      'Cyberwars' bring real-world conflict to the Web http://www.zdnet.com/zdnn/stories/ne...687046,00.html
      BY John Galvin
      Smart Business
      February 16, 2001 11:33 AM PT

      The latest conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is now in
      its fifth month. At press time, the war had claimed more than 350
      lives (mainly Palestinian), with as many as 10,000 injured.
      Meanwhile, the parallel cybercampaign being waged by both sides
      suggests that future regional conflicts will play in a global
      theater. In essence, every company online represents a potential
      target. "It's like a guerrilla war with all types of combatants,"
      says Ben Venzke, manager of intelligence production at the private
      Internet security consultancy iDefense. "We're seeing everything
      from unsophisticated de face ments being done by teenagers, to known
      terrorists plotting attacks. Unity [a Palestinian umbrella group]
      has recruited a group of IT professionals and admins called the Iron
      Guards, and they are very sophisticated in what they can do."

      Venzke has been hunched over his computer since October monitoring
      Web sites and chat rooms, working his "intelligence-community
      sources," and preparing clients for imminent attacks. He sees no
      sign of a slowdown. His most recent count listed more than 90
      Israeli sites, mainly business and government, that have been
      attacked, while 25 pro-Palestinian sites have been attacked.
      Attackers have used everything from viruses like Melissa and
      LoveLetter to dubious sounding programs like EvilPing and Attack2.51.

      Unity, which has ties to the militant Islamic group Hezbollah, launched
      Phase 3, its denial-of-service campaign, largely by word of mouth. Through
      obscure hacker chat rooms and encrypted e-mail messages, pro-Palestinians
      from around the world were directed to a Unity Web site. Once there, they
      were automatically redirected to yet another site and greeted with this call
      to action: "Be one of the defenders of Resistance's Web sites." Surfers
      could then click on one of three links and instantly and effortlessly launch
      a FloodNet (DoS style) attack from their computer against 11 Israeli
      government groups and businesses. Among those pinged into submission were
      the Israel Defense Force home page, the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange site, and
      the Bank of Israel. But it was target No. 12-New Jersey-based Lucent
      Technologies-that sent a warning flare to businesses across the Atlantic.
      The so-called war would not be confined to the Middle East, and American
      businesses could end up casualties.

      And this is only the beginning. In an e-mail interview, a
      representative of Unity warns that Phase 4 will "attack Zionist and
      pro-Zionist e-commerce sites. . . . If any Islamic or Arabic or
      Anti-Zionist Web sites [are] attacked, the reply this time will be
      over any scale."

      While Unity has been busy trying to coordinate attacks, most of the
      damage has been done by freelancing hackers. By most accounts, the
      Web war in the Middle East started on October 6, 2000, when a
      pro-Israeli hacker launched an attack from a Web site called www.wizel.com. Among the sites attacked were the official sites for
      Hamas (a Palestinian Islamist movement), Hezbollah, and the
      Palestinian National Authority. "That caused a major retaliation by
      the Palestinians," says Venzke. Indeed, many pro-Palestinian hackers
      from around the region began defacing Israeli sites. A group of
      Pakistani hackers called G-Force Pakistan, plus a hacking duo named
      mOrOn and Nightman, as well as someone named tRicky, have
      independently defaced scores of Israeli sites.

      A hacker named DoctorNuker broke into the American-Israel Public
      Affairs Committee Web site and made off with 700 credit card numbers
      and then sent out a mass e-mailing to 3,500 people whose addresses
      he also pinched. The FBI has kept a low profile but pointed callers
      to a National Infrastructure Protection Center's advisory that
      warned businesses to update their security.

      As the cyberwar has progressed, attacks from Unity and other
      Palestinian groups have become so intense that they effectively shut
      down NetVision, Israel's leading ISP, which claims to have 70
      percent of the market there. In response, the Israeli Defense Force
      announced it would use AT&T as a backup ISP. "When that was
      announced, there was instantaneous reaction in the chat rooms," says
      iDefense's Venzke. For its part, Unity claims in an e-mail to have
      successfully attacked AT&T in retaliation for that company doing
      business with the IDF. "We have used the DoS attack against them and
      we were successful three times, [with] one of them the site was
      blocked about 72 hours," the e-mail says. Asked about this, an AT&T
      spokesperson declined to comment.

      "NetVision is an example of why we have so much more to lose," says
      Tenenbaum, the reformed hacker. "Our country and our businesses are
      dependent on the Internet, and in the future it will even be more
      so." If a cease-fire were declared tomorrow, would the cyberwar stop
      as well? This "[will last] as long as the fighting continues," mOrOn
      and Nightman write in an e-mail response. "[We] believe in miracles,
      and if such a miracle does happen [we] shall be the first one[s] to
      cease-fire this so-called cyberwar!"

      hmmmmmmmmmmmm... lots of things .. personally have seen traces on HUGE sites for examply liberty.fr network, some local .nets here in toronto area, and lots of other sites, where i DID logged in (telnet rocks), and saw what others had left behind..

      basically .. pulling a crappy security like SSL on sites, people ASSUME that okay now its safe .. what they do is secure the COMMUNICATION only .. the data, which is MORE critical then the communication taking place isn't secure that much..

      yahoo.com might remember an attempt that was done in their shopping store website 4 months back when logging in via telnet OVER and OVER caused their kickass port80 servers to give the intruders root* access to their unix servers where all credit information and other sensitive info was stored..

      liberty's servers in france also encountered a MINOR problem in the entry of Network Solutions'(*) DNS table which resulted in going to www.excite.com whenever users use to try to go to www.liberty.fr .....

      and almost everyone has heard about the EBAY's hack when lots of credit cards information was stolen..
      ------------------------------------
      root-access = super user (administrator if u wanna go towards microsoft lingo) account, gives UNRESTRICTED, FULL access to ALL system's resources.. (kapkapi)
      Network Solutions Inc = Formerly known as InterNic, company responsible for routing and storing "NAMES" to ip addressings and related things.

      iViews Attacked by Hackers
      (LOS ANGELES) iViews.com, an Islamic news website, was attacked today by hackers who took down the front page and replaced it with an Islamophobic message.

      While it is not yet clear who may behind this latest cyber crime against yet another Islamic website, the hacker made threats against such Islamic organizations as Hamas, Fatah, and Hezbollah.

      "Soon I will be in amry [sic] and i will join to the war against the islamic eXtremism," wrote the hacker.

      "This kind of attack is just part and parcel of the work we do at iviews.com. When you stand up for what's right and expose the injustices done to Muslims around the world, you can expect that others will try to silence you," said iviews.com editor Hebah Abdalla.

      The website's technical support staff is currently working to restore the site and have alerted local and federal authorities. Meanwhile, they are urging all webmasters of other Islamic websites to take extra precautions to avoid similar attacks.

      A discussion group for Muslims with technical experience and knowledge in this area has been established at the Islamicity website at http://www.islam.org so that ideas can be shared on how to prevent this from happening to other websites.

      And I think thats the best stretegy..... Keep the secret info Isolated.....ppl can live without shopping online......

      Secondly credit carding (the major and only payment system on the net) system itself is crappy.....you need what CC number, expire date and the name
      .....chalo ji karlo gal.....

      you can get this info off the pizza hut docket when you order pizza.... The docket in changes atleast 5 hands....And there is no accountability where it goes or who does what with it

      hmmmm why cant I post long msgs
      admin a mail coming yur way

      "Sorry! We have flood-control activated. You cannot post within 90 seconds of your last post. Please try again after this period of time elapses.

      Well, I run a site which is kinda a part of this cyber-jihad, as I like to put it. Just do search on any major search engine with the keywords "army in kashmir" and find the one with the .net tld. That's it. And hey, don't forget to view the comments indians are sending in to me everyday.

      bye,
      Haydur.

      I think crippling israli websites is a good...esp government sites. It shows them in a way that some ppl around the world are with their palestinian brothers and sisters.

      who--me: Two responses.

      You are right. CC shopping is a pain. But living without it is a pain also. I live in an isolated college campus; the nearest place to get even shaving basics is 35 miles away, and don't even ask about computer stuff So I have to buy off the web. However, there are movements towards more secure systems. Both American Express and Discovercard have come up with this single-use CC# concept, which seems a bit promising. Even if your number is leaked, it is invalid after the first use, which you presumably did since you had the number generated.

      Second, how long will it be till cyberwars start killing people :-? We all know that the air traffic control systems run on machines that is much less secure than Yahoo! or Ebay's servers. Will the logical next step in cyberwars be to wreak havoc in the physical world :-?

      Well....I always say that the CC system can be designed much better...... Sort of like two key encryption stuff...... It works real nice. Another invention I saw was a very small card reader....which connects to yur computer...and yur card presumably has a chip in it like tele cards.....so atleast you have to have the physical card to shop (it was a small project at Uni here)

      Cyber wars: they are fun ...... As for killing ppl.....they havent yet!!

      Basic aim of conv war IS to kill ppl even if they are troops......basic aim of cyber wars is NOT to kill ppl but to create hinderance and stuff........

      Cyber and electronic warfare (in conflicts such as gulf war) have actually reduced loss of life quite a lot. I have a article somewhere with numbers and stats, will post it.
