    Hello BHW,

    If you remember me from this thread ( http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...r-how-i-am-infected-complete-damn-survey.html ), you may know I was infected by a hacker and sent him the banhammer at adworkmedia.

    Though I did what I thought was right at the moment, many BHW members felt offended or at least found a way to flame/troll away and neg rep me.

    Time passed and I found myself temp banned for a week.

    This week I thought about all of the non-trolling posts commented in that thread and asked me, why am i on that forum if i was supposed to learn bh im stuff? wasnt supposed bh was meant to be kinda illegal, in a way? And then I asked me, what was the reason I was still on that forum. The answer was simple, I was looking a way to earn cash in a not-so legal way (bh?).

    The reason I opened this thread is to apologized for what I did, I should have not sent him the banhammer and learned from his method. One last reason for opening this thread is that I am also in bh methods (yt+cpa) and leeching adult videos and uploading them.

    Regarding the people that told about the stolen credit cards, CP, stealing in general, I can tell you I have seen that in the "deepnet" forums and I know many other illegal marketplaces. And yes, I could steal CCs but I won't as I want to be as legit as possible (even in the bh realm).

    Regarding how I was infected, I backtracked all of my history on that day I was infected.

    I could have never imagined how i happened:

    1) The "virus" (an actual .bat file) was hidden inside a .png (or jpg, dont remember the format) without triggering an antivirus, even I uploaded it to VTS and found no virus.
    2) It was an ad! It was a rotating banner in one site (i dont know which one as it was a banner), so everyone that saw that ad, was technically infected.
    3) The bat file CANNOT be run from the inside of the image, so, maybe it was Run form a remote site ? a php script?
    4) Idk how the bat file was run but it changed my hosts file without triggering the antiviruses alarm (ive got 3: malwarebytes, nod32 and kaspersky)

    So basically I want to apologise to all who were offended. I could have opened a new account as I said before, but an apology is better to at least show I have balls to accept what I did.

    Thanks BHW, and keep rocking!

    you should be BANHAMMERED right away the reason being you said you can easily create another BHW account which is against the TOS.

    Seems like a lot of schoolgirl drama to me. His writing style is cramped and stilted, like he's got some kind of brain damage. Maybe that's how the "situation" he's apologising for happened? I read these stories and it always seems to me that the scammers have got some really deep psychological issues, and this guy seems to fit the mold. IDK. I have no idea who his or what the dramatic past is all about. But he and his post feel all very wrong. Like some of those hostile responses you read in the ShitList threads, where, if the dumbass would simply own up to the situation and make it right, everything would move forward, but the idiot uses the occasion of him screwing up a deal to express hostility toward the guy he screwed over.

    It's like the classic symptom of the congenital scammer. They bitch and moan about they guy they screwed over, like he somehow is at least partially to blame. A complete failure to take full responsibility for what happened.

    Paralleled here. The mysterious, custom-made "virus" that is to blame for all of it, and the OP is a victim here too. You should feel sorry for him, and forgive him for whatever it was that he really didn't do. He's a victim of soycumstances. Maybe someone should publish an article on "How to make an apology." because so many of them that I read, when you read between the lines, say this:

    1) I'm sorry
    2) But I really didn't do anything.
    3) I say it won't happen again
    4) But since it's not my fault it probably will
    5) Please trust me
    6) So I can do it again.
    7) And then apologise again.

    rinse & repeat.

    I'm still very curious on how exactly it got on your computer, so thanks for trying to figure out how it happened. However, you can't be infected from simply viewing an ad on a site. You also can't hide a file inside of an image, though you can disguise a malicious file as an image. It's starting to sound like you visited a malicious site which auto triggered a download. You then opened this "image" at some point which turned out to be the bat file. Were you looking at wallpapers by any chance?

    I'm not a wizard though, so I could be wrong on some of these points.

    Edit: Alright. Apparently you can put viruses in files.

    Ok... you may have been infected by some virus but if the above is your best guess as to what happened, you need to learn alot more about virus propagation. Virtually none of what you said above makes any real sense - aka, what you described isn't possible. There ARE many ways you can get infected by visiting websites, but not by what you described.

    All that being said - I'm giving you some +rep to give you the benefit of the doubt.

    Thanks for the response,

    Regarding the bat files on an image, I have read many tutorials on how it can be done, just google "hide file in jpg/png"

    It can easily be done, and the ending file is an image file and it opens as normal.

    The problem here is how tha bat file was run.

    I made a simple test on how to "hide/add" an exe file in the image, and when I saw the image in the preview or double-clicked, the image appeared and the exe was not executed.

    Regards

    Running multiple antivirus softwares can actually cause problems because they think each of the others are RATs and therefore stop each other's protection.


    Your apology was going well until this:


    Don't threaten us with breaking the rules! Who do you think you are?

    LOL be careful or else he will come back and haunt us with his new accounts. Why on earth would he even say that he might do this, is he stupid or just wanting the mods to ban him?

    Yes, I understand the technique of hiding information or files within an image - it's called Steganography. Not hard to do with the right tools. I have also heard of flash programs containing virus' - but what you described - an image containing a virus and infecting your computer. Not possible

    BTW - a .bat (batch) file also cannot contain a virus - although it could execute one if there was one on your system to execute. Batch files are nothing more than ASCII files that execute commands.
