Angry Re: Hacked!!!

There getting better at hacking in to anything, but that's all about to change when ( Hacker Stealth Bomber ) comes out, you just sit back & let this program destroy there PC when they hack in from any sorce, yes total melt down for the hacker's PC no matter where they are it find's them! - I can't wait for it! & looks like it will sell big time, I will let you know when it's on the market bro's, hopefuly it will be soon!


Cheers- Jake.

Re: Hacked!!!

Re: Hacked!!!

sorry to hear but you need to be VERY CAREFUL with phpBB board. check the main site daily and apply patches ASAP as they're released to prevent.

some of these phpBB boards get scanned regularly by 'bots (ie. automated processes) looking for exploits... glen

I dont think thats going to happen, I got into learning hacking for a little while and it would be pretty much impossible to have a program that could automatically hack a hacker

There have been several tools that did just that, some very old.

However, such a retaliation action is pretty useless these days. These bots often run from compromised machines. If you're able to trace it back to the real originator (which can be a chain of over dozens of machines), then perhaps you'd be able to do something. Reporting is the best option, if you start cracking in retaliation, you violate the law just as much as he did, and if you lack the proper knowledge to cover your a$$, you could end up in deep doo doo.

The good news is that people who run those bots are clueless scriptkiddies who wouldn't recognise a buffer overflow if it hit 'm in the head. Internet providers are growing more keen on catching those buggers and if they do damage, they can face jail time.

John, sign up to the phpBB mailing list on their site, or check your control panel as it will show whenever a new release has been made. You can even semi automate the installation of a new version if you like (if you don't have too many modifications, that should work like a charm). phpBB had some security issues last year (some sql injection issues, error checking troubles and buffer overflow crap - actually those were in php itself), one of which you fell victim, but were patched long ago (december last year).
