Hello FD Readers!
With the impressive feedback from issue #1, we were pushed to get
out issue #2. Thanks for all of the great e-mail. By the way, if
any of the good people here can back up our James Lohman issue with
stories of their own, we encourage you to post them here.
ti/infi/infidel when you were his roommate you made several public
comments about him downloading gay porn, and being openly gay in
your presence. We would love to hear your input. Thanks!
Coming Out.. Gay Computer Security Experts Exposed!
Volume #1 Issue #2 - The Digi Digi Ebola!
We decided to investigate the James Lohman aka the Digital Ebola
after a strange incident at Defcon. As you may know about a
hamburger joint near the hotel where Defcon used to be held called
Hambuger Maryâs. Upon realizing this place was a gay restaurant,
of the Defcon regulars stopped patronizing this establishment.
However, it was noticed that the Digital Ebola started going there
more often, sometimes up to five times a day.
Let us step back and give our readers a brief background on this
security professional. James Lohman offers his expertise hacker
services to the public at a reasonable cost. Really anything is
reasonable when you have the skill level this guy has. In fact, we
have a special example for you showcasing his most excellent skills:
Digital Fortress: No Hack Job This
The site supplied for the hack was a friendly and happy place.
White hat hacker James "Digital Ebola" Lohman was kind enough to
volunteer to take a whack at a site we set up at
We'd hoped that he could dig into the Web server, copy out the
of our beloved editor, and replace it with something, umm, more
Perhaps it wasn't a fair test. Whereas many Web sites run on a
system with IIS 5, our test config ran Red Hat 8 with Apache
which is regarded as very secure. Moreover, the box was current on
patches and sat behind a firewall, all of which, in Lohman's
estimation, made it far more hack-proof than the bulk of servers on
Still, the system wasn't a complete brick wall. Lohman used the
popular Nmap open-source scanner to determine the host's services,
OS, and other characteristics. When the system first went live,
the Web service on port 80 was open, which is the ideal
for a box like this. You only want to open the barest essentials.
However, the server went down after a couple of days, and following
a reboot the configuration looked like this:
PORT STATE SERVICE
22/tcp open ssh
80/tcp open http
111/tcp open rpcbind
113/tcp filtered auth
123/tcp filtered ntp
161/tcp filtered snmp
162/tcp filtered snmptrap
443/tcp filtered https
1993/tcp filtered snmp-tcp-port
Discovering this much took Lohman two minutes. The open SSH service
(version 3.4 patch level 1) looked like a possible hack candidate
because every version under 3.7 is known to be vulnerable provided
you have the right code tailored for that system's configuration.
consulted about 100 different resources for suitable existing code
but came up empty. He is confident that he could custom write the
necessary code, but it would likely take two full days of work
provided he built a nearly identical config on which to practice
attacks in order to gain an all-rights account.
While tame compared to most Web site defacements, we'd hoped to
replace our test site's original image with something more racy.
Another day, perhaps.
"After exploiting the SSL (443) vulnerability," says Lohman, "I
be given the rights of the user running the Apache service. If I
could break that, I'd look at your kernel versionbecause I know the
2.4 series kernels have major vulnerabilities I can gain root with.
If the kernel had been patched, I would turn around and start
for every file on the system set for a user ID of root. I would
banging on those and see if there was exploit code available for
of them. If not, I would hit each one individually and start
for possible buffer overflows that could crash that binary and dump
you out as root."
Lohman notes that a secure system today may not be so tomorrow. One
possible attack vector in our machine could be leaving the SSL port
(443) wide open for any hacker to waltz through, except we had it
filtered. However, a poorly executed configuration change in our
filtering or failure of our Linux firewall to start would leave the
box very vulnerable. Additionally, all it takes is one hacker
somewhere in the world to discover a weakness in our software, post
it into a forum or site such as packetstormsecurity.org, and the
site could be hacked within hours. In network security, the word
"safe" does not apply.
Ok, now that we proved he is indeed a security expert it is time to
prove that he is a homosexual gay faggot. Recalling the Hamburger
Mary's incident, we sent our undercover investigative journalist
angie to undernet to find the Digital Ebola. Realizing IRC logs are
not the best evidence, we have included timestamps in case anyone
decides to doubt the legitimacy of these particular logs.
