  • Airshark.com Hacked!

    Including PowerScan, a porn-scanning bot. These apps apparently just walked through the firewall and installed themselves right through the Apache server. It's the only port open, or at least I think it is - I'll have to do quite a bit more checking.

    I just got a new router/firewall - if this happened since then, these guys are super-alert (except for the fact that there's not much to steal on my web site). Man, these hacks are incredible.

    Anyway, I don't trust the server any more, and I'm going to have to bring it down and reformat its disk before I bring it back. If I'm hosting images for you, they'll be off for a few days.

        Shark,

        What router/firewall were you using when the attack occurred?

                    I have all eight in use. The two most common are "Point Shot" and "Teal Edge". I do also play "Gyno-Beam", "Frigid Biyatch", "Enemy Of Life", the other three so infrequently I can't even remember their names.

                        Assuming it happened very recently (this server is in the closet, the only way I knew it had been hacked was that it beeped on a failed software install), the router is a LinkSys RV0041, their top-of-the line. It replaced a SonicWall SOHO-10, which sucked, but at least had no hacks (that I'm aware of).

                          Windows 2000. The new server will be running Windows Server 2003.

                            Doesn't match up against the hardware firewalls.
