      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.

"...A reader contacted the ISC early on Friday morning to report yet another online banking scam. In this case, the victim receives a forged email from PayPal instructing them that their account appears to have unauthorized access attempts and they need to change their password for their protection. Clicking on the embedded link takes the victim to a web site hosted by a cable modem user near New York City.

If the victim is using Internet Explorer and the browser is not patched for the .chm exploit, the victim's browser is directed to download several files including executables from a web hosting site in Atlanta. The .chm patch is at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/ms04-013.mspx

The files on the Atlanta site attempt to capture login and password activity, then upload that information to a data repository at the same site. As of early morning on July 16th there appears to be over 11,000 victims with over 16,000 captured passwords and account information. The data collection starts in early May and is unfortunately still continuing. The Atlanta site has been notified. The Department of Homeland Security and US-CERT have also been notified..."

The sites we have been looking at have files dated as early as April 23rd, so it is likely that this scam has been working since then or earlier. The URL above is dated June 3rd, confirming that it has been in circulation at least six weeks...The id directory and the text.txt files contain data on the compromised computers (keystrokes and so forth). Both are quite large and indicate that thousands of accounts have been hijacked..."
