Google Proof Sites!

June 27, 2007

Logic dictates that there are sites so secret that they want to be anonymous. Obviously, the first level of protection from intrusion would be to not have anybody know you are there. On the private sector security level’ you would have to have a compelling need for domestic and foreign search engines to suppress all positive and negative comments about you to the point that proving your existence is difficult unless you type in the exact URL for the site.

I always try to checkout a website before I go to it figuring that there must be a lot of public information on most sites. I mean I Google it to see what people have to say, I look at aboutus.org for information and also alexa.com. I also run a few traceroutes to see were I think it was located and the probability of honeypots along the route. I also do a whois search. By the time I get to the site my main purpose is to rip the code as I know pretty much everything about the site.

Occasionally, I get served a whopper as the site automatically redirects me to a kiddie porn delivery machine which could send me to jail. ShockMeShocker.com was one of those mystery sites with a hidden foreign whois file but the traceroutes kept on tracking back to new York. About us said it had no code on the home page and Alexa said it had no traffic rank. When I ran an MSN search there was no information and when I Googled it, they said there were 118 references until I went to page 2 then it said there was only 20. The cache home page was not available. Searches from Europe and AOL were equally illusive.

My point is that not that this is just another government kiddie porn site that can send you to jail, but now we have American porn sites that are averse to publicity.

Go Figure!

Wrong On So Many Levels!

June 26, 2007

I just purchased five used hard drives for $50 to continue tracking domestic kiddie porn. I mean some one should expose (haha) these criminals. While the Feds are diligently pursuing old men and children who possess just one of these pictures, they are ignoring kiddie porn sites hosted in America and delivering their stuff to Americans.

These sites are well protected and you can get the list here. Now when playing the game, you’ll find dozens of ways to get attacked by spawned kiddie porn and it will come so fast, you will never be quite sure what is on your machine, how it got there or where it comes from, so that makes removal difficult.

As I said before, I’m really never sure if all the crap is gone and as pointed out by “on request” these virus are a lot more powerful and talented than most people give them credit for so more stuff could be hidden anywhere. The only solution I have to insure there is not one picture on a drive is the “Lot’s wife turned to salt” approach. This means I need a never ending supply of hard drives and anything above 4 gig is enough to surf the web and do research particularly when you have zero faith in the integrity of electronic storage.

Speaking of the lack of integrity of electronic storage, four of the drives that I purchased have been wiped, but one came from a police department computer and had never been wiped.

Fucking unbelievable.

This drive had a plethora of training documents, the names of four captains, Sergeants and coworkers, cookies that identify the officer’s bank, phone and electric company, the email account and more. Now cops are fairly stable so the five year old drive with all the info and the training manual plus a public newspaper to update department information and there’s enough background for Kevin Mitnick’s friends (The Art of Deception) to start dribbling down their chin. I mean it might not work in Washington but a move to the hither lands would probably get you a cop’s job or allow you to impersonate one for whatever nefarious reasons you dreamed of.

An even funnier use would be to load it up with kiddie porn from the era on an old machine with a rolled back BIOS clock, Then erase all index.dat files while leaving the cache file of kiddie porn pictures, remove the index.dat removal tool and wipe the tracks of removed files. Send this lovely package to the FBI and no defense will be possible. Leave Window washer, AdAware and Norton because none work very well to hide your surfing history. They will have another victim for a high profile persecution proving that no one is above the law.

So why fuck this poor cop who probably did nothing more that trust his IT Department?

Because it’s so fucking easy.

I mean why did the Feds fuck Charles Stefano at trial by having Shannon Perkins continuously perjure herself with obvious and indefensible lies?

Because it’s so fucking easy, they did, and they won.

This is all so wrong on so many levels.

Index.dat the XP-ress Ticket to Jail

June 23, 2007

In my review of Window Washer, my prime complaint was that it promised to bleach or shred all my sensitive data and wipe away my residual activity records including temp files, cookies, history and cache files. Promises from their website include:

“Window Washer cleans all aspects of your browser activity, including Internet history, address bar, cache, cookies, and more. Mozilla and Firefox users now enjoy the same online privacy protection that users of Internet Explorer, AOL and Netscape already enjoy.”

Yet when I ran an index.dat Analyzer search for all index.dat files, I found several that were not erased and left a pretty complete record of all my activity.

Now remember, the index.dat file is the ones used at trial to convict a person of having very bad taste. It keeps track of search terms, and sites visited, and also thumbnails of all images. This is a permanent record that takes almost a herculean effort to remove, and because it is so misunderstood, I’m not sure what the next generation of record keeping files looks like and whether that can be found or erased. Minimally, anything that index.dat Analyzer can find for free, the legal programs can do as well or better and the secret stuff used by the FBI, CIA and NSA is probably even better.

So needless to say, when I purchase a program that promises to protect me and it fails to do even the most basic job at the task, I get a little miffed. Quite simply, Window Washer failed to remove any of my images, surfing history or cookies from the index.dat files so the record of my surfing was near perfect for anybody that wants to find it. In essence, a near perfect waste of money.
