    ill try to explain what has happened to me.

    I have received today spam in my email which invites me to participate in a forum...this one:

    http://www.chuchadas.cl/foro/

    The strange thing was the the message was sent by the foroche.com administrator...which is a forum that i use to go. So i thought that this guy used an email list to promote the other one....so i wrote him complaining about him....I also registered myself in chuchadas.cl to complain about it...yu can see my post in "GENERAL" TOPIC.

    ..hehe..but what was my surprised when i visited foroche.com -valencia cf forum- that i realized that it was hacked -and still not working right- 2 days ago...and several post in foroche were aiming that some members of Chuchadas.cl hacked in the last day several forums to promote their site....I said omg!! what have i done...coz now my ip address is in chuchadas forum as long as i have registered my account...

    You can see foroche hacked here -they are using a provisional format-:

    http://boards2.melodysoft.com/app?ID=forolibredeforoche

    So my question...am i in risk of being hacked having this security:

    -look´n´stop (all ports locked)
    -nod32
    -TH antitrojan (using resident monitor)

    Do i need something else? am i too paranoic?

    P.s. Vbulletin supports that forum...can i complain to them if somethings happens to my system?

    As long as you have a decent firewall you should be fine. This inciddent only tells them you exist. All you should expect is maybe a few more attacks on your firewall but as long as your secure you should be fine.

    have you tried seeing what your IP address is now to see if its the same as the one posted? start>run>cmd> then type in ipconfig

    those sites where probably hacked because they werent protecting their passwords, so unless you are running a server you should be OK.

    someone with more knowlegde then me will probably come along and tell you more, i just wanted to post because you sound desparate :)

    What type of Internet connection do you have? The majority of people on the Internet have easy to change dynamic IP addresses, though certain types of ISPs maintain the same IP address per customer for extended periods of time. If you fully cycle your connection, there is a fair chance you'll get a new IP address.

    I would say talk to your ISP and tell them what is going on. I went to the site but it was in spanish and I don't speak spanish that well. :)

    tx friends...but i think it is all a false alarm...sorry im so ashamed :oops: ...the problem is that the admin of the forum use a signature that reflects the ip, os, and browser from the one watching the post...lol...the admin´s name is "el arquitecto"....maybe you can check it out by yourself...even if you are guest shows all that data, but i guess that only can be viewed by the ip owner...a really tricky stuff...anyway sorry for the annoyance....



    :D

    At least you came here for help. I seen them on a few boards. My wife had the same reaction you did when she saw her IP on a forum. Like I said before it's in spanish and I'm not good in spanish but I'll check it out.

    hehehe...pheww...i feel free now...yu have to understand the circumstances:

    -this guys hacked foroche.com yesterday
    -i was the only one complaining....no member foroche has dare to surf the site
    -the admin had made my complaining post sticky..then he turned the sticky thing off.
    -he calls for his hackers friends to write about it in the post
    -my ip there -lol-

    Well now it really seems a pathetic tragic-comic situation hehehe
    :D

    I'm one of the admin's of chuchadas.cl ("El Arquitecto"). You dont need to worry, the hackers are just users of our forum (not friends). I've made your post sticky because a lot of people where complaining about their sites hacked, and i've posted our opinion of that in your post.

    Bye,
