    Spyware Trojan sends Hotmail to your boss

    By Thomas C. Greene, The Register Aug 30 2002 5:30AM
    Here's a piece of software that will make any decent human being vomit. Proudly marketed by spyware outfit SpectorSoft, it's a lowlife Trojan called eBlaster which you can e-mail to anyone in the world foolish enough to use Windows and log their keystrokes, and force their POP mail and Hotmail and Yahoo Web mail accounts to copy you in everything going on.

    "eBlaster records their e-mails, chats, instant messages, Web sites visited and keystrokes typed -- and then automatically sends this recorded information to your own e-mail address," the company proudly boasts.

    It's marketed as a 'tool' for over-protective parents and savvy employers, but it's basically a script-kiddie toy which can be delivered surreptitiously to a victim. The potential for abuse is extraordinary, but the company makes no mention of that. They merely warn that if you don't own the computer you infect with their Trojan, you're violating their terms. Surely that stern warning should discourage the malevolent well enough.

    It's all part of a growing, post-modern set piece where the private communications of human beings is seen as 'abuse' on the job and where conscientious parents must prevent the next Columbine-style blood-fest by reading their children's personal correspondence. It's for our own good, after all. Wherever selfish, 'individual' human activity is strictly regulated, society always benefits. And what could be more noble than that?

    We therefore applaud SpectorSoft for their selfless contribution to the perfect society. ®

    RIAA Website Defaced
    Posted on Wednesday, August 28 @ 15:45:51 EDT by mrhappy

    The RIAA website was defaced today and as of right now their site is still down. Note that the defacer did not knock the site down, they put up this rather amusing statement instead (mirrored).

    ArsTechnica has this discussion; Dave Winer makes these observations; the Politech announcement contains the full text of the defacer's work.

    We at Hacktivismo extend our deepest condolences to the RIAA for sucking down a dose of their own medicine.

    thats why you shouldnt tell anyone anything personal over the internet. if it can fuck you over then why not pay for postage and do it old school style and get a PO BOX.
    i made the mistake once to put personal info online but im not so stupid anymore. theres a catch to everykind of communication, think about stuff before you put it on the web, worry, worry alot and become extremely paranoid about everything.

    It'd be more like a program hiding out on your computer in the background. So, permanent, no.

    Here is the message.

    RIAA against music sharing? Not anymore!

    RIAA to sue music sharers? Not Anymore

    With the legal file sharing service kazaa still online, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) today announced that it intends to offer the latest albums for download from riaa.org.

    As you are probably aware, the RIAA has been pursuing a policy of preventing this activity in recent months

    We have recently become aware that this approach is yielding only limited results and in some cases may in fact be harming sales and the artists' revenue stream.

    The RIAA wishes to apologise for the heavy-handed manner in which the popular chinese site Listen4Ever was closed down, and would like to present the following items for free download as a token of its goodwill.

    Of course the list is relatively small, but please be patient - we expect to offer over 300 next week. We also intend to offer pre-released movies in the coming months.

    If what you want isn't on the list, then please try Kazaa Lite - available here
