HACKING and/or VIRUSES

Postby blackhead » Fri May 09, 2003 10:31 pm


WARNING!

There are some virulent or hacking people in this forum.
I'm running my own (myself programed) web server on my PC. It's because I have some pictures to show. (avatar & board images)

I did received few strange HTTP queries. One asks for "default.ida" file. It is probably CodeRed worm signature (the comp asking this file).
Read:

I think there is user in this forum which have CodeRed in his computer. He browse forum and when he see my avatar picture (he connects to my WEB server) worm in his machine tryies to kill my (non-existing) IIS.

Any suggestions?

I would contact the person in question and let them know their machine is infected. This is not from what I understand an attack usually generated by a person but by an infected server.

From the link you posted you do not seem to be in any danger from the attack.

If you are positive this is a direct attack by a person report it to their isp.
