    Talking ISP malicious behavior

    Peace upon you every one,

    lately i've notice while surfing the web that i'm getting the following url while accessing google

    Code:
    http://netsweeper.gizasystems.local:8080/webadmin/deny/index.php?dpid=49&dpruleid=56&cat=28&ttl=-200&groupname=default&policyname=default&username=-&userip=41.237.232.135&connectionip=1.0.0.127&nsphostname=netsweeper.gizasystems.local&protocol=nsef&dplanguage=-&url=http%3a%2f%2fwww.google.com.eg%2f
    notice that the url have some fields attached like my ip :

    userip=41.237.232.135
    most of you knows that some web apps use the url to transmit data to/from clients and some would use to store high sensitive data like session id's.

    any way i was thinking that my home page is changed or some malware is poisoning my DNS cash.

    but later i found that it was a dominated phenomena here in Egypt other people reported the same thing





    now if you look to the sub domain you will find that http://netsweeper.gizasystems.local:8080
    gizasystem is a well known local co in monitoring and filtering

    Zain Vodafone - SS7 Monitoring Solution

    In a recent project, Giza Systems teamed upp with Zain Vodafone to implement the SS7 Monitoring Solution. The solution, which is being implemented for a joint venture between the Vodafone and Zain groups for the second mobile operator in Bahrain, will offer great benefits for the companies to improve their network efficiency. Giza Systems has already successfully completed the first phase of the project.

    Telecom Egypt – SS7 Monitoring System

    Giza Systems implemented Signaling System 7 (SS7) Monitoring System which was in this case integrated with the Revenue Assurance system provided to Telecom Egypt,. SS7 Monitoring feeds the Revenue Assurance System with Call Detail Records (CDRs) to be reconciled with the CDRs collected through the switch. SS7 monitors the links between Telecom Egypt network and the Mobile, International and Intelligent Network (IN) operators. This system provides Telecom Egypt with Quality of Service (QoS) reports about its interconnect traffic with other operators.
    any way some people was saying that the government is trying to Monitor the local intranet not "block" but to know the content.

    i've changed my DNS ip to google open dns and since then i didn't get the url that i got before.

    i wana talk with you people about that what it could be and are they really up to something???

    Netsweeper is a content filter:

    http://www.netsweeper.com/

    I am sure that your ISP could provide the government with all of the info it needs, without having to resort to netsweeper. I am wondering if they are using it more for censorship than monitoring.

    all that **** about internet filtering/monitoring gives me a real bad "jinx" feeling

    so you mean that the system that is installed by my ISP is produced by this company http://www.netsweeper.com/
    or you just giving example??

    I am sure that your ISP could provide the government with all of the info it needs

    being a data transport doesn't mean you can know every thing

    They will know enough!!!..............you are drawing attention to yourself?

    Also, the instructions you send to a proxy have to go through your ISP first?

    And encryption will only work if the recipient has the key?

    Be careful my friend.............Egypt is a secular democracy in an area not noted for that sort of thing....................

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    "http://netsweeper.gizasystems.local:8080/webadmin/deny/index.php?dpid=49&dp...."?

    That looks like a proxy server in itself. Proxies are a common way to filter content.

    You might look at a commercial VPN service. Not sure what's available in your parts,
    but a VPN would definitely circumvent your ISP's proxy.

    Isn't dot local an automatically configured domain name for your
    own machine/lan? This would suggest that it is an interprocess
    communication with a proxy installed on your own computer.
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.
