6. On September 10, 2001, Donald Rumsfeld held a press conference to disclose that over $2,000,000,000,000 (2 Trillion) in Pentagon funds could not be accounted for.
Such a disclosure normally would have sparked a huge scandal. However, the commencement of the [9/11] attack on the World Trade Center and The Pentagon the following morning would assure that the story remained buried.

A new attack vector has emerged. This time, it's only necessary to view an image on a Web page in order to infest your PC with spyware, virus-laden payloads, keystroke loggers, spam zombies or whatever else is wrong with the Web today. As you might have already guessed, this happens by way of an Internet Explorer flaw, though the full scope has yet to be uncovered. The gist is that it is initiated through the loading of an image on a Web page, and is being exploited through popular auction, shopping, and search sites. The supposed intent behind this is to establish a large method of DDoS attack by pre-staging zombie workstations. I doubt this is the only headline we'll see regarding this issue.

Security experts are tracking a new piece of malware that appears to be compromising large numbers of Windows PCs and may be laying the groundwork for the creation of a large spamming network or a major attack in the future.

Analysts at NetSec Inc., a managed security services provider, began seeing indications of the compromises early Thursday morning and have since seen a large number of identical attacks on their customers' networks. The attack uses a novel vector: embedded code hidden in graphics on Web pages.

When visitors to a few particular Web sites—including popular auction, shopping and price-comparison sites—request pages that include the malicious graphics, the code automatically downloads itself onto their machines. Once installed, the code unpacks itself and loads a keystroke logger on the PC.

NetSec officials said the attack seems to exploit a vulnerability in Internet Explorer.

The code then forces the machine to contact two IP addresses—one in Russia and one in the United States. The Russian site is hosted on a broadband connection and is part of a network known for spamming and other transgressions.

After contacting these sites, the tool then downloads some other files to the compromised machine. NetSec officials said they are still analyzing the code and are unsure what the exact purpose of the new attack is.

"We think it's probably a staging activity for further attacks," said Brent Houlahan, chief technology officer at NetSec, based in Herndon, Va. "It may be setting up for a large DDoS [distributed denial of service] attack or setting these machines up as spam relays."

Compromised PCs often are used by attackers to launch large-scale DDoS attacks against one or more targets. And they also are valued by spammers who like to install software that enables them to send large volumes of spam messages from the machines. Using dozens or hundreds of compromised PCs makes it virtually impossible for investigators to track attacks or spam back to the original source.

Houlahan said he was unsure how many machines had been compromised at this point.

Thanks for the heads up, Liberal AC. Those guys never sleep, so we have to stay awake, too.

Take note that Liberal AC posted this in June of 2004, 5 months before lop.com took over another forum and "allegedly" infected the avatars and emoticons with malicious code.

I work my tail off to ensure that any images posted at my forum are safe for us all. If anything posted on my forum is ever found to be unsafe, I remove it immediately.
