How would anybody (newbies and old timers) that came to AW environment know
the difference of the "trusted sources" unless the sources have been tested,
approved, and posted on a d/l site?

I telegramed Calpantera about that he said he was thinking of the same thing

Telegram from Calpantera, sent Wed Jul 23, 2003 18:58:

I was thinking the same thing. Maybe even having the installers created,
code signed and hosted by AW

I could be wrong, but I thought Weebo's question was "how would newbies know
which is a trusted source or not, when first coming to AW. Its all very
good spewing loads of URLs you know are safe - but how did you discover they
were safe?

Ugh. That's rather paranoid if you ask me. The simple solution is educating
people not to open anything at all, as has happened here. And while we're
discussion trusted sources, that was just what our friend M a t t exploited
to distribute it, first take a few citizenships, then abusing the trust
others had in the stolen accounts to further distribute it.

Don't just accept a bot/application without even asking what it does
("toolkit for AW" tells a *lot*, doesn't it...), or without getting a demo.
If you do accept something and it seems suspisious to you, investigate it.
Look in your process list (under Win9x/ME you won't get access to all
processes through CTRL+ALT+DEL unfortunately), in your registry, etc. A
packet sniffer can be usefull too.

I doubt everyone is going to be willing to give out their sourcecode to
AWI, and what would it help to have it code signed and hosted by them if
it's really a trojan?

If you'll read my other posts, you'll notice that my signature always
has my hosting URL on it. I just didn't take it out of my signature for
that post and it was listed twice. :)

Exactly. Plus it was very easy to see this was a trojan... this was no AW
utility site - there wasn't even an SITE for you to look at.
