Good morninig everyone,
Does anyone have an operations contact at Flash Net? Around 4:30am CST
Sunday morning I was in the office due to a fiber cut and got on IRC to
talk to some of our tech support staff to give them a heads up on the
situation. I ended up running into someone who started using all his
k-r4d skr1ptz and decided to start smurfing, port scanning and trying some
remote expoits. I captured everything and tried to notify flash.net's
NOC, but haven't gotten a response yet. Anyone ever dealt with any sort
of operational issue with this bunch or am I going to have to start
talking to the Feds first? He only did it for a short time, but long
enough that if Flash Net had someone on duty and their contact numbers
in whois were to their NOC instead of their sales office I would have been
able to track this kid down.
Any help is appreciated.
