Another hack

Some hacks are clever and successful. Others are neither. The following was just uploaded to my ftp, and the uploader tried to give it the name "index.htm".

And a picture that says the same stuff. Your guess as to what it means and the motive for uploading it, is as good as mine. It didn't work, of course. Anything that's uploaded to my ftp is A) renamed to something else and B) put in a place that isn't accessable from the internet. Mr San3, if that is indeed his name, failed.

I get a lot of attempted hacks via ftp. Usually, people upload a php that would give them control over my server. If they could access it over the internet. And if I was running php. Sometimes the php file is disguised as a jpeg, sometimes it's encoded. I think those are more likely to succeed than just uploading an index.htm file.

But not on my servers.


  1. Death maker is san3 almoot
    Upload file means that the site was hacked
    Index.htm and he upload shell in your site

  2. Well, I'm not sure that I'd call an upload to a public ftp site a "hack", the whole idea of it is that people are allowed to upload files to it.

    And he forgot to upload a shell.
