    Exclamation Web seems kinda slow? Here's why


    Dunno if you've noticed, last night and this morning I wasn't able to pull up about half of the web sites I usually visit. You may encounter the same thing.

    CNN
    Electronic attack slows Internet

    Saturday, January 25, 2003 Posted: 7:34 AM EST (1234 GMT)

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Traffic on the many parts of the Internet slowed dramatically for hours early Saturday, the apparent effects of a fast-spreading, virus-like infection that overwhelmed the world's digital pipelines and interfered with Web browsing and delivery of e-mail.

    Sites monitoring the health of the Internet reported significant slowdowns globally. Experts said the electronic attack bore remarkable similarities to the "Code Red" virus during the summer of 2001 which also ground traffic to a halt on much of the Internet.

    "It's not debilitating," said Howard Schmidt, President Bush's No. 2 cyber-security adviser. "Everybody seems to be getting it under control." Schmidt said the FBI's National Infrastructure Protection Center and private experts at the CERT Coordination Center were monitoring the attacks.

    The virus-like attack, which began about 12:30 a.m. EST, sought out vulnerable computers on the Internet to infect using a known flaw in popular database software from Microsoft Corp., called "SQL Server 2000." But the attacking software code was scanning for victim computers so randomly and so aggressively -- sending out thousands of probes each second -- that it overwhelmed many Internet data pipelines.

    "This is like Code Red all over again," said Marc Maiffret, an executive with eEye Digital Security, whose engineers were among the earliest to study samples of the attack software. "The sheer number of attacks is eating up so much bandwidth that normal operations can't take place."

    "The impact of this worm was huge," agreed Ben Koshy of W3 International Media Ltd., which operates thousands of Web sites from its computers in Vancouver. "It's a very significant attack."

    Koshy added that, about six hours after the attack, commercial Web sites that had been overwhelmed were starting to come back online as engineers began effectively blocking the malicious data traffic.

    "People are recovering from it," Koshy said.

    Symantec Corp., an antivirus vendor, estimated that at least 22,000 systems were affected worldwide.

    "Traffic itself seems to have leveled off a little bit, so likely only so many systems are exposed out there," said Oliver Friedrichs, senior manager with Symantec Security Response. The attacking software, technically known as a worm, was overwhelming Internet traffic-directing devices known as routers.

    "The Internet is still usable, but we're definitely receiving reports from some of our customers who have had it affect their routers specifically," Friedrichs said.

    The attack sought to take advantage of a software flaw discovered by researchers in July 2002 that permits hackers to seize control of corporate database servers. Microsoft deemed the problem "critical" and offered a free repairing patch, but it was impossible to know how many computer administrators applied the fix.

    "People need to do a better job about fixing vulnerabilities," Schmidt said.

    The latest attack was likely to revive debate within the technology industry about the need for an Internet-wide monitoring center, which the Bush administration has proposed. Some Internet industry executives and lawyers said they would raise serious civil liberties concerns if the U.S. government, not an industry consortium, operated such a powerful monitoring center.
    http://www.cnn.com/2003/TECH/interne....ap/index.html

    Check the traffic yourself @ Internet Pulse Looks like all the big routers are getting hit hard. Ironicly, the Internet Traffic Report is shut down.

    W32.SQLExp.Worm is a worm that targets servers running Microsoft SQL. The worm sends 376 bytes to 1434/udp - the SQL Server Resolution Service Port. Beginning at 5:31am GMT, we started to see a significant increase in the unique number of source IPs scanning for 1434/udp. Symantec Security Response highly recommends all MS-SQL server system administrators to audit their machines for known security vulnerabilities immediately.

    Symantec Security Response also recommends configuring perimeter devices to block 1434/udp traffic from untrusted hosts.

    Symantec Security Response is currently developing a removal tool for W32.SQLExp.Worm. Because the worm is only resident in memory, and is not written to disk, this threat is not detectable using virus definitions. Customers are recommended to follow the measures described above in order to deal with this threat.

    The worm has the unintended payload of performing a Denial of Service due to the large number of packets it sends out.



    Also Known As: SQL Slammer Worm [ISS], DDOS.SQLP1434.A [Trend], W32/SQLSlammer [McAfee]
    Type: Worm
    Infection Length: 376 bytes
    Systems Affected: Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP
    Systems Not Affected: Windows 3.x, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Microsoft IIS, Macintosh, OS/2, UNIX, Linux

    I had a big problem with the internet last night and couldn't get to half of the sites I usually visit even this one for a while. Guess that helps explain why.

    No offense taken. When I take some new pictures I will post them up here, I need to get some recent ones. It's always nice to have your pic's critiqued by others who have a fitness knowledge.

    Thanks Curt

    What the ****. How is that harrassment? I asked her if she had anymore pics. How do you know if I was harrassing her, being perverted, or what. How do you know I wasn't just impressed with her physique (from a bodybuilding point of view, not in the perverted way).

    Inzah Dude, I can't speak for Curt, but as far as I am concerned, all women here are to be treated with respect. I don't think Curt was trying to single you out, just set the tone. It's nice having a few girls like Jess and Hollywood over here. Their feminine perspective is kinda nice. Let's not spoil it with rude behavior.
