well, if u have visited the IRC lately, you would know that both sum and I have been attacked within the last week. What happens is:
1. Kill by server
2. Person(bot) joins with your nick
3. Your nick is unregistered.
4. Person(bot) sits on channel with your nick.
Well, yesterday(when i was attacked), just before I left, I closed all of my programs, but yet i still had 1 port open.
It was 80, and I was connected to 184.108.40.206.
Now logically this is the ip of the attacker.
However i just did a little /whowas dashocker and I found:
dashocker was [email protected]
*IP Removed By Admin* * Richard "Princess" Iron
dashocker using irc.undergroundnews.org 10/29/2002 13:01:45
hmm, now I have two options, either it was Curse or some attacker. I don't think it was Curse, but...well anyway, another piece of info is sum runs Win2000 and I run Win98.
I was wondering if anyone else has had it happen to them, what it is, who is doing it, how they are doing it, and what can be done to stop it?
