    Default IP Address 176.10.99.201 tried accessing my account for Discussion Board

    The Swiss are trying to hack this site! Traced IP Address 176.10.99.201 that tried accessing my account to a site in Switzerland that is a known spammer. I have not logged in to this site in years!

    I received the following email from the Board Administrator:

    Default Norse (Cyber) Attack Map - live

    No necessary connection, but an interesting display of current on-going worldwide cyber attacks:
    The live (click →) "Norse Attack Map".

    Norse Intelligence Platform

    Every second, Norse collects and analyzes live threat intelligence from darknets in hundreds of locations in over 40 countries. The attacks shown are based on a small subset of live flows against the Norse honeypot infrastructure, representing actual worldwide cyber attacks by bad actors. At a glance, one can see which countries are aggressors or targets at the moment, using which type of attacks (services-ports).

    Hovering over the ATTACK ORIGINS, ATTACK TARGETS, or ATTACK TYPES will highlight just the attacks emanating from that country or over that service-port respectively. Hovering over any bubble on the map, will highlight only the attacks from that location and type.

    Norse exposes its threat intelligence via high-performance, machine-readable APIs in a variety of forms. Norse also provides products and solutions that assist organizations in protecting and mitigating cyber attacks.

    For more information, please contact: inquiry@norse-corp.com

    Include the Russians, Czechs, Mexico and countless African countries!

    I am not sure what they are trying to accomplish and do not really know of a way to stop it, other than blocking huge blocks of IP addresses, which causes the good guys to not be able to get in.

    What ever they are trying, it is not working at all, as all attempts- 100's a day - have been unsuccessful.

    I am sorry for this issue and wish they would just move on. No important banking info here!

    No important banking info, but maybe they are trying to figure out what brand of sleds we ride, who has the best pasties, what mods do we do.....then they will sell it back to the Chinese, who will in turn sell back to polaris, Arctic Cat and ski-doo....we are doomed and I am going to put my foil helmet back on.

    Default Cyber attack targets(?)

    I wonder what's so interesting to so many cyber attackers about the tiny little island target in the Gulf of Guinea, off the western equatorial coast of Central Africa — it looks like São Tomé and Príncipe (?) What could possibly be of such great interest there to so many cyber attackers?

    (See the The live "Norse Attack Map" in my previous post.)

    Also, what's the major tight cluster of maybe 12 targets in the center of the US (a bit west of St. Louis?) that seems to be the center of a major and on-going barrage of attacks? Of all potential targets in the US, what all is of such great interest there?

    Possibly a large tech area with huge central servers?

    I'm wondering why anyone would be trying to hack discussion forums? Nothing to gain from it. Could it be they are just trying to hone their hacking skills? Seems they could pick targets to at least try to get some credit info, or at least personal info.

    A while back I read that a theory that forums may not have the same level of security as other online things and since many people use the same screen names and passwords for everything, the thought was get log-in info from a easier target, then track where they bank and use the info you got from the forum to see if you can get in. Not sure how much effort that takes, or if it's even feasible, but I will say it caused me to double check that all my log in info for forums is completely different from any financial or shopping sites I visit.

    Default Junk mail?

    It's not necessarily related, but in just the last month or so I've started getting a slew of interesting items in my "junk mail" folder as well. Do they really think I'm going to open an email like any of these? I didn't just fall off the turnip truck/hay wagon! (thumbnail below):

    Ya your safe. Wink wink. The boys over to Kettering (as with many Universities ) have hacking parties. My passwords were just a moments inconvenience to them. (It was for demonstration purposes ). Kinda like locks on houses keep out the honest folks.

    Well now that makes me feel real good. Just really started using online banking in the last year or so. Maybe I'll go back to writing out checks to pay bills.
    Guess the bright spot is if they do get into my accounts, not much there for them to steal

    Doesn't really matter what you do. I got a call the other day from my bank saying someone came and tried to cash a check from my account. It was my check but they stole the check book and wrote it out to cash and teller was suspicious and denied cashing it. I went to pice station and filed a report and not a word even with cameras. I asked the teller what person looked like and they cannot give me that info,,,,, can you believe that!

    WOW-when it comes to trying to cash a stolen check I would think the banks would cooperate. Also, I would think police would cooperate in checking camera surveillance, etc. Unbelievable-no wonder crime keeps getting worse. If your check book was stolen, they'll probably try cashing another check with a different "pay to" somewhere else. I suppose you had to go to the bother and expense of closing out that account and starting another.

    Also, I didn't realize this thread started last spring about hackers and just couple days ago, we rec'd same letter from administrator with IP 77.247.181.162---so it's another different one but I put the info here in case this "hacker fun & games" continues.
