Reporting A Website For Illegal Hacking And Other Activities?

Sep 29, 2008

How would I go about reporting a website for illegal hacking and other activities?

Their host is fully supporting them. They have even given them the ip address of the proxy I used, in which case the client of theirs have added the proxy to their htaccess deny list.

Masking Connection To A Website, Illegal?

Sep 13, 2008

I am not a web host. I do have my own server that I host my company sites on and some of my friends use it as well.

I had someone ask me if I could host about ten pages on my server for him. He said the following," Hello. What is your base hosting price... say for a dozen page static site? (making some Page Rank sites on different hosts to mask the connections to my main website)"

This question gave me an uneasy feeling, but then again I am not familiar with this tactic. I have two questions since the above was asked.

1. Is this illegal by search engine rules.
2. Can my websites be affected if it is.

Illegal Content Scanner

May 20, 2009

While reading a lot of posts and blogs about hosting, I just wanted to ask if someone has an idea on how to find files with illegal content.

I just tried a few bash scripts, but if there are a few thousand files, most of them stop working or produce server loads that stop the whole server.

Is there any software already out there or any script to scan the content on server for phrases?

Illegal Characters In Php Pages

Aug 30, 2007

I have a cpanel 11 server with php 4.4.6 installed. my site use php scripts and one day even if the file was not edited, not touched at all , i get errors like

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ']' in /home/xxx/public_html/wp-includes/post.php on line 37

I checked and could find a lot of illeagal characters in my php file. See below. for post_status , it became post_statuó and edit_date became edit_date<8d>. If you read through the code, you can see a lot of illegal characters. This is why i get parse errors. I had to replace the file from backup and the issue fixed. But this problem continues to occur for more files and i can't find a reason for this. Again I am the only one with access, I use BBedit to edit php files when needed in Mac OS X, and beleive I know what is being edited and again, those file which gets errors does not need to be edited for nothing, not even to modify wordpress.

iN ( 'draft' == $post['post_statuó'] && empty($postarr['edit_date<8d>]) && empty($postarr['post_date¯]) &&
('0000-00-00 00:00:00' == $post['post_date']) )
$clçar_date = true;
$clear_nate = false;

// Merge old and"new fields with new fields overriting old ones.
$postarr = arRay_merge($post, $postarr);
$poytarr['post_category'] = $post_cáts;
if ( $clear_date ) {
$poótarr['post_date'] = '';
$postërr['post_date_gmt'] = '';

éf ($postarr['post_type'] == 'at|achment')
return wp_insert_atachment($postarr);

How To Do Reporting With IIS 5.0

Jun 2, 2008

if there is anyway that IIS 6.0 can do reporting of the websites that are running on it. For example I would like to get the local IP address and host header values for them. I can do it manual by going to each website but that will take forever. It seems like there should be a easier way.

Sell Illegal Templates In CD And Hostgator Will Host It Legally

May 29, 2009

Last week my brother puchased a CD which promised contains thousands of unique templates through [url]

He sell it locally for Indonesia market and leave no contact info.

He showed me and I'm surprised that what did guy did is copied from all sources included majority which is available alot of through the net (example: [url]burn it into CD and sell it illegaly.

I reported the site to and got the followin reply:


Since there are no templates on the site, you will need to provide evidence of this some how.

Richard F.
Network Security Administrator
ISP Blacklist Administrator/Level 3 Systems Administrator
PGP Key: [url]

I'm not trying to bash HG, but I need your opinion: is the HG respond is already correct?

So learn from the same thing, if I set a website sell cracked properties and only delivery the product through CD or email (not downloadble one) I can host it with HG as long as no offensive files in their server? Or in this case HG just ignore it because could not understand Indonesia languange?

Performance / Reporting Tool

May 29, 2009

I have several servers and I need a tool to measure CPU/disk/memory performance.

I no nothing about hardware (and I also don't want/need to know).

The tools is to compare only - I don't care about the measure unit, I just need a way to compare the performance between my servers like which one as a faster CPU and so on...

Anyone knows such a FREEWARE (and not bloatware) tool?

If the tool has some kind of hardware report... well.. even better.

May 13, 2008

One friend I host sites for is reporting 492MB in WHM, but running DU reports 5.4GB for just one site!!! I've had the DC run Quotafix, but it's still not correct. The site is drupal and DC said they can't even list the tmp folder for that account. Any suggestions so I don't loose $45/month in extra charges? I have no clue how many months this is been going on, but it's costing me allot it seems.

Enabling PHP Error Reporting

Jan 7, 2007

I just leased a server through EV1. It's Linux (I think), Apache, and Plesk 8.0. I'm trying to get error reporting to work for my php scripts. I opened up the php.ini file (I'm about 90% sure that it's the right php.ini file) found in the /etc folder. I changed error reporting to "on" and restarted my server with Plesk.

PHP errors are still not showing up.

Mod_Evasive Enhancing Reporting

Apr 27, 2007

I got mod_evasive installed and its working fine. Its detecting the IPs, blocking the IPs and sending me the emails.

The emails I'm getting only have the sender name "Apache" and the content shows the IP address is blocking.

How can I enhance the email report to display the following:

1) get a proper Subject header in the email

2) change the From header to include the hostname - i.e.

3) have the program do a reverse lookup on the ip, and include that in the body.

Do I need to include a script using the DOSSystemCommand to do this?

Realtime DNS Blacklist Fed By Reporting Admins

Jan 26, 2007

Wondering if anyone knows of an email DNSBL that are have a real time reporting tool which directly feeds the DNSBL?

I have been using Spamcop for reporting in hopes I might be able to get some IP's listed. However so far I have not seen any IP's listed until many hours or days after they are reported (possibly going through a validation process?).

Wondering if anyone knows a more pro-active DNSBL that is fed directly by reporting and administrators?

Munin Stopped Reporting Eth0 After Reboot

Apr 30, 2008

I rebooted my server and now munin is not showing any eth0 traffic. All other graphs are fine. I can see there is a ton of apache accesses so there is definitely eth0 traffic. Munin logs report no errors. I restarted munin and munin-node. I even did 'yum remove munin munin-node' and reinstalled again but it still doesn't work for eth0.

Microsoft Junk Mail Reporting Program - Who Uses This

Jul 20, 2008

Anyone else sign up for this?

Did microsoft require your host email them and say "[you] have exclusive sending rights for this IP"?

Here is the part of the email from microsoft:

xx, unfortunately, we have not received an e-mail confirmation from
your ISP, [host], for your IP
x.x.x.x. Please ask them to re-send the e-mail confirmation to [email] with the [id] subject. Please also
ask them to include you on the "To" or "Cc" field in case that we fail
to receive their e-mail confirmation.

Is this a requirement for everybody?

I signed up for AOL's junk reporting program a few months ago and I didn't have to bother anybody about it.

If I recall correctly, all AOL cared about was whether or not my reverse DNS was set properly.

A Lot Of Hacking

May 7, 2009

today i have a lot of hacking on my server .

i searched for shell scripts on the server , and i found alot of it :

[root@host svt]# ls -l
total 48
-rw-r--r-- 1 koky koky 6700 May 7 08:14 s.php
lrwxrwxrwx 1 koky koky 48 May 7 08:07 s1 -> /home/user1/public_html/vb/includes/config.php
lrwxrwxrwx 1 koky koky 47 May 7 08:12 s2 -> /home/user2/public_html/vb/includes/config.php
lrwxrwxrwx 1 koky koky 48 May 7 08:19 s3 -> /home/user3/public_html/vb/includes/config.php
lrwxrwxrwx 1 koky koky 47 May 7 08:37 s5 -> /home/user4/public_html/vb/includes/config.php
lrwxrwxrwx 1 koky koky 49 May 7 08:49 s6 -> /home/user5/public_html/vb/includes/config.php
-rw-r--r-- 1 koky koky 13199 May 7 07:59 ss.php
-rwxr-xr-x 1 koky koky 23005 May 7 07:58 svt.svt

as u can see he uploaded the files on this account "koky" and redirected this files to user1,user2,user3,user4 and user5 accounts .

and he could read the config.php and then hacked the site easly !!

i read befor that the reason of this is Perl on the server , and the way to solve it to edit httpd.conf by adding this in it :

<Directory "/home">
Options -ExecCGI -FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride AuthConfig Indexes Limit FileInfo Options=IncludesNOEXEC,Indexes,MultiViews,SymLinksIfOwnerMatch

and then restart the http :
service httpd restart

i did all of that , and when i restarted http it said :
[root@host www]# service httpd restart
Syntax error on line 51 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
Invalid command 'Options=IncludesNOEXEC,Indexes,MultiViews,SymLinksIfOwnerMatch', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

and all the sites got down !

i deleted :
<Directory "/home">
Options -ExecCGI -FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride AuthConfig Indexes Limit FileInfo Options=IncludesNOEXEC,Indexes,MultiViews,SymLinksIfOwnerMatch

from httpd.conf and then sites worked correctly .

so you all know my problem now ! and i think alot of you have the same problem , so i wish we all try to find any solution for this and knows the best way to protect pel on the server .

Stop Hacking

Feb 6, 2009

a site i manage for a client is being hacked every couple of days, its not the actual site but the hosts server thats getting attacked, all sites on that server, well actually all thier servers.

They have made no attempt to sort this problem, i report it they look at the site and say "site loads fine for us" which it does.

All index files are having a base64 encode line written after the <body> tag, this adds hundreds of spam links which are hidden with display:none; they also add .html to application types in htaccess for php to run in these files too.

Problem is, i am moving the site to another host but cannot change the nameservers to the new host's untill the client returns from a holiday, so i must keep the site up on the insecure host for now.

I am removing the spam code almost daily, is there anyway i can stop this attack happening for the time being, the host does nothing.

Hypervm Hacking

Jun 8, 2009

As well all know there has been a hypervm exploit which may have taken down fsckvps and other hosts have been having attacks. If possible install any program that will warn you of a connection to your server and or provide input on what it may or may not be.

I myself Just had a blank php format file uploaded to a clients vps and It tried accessing other vps servers. As far as I know the ip was rapidly changing and untraceable (this may or may not be from the exploit), If anyone else is having hypervm attacks or server attacks please post here so instead of working within our own company's we are working as a group of over 10 thousand+ wht members to solve this issue ourselves.

(mods may move this wherever)
