We Had A Problem Here at Insomniacs Lounge

    We had A Problem Here
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    On October 23, 2004 - A criminal scored another target by deleting this entire forum. Nothing left what so ever. I can think of one reason only, why someone would do that to a posting forum and that is, a post must have been made against him that he didn't want anyone reading, so instead of just deleting the post, he decides to delete the forum.

    The HACKER went in and used Lanidar2000, who is an Administrator to do his dirty work. Then before leaving Insom, he changed my password so that I couldn't log in!


    It isn't costing Insomniacs Lounge one thing but a little time to put back the banners, links and forums and let the posting start again. I'm just relieved that what happened here isn't anything like what happened to this place:::

    In February 2003, Russian organized crime scored another target by taking control of Grafix Softech, the largest Internet gaming enterprise that operates 120 gambling websites. The shutdown was devastating. According to Juan Bonilla, executive vice president of Grafix Softech, located in San Juan, Costa Rica, �The payoff to restore service was insignificant compared to loss of data containing names of customers and other operational records destroyed once the DOS attacks were unleashed.� In a miraculous feat, Bill Margeson, president of CBL Data Recovery Technologies, and staff technicians recovered the valuable data. They discovered the Russian criminals had bypassed firewalls and other security systems and inserted a virus into the five servers that Grafix used for online operations. �It was akin to hacking into the Pentagon,� Margeson told investigators.

    Now isn't that a shame, that something like that happened to the owner of Grafix Softech, located in San Jose Costa Rica, just horrible! And I'm sure he's such a great guy that he would never consider doing anything harmful against or to another person.

    By the way, I checked the log files, and here is the IP of the person responsible for deleting Insomniacs Lounge 65.182.30.15. And what a coincidence, it traces back to Costa Rica.

    Information on trace:

    Blimey, Lanidar, how incredibly f*****d up. I'm sorry to hear that, and that you've evidently lost the entire contents of the forum. What could the motivation of the malicious bastard have been? If it was a rogue casino operator they must be used to bad press so to single you out seems bizarre. How pathetic.

    Couldn't you have backed up the forum contents somehow, so as not to lose everything in the event of a disaster like this?

    Not a hacker or anything, just a CSR who happened to locate your account and knew you had a website.

    The normal procedure is that only an encrypted version of the password is stored, so that nobody can find out your password without devoting some serious computing effort to it. A customer service rep can set your password if you forget it, but he cannot tell you what your password was. I would be shocked if RTG used such an insecure method as storing the passwords in plaintext.

    That's a real bummer for you and Jinnia, Lanidar and I sympathise with you. Frustrating not knowing what information they had as their primary target, but presumably you have briefed all your Insomniac members and perhaps one of them will come up with something that will give you a lead. It certainly is a mean world we're in!

    May we use this in InfoPowa as a reminder to other sites that tight security and protective screening are critically important?

    Laddinar & Jinnia,
    So bloody sorry so hear about this. Who would do it? Anyone really with a sick sense of self-satisfaction. A ego tripper, a child.
    I am glad to hear that you guys have not lost financially, but then, I do believe time is money!! (Worth in gold !)
    I wish you best of fortune in catching this person, and may he/she/it burn in an infernal hell of capturing data in purgatory.
    That, or the flees of a thousand camels invest the pubic area and their hands turn into hooks.
    Either way, I hope it is unpleasant!
    --- Please let me know if there is anything I can try and assist with. Might be a ditz, but I am a ditz with loads of knowledge! ----

    Thank you jetset and Petunia.

    Forum is all back, except for the posts. We'll just make better ones this time around :thumbsup:

    There's an hour and 13 minute time frame from Insom being deleted to lanidar receiving an email from a CERTAIN person in Costa Rica, with the email being sent before the deletion started.

    The IP in the log file traces back to Costa Rica.

    Nothing 100% positive, but we know, too many coincidences.

    Here's the email.

    Here is the email that was sent to me. Has NO references to the event.
    Now, this was sent to the email address I have at Insom. NOT the email address I use for personal use and for registering at casinos.

    Hello John,

    Please contact me at 1-888-824-6874 or give me a contact number where I can reach you.

    Regards,

    General Manager
    Virtual Casino

    THAT'S IT!!! :confused:

    Just checked You must register/login in order to see the link., all information has changed. BUT, I did find something strange when performing an indepth tracert on the new IP that shows. I'm checking and rechecking to make sure before saying anything. I just hope it turns out that I am wrong in my initial find :mad: .

    Lanidar, did you call this person at Virtual back to see what he wanted you to call him for? If so, what did he have to say?
