I apologize for making a big deal out of this. But to me, this is a big deal. I found your actions very threatening. And even days later I have actually lost sleep over it and been in a relatively bad mood because of it.
Furthermore, below you stated I posted a URL. That URL was to a geocities.com site. That site has nothing to do with PHP and has nothing to do with my local computer. In fact, that geocities.com site only showed screenshots of what I had been working on. Obviously, it must have sparked your interest because you went to work on finding out my IP Address so that you could break into my system.
I am not a hacker. I do not try to hack and don't know how people go about doing it. I'm a programmer. To me, those two are very different. A programmer is constructive. A programmer likes to take a problem and turn it into a solution. A programmer is creative. A programmer has respect for other people's domains and boundaries. A hacker is destructuve. A hacker takes a solution and turns it into a problem. A hacker has no respect for other people's domain or boundaries. As you have clearly done. You have overstepped a boundary with me.
I did not know someone would come snooping up my IP Address to break into my site. I did not know it was even possible. The need to go into my database and add your username, etc. was uncalled for. Furthermore, you did not stop there. You also went into my FTP site (which was empty) and my SMTP server (which was empty) adding folders, etc. I have full logs of your activity. You did this day after day for almost five days, sir. I find that uncalled for.
If you have copies of any of my files I suggest you delete them immediately. I have Intellectual Property rights to these files and will prosecute you if I find out you have used them to any means.
Again, I'm sorry for making a big deal out of this. But it is a big deal. You have threatened me in a very personal way.
End of Thread.

Ok, I just checked my mail and found this thread... to clear this up...
In one of your posts you posed a url to a script you were working on...and I backed up a directory and it gave me a directory listing...one folder was /admin/ it gave another listing...then showed phpMyAdmin and then it gave your full db schema...no passwords or anything...i was able to insert a record...and a user to your mysql server... password is (abc123) that's all i did...nothing else...and i'd hardly consider that a hack...more of a "browse"
Cheers, -Jonathan aka: "Codeboy the *dangerous* hacker"
True, but none of which are applicable to
me, as I've not
or spoofed anything or anyone. As far as
hacking is concerned,
know my arse from my elbow :)
just a fyi, my post had nothing to do with you. or the other james (which that line you're referring too had to do with) but rather, that of the person in question ("hacker"). but anyway, let's let this thread die. it's time.
