    For those of you that are interested,

    this site was attaced a long while ago in much the same way as ukl.

    Read the report here.
    http://www.grc.com/dos/grcdos.htm

    If you read it. it pretty much explains what happened to this site.
    Dazyaa's attack was no particular feat fo computer wizadry, and for those of you that are worried, the chances of any of you being victim to such an attack are very slim indeed. I remember hearing about him hacking hotmail accounts a while ago, and that's about the only threat I can think of.

    Indeed, since most people don't run http servers on their comps, such an attack can't affect most ukl members. Especially, considering the fact he would have to get our IP addresses. Unless he gets complete physical control over the http server ukl runs on, he won't be able to.

    I'm quite interested about how he managed to get into someone's hotmail account though...

    Well I assmued people would want to know what the hell happened to ukl. It makes sense to explain how he did it to make sure noone got worried that it might affect their computers.

    Well, some people have their hotmail address and their place of birth (one of their secret questions) in their profiles do they not?

    he guessed the secret question - it wasn't exactly rocket science

    From that article :

    He says that he was already in trouble with the FBI when he was eight — for hacking government servers. His computer was taken away until he was ten, then he was carefully monitored for another year until he was eleven. But now he's right back at it.

    From what I've heard, his ISP doesn't seem to care, he has had 78 ukl and hotmail accounts banned and if his IP is banned then someone else that lives around him might not be able to get on.

    Why would that affect him bein banned.

    I know many people won't agree with this, but doesn't someone out there respect him for actually pulling off a DDOS attack successfully, it was carefully planned and carried out. I have respect for him for doing that.

    Anyone can do it. I would maybe respect him if he wrote all the stuff involved, but he didn't. He admits himself he is just a "script kiddy" so really there is very little to respect; as the name implies, anyone can run a few commands

    How Lame, DoS attacking...cheap. I would have thought UK-Ls router's would filter those though, I've only got a netgear router and that filters out that 100 DoS attacks I get a day. Hmmm, suprising.

    are they DoS attacks, or just port scanners looking for an easy way in? i'd guess the latter, because the point of DoS is to take someone off the net who has annoyed you.

    it's not port scanning cos it appears in the logs "Attempted DoS attack...IP blocked"

    How hard can it be to type :
    !r
    !p4 212.100.252.21

    That's all you need to do for a DDoS attack on uk-learning (assuming that you have some IRC bots). Even a script-kiddie can manage that. It requires minimal effort and no thought.

    it isnt JUST that it depends on the botnet, a lot of it is managing, stealing, building, spreading the bots, maintaining them on networks, getting the right syn-rate as well as pinging, not getting infected yourself, knowing people, etc

    if this was real life, i'd be very rich my bots are goign amazing atm, spreading nicely......
