      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

      PLEASE READ - Reversing upgrade   02/23/2017

      We have found that this new upgrade is somewhat of a disaster.  We are finding lots of glitches in being able to post and administer the forum.  Additionally, there are new costs associated with the upgrade that we simply cannot afford.  As a result, we have decided to reverse course and go back to the previous version of our software.  Since this will involve restoring it from a backup, we will lose posts that have been added since January 30 or possibly even some before that.    If you started a topic during that time, we urge you to make backups of your posts and you will need to start the topics over again after the change.  You can simply paste the copies of your posts that you created at that point.    If you joined the forum this month, you will need to re-register since your membership will be lost along with the posts.  Since you have a concealed password, we cannot simply restore your membership for you.   We are going to backup as much as we can so that it will reduce inconvenience for our members.  Unfortunately we cannot back everything up since much will be incompatible with the old version of our software.  We apologize for the confusion and regret the need to do this even though it is not viable to continue with this version of the software.   We plan to begin the process tomorrow evening and, if it goes smoothly, we shouldn't be offline for very long.  However, since we have not done this before, we are not sure how smoothly it will go.  We ask your patience as we proceed.   EDIT: I have asked our hosting service to do the restore at 9 PM Central time and it looks like it will go forward at that time.  Please prepare whatever you need to prepare so that we can restore your topics when the forum is stable again.

"...On June 24th, a visitor to the SANS Internet Storm Center reported that his company was "...in the middle of a very disturbing ... issue regarding the adware/spyware/IE exploit genre..." He requested help analyzing an "encrypted or compressed" file that had been downloaded to a machine at their site. Tom Liston, one of our volunteer handlers, spent the weekend analyzing this issue. His findings are summarized here...A complete write-up of Tom's findings is available online at

The site, refestltd.com (DO NOT GO THERE IF YOU'RE RUNNING IE), has an ad for SpyHunter along with an affiliate link on the front page.

 

This bumps SpyHunter up into the ranks of CWS in my view. It remains to be seen whether SpyHunter will take action against this affiliate, but personally, I hope the people behind this are dragged out into the street and beaten with SCSI cables.

 

And yes, I know the image quality is bad. I had to copy/paste into _Paint_ because I'm on my work laptop and I don't have anything better on it.

 

<edit>

 

I opened up the source, and what do you know, look what was in it! (DON'T CLICK THE LINKS!)

The little rats are trying to exploit the .chm vulnerability in IE! This is plain out-and-out criminal!

 

I'm doing a tracert as we speak. Methinks this is going to end up in Russia.

According to two different tracert logs, this site's hosted in San Diego by AplusNet. I would suggest that someone mirror the site's contents before the authorities yank it - I'm going to get what I can and investigate these rats.

 

Here's the tracert log, as performed from a server in the Netherlands:

12  pro10.abac.com (66.226.64.11) [AS10316]  145 ms  144 ms  145 ms

 

The host's IP address is genuine; it appears to be 66.226.64.11.

 

The WHOIS information is obviously falsified.

That's what I've got for now. Further bulletins as events warrant.
