Has your server been owned?

Do you know what your server is doing when you’re not watching?

The morning mail delivered another phishing attempt. Someone apparently wants to send me money. I should be so lucky!

It was an obvious attempt since I don’t know any Katelyn’s, let alone one who would want to send me money. However, my browser was asking if I wanted to load the images, and that was curious.

Who was gruppoaceto.it I wondered? Were they an Italian anonymous file sharing site?

A little more typing and I learned “Gruppo Aceto” is an Italian automobile dealer.  Could Katelyn be working there?


Reports indicating what your servers are doing are probably already available, but is anyone reviewing them? Keep your systems maintained, but please, please, take a look at your log files every once in a while.
