Report to the KMEC Temporary Mailing List

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
I set up a temporary mailing list at KMEC to cover for the main mailing list which has been inoperable since the hacking of their server two weeks back, and it was hacked this weekend

We are *definitely* being 'helped' in our amazing ability to crash machines (more logs--lovely things, logs).  At this point, I'd say the only people who have more access to our system are those who have the password for the front door.  I'm not sure what they did to the Canadian server this list runs off of yet, but it seems better now.

I've got plenty of data logged now, and I'm discussing the matter with Sid.

In the big scheme of things, I'd say this is a notable, but not salient item.

A 'salient' item would be (for example) the 'Elvis 30 #1 Hits' CD that was inserted into my desktop machine at my house over the last few days (dunno when, I noticed it when I rebooted the machine yesterday).

In order for that to occur, they have to have a key to my house.  While this wouldn't be the first time I've been 'visited' in my life (fourth major one by my count), it's certainly surprising to find that this little podunk place merits that much professional attention.

I don't think we need to sweat the front-door combo, in other words.  It won't be 'secret' past the first use, IMHO.  Locks really do only keep honest people honest.

This is hard-ball, as I understand it.  I don't know yet what the source is, but the methods are *decidedly* professional.  If it's not the government, it's someone with a LOT of money.  You don't get people like me working for free (well, not often, and only when their brains have been softened by cannabis use, apparently).
