol

I’ve been working with the U.S. Govt for a long time so I am familiar with the NIST.  It is the National Institue of Standards and Technology: “Founded in 1901, NIST is a non-regulatory federal agency within the U.S. Commerce Department’s Technology Administration.” 

When I thought that they might have been hacked, I immediately sent and email to the webmaster.  But unfortunately they rejected my email.
Here is another hack attempt (this one unsuccessful):

UTA.edu

Here is one is what looks like a division of Heidelberg University:

email I sent to Heidelberg Universtiy (translated with babelfish):

Hallo,
Ihr Aufstellungsort kann ausgenutzt worden sein:
http://www.physi.uni-heidelberg.de/HyperNewsFachschaft/get/discussion/862.html
Die Person, die dies getan hat, benutzt Ihren Aufstellungsort zu Spam andere Internet-Aufstellungsorte. Traurig über meinen Deutschen. Ich verwende babelfish.altavista.com, um zu übersetzen. Auf Wiedersehen

Here is another attempt on Kryten.murdoch.edu.au

cialis

As with any exploit, the spammers used a flaw in the webpage to post the data on victims webpages.  The sad thing is that it can happen to anyone.  Security Awareness is really the only defense one can have.
 

I have been getting a lot.  I’ll update this when I get some good one.

who is ludochekmy? date spammer

Apparently, she is a lonely single woman who speaks english as a second language.

I googled “ludochek” and found this:

ludochekmy googled 

YOU SEARCH WOMAN? I’m single woman and i search man my mail: ludochekmy()gmail.com
I’m blond, 32y.old. If you search woman for pen pal and more write to me and i can send
to you my new pics and tell more about myself.
I use () instead @ for my email.
I post this message from this forum because i don’t have credit card and can’t use dating site.
If you want find a friend please write to me i am very lonely girl.
I wait your message to my email: ludochekmy()gmail.com but you must use @ Ludmila.
I wonder if date spamming works.  I’ll do some research on this.

paypal email scams

I get these paypal email scams ALL the time. It is really just one of so many phishing scams that put up mock versions of legitimate financial services and institutions such as Wells Fargo, Western Union, Bank of America and others in order to trick some of their customers into giving up usernames, passwords and account information.

Notice that the URL adress bar goes to IP: 202.181.96.33

This IP goes to somewhere in Australia and not PayPal. NEVER go to these mock sites and give your information. If you think something maybe wrong with your account after receiving an email make sure you open a NEW BROWSER and type the url in your self.

Open source anti-spyware

Winpooch is a Windows watchdog, free and open source. Anti spyware and
anti trojan, it gives a full protection against local or external
attacks by scanning the activity of programs in real time. Associated
with ClamWin antivirus, Winpooch keeps safe your computer against virus.  Exactly as the title says.
