Internet Security Site For Sale - 07/23/05 12:21 AM

Ebay is bidding out an internet security website.

It's not worth what they're asking for, but no one has bidded on it, and the price keeps going down.

Thought you guys might be interested.

Yeah, I suppose DoS Help is a pretty stupid name for a security company - If you need help with a DoS attack, you probably aren't gonna be able to get online in the first place...

But I hope someone buys it anyways, b/c if the site goes down, then where am I gonna get the Trojan and Virii port lists that I need for my - um - research.

Wow, you are a newb... You know the Operating System DOS, that Microshit first developed for IBM? The piece of shit they sold BEFORE they even owned it? The thing that's been around well longer than Denial of Service was even spoken?

I'm going to assume that this actually WAS Gizmo for the sake of simplicity.

First of all: WTF!?!?

Yes - I do know what DOS is. (I use Windows afterall)

Second of all, the website is DoS Help. It's pretty clear if you read the banner on the site. :p

Yes, it was me... I see nothing on the site (other than the punctuation) which would lead me to believe it had anything to do with Denial of Service...

Re: Internet Security Site For Sale - 07/24/05 08:13 AM

The reason I know for sure is because I origionally found the site through this link:

DOSHelp.com "Provides security incident reporting services for victims of Denial of Service (DoS) , intrusions and system scanning attacks."

That used to be their mission statement, but it's not directly on the site anymore since they expanded to spyware and viruses - now their mantra is "Security, Privacy, & Anti-Phishing".

- but seriously Giz, you're losing it - why would you think that "Security, Privacy domain + website" had anything to do with DOS?

Well, firstly I didn't look at the site too closly (I have a fuckin newborn and ADD for gods sakes, do you really expect me to pay THAT much attention?), secondly the auction made no referance that it was a Denial of Service "recovery" site, it strictly stated "for sale, doshelp.com"...

BTW, DOS was an operating system, as with any operating system one could be a paranoid bitch (look at weeve for god sakes, the fucker is so paranoid he's about to be homeless)

Damn, you win. I only have ADD, three uninvited houseguests, and these ticks from all that Ritalin.

DUN DUN DUN... lol... He was pretty good for me earlier, let me get some coding (About an hour and a half) out of the way that I've been procrastinating on (see the "Opinions on Site Design" thread in the Web Design section); He's not really a cryer, but shit, when he wants something he knows how to whale...

Re: Internet Security Site For Sale - 07/31/05 10:05 PM

That's a pretty 'bold' statement!...I hope you can back it up.

I put many years into that site, I answer people's call for help (free I might add).

I was wrong to have never charged anyone for information provided there...ya just get USED that way...then when people think you're not listening, they talk bad about you!

Did you even read WHY I was selling it??....

Re: Internet Security Site For Sale - 07/31/05 10:13 PM

We don't really care why you're selling your site but I take it's due to the story attached with your auction... One would think that with some easy marketing and advertisements one could end up making the site pay for itself as I see you've tried to do with the huge amount of advertisements on the site...

In any case, this thread was created to get my attention as i enjoy keeping such communties alive (such as this one when I bought it for $3k); but your asking price is a little more than what I have lol... Besides, I could take a large chunk off of my mortgage for your asking cost...

3k? For this? Wow was your investment worth it?

Re: Internet Security Site For Sale - 08/15/05 03:47 PM

I've at least broken even; now if only the site would support itself... the onlyway that's going to happen is with the ad's, but that requires user interaction
