    Well damn scary.
    I just visited .com]www.[edited].com
    Altough they say that the sign up isnt available for current users..and not sure if they really work

    Well what i dound out is they hack email addresses and that too with illegal and spammed emails send to victims who open the greeting thinking its a greeting and not something that could hack their passwords.

    I mean thats sick. Is it legal ? I don't think so. I guess it should be stopped if its carrying out for real.
    Well that could be really dangerous to the system called "EMAIL" the most needed function of the internet
    cos people would then think a 1000 times before opening their mail.
    Hey loveundercover could i get a few answers dude ?

    Regards
    TGO

    I believe if ur website's activity of hacking email works...then it should be banned...sorry to be harsh but that's just not right... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] :rolleyes: :cool:

    Or is it...or is the web a place where cheating is got that frequent...and net surfing is even more dangerous with the scares of privacy ?

    Haiko - Expert Dude could u please investigate this...i don't think its real...but Who knows ?

    TGO,

    I am pretty sure it would work, it is not difficult to attach nor program out.

    The legalities of it, however, are more than questionable. I would not only recommend, but implore that Kahn not to post that URL in ABW because if it's illegal nature.

    Yup,
    That would be the right thing to do.
    However i would advise khan...that it shoudnt happen.
    cos i guess it is illegal.
    1. if the law authorities of the internet get to know about it...they might sue u in court...and it has happened to so many hackers in the past.
    And to top it all..u've displayed it openly on the site...that could create serious probs for you ...
    This is real serious advise. Dear, your an indian too. Well i am not sure how have u been able to not yet been reviewed by any authorities.
    Even India has started a cyber patrol
    and they too would sure such activities in court
    Regards
    Amit

    Its very Dangerous

    God do I hate spammers and all their hacking buddies feeding them the lists. As a webmaster of over 200 sites ( various webmaster@) I'm on multiple spamm lists selling for $14.95 per 15 million names. Add that to those who break into hosting servers with a minimum short term account and fish those domains for addresses with capture scripts and I end up with 200+ spamms per day no matter what filters I use.

    The only e-mail anyone ever gets from me and my web properties are direct responses or an Yahoo/eGroups wholesale club list they pay me 25.00 per year to get sent to them. That one gets 100% renewal with no opt-outs. Guess I'm willing to leave lot's of money on the table til someone invents e-mail merchant flyers embedded with my affiliate code at a reputable affiliate network. Even then only I control the e-mail address list to make sure it's targeted and converts above 5%.

    Mike,
    There is a way to thwarte those robots and crawlers. I a have script that is run from our servers that basically creates fake pages with fake e-mail addresses. The spiders crawl those pages (gathering the fake e-mails) and follow the links to other fake pages, and so on, and so on. You just put a small link with a 1x1 graphic on your front page so the spiders will follow from there. You can take a look at it by -Clicking Here-.

    I think the fact that I didn't use webmaster@ for an address until very recently has saved me loads of spam. Even without any robots or hacking it's a pretty safe guess that a site will have webmaster@ as an active address......

    So use something else--legitimate correspondants will see what your real address is, but the jokers who just get a list of domains and e-mail webmaster@ for all of them (and there's plenty that do that, based on the minimal amount of spam I get at other addresses) will get nowhere.

    As for my one webmaster@ , I use it for signing up for certain sites that have to have a place to send a confirmation email.

    You Are All going off topic friends.
    The thing is that site doesnt spam.
    It hacks.
    U sign up with them then u send a mail to anyone u want...that mail will be send as a greeting...
    When the user opens to read that mail...there is an invisible program generated that gets stored in ur windows...and then whenever u type a id and password be it on any site...the information is send to the person who send u the greeting...

    So its a buisness where anyone can become a hacker and hack anyone....
    Well another thing is yes...i do hate those spam mails as well....but sometimes....they are useful.....cos i like to get and read webmaster info....not those goofy emails speaking about "Great Deals, Great Bargains, Shop at discounted rates...etc etc

    Regards
    TGO

    A hacking virus, now that sounds very scary. Just think of what something like that could do.

    It could get into your computer enter your ftp, email lists, bank accounts, merchant accounts etc.

    I think email addresses would be the last concern on that list. :eek:

    The spamm hackers get into hosting services like www.pair.com and many others with minimum pay accounts that host over 100,000 domains. They then run their scripts to not only sniff out the e-mail addresses but also hack the send-mail features with seudo accounts and mass mail the names while hiding a return address. They even do this with ISP services like excite@Home cable modem accounts. I'll celebrate when the Government stops spammers in their tracks not only with huge fines but criminal breaking and entering charges in breaching hosting servers to get new names and access to CC account #'s. They love those NT ISS servers and last week got all account information on the playboy.com site. Porno e-mail for the masses and fresh CC #'s for the Russian mofia.

    Here is something related somewhat that really p**ses me off!

    My local isp is run by a bunch of Wisconsin Hicks that know nothing except how to send out your $22.00 monthly bill.

    I get all this spam from that server under my email address@MYMoronicISP.com (that's not real)

    I uncoded a spam I just received and discoverd it had be sent to

    Undisclosed.Recipients@triton.MyMoronicISP.com

    So I would think this email would go to every subscriber on the server. Idiots!

    I get these same undisclosed.reprecants@hostingcompany.net from 3 different hosting services and also my @home cable modem account. Were talking hundreds per day with no way to uncover who the culprets are with their financial services -loans -freebe offers to get off these lists which serve up to some spamm farm dummy account. No opt-out since those either bounce or add you to another list. These guys will eventually make e-mail marketing a thing of the past.
