MRISG – Hackers and Spammers

MRISG

Since the publication of the MRI Staff List 2007 there have been several attempts to hack the MRISG servers.  These have been serious attempts to overcome server security.

There have also been some attempts to hack the administrator login accounts.

Please be aware that none of these attempts have been successful and Dream Host have been informed and are activley investigating the origin and identity of the attacks.  If these hackers are identified Dream Host will refer the matter to the FBI because they clearly breach Federal Law.

HackingIt is also worthy of note that the number of attempts to post spam on the blog has significantly risen.  503 spam messages have been deleted today and 387 users registred on the site who either use know spammer e-mail addresses or come from IP addresses know to be used by spammers.  This increase does not affect the operation of the blog as automated protection is in place to prevent such abuse.

MRISG Members can rest assured that both server security and personal security is taken very seriously.  As a team of highly qualified IT experts maintain this website and forum for you no successful incidents of brute force, SQL Injection, cross site scripting, back door injection, automated injection, remote injection etc… have occurred although it is know that many attempts have been made in the past 3 years.

It does make the MRISG Administrators wonder why the sudden increase of attacks on or around the 3rd year anniversary of this website going live.

I leave that to members to comment.

A SPANISH judge will decide whether football club boss Darragh MacAnthony will face charges after a raft of complaints from disgruntled customers who claim furniture ordered from his firm never arrived.

MacAnthony Realty International (MRI) developed resorts in several countries from its Marbella headquarters and sold furniture packs to clients.

Hugely popular on the holiday market, MRI had hundreds of Irish customers and boasted an annual turnover greater than €100m before the credit crunch.

It made the 35-year-old Dubliner, who now owns Peterborough Football Club, a multi-millionaire.

However, a group of 51 Irish and British buyers claim that €492,000 worth of furniture, ordered more than five years ago for apartments in Morocco, Bulgaria and Cape Verde, was never delivered.

Antonio Flores, the Spanish lawyer acting for the group, claims “many other” MRI customers are affected. He alleges that missing furniture is just one of the irregularities linked to MRI, or related companies.

MRISG Forum Members,
The MRISG Members Only Forum has recently been upgraded and had a firewall added. The new look is cosmetic and all messages and previous functionality remains.
However, members trying to connect to the forum through a Proxy will encounter difficulties.  This has been necessary because you will be aware there have been many attempts to hack the forum by person/s unnamed, so in an attempt to capture the true IP address of those using the Members Only Forum Admin have installed this extra level of security. Most genuine members will not notice any change but those using Proxy Servers will notice a slowing down of use or for serious breaches of protocol a 403 Error will be displayed informing them they have no permission on the forum. Since installing there have been 4 users identified as using Proxy IP addresses and their true IP is logged with the Admin. Those users have been added to a Suspect List and their activity closely monitored.
If you are blocked because you use a corporate network to connect contact MRISG by e-mail – Contact Form for advice on how to remove the problem.

The MRISG Forum Admin work tirelessly to keep your forum safe for genuine users and hope that this upgrade and extra level of security will continue to allow genuine forum members to continue their campaign for justice, un-hindered or harassed by others. Remember that conversation on the forum is private so can not be stifled by fear of being spied on or sited in a court of law. Especially, at this crucial time when certain people are attempting anything to frustrate and prevent this group functioning and trying to disrupt legal action against MacAnthony and his Directors and associates in Spain.

All members and specificity those who are not genuine members are advised to read the Terms and Conditions again and seriously consider if you can afford to be caught out identified and prosecuted for a blatant breach of those very plain Terms and Conditions, copyright breaches and/or Computer Hacking.

Blog Admin have also asked members to also look at all the recent work conducted there for your benefit – www.mri-sg.org. They also ask for any members who have experience in writing media articles suitable for the blog to submit prepared material directly to the MRISG – Contact Page. This will be reviewed and may be published.

All the Web, Blog and Forum Administrators have worked hard for two and a half years to keep your specific plight high on the web and succeeded despite attempts by others, so make the best of the facilities provided free of charge to you the victim and do not let Darragh MacAnthony or his associates get to you because now in the closing stages of his fame and fortune they will try anything to silence you and keep you from seeking justice. Keep Fighting.

Regards,
The MRISG Members Only Forum Team.
