You don't use Hotmail by any chance do you? There's been a big increase in accounts being hijacked by spammers recently.

It's very easy to spoof an email's sender and / or return address, it's fairly common for spammers to do just this. It doesn't always mean your computer is infected but it can't hurt to check.

Why would you think hotmail, run by microsoft, is on a linux server???

because it is lol ms dont trust there own security

has apple ever had a big issue with hackers

in all my time of knowing about apple they have had 2 serious threats EVER
ms in the other hand has had over 2000 serious threats including ddos attacks major worms and trojens (remember the I LOVE YOU virus i bloody do

the thing is ms are great but for security and reasurance apple and linusx are better as there scripting is impermiable hfs and hfs+ v's dos

The spoofing happened to me - in the end I had to abandon the email address.
#15


yes well lol i sort of failed there ....BUT ... i mean the servers that are run at apple and ms not the specific machines i.e laptops and computers... the server have a lot more to protect and the computer as a unit should be just important but only to the user not the company

altho they do have these "hack tests" to employ said "hacker" to fix and get around the expliot or flaw in the future

p.s. rep added for makin me a tit :P :thumbsup:

Ok first off, it's LINUX (Unless they also use Lynx......then it's Lynux :giggle:) :thumbsup:

Secondly: http://uptime.netcraft.com/up/graph?site=www.hotmail.com IIS doesn't run on Linux, although their load management set-up (F5 Big-IP) does: http://www.f5.com/products/big-ip/, which is what's being detected: http://uptime.netcraft.com/up/accuracy.html#os. :whistling:

Finally although Linux, OSX and the BSD's are more secure than Windows nothing is impenetrable!

Yeah but that relies on the user being stupid enough to click that link.......I'd only be worried if they could do something like that without needing the user to be a moron :thumbsup:.
#18
If you get it sorted I would switch to Firefox browser with noscript installed as it only allows scripts on websites to run if you allow it, very helpful on sites with those annoying full page pop ads like releaselog.

Also make sure you have a firewall, antivirus and antispyware.

Most users are stupid enough to click random links, the fact that simply clicking a link opens up the computer to full remote exploitation though is very worrying, at least it would have been for Apple at the time.

I'd have thought it would be a minority that were susceptible to such an attack, but maybe I credit people with too much intelligence.

Personally it's the stuff that doesn't require user interaction that would worry me, like the holes in the Windows TCP/IP stack that keep cropping up. You may never even know that something is wrong until you're bank account's emptied out or your ISP cuts you off for being part of a botnet.

It's not a matter of the user being stupid. The link won't be called "www.clickthistobehijacked.com" or anything like that. It might not even be a link at all. Could be an image or a page background that's rigged up with an or a bit of Flash. And it needn't be on a dodgy site, it could be an advert on a legit site.

I use ntl webmail to read my emails,never ever had a problem before,run spybot whilst i was out this morning and its found nothing!
#23
I wouldn't worry too much about the TCP/IP stack, I can't remember off the top of my head any exploits that achieved code execution, denial of service sure.

With a little effort you can close the most commonly opened ports on a Windows machine, sure it will disable some functionality but it will also defeat most remote (internet, intranet) attacks outright.

The user knowledge isn't there sadly also Microsoft could make it easier but they don't seem to be interested.

No it'll be called "viagra.cheaprolex.cn"or "www2.signin-ebay.com/xyzrewrPkjZ" - still doesn't take a genius to spot.

JavaScript would be the danger there, opening a link without your input. Easily solved with NoScript or similar. Not a common occurrence compared to dodgy links in junk mail, but I take your point.

There are several this year alone that spring to mind, this: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/01/08/microsoft_january_patch_release/ being the most famous one.

I've you've checked for Spyware etc. then I suspect something as simple as changing your password might help in this case, probably someone's gotten hold of your webmail details. If you can get access to them check the headers on the emails, it could also be someone spoofing your email rather then using your account directly. Not sure how to view the headers in NTL webmail as I've never used it, but I'm sure someone will.

EDIT: The headers will tell you where the emails actually originated from, also check your sent items - if the emails are there then your account's been compromised.
#28
I was wondering why it hadn't been exploited but it seems it has, just not publicly (demo video available).

I hope a proof of concept never finds its way into the wild and in the meantime I'm going back to Windows 2000, nah not really.

Good link / info though MM.

If all the possible exploits made it out into the wild then you'd be have to sit in a Faraday cage to keep your computer secure.......Just imagine a life without HUKD :giggle:

I might actually have a life if that were to happen, now there's an idea!

I like this bit though:

MS
Why does Vista have more affected protocols than XP/Server 2003?

Vista, being the most recent version of Windows, has the most current protocol support. (and the most bugs)

Somebody has a Blackberry :giggle:

Looks a bit suspicious to me, seems to have come through the NTL servers. A Whois check shows them as legit NTL addresses.

The miragecommander.net address is registered to some Yanks, not sure who they are:
PMB 368, 14150 NE 20th St - F1
C/O miragecommander.net
Bellevue, WA 98007
US

Their IP is registered with:
OrgName: Limestone Networks, Inc.
OrgID: LIMES-2
Address: 400 N. St. Paul
City: Dallas
StateProv: TX
PostalCode: 75201
Country: US

I'd suggest sending the offending emails / headers on to NTL and letting them deal with it. I don't think there's much you can do.
#33
From looking at the headers it would appear that it's a poorly configured newsletter, in that people are responding to the initial email and those responses are being mailed out to the entire list - you being on said list.

I could be wrong but it fits, I think.
#34
thans for the help will email ntl about it :)
