I think showing Ip addys is why so many people bitch about being hacked..
get rid of it and I'm sure most of the rate of people hacked goes down..

An IP address will never be secret. It can't be; that's how the internet works.

If people have problems with being "hacked", they should get a firewall or some sort of monitoring/protection software/hardware.

An IP address can be secret if you dont use AW.. they make no effort to stop
hacking.. there are other ways of getting IP addresses yes but this is the
easiest.. and.. Firewalls arent the best for stoping hackers.. take BlackICE
for instance.. it sometimes says an attack was second degree or something in
that vacinity.. what is that saying? It was almost beat? exactly.. no
firewall is perfect.. most just block major ports.. like Net Bios or other
major ones.. what if someone tried to hack you using port# 21? FTP port..
they can't close the port what if you want to upload something? ZoneAlarm is
the only one that is halfway decent.. no other firewall will block the port
like ZA.. so dont tell people to get firewalls.. also.. some people dont see
these NG's.. what does that say?

Ejection rights are restricted.. like a post I read in Community.. about
sexist people.. world owners are harsh to some people.. they have access to
the IP..

What right does AW have for knowing our IP? Eject by Citizen number.. not
IP address.. much more efficient.. you wont be able to reconnect and get
back in the world.. or what about an IP Spoofer? Many ways to stop the
ejection from happening.. eject by a citnum and they cant come back till it
done.. unless they have more than one cit.. which then u eject an extra
person instead of ejecting the same person 20 times.. anyway.. that proves
my point.. and I know some people agree with me..

The problem with ejecting by citizen number is that it doesn't work for tourists. Anyway, anyone that hosts a world gets your IP
address in the log anyway.

IP addresses can't be secret if you're connecting to any server on the internet. If you have problems with people "hacking" you
through your FTP port, don't run an FTP server (or at least not on such a well-known port).

That was an example.. port 21 is one of the many ports.. the highest port I
looked at was 3216 so other things could lead to hacking.. Napster for
instance..

The tourist thing is a problem.. and the world server.. but there has to be
a way to stop the Ip addresses being shown to people.. maybe change it to
where their Ip isnt shown..

anyone capable of hacking a computer can obtain IP adresses. With or without
AW browser.

Physically disconnecting the computer is the only 100% safe way.

I found nothing about second degree attacks in the docs
(http://www.networkice.com/docs/BlackICE_Def_UG_21.pdf), but there was
something about severity. The severity merely indicates how severe the
program thinks the "attack" is. It is not saying it is almost beat.

Hacking a computer is not a matter of going in with some force and kicking
things until they break and you can get through.

-there is a difference between incoming and outgoing traffic
-FTP uses more than only port 21
-any decent firewall can block any existing port
-you can only be hacked on a port if something on your computer is listening
there.

"the port"? You mean "the ports"? Anyway, there are many firewalls that can
block every port you want.

>.. so dont tell people to get firewalls..

why not?

> also.. some people dont see
> these NG's.. what does that say?

Usually it means they didn't look. If it's an issue with their firewall
software, they don't know how to configure it.

AW needs to know, or it can't send information around.

What if you have an annoying tourist around? Ban all tourists?

Sure you can. Become a tourist.

A good example for the informations a server can get about you without
trying to hack is at http://www.it-sec.de/vulchke.html

It is a security companies page, not a hackers page, so the risk is not
too big to make that test.

Physically unplugging the phone line to the computer is the only 100% safe
way.. its a thing called phreaking..

And if you pay attention I said "something in that vacinity" meaning
something around what I said.. that is close enough.. it is pretty much
saying it almost got beat by how big the attack was.. I pinged myself using
BlackICE and if gave me a minor error.. I did a whois on me and it gave a
medium.. isn't that something? whois and ping is almost the same thing..

Minor mistake sue me.. and who has the time to waste setting up a firewall..
unless you have important things to hide why you need a firewall anyway?

Listen to yourself.. you state two different things in one sentence.. and
they have nothing in common

Worse? How is that? why not block half of the IP out when trying to eject
someone? Also.. has no one tried to think of the BOTS.. a preston can tell
you someone's IP then tell you who runs that IP.. ejecting people isn't the
only problem..

> Prolly. Not everybody is well informed.

Exactly.. you state things over and over that were already covered.. and
things that make no sence..

Phreaking is actually "hacking" a phone line. IE - Playing certain tones into a payphone in order to trick it into thinking you
actually dropped money in the slot. Unplugging a phone line is not phreaking :)

THE EASIEST way to make sure that no one steals your account is to NOT store
your password in your AW browser! I haven't ever been hacked, wanna know
why? Because it is called an "anti-virus" software. That and I only download
and transfer when i know the person good, and the company.

I aint been hacked either.. its called I dont let people scare me.. if
someone knows your afraid of a hacker.. your an easy target.. I know more
than half the people on AW who say they can hack.. really can't.. some say I
can't.. I dont care if they think I can or can't.. but take someone like PKD
(PsYcHoKoRnDuDe).. he comes up ands says he will hack you if you mess with
him.. you say "I'm reporting you to AWCOM" he will hack ya.. (He uses
programs tho.. what a puss.) but if you just back talk till he shuts up.. 9
out of 10 times they won't bother.. unless they are a newbie hacker who
wants to show off..

IP addresses pretty much are like membership cards... when you first go to a
site or a program or whatnot, they get your ip for the first time, like when
you first register a membership card, they can track and personalize
settings based on your ip or membership card.. it's your identification to
other computers and systems, if your IP was well protected, a lot of very
popular website features would not be around.. it's amazingly simple to get
an IP address.. AW doesn't make it easier.. in fact, not every aw user can
get your ip addy from aw.. which is more then you can say about a lot of
other programs..

using programms and backdoors like bo and nb etc is not hacking as far as

[View Quote] My point is, it doesn't really matter if you hide them in AW or not. People
who want to hack can get them anyway. But hiding them and using cit#'s does
have some other consequences (such as putting all tourists on one heap), so
hiding IP's does no good.

Being able to kick on IP and/or cit# (your choice when you deceide to kick
someone) would be best, of course. Isn't this done already?

>

As I said... *physically* disconnecting. Physically means unplugging. And
you need to unplug everything capable of carrying data, and check for
wireless connections, since those aren't even really physical (but you can
probably disconnect them anyway, since they usually need a physical part)

>

yeah, so? Did I say it wasn't? No. Read better.

If you had paid attention in the first place you would have seen what it
meant anyway.

> it is pretty much
> saying it almost got beat by how big the attack was..

Absolutely not. The higher the severity, the more chance someone is
deliberatly trying to hack you. It never says it is almost beaten. And it
can be very wrong in it's severity. How do you think you beat a firewall
anyway? From what I read here you just watched too much sci-fi movies.

> I pinged myself using
> BlackICE and if gave me a minor error.. I did a whois on me and it gave a
> medium.. isn't that something?

Something stupid, yes. It gives an error on *pinging*? That's like "Hello,
do you exist?" "EEKS! They are trying to hack me!". Talking about being
paranoid.....

> whois and ping is almost the same thing..

wrong

You seem to think so.

Of course. Port 21 is the default port used to start a connection.

> listening

Dont want to be hacked on port 21? Don't run an FTP server on port 21.

that

Just wanted to be sure. Don't whine.

> and who has the time to waste setting up a firewall..
> unless you have important things to hide why you need a firewall anyway?

It's not about hiding stuff. It's about preventing people from entering your
computer to mess it up, causing you a lot of trouble and costing you a lot
of time. If I have access to your HD, I can read all your email. Would you
want that, even if you have nothing to hide? Guess not.

>
> Listen to yourself.. you state two different things in one sentence.. and

Why did you come up with this "some people dont see these NG's.. what does
that say?" anyway?

Oh, and they do have something in common. They are two reasons why people
wouldn't see these newsgroups.

Yes. What about tourists?

>
> Worse? How is that?

*sigh* Do I need to spell it? T O U R I S T S

All tourists share a common cit#. So, to ban one, you have to ban them all.
There was a reason I asked that three times, you know. You avoided the
question three times... now answer it. If you can.

> why not block half of the IP out when trying to eject
> someone?

If you only eject, you don't block IP's. But if you also ban, blocking a
bunch of IP's (and of course unblock them after a while) is still better
than banning all tourists.

> Also.. has no one tried to think of the BOTS.. a preston can tell

So what? Let bot's tell you IP's.

>

Yeah, sure... in this post, you first state it's already covered, and then
say something that clearly indicates you don't even *get* what it is about.
Get a clue. And answer the question. If it is really already covered, that
won't hurt you.

> and things that make no sence..

Your first post didn't really make sence on some parts. I just reacted on
that... so if there are some weird topic jumps here, that's all your fault.

If you're so concerned with being 'hacked,' just don't associate with such
losers. I assure you, REAL hackers (and I would know, trust me) won't even
bother screwing with you unless you strike first -- not to mention that they
consider these little joke 'hackers' you talk about to be nothing but common
lamers. Simply stop associating with such worthless people.

afraid of you.. I am not afraid of being hacked.. I am well experienced.. I
never said PKD was a good hacker did I? I said he was a hacker.. no good or
bad in front of it.. but if I had to pick one it would be bad cause he is a
fake.. he can't literally "Hack" a computer.. he uses programs as J B E L L
stated.. he justs gives the program to them and theirs does the rest.. that
is being a pussy.. anyway.. whatever rolu was getting at I dont know but
just drop the subject already.. I thought it would be a good idea just to
get rid of some big idiots in AW that get hacked by not letting people see
their IP but obviously that is a bad idea.. why? I dont know.. here is the
best idea in the world.. just dont show the person's IP.. eject USING the IP
but dont show the user ejecting someone the IP.. instead of saying the IP
make it say "Ready" or something.. it won't take much code changing..
