Default Who Was The Stupid To Send Me A "trojan Virus" From These Forum!!!!!

Sorry for beeing out of subject...But i am OUTRAGED!!!!

These is serious and i thing i am going to report it to find who was the "ATTACKER"
Maybe is a member of the Forum...




While i was in these Forum someone tried to send me a TROJAN BACKDOOR Virus

I have Norton security 2004 and i have a Visual Track the bastard

And i have some tracked some information about him...


The attacker comes from DALLAS,USA(somewhere North) and i have some other informaton also...plus his IP address that he used to attack me

These Forum is not safe as it seems as most maybe

BE CAREFULL PPL...

humm... I've never had any problems.

But I'm behind a router firewall and zonealarm.

Anyway afaik you cannot view a persons email address on the board unless they actually put it in their signature. Besides people are always getting trojans in their inbox all the time, just don't open them

Edit: Yup I was right, your email address cannot be viewed on the boards.

Another edit: Ah you mean something triggered a security alert, that happens all the time and most of the time it is nothing. It certainly has nothing to do with these forums.

E???
these is not funny man


I was browsing through the Forum when a ALARM trigered (I have norton Internet security 2004)

That someone tried to implement a TROJAN BACKDOOR file in my system(And not through email i was just browsing the Forum as i said and not opening Emails)

My Norton autoblocked him and i traced (with Visual Tracker) his IP Address...

The person that tried to do these <attack> that was from DALLAS,USA and i still have information about him

Fortunately he didn't tried again until now


THESE ATTACK WAS THROUGH INTERNET AND NOT THROUGH EMAIL

Sotos, no offense, but you don't have any idea what the hell you're talking about.

It's a coincidence that your firewall popped up at the same time you were browsing the forums. You probably got some Trojan through warez or something like that. Happens all the time--your firewall just caught the alert.

Now, the ONLY information people can see about you (unless it's an admin, which is me, JuiceZ, Stealth, Vamp, and Mike) is what you provide. So... no. Your so-called attack has nothing to do with the forums.

I agree with that, I don't see how the forum software could do what you're thinking it's doing unless one of the admins here set it up to do that...and I just can't see any admins here doing that.

Ummm dude, just because your software informs you that you have been attacked, doesn't mean that you are.

For one, you can't even get a person's ip address from this forum, unless the nVNews server itself was compromised.

What was the name of the Trojan? Or the name of the vulnerability it was attempting to exploit?

For all we know, you have the uber L33T norton security settings so restrictive that it informs you that you are being attacked everytime an ad banner puts a cookie on your machine.

Except not, because then it'd just be exploiting IE security holes. And it's not. So no. Don't even suggest that.

Now, Tim, you mean to say that because I wore red socks today and it later rained...that my red socks do not cause it to rain?

No, no...everyone knows that wearing red socks causes it to rain.

This is different.
