Any explanation?

Jack

While Andy and myself were away on our holidays the Forum came under attack from a computer based in Australia. They employed software that used up 98% of our total bandwidth for the month. One again we have had to spend more money to get the Forum back online.

We are currently searching for the culprit. What we do know is that the person responsible was using the IP 59.106.128.138

No, his IP is 202.139.22.154

Is there anything about this particular timing that would have caused this attack? Or just a coincidence that you and Andy were on vacation?

Lots of truth on this site so it will be under attack. By those opposed to truth.

Sure hope they get this person and said criminal is prosecuted to the fullest.

Some find free speech scary and offensive. We must endeavor to see to it that

a site like this is never silenced.

The Project Honey Pot system has detected behavior from the IP address consistent with that of a spam harvester. Below we've reported some other data associated with this IP. This interrelated data helps map spammers' networks and aids in law enforcement efforts.

A spam harvester can read through the pages in your site and extract email

addresses which are then added to bulk marketing databases. The result: more spam

Dawn, thank you, the sentiment appreciated. But the finding doesn't in any way belong to me. Whenever I come across a suspicious IP I enter it as a search and generally if it is a problematic IP then a number of sites/organisation dedicated to making/keeping the internet 'good' are already on the case. So just cut and paste IP's into search engine and follow the leads.

An aside:: apart from keeping trojans etc out of ones computer with active detect virus and spyware utilities, a visit to http://www.grc.com/default.htm and running 'shieldsup' is a good idea. The site also discusses in depth many problems and fixes.

Project Honey Pot? Interesting name. When I was in the

navy in WWII that referred to a part of a woman's anatomy.

But that was back in the days that "f-u-c-k" was not in

the dictionary and on every movie screen as now.

Back in the 1970s we called the truck that drained the outhouse

at summer camp the HONEY POT.

Hope nobody finds this historical etymology offensive.

Jack

Well Jack, I DO find your post offensive. This is not the Navy, a bar, or your livingroom. It is an educational forum. Young persons interested in the Kennedy assassination read the post here. Women read and post here. Your crude addition was uncalled for and you owe the forum, and especially the women here, an apology.

Unfortunately, one cannot describe the deplorable depths to which

everyday language has sunk without quoting the bad words. I

seldom go to movies anymore because the writers cover their lack

of ability by inserting bad words about having sex with one's mother.

And this wonderful internet...did you know that the number one

business conducted on the www is PORNOGRAPHY? Just google most any

four or five letter word about sex to see deviant behaviors you would

not believe. Hey, it is not me, it is out there...and customers are abundant.

As for my posting, I was expressing surprise that a well known sexual

term would be used as the name of a project. If you were unfamiliar

with the term, you have learned something about the real world.

Those who use such language should apologize. I do not use it; I am

just reporting it.

Jack
