what's more stupid? a bunch of l33+ defcon security conference
attendees too stupid to read a distribution list before sending
sentive information or stupid rantings about big bad capitalistic
corporations?

Hello,

Some friends and I were putting together a contact list for the
folks
attending the Defcon conference this year in Las Vegas. My friend
sent
out an email, with a large CC list, asking people to respond if
they
planned on attending. The email was addressed to quite a few
people, with
one of them being David Maynor. Unfortunately, his old SecureWorks
address was used, not his current address with ErrattaSec.

Since one of the messages sent to the group contained a URL to
our
phone
numbers and names, I got paranoid and decided to determine whether
SecureWorks was still reading email addressed to David Maynor. I
sent an
email to David's old SecureWorks address, with a subject line
promising
0-day, and a link to a non-public URL on the metasploit.com web
server
(via SSL). Twelve hours later, someone from a Comcast cable modem
in
Atlanta tried to access the link, and this someone was
(confirmed) not
David. SecureWorks is based in Atlanta. All times are CDT.

I sent the following message last night at 7:02pm.

Approximately 12 hours later, the following request shows up in
my
Apache
log file. It looks like someone at SecureWorks is reading email
addressed
to David and tried to access the link I sent:

71.59.27.152 - - [05/Jun/2007:19:16:42 -0500] "GET /maynor.tar.gz
HTTP/1.1" 404 211 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X;
en)
AppleWebKit/419 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/419.3"

This address resolves to:
c-71-59-27-152.hsd1.ga.comcast.net

The whois information is just the standard Comcast block
boilerplate.

Is this illegal? I could see reading email addressed to him being

within
the bounds of the law, but it seems like trying to download the
"0day"
link crosses the line.

Illegal or not, this is still pretty damned shady.

Bastards.
