    Found this in another site.
    Thought it might help some people here.

    OK. My first post. I don't do a lot of casino stuff, but a friend recommended this board when I mentioned I was loking for sportsbook sponsors.

    Anyway, on my main site, I've inserted the javascript code found at http://www.doxdesk.com/software/js/parasite.html on my most viewed page.

    This adds nothing to the page UNLESS the javascript code detects a parasite on the persons browser. If it does, it posts a warning about that particular scumware, and a link to where they can find instructions to remove it.

    Here's 1 hours worth of stats, 6 to 7pm on a Saturday:

    1278 unique surfers visited the site
    1132 of those were using MS IE
    1089 of those were using MS IE on Windows

    786 BHO instances reported (most surfers, if they had parasites, had more than one)

    Instances found, BHO name

    89 BDE (that's 8% of the people using MSIE/Win! - 3d media popup adverts)
    72 NewDotNet (DNS extension)
    54 NetworkEssentials (delivers targetted pop-up's)
    50 HuntBar (23 are HuntBar/Link - typically used to hijack affiliate fees from merchant sites)
    47 MoneyTree (porn site dialler)
    43 IEAccess (porn site dialler)
    28 IPInsight (form entry logger/spy)
    26 MySearch (search hijacker)
    23 HotBar (dynamically adds toolbar buttons to competitors' sites)
    21 CometCursor (dynamically delivers competing advertisements)
    21 IGetNet (hijacks MSN/Netscape search queries)
    20 lop
    20 RapidBlaster
    19 Comload

    Descriptions of all these parasites can be found at http://www.doxdesk.com/parasite/

    If everyone slapped that little javascript code on their websites, joe average surfer would find out he had parasites a lot quicker, and hopefully remove them and return the revenue potential to the people that deserve it - the site owners!

    Errrm. That was my post, almost an exact duplicate of a post I posted here a little while back. :^)

    But thanks for helping to spread the word!

    This forum and the casino one are the only one's I've posted this info on, so feel free to spread it around other forums.

    Cheers!

    am I right, did you do the server side setup with that in order to get the stats?

    I put the plain parasite.js on most of my pages and have started a pile of thank-you notes from it.

    that script only traps so many of them: are there others (that don't need setting up on my server) that indicate other scumware?

    I've got this on a couple sites, but thanks for the reminder, I need to add this to ALL of them.

    If every one of us pushed this script, it would help take back a little ground. I mean, think of the millions of hits our traffic generates.

    When using their detection site I found that:

    Your browser has been checked for parasites. None were found. (However this script cannot detect all of them!)

    Andrew Clover (of the doxdesk.com site) is an ABW member

    In my Real Life Work, we use a variation of Andrew's script on our local intranet to identify infected kit. Works quite well too.

    Ah! Cool!

    I sent Andrew an email recommending that he add a section to each page on his site (the ones telling how to remove specific parasites) giving instructions on how to switch off activeX in IE. That would prevent drive-by downloads of parasites, no?

    Eh, Dynamoo, I tried to check out the latest Homeland Security releases, but got an error: Perhaps I don't have HS clearance?

    What a great tool! I'm adding it to my web site (found a parasite I didn't know about ) and I'm also writing a little blurb about how people can make sure they aren't open to install on demand.

    Before I tell people the wrong thing I want to make sure I have it right - the box beside enable Install on Demand should be unchecked, right?

    Thanks,
    Kip

    I added a little bit of code to the DoxDesk Javascript that trys to pull a .gif off my webserver, by inserting an image tag in the <a href=" that displays the name of the parasite. The gif is named after the parasite, so I know exactly what parasites affected the surfer.

    I'm doing the same with my "poisoned hosts file" stats collecting. I'll have a full days worth of stats in a few hours time, and will report back with infection levels.

    Well, our development boys tweaked the javascript when they were testing to look for the registry key generated by MS Word.

    It's all javascript though.. a bit beyond little old me.

    (Does my sig work now?)

    ok, thanks. I also edited the code and already it is generating hits in my error logs.

    what's in bold is what I added to the script, it works great.

    h= h+'&lt;img src="'+pmv+'.gif"&gt;&lt;a href="'+parasite_URL+pmv+'.html"&gt;'+parasite_INFO+'&lt;\/a&gt;&lt;\/p&gt;';

    the errors should look like this: /Xupiter.gif, /BrowserToolbar.gif, /DownloadReceiver.gif, etc,.

    thanks for the tip.

    simple, I just added '+pmv+'.gif to the code, this will try and pull the gif off your server.

    It will also apend the parasite name onto the gif extension, which is easy to track in your logs.

    Very cool stuff! I am going to use this right away. I have been getting discouraged reading about all these commission stealers. This is a step in the right direction.

    By not having the gif to serve - it shows as a 404.

    This JS script is excellent.
    I'm just changing it around a bit to re-direct my users to a different site (which'll probably be parasiteware.com) automatically if it finds parasiteware on their pc.
    There's no need to let them browse my site, shop and buy if they are infected. They'll be wasting my bandwidth and parasites will steal my commission.
