  1. Thanks for the help guys...I am going to try Mambo as a CMS. If Porsche uses it, then it cannot be too bad. There was no real damage done..I am jus P.Oed that someone would deface my site for the fun of it :cuss: I will have to pay more attention to security next time.
  2. Hello: A website that I administer for a friend of mine was hacked by a Turkish hacker script kiddy named MathLess :ahole: . The site is back up with out too much trouble; he just played around in the CMS--PHPNuke. He was not smart enough to hack the server itelf. After looking through my logs, I see that they did a yahoo search for phpnuke sites from canada, and used a ready exploit to hack the site. I found this line in the logs: - - [22/Jul/2006:17:59:24 -0400] "GET /index.php HTTP/1.1" 200 2645 www.mikemouse.ca "http://www.ayyildiz.org/board/showthread.php?p=90452#post90452" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; Mailinfo [337103,337117]; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)" "-" where it appears he was posting the url to a hacker forum. Googling for the phrases in his attack: Ayt Tim, MathLess, AYYILDIZ-TiM, AYT TiM TuRKeY etc gives numerous hits of sites that have been hacked, all PHPnuke sites...this fellow only has one arrow in his quiver So far I have: 1.) Repoted the hacker to his ISP 2.) Reported him to imageshack, who hosted his image...now removed, thanks imageshack! 3.) Reported the hacker forum, www.ayyildiz.org, to Godaddy, its registrar To prevent further attacks, I have: 1.) Removed the admin.php file from my server, (I FTP it when needed) 2.) Trashed my Gallery2 install, and replaced with static pages. (Not related to the attack, but I am wary of its liability...one of the folders had to be 777, and that worried me. Is there anything else that I can do ? Either in working on the hacker or in preventing further attacks? Any help would be appreciated!
  3. I like to use Avast It is free, easy to use and works well. Cool interface too. I have installed it for my friends and neighbours as well!
  4. Enter your BIOS at startup, and select or enable something along the lines of "Show ram test", or "Verbose test" etc. It depends on your particular BIOS. I did that to get the Compaq screen off my monitor.
  5. You have to know where to look: SoftwareOutlet They have 98SE and 95. No plain 98 though.
  6. Hey Twirlz, Is that a complete movie that you're using as an avatar? It's great!
  7. If you are looking for what I think you are looking for, try these two programs: Sysinternals Filemon Sysinternals Regmon http://www.sysinternals.com They will give you more information about what a program is doing than you can use. Very good stuff :pirate: One reads all changes to the registry made while a program runs, the other logs all changes made to files. have fun
  8. Thanks. HomeStar Runner is a great 'toon. :voteyes:
  9. Hi!! I am new to hacking, but I am trying to learn as much as I can. I am reading tutorials that I got got from the "Grayhathackers" group at Yahoo Groups and I am learning Python. I hope to learn lots of things in this forum! Butterflychoke
