Hackers rant…

June 24th | | Uncategorized | Tags: None

Wow, so many people are getting hacked these days
In the past week, i’ve had to recover 2 accounts that got hacked…

And i talked to Jess (yes, her account was one of those that got hacked)
And she told me she has NEVER used her email/facebook password on any other websites…

And i hate having to recover accounts… They shouldn’t be hack-able in the first place…

Anyways, i got her accounts back…
I started at 10:45:38
I finished hotmail at 10:56:52 (Under 12mins)
I finished facebook at 11:07:13 (Under 23mins)

Then to help prevent these problems in future…
I started securing at 11:07:13
Faebook was finished at: 11:08:30
Hotmail was finished at: 11:13:34

But to be safe, i’ll run a full scan on affected systems to see if there are any other causes…
But only appears to be systems where i didn’t install teamviewer that got hacked…
Any systems i installed teamviewer and kept their systems updated remained safe…

Meh, if i can’t help with prevention, i can only help with recovery…

I prefer to use my own servers, easiest way to get rid of most of the hackers.
Just convert their IP from IP to Country and then if they’re not from AU/Aus/Australia, block them!

Here’s a sample (and i’ll provide the code :D):

The IP: 54.226.113.250 appears to be connecting from United States
Have a free flag:

<?php
require_once "<b>Location to GeoIP script</b>"; //Location to GeoIP script
$geoip = Net_GeoIP::getInstance("<b>Location to GeoIP database</b>"); //Location to GeoIP database
$CountryCode = $geoip->lookupCountryCode(<b>IP address</b>); //Visitor's IP address
$CountryName = $geoip->lookupCountryName(<b>IP address to check</b>); //Visitor's IP address
echo 'The IP: <b>'.$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'].'</b> appears to be connecting from <b>'.$CountryName.'</b><br />';
echo 'Have a free flag: <img src="<b>Location to image file</b>'.strtolower($CountryCode).'.<b>gif/jpg/png</b>" />'; //Get your own image...
?>
