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!
