Automic Posted June 19, 2008 Share Posted June 19, 2008 Hello dear Hak5 community, Today my aunt received an e-mail from her ISP stating that there is being send a great amount of SPAM from their connection. And if they don't fix it within 3 days their connection will be temporarily shut off. They have 2 computers and 1 laptop on the network, all "Wireless" connected. All computers have a viruscanner with the latest definitions and Hitman pro is runned regularly on each of those computers. Also their Wireless router is not secured, they did not even knew that it was possible to secure it. I'm going to her tomorrow, and I'm wondering what could be the cause. I think the cause is other people on her network, since its unsecured and her computers aren't showing any symptons of infection of any kind. I have guided her trough the steps to get in the router and set-up the security, and she could not log on with the default administrator password. And they did not want to touch the router to reset it there afraid to break it... <_< So most likely some wireless leecher changed that password. And thats why I want to know who are leeching her wireless network, before I (ruin their little leeching party) secure it. Any advice on how to see who are on her network (not only the computer name). And any ideas what else might be the cause to this spam? Thank you in advance.
