Subject: Anyone else?

 

Lisa,

I’ve made a couple of donations, in the past with no problem.

I also have a fairly extensive background in computers, and I believe that perhaps Jim’s problem is that he has a worm or virus in his computer that is redirecting paypal payments to a spoof site. This is indicated by the fact that he got the “unusual changes” while making the second contribution. This infection probably occurred if he got a message from paypal stating that he needed to confirm his security settings, by clicking on a button in the email. (Hint: If you get an e-mail like this, always close it, then go directly to paypal, or whatever site needs to be “confirmed”, rather than clicking on the e-mail.)

It may be that it has inserted the IP address of the spoof site into his “Hosts” file, so that any attempt to access Paypal are directed to the spoof site. He may be able to cure this by doing a search on his hard-drive for “hosts” (don’t include the quotes), there is no extension on the hosts file (i.e. it isn’t hosts.txt, or hosts.doc, etc, just hosts.) He should open the file in notepad, remove any lines pertaining to paypal, and save the file.

However, the only sure way to cure this will be to run a ‘destructive recovery’ on the hard drive of his computer, which will erase the entire contents. If there is an option on his computer to do this by merely pushing a button, or combination of buttons, rather than using a set of cd’s or a dvd, DON’T DO IT!!!. Viruses have been able to attack the recovery partitions of our computers for some time, now, and thus the computer could be reinfected as soon as the recovery is complete. He will need to obtain a copy of the recovery disks from the manufacturer of the computer, and run the recovery from the disks.

If he saves any pictures, documents, etc, before the recovery, he should run the recovery, reinstall and update a good, up to date antivirus program, prior to replacing the backed up files onto the computer. This will reduce the probability that he would reinstall a virus hiding in his backed up documents.

Please pass this on to Jim.

I hope this helps,

John
 

Thanks John for taking the time to write.

 

Lisa,

Yes, I too had my credit card number stolen when trying to send you some funds via PayPal. That was on 5/11/07. I was using a very slow, 10-year old computer with no protection programs. I clicked on the PayPal link on your site and it gave me the PayPal home page and another frame pop-up asking me for verification of my account by checking my personal information... including my credit card number. Now I think that it was really dumb of me to fall for that one. I had never heard of this type of computer theft before.

In the next few days I got a call from my credit card company asking me about two charges, some Gucci shoes and some gold coins. I contacted the company selling the coins and canceled the order. But the shoes had been shipped to an address in LA. I filled a police report with the Fresno PD, Case 07-xxxxx (edited out). A few months after that I saw a story on TV by one of the investigative magazine shows about how this type of computer scam was being worked by groups of criminals in Nigeria or one of the other African nations with little governmental structure. They would use a stolen card number obtained in the same type of request for conformation of account information to order stuff on-line, get it delivered to a co-conspirator or some dupe in the US who would then ship the stuff to the African country. One of the items they showed on the show was the purchase of Gucci shoes! Nice coincidence!

So you might have some type of bot hidden in your PayPal link, or these criminal hits on PayPal just may be part of very dangerous dark side of the internet. I hope you get your security checked out though. It might increase the donations you receive, and I would love to see you stay on-line.

Thanks for your humor.

Brian

 

Check my security? I'll get Homeland Security on it right away. lol

 

Thanks for writing Brian but I doubt the problem is in my link to PayPal, your pc might have had a virus/worm as described above in the e-mail from John.

"Speaking of the budget, in his speech on the economy, President Obama said that we have to 'continue to spend our way out' of the recession. Now, I don't know much about economics, but aren't we like a trillion dollars in debt? Spending our way out of the recession? Isn't that like trying to drink your way out of alcoholism? I'm just saying." –Jay Leno

"I have to say, not a great day for President Obama. A new poll shows that President Obama has the lowest approval rating of any first-year president in the history of presidents. Things are so bad today the president said the surge in Afghanistan was all Tiger Woods's idea." –Craig Ferguson
