      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Klez Virus and Friends

Recommended Posts

Sorry for the non-climbing thread, but we've been getting accused of spreading around the virus luvin lately, so I wanted to take a quick second to edumicate all of you 'bout deez viruses that be spreadin round right now:

(if you are a mac owner like jon, you suck, and these don't do shit to your computers so don'tcha worrboudit)

 

KLEZ

Klez is your typical mass mailer worm virus that attacks users of ms outlook and outlook express. It is a very clever virus though, and when it goes to spread its infestation to others via your address book it does the following:

 

-sends out emails that appear to be sent by others in your address book (eg if you had climb@cascadeclimbers.com in your address book, it would send out viruses to others on behalf of Jon and I)

 

-sends out 2 attachments, 1 is the virus, the other is a random document from your hard drive... hope you cleaned off the porn, otherwise your gonna get embarassed.

 

-disquieses the subject, changes from mail to mail, but will often say: congratulations, or Virus warning, or Japanese Lass's sexy pictures or other shit like that

 

Once your computer is infected, it goes in and renders your virus scanning useless by either deleting or renaming Norton and McAfee anti virus files.

 

It will also infect all sorts of programs on your computer that automatically startup when windows runs, so it will re-infect if you somehow clean it off.

 

It is a bitch to remove, but if you think you have it, PM me, don't email me [Razz] , and i'll tell ya how to fix, or you can visit symantec's website to get fixes:

Java Teddy Bear File Hoax

There is also an email going around that tells you to delete a file from your hard drive. This is a hoax and will fuck up your Java install:

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/jdbgmgr.exe.file.hoax.html

 

Thats all. So if you are getting a virus that appears to be from @cascadeclimbers.com, its not us, cuz we're clean!

 

-Tim

I like how tim apologizes for the non-climbing related (but useful) information, but makes no apologies for the puppy porn. [laf]

So as a relatively new person around here, who's more likely to transmit a ctd (computer transmitted disease), Trask or the Captain? (or Larson, Allison, Steamer, or Dru for that matter, though I don't know if enough of our computers speak Canadian well enough to catch it from him....)

They all should have been put under quarantine long ago. Particularly steamer, based on his photo album a few threads back.

It is newbies like you who infect the group, go back to rec.climbing [Razz]

Remember that when you chat with Dru, you're chatting with everybody he's ever chatted with.
