    Hi, i have been in the business of administration for unix and Linux for
    almost ten years now.
    I was my laptop was hacked and in such a way my aide a freee version of
    tripwire was bypassed by a lib which was ld preloaded effecting the file
    system, I was testing WIFI and got my Iptables firewall messedup for a day.

    I believe the attack originated from a #gentoo-sparc channel but i nuked
    all my logs in a hurry to get the system back up.

    I /bin/ps /bin/netstat amung other had bee changed to Immutable and
    md5sums didn't match the ones on record.

    I have most of the hacked system on my nfs server and am bring it backup
    to watch traffic.

    the trojan was sending data to ip address on port 5353
    I cannot find who owns this IP address and it could be a decoy.

    I replaced these to attempt to track down the hackers and the lib
    dissapeared but i still have hacked bonaries /bin/login etc on tape.

    I should have just left it alone so i didnt in advertantly desroy evidence.

    When i asked for help from the second in command at Gentoo Linux i
    received none and the following is what i have so far.

    I and my legal aide cam in as botched and thempth3mp in this conversation.

    with seemant the second in command at gentoo.

    as follows

    Nov 01 13:00:33 <botched> if i ask politely for logs concerning
    conversations with themp from oct-12th through the 29th will gentoo be
    so kind as to supply them ? also, i just need them for this channel.
    Nov 01 13:01:24 <wesolows> botched: It seems Gentoo can't; if you trust
    me, you can have mine, but they're not "official"
    Nov 01 13:02:58 <botched> i would like yours even if not official. if
    indeed the extent of damage is as is vast as we can tell so far a
    subpoena will have to be issued.
    Nov 01 13:03:23 <wesolows> oh dear
    Nov 01 13:03:42 <botched> yes ,this is a very serious issue
    Nov 01 13:03:58 <botched> it is already cost much money
    Nov 01 13:04:01 <wesolows> sorry, I don't want any involvement then
    Nov 01 13:04:15 <wesolows> even as an unofficial helpful provider of
    personal logs
    Nov 01 13:04:20 <botched> wesolows not even to give channel logs ?
    Nov 01 13:04:43 <wesolows> no, I'm sorry, because they could be
    incomplete, and there's no way to know if that's the case.
    Nov 01 13:05:01 <botched> I personally think compiance from gentoo would
    be a good thing for all sides
    Nov 01 13:05:52 <botched> I cant untill i have investegated further, and
    cannot disclose more information at this point in time.
    Nov 01 13:06:02 <seemant> botched: what damage?
    Nov 01 13:06:05 <seemant> and what issue?
    Nov 01 13:06:25 <seemant> and don't you try and threaten people about
    subpoenas and legal action
    Nov 01 13:06:34 <seemant> if there's a problem, I'm the one to talk to
    Nov 01 13:07:31 <seemant> botched: now, if you have something to say,
    talk to me, and leave everyone else in here the HELL ALONE
    Nov 01 13:07:32 <seemant> got me?
    Nov 01 13:07:49 <botched> I would like to discuss this with you but not
    on irc
    Nov 01 13:09:14 <botched> seemant, themp's system was hacked on october
    12th attack originating from an ip which frequests this #gentoo-sparc
    irc channel
    Nov 01 13:10:21 * `Kumba avoids formulating theories and goes to fetch
    screwdriver handle
    Nov 01 13:10:34 <seemant> botched: then you can very well email me
    Nov 01 13:11:07 * xming checking his system for intruders
    Nov 01 13:11:10 <botched> excuse me frequents
    Nov 01 13:11:17 <seemant> botched: and, when you do, I want your full
    name and your full credentials that I can personally verify
    Nov 01 13:11:49 <botched> Seemant i am finished
    Nov 01 13:12:13 * bazik looks at Epidemic
    Nov 01 13:12:38 <seemant> botched: good, and I'll thank you to shut up
    in this channel with the threatening of the people, in the future

    and in private message with seemand second in command at gentoo.

    down hackers do you have some kinda of policy at gentoo against this ?

    Nov 01 14:36:48 --- Received a CTCP VERSION from th3mp
    Nov 01 14:37:21 --- Received a CTCP VERSION from botched
    [seemant has address
    Nov 01 14:39:20 <seemant> you do what you have to do
    Nov 01 14:39:21 <seemant> but
    Nov 01 14:39:33 <seemant> you've been carrying on in completely the
    WRONG way
    Nov 01 14:39:54 <th3mp> okay then how ouwld you like me to carry on i
    cant read your mind
    Nov 01 14:39:55 <seemant> you do NOT come into the channel (a. fucking
    pretending you're someone else) and b. threatening people with subpoenas
    Nov 01 14:40:04 <seemant> carry on with civility
    Nov 01 14:40:09 <seemant> NOT with threats
    Nov 01 14:40:13 <th3mp> i m not doing anything or threatoning anything
    Nov 01 14:40:20 <seemant> right now, all there is is your word that you
    got hacked
    Nov 01 14:40:22 <seemant> no proof
    Nov 01 14:40:34 <seemant> and you come in here with threats about
    calling lawyers and issuing subpoenas
    Nov 01 14:40:45 <seemant> if you have intent to do that, then just do it
    Nov 01 14:40:59 <seemant> don't come in here acting all macho and being
    an ass about it
    Nov 01 14:41:11 <th3mp> my lawyer will be online as soon as i set up a bnc
    Nov 01 14:41:25 <th3mp> if that how you take it seemant that is your
    issue not mine
    Nov 01 14:41:31 <seemant> then let him come online
    Nov 01 14:41:33 <th3mp> i am not being macho
    Nov 01 14:41:39 <seemant> if you wish
    Nov 01 14:41:47 <seemant> I'm done with the convo
    Nov 01 14:42:07 <seemant> if your lawyer needs to contact ANYONE in the
    channel, s/he contacts me first, as I am the one in charge of the channel
    Nov 01 14:42:15 <th3mp> okay seemant why are you so upset anyways ?
    Nov 01 14:42:18 <seemant> and like I told you before, full name and
    verifiable credentials
    Nov 01 14:42:29 <seemant> because I do not like your attitude th3mp
    Nov 01 14:42:32 <seemant> that's why
    Nov 01 14:42:38 <th3mp> seemant you dont make ecurity policies on
    freenode and you dont own gentoo
    Nov 01 14:42:48 <seemant> I own this channel
    Nov 01 14:42:52 <seemant> simple as that
    Nov 01 14:42:56 <th3mp> okay then you own this channel
    Nov 01 14:43:03 <seemant> as far as owning gentoo, I am the second in
    command at gentoo
    Nov 01 14:43:14 <th3mp> thats nice to know
    Nov 01 14:43:45 <seemant> and your box being hacked, is not a freenode
    security policy
    Nov 01 14:43:51 <seemant> it's a "your box" security policy
    Nov 01 14:44:30 <th3mp> not if you dont wish you help by giving
    information anyother distro who owns a channel would gladly give out
    Nov 01 14:44:35 <th3mp> its like you have somthing to hide
    Nov 01 14:44:46 <th3mp> at least thats how it looks to me
    Nov 01 14:44:48 <seemant> as for my developers, I will stand by them
    100%; IF your box got hacked, it was NOT a gentoo developer or a
    representative of gentoo
    Nov 01 14:44:51 <seemant> hahaha
    Nov 01 14:44:52 <seemant> you're funny
    Nov 01 14:45:00 <th3mp> why ?
    Nov 01 14:45:05 <seemant> I'd almost say you're cute, except for the
    fact that you're annoying
    Nov 01 14:45:15 <seemant> if you want co-operation, ask for it NICELY
    Nov 01 14:45:18 <seemant> not with a threat
    Nov 01 14:45:24 <th3mp> why wouldnt you help seems like that would be
    the proper thing to do and the ethical one
    Nov 01 14:45:33 <th3mp> there was no threat
    Nov 01 14:45:34 <seemant> you never asked me for help
    Nov 01 14:45:38 <seemant> not nicely, not any other way
    Nov 01 14:45:46 <seemant> you spouted off about subpoenas straight off
    Nov 01 14:45:53 <seemant> sorry, but that doesn't seem like "asking for
    Nov 01 14:46:01 <th3mp> perhaps, i didnt have the social skils to ask
    you the way you wanted
    Nov 01 14:46:06 <seemant> anyhow, I'm done, and I'm putting you on
    /ignore now
    Nov 01 14:46:17 <th3mp> okay seemant
