    Router & anal sex

    Yesterday something shocked me!
    I was about to visit some daily sites, like antionline.com, slashdot.org etc.
    When all this sites redirected me to sites containing anal porn etc. (Yuuk)
    I later checked the configuration for my router and found out that some connections where
    redirected..
    How is this possible for anyone to change?
    It must have been done by someone outside in the sweet internet..

    um, lemme see... router password was still the default and someone got in and screwed around with your settings??... weak password on your router... all signs seem to be pointing to lack of knowlege resulting in user error...

    My recommendation, turn off remote management, unless you really need it....

    Use a really strong password. I use a 16 digit alpha-numeric password......

    Learn from this mistake...... if you use a wireless router use MAC filtering.....

    Well Defzons sorry to hear you had that happened, but its just a fact of life. What type of router do you have? You need to secure your router better. Look into the routers handbook that came with it, there will be instructions in there on how to get into your router and secure it better. If you have a Linksys you can even install a firewall in it. I would also suggest changing the IP address to a Class B address but leave the subnet mask set at class C. Use a more complex password (but dont forget it) if you have MAC address restriction available, only allow your MAC address to connect to the router. Encryption is also a good key but this can also be cracked. Sounds to me that your hacker was just trying to get your attention, so get to securing it before he comes back to really do some damage.

    Hold on... before jumping on the router.... have you checked your hosts file?

    Winston, I think that pretty much says that it's not his hosts file but good thinking nonetheless.

    Well, it seems to me if your router has been compromised it is only prudent to assume that the whole damn system has been as well? You may now be the proud host to all sorts of trojans, bots and backdoors, just waiting to phone home.

    You obviously need to secure the router as suggested, but I would also thoroughly scan your PC(s) as well. Winston has a good point, but I feel you need to go further.

    The textbook answer would be to reformat and re-install your operating system. Then restore your files from backups.

    Cheers
