Site Hacked
Jan 16th, 2014 at 6:41pm
 
The site has been hacked. [ today = january 16, 2014 ]

I had to restore [ first time ever ] the back-up from Jan 14.

Somebody somehow got my FTP log-in. The main site password.

They modified various javascript files in order to write to a file on a server down near the border between Mexico and San Diego (Chula Vista).

I think the server is in the US, but not sure.

This morning I noticed the browser said > "Waiting for site > vacance-petit-prix.com"

I say > WTF .. we should not be going there.

Hours later > more info.

Site was accessed via FTP from the IP listed, which traces to somewhere near NYC;

Code:
Wed Jan 15 05:01:56 2014 0 86.109.167.242 1605 /home/radif2/public_html/guides/matching_columns.js a _ o r radif2 ftp 1 * c

And then this morning again from a different IP, as shown here:

Code:
Thu Jan 16 04:16:11 2014 0 95.80.214.220 299 /home/radif2/joecool/public/javascripts/application.js a _ i r radif2 ftp 1 * c 



this IP also traces down to near the border of San Diego with Mexico.

At first, after the back-up was restored .. it looked not good .. but then I closed all rad pages and cleared the browser cache and > vola!

No more going to that vacance-petit-prix.com site, which is probably a hacked server itself.

The server here contains French, but sometimes it kicks you over to a Spanish-language page at Wordpress (hosted by).

If they had a better server, I might not have even noticed. But the page kept waiting .. which made me investigate further.

The server they were sending data to could obviously not handle the load. =)

So close all rad pages and clear browser cache and let me know if you notice any quirkiness.

Any delays or sluggishness.

Especially any > "waiting for this weird, strange site"

So it looks like these fvckers spent ALL DAY "working on" the site.

Looks like they  started around 6AM East coast time.

And quit about 3PM East coast time.

WTF?

Yesterday, the forum was "impossible". It took "forever" to load and didn't respond. I had to close the browser to get out of it. This morning, everything is back to normal.

Interesting.  I use Pale Moon (a Firefox clone) with NoScript, so my surfing is with scripting turned off.  I had no trouble visiting the forum yesterday, even before the forum restoration.

Not sure if this provides any useful information, but I repeatedly got virus alerts yesterday accessing the site.  I believe that AVG virus protection reported them as YP/redirect virus.  Even while deleting the quarantined files, they would come back each time I loaded the page or a different page.

yes, that is certainly 'redirect' behavior.

yes, long as I disabled javascript or accesed the site thru a proxy (which disables javascript by default) I had NO PROBLEM.

I have been running servers for long enough that you can *feel* when things arent right.

I had problems similar to what Christer describes > had to shut down the whole freaking browser.

i should look into matching column lengths using CSS. Actually, I *did* .. back then. And the CSS method was significantly more complicated (tho impossible by no means) .. which is why I used javascript (simple).

I think they were into my laptop, too. For reasons I will not specify. But those reasons are now gone. Things were running better last night than they have in a long time. Like I had a new laptop.

I realize that, if you criticize the government, they will not be be pleased. So you must accept the consequences that comes with the territory. (Fvck them.)

(Obama is giving a speech today, isnt he?)

I have told people that .. if a true wizard-hacker wants to hack you .. you would have a wire up your butt right now .. and NOT EVEN KNOW IT.

Here is Dan's Pale Moon browser, which I had not even heard about:

http://www.palemoon.org/

.. but I can tell that I am interested already.

I have Java (jre-7u51) installed but disabled. Maybe disabling is not enough?

For anyone interested in checking it out, I suggest downloading the portable version of Pale Moon.  You can then play around with it without making any permanent changes to your system.

(FWIW, I use a lot of portable apps, including portable versions of Chrome, Firefox, Thunderbird, Filezilla, and more.  It's handy to be able to carry them around on a flash drive and/or setup duplicate copies configured for different environments.)

Christer,

Java is not Javascript.

Two totally different animals.

Only similar in name.

You install Java on your machine, but Javascript comes with browser.
