Hackers have a lot of tools at their disposal to hack into systems.

Although we are at their mercy we can now fight back against them.

Earlier Norton blocked the following attack -

Category: Intrusion Prevention

2013-08-10 12:35:45,High,An intrusion attempt by www.valleylinks.net was blocked.,Blocked,No Action Required,Web Attack : Malvertisement Website Redirect 2,No Action Required,No Action Required,"www.valleylinks.net (74.53.88.50, 80)","www.valleylinks.net/wordpress_cynthia/wp-includes/js/codepress/images/c508664853/?==wMw1mLulWYt9Vbzx3N5MDM4ITO0MDNwgTOxw3LzUDO0YjN4ATNj9ycldWY tl2LzNXZyBXZk92YvMnavMXZkVHbj5WatA3dvEWaoRnb5N2XzNXZyBHZy92dvQXZu5ycr5WaslXZsxWY25yd3d3LvoDc0RHa8NnZ","USSDAHLGREN (192.168.0.29, 52860)",74.53.88.50 (74.53.88.50),"TCP, www-http"
Network traffic from www.valleylinks.net/wordpress_cynthia/wp-includes/js/codepress/images/c508664853/?==wMw1mLulWYt9Vbzx3N5MDM4ITO0MDNwgTOxw3LzUDO0YjN4ATNj9ycldWYtl2LzNXZ yBXZk92YvMnavMXZkVHbj5WatA3dvEWaoRnb5N2XzNXZyBHZy92dvQXZu5ycr5WaslXZsxWY25yd3d3LvoDc0RHa8NnZ matches the signature of a known attack. The attack was resulted from \DEVICE\HARDDISKVOLUME2\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\INTERNET EXPLORER\IEXPLORE.EXE. To stop being notified for this type of traffic, in the Actions panel, click Stop Notifying Me.

The attack came from this address - 74.53.88.50 TCP, www-http.

Just by posting the information from a blocked attack will allow the sweet spot of the hacker to be exposed. Hackers love information about others to use against them....but they cannot survive when the Guy Fawkes has been ripped from their face.

So basically a way to counter hackers is to post the same type of information above out in the open so that other hackers who love hacking hackers will have the intelligence available to get a free Kill Mail for their collection.

In all seriousness? Don't we have enough professional sites around the net that make this part of their mission to make available?

I think of an ATS Forum with technical information like that as the purpose for every average person to post ..and then consider how many basic facts of science and nature people can't agree on just for the sake of disagreement on something. I can't see how it would be beneficial over top the background noise or even deliberate doctoring of data by nefarious sorts who create some of the problems in the first place? (Not to mention just old fashioned trolling for the apparent boredom factor)
