aa419 DDoS Aug 2013 Breakdown

Over the past few days, aa419 has been under a DDoS attack once agin. Somewhere out there, there is a happy “scammer client”.

It just confirms the effectiveness of aa419.org However in this instance the attacker chose to highlight a listing for http://www.gline-bank.com/…

aa419.org Purchase Inquiry

aa419.org Purchase Inquiry

This just arrived in the aa419 email. We thought we would share it as it shows how everyone is an “expert”. However, it would seem this expertise is limited to devious, unethical and other privacy invading tactics much frowned upon on the net. However the term “expert” cannot be linked to knowledge in this instance. Subject: aa419.org Purchase Inquiry Date: Thu, 9 Aug 2012 20:13:10 -0700 From: Jennifer R.

A mistaken assumption in DDoS

A mistaken assumption in DDoS

AA419 is under a DDoS attack once again. This has become a regular event, yet never fails to silently amuse the AA419 members. It is a sure sign that we have hurt criminals. There may be many reasons to DDoS a website. A DDoS may be a protest against institutions such as we have seen in the Anonymous DDoS’es on financial institutions and like in Operation Payback. They may be politically motivated as in the case of the Georgia DDos…

AA419 DDoS: India’s Crisis with Cyber Security

The DDoS against AA419 is still ongoing. One issue that became clear early on in the DDoS, was that numerous botnets were attacking the AA419 web server. Also extremely noticeable was that the bulk of the attack traffic was coming from India. As such we contacted CERT in India. CERT India’s response was extremely quick, thanks to the marvels of electronic communication. They read our email within minutes of it being sent. We knew this based upon a read notify…

Were back and out to get them again

Were back and out to get them again

Well, while we are back and watching the lemmings bots destroy themselves, there is a big reason for concern for one specific country. But I’m getting ahead of myself…. The trip back was not a simple one. I suspect our old server lost all will to serve mankind any further after it saw how certain groups of miscreants were preying on their fellow human beings. We thanked it silently and laid it to rest. A newer and stronger server had…
