This hack suspended the hosting account and the web site as a malware infected account. The hack set up a malware attack for anyone who visited the site, specifically targeting Windows. I am still trying to figure out how they got in, This is a Pakistani-based attack, or so their message says. I’ll try to document as much as I can to help others in the same situation.

hn.kd.ny.adsl: Research, Ban

This guy hn.kd.ny.adsl seems innocent enough, until I tried to look him up, only to find no positive IP address. Others have posted that they, too, cannot find his IP address in order to ban him. Hmmm, let me track him down.

This hacker is prolific in that he rarely repeats the third octet, making it harder to ban by a narrower range. You’ll need to go up to the second octet to cover his IP ranges. He uses predominantly China Unicom Henan. Only once did he go to China Unicon Fujian, which might just be an outlier data point.

zomro.com Content Scraper: Research, Ban

midex.zomro.com scrapes my site for awstat tags. I do not know why, and they do it multiple times. It is very annoying.

This time I found four offending files and two offending SQL table entries. Here’s what I found and how I found them.
