Thread: Denial Of Service Attack

  1. #1
    This is a badly-translated news story which I found on another filesharing forum:

    Several anti-virus enterprises, which reported on the "q-variant" of the Netsky parasite, found out that this slams shut starting from 8 April with an Denial OF service attack over the long easter weekend. 07.04.2004 -

    Who did not secure itself yet against the worm (we reported end March) and gladly at night the PC uses, that becomes probably part of a large-scale attack: The program begins today around midnight to attack from all infected computers several web pages.

    The worm, which takes the respected place in the statistics of the virus spreading, is to bring in particular Filesharing Websites such as KaZaA to the crash. In order 00:01 on 8 April up to 11 April 2004 try to knock the worm, so frequently on the doors of the P2P-Webserver, until these break in.

    The author of the worm had obviously a moral approach - or money from the software and music industry. Anyhow discussion participants in InterNet Security forums assume that, because the parasit attacks calculated the sides, which contain cracked software or stolen music. In addition www.cracks.st, www.[illegal link], www.emule project.net, www.kazaa.com and www.edonkey2000.com belong.

    Who does not want to participate in the attack, thus immediately its anti-virus software should update - or simply the computer over Easter leave switched off, before it eliminates thereafter the Digitalfiesling. (mk) further information: Sophos Kaspersky Symantec TrendMicro


    Kazaa and eDonkey brace for attack from Netsky

    #Viruses Submitted By Kirt

    The Netsky worm is due to launch a DDoS attack on file-sharing sites such as Kazaa and eDonkey on Wednesday morning

    File-sharing Web sites Kazaa and eDonkey are bracing for a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack starting on Wednesday that will be launched by a clutch of new variants of the Netsky worm.

    Netsky.Q, which first appeared on 29 March, is designed to attack various Web sites that distribute either file-sharing clients or hacking and cracking tools. Kazaa and eDonkey are its best-known targets and the attack is scheduled to last for six days. However, they will get only a short break because Netsky.T, which was discovered on Tuesday, will launch a new DDoS attack from 14 April. This attack is scheduled to last for 10 days.

    Experts are predicting that the worm is just going to affect the websites, not the filesharing networks.

    It wont affect the networks, just the websites. edonkey2000.com is down but other sites like overnet.com are still up. Its also taking out cracking and password sites

    The virus has been spreading through the networks apprently in zip files etc. Normal methods
    Shut that cuntís mouth or Iíll come over there and fuckstart her head.

    How ironic. These people say they hate filesharing networks so much, yet they are still willing to use them in order to spread harmful files !

    And I wouldn't trust RIAA at all - unless they come out and denounce the virus, they should be held responsible !

    What the hell would the RIAA want with cracking sites?

    Maybe some software companies were interested also, or it could be a lame script kiddie.
