Enter the mother ship of trawlers.......
--> Hey dude!
--> I am still battling that nasty virus, too! I have not gotten
--> any feedbag
--> from people on the bloglog lately about it so I was hoping the tide had
--> turned! We are still offline at the bank and have had to take emergency
--> measures to keep everything afloat. That port 443 (aka w32.ssl.b (b for
--> bilano, btw)) virus is just kicking out stuff to heck and back.
--> We believe the attack was initiated by one of the college
--> student skater
--> punks who may have bounced a check and got angry about the
--> returned-check-fee ($15 and fair if you are a fool who bounces checks)
--> and called their hacker buddies up (or the spam gangs). You know how
--> those crazy skater kids get with their laptops, they can do
--> anything! If
--> you ever see them at the mall, just walk the other way and for the love
--> of pete don't ask them what their passwords are! I've had that
--> experience before and it was thoroughly unpleasant!
--> Anyway, we've had several meetings about it and this is our working
--> scenario. There doesn't appear to be any pattern in the attacks so this
--> is obviously very sophisticated! We've sent an email and a
--> snail-mail to
--> all 250,000 customers to let them know that the on-line banking will be
--> off-line (LOL) for at least another month until our four new Sun 6800
--> web servers get in to replace the two Dell Xeon boxes.
--> We are going to be M$ free here very soon! And with that comes no more
--> port 443 virus!
--> BTW: I want to get into the ORKUT because, rumor has it, there is a FAN
--> CLUB for me! Can somebody please send me an ORKUT invitation?!?!
