|PSA: Furnation.com Security Failures|
Posted by: DarkXander at 05-27-2016 00:45 AM
|I tried to speak with SYSTEM over at furnation tonight, but instead of letting me talk with him about what he needs to fix, he banned me, deleted my posts, and then proceeded to announce on his homepage that he will sue me if """I""" continue to attack him. He seems to be very paranoid about me.... And i have absolutely had it with his readiness to make threats, but unwillingness to listen when someone finds something they need to fix, to the point of banning to shush someone.
Then he denies that i ever tried to report this to him before, when i have screenshots showing him doing the same exact thing on July 3rd 2015, it even shows the posts he tried to hide after the site unfortunatly got minorly defaced:
We even offered them free web hosting when their site went down completely and their host refused to allow them to run it anymore, see this:
This is a copy of an E-Mail sent to furnations two admin email accounts, 5 minutes ago...
In the hope that you read this accounts emails, i will provide your list of Issues, since you have banned me yet again, since you seem completely convinced im the blood idiot attacking you, which i am not.
1. Get the mailserver off your server box, most important issue, the mailserver reveals your ip instantly to anyone who knows how to look. I run my mailserver on a totally independent box on a totally different subnet and ip range, check the headers of this email if you dont believe me.
Setup a mailserver away from the main server, or get a hosted mail solution, or something for your outgoing notifications, thats what i did, thats how FA does it, and i believe even sofurry.
2. Your server is right on the internet, no firewall device or appliance of any kind between it and the internet, GET ONE, or virtualize it in HyperV and setup a PFSENSE, or some other firewall VM and force all traffic to route through that.
3. You have no ip restrictions on your Remote Desktop port, you know, 3389, fix it, or disable it and use a client vpn or some other method of remote that doesnt leave a port open, hell logmein is more secure....
4. This is the old issue that i believe plagued you in the past, no protection or limit on stage 3 hung syn connections, but it wouldnt exist if you had any decent firewall, even a cheap used sonicwall would solve this, ebay one, or ask OVH what options they have available, GET SOMETHING SOON!
I have sent items 1 and 4 to you several times before, i dont recall if i noted 2, and 3 previously, but fix them regardless.
And quit making up stories about me being the one that hacked you, or that im some evil person that has a vendetta or something, im a 24 time certified Cyber Security and Network Engineer, Your just lucky whatever moron does have a vendetta apparently isnt too bright on this stuff.
I should never see this stuff again, if i can, the hackers that are after you can too!
Windows Server 2012 R2 x64
IIS 8.5 with HTTPAPI
And quit making threats about legal action, and worry more about the legal action you might find yourself in if all your users private information got leaked due to your security issues like FAs possibly was just a few days ago.
This article will stay up untill they acknowledge that they plan to fix these issues!

|Spotlight: Furry Virtual Universe Project|
Posted by: DarkXander at 05-07-2016 18:00 PM
|FurrTrax has the server power, and is looking to setup our own Virtual world using opensim.
This is something we are looking to collaboratively manage, and we are willing to host regions for other sites as well, and set them up togeather in a grid of furry dedicated areas. As if a version of Second Life dedicated to the furry fandom, where furrys make the rules. And the biggest thing would be, everyone would get free space as long as they could justify its purpose and usage. No more need to pay $1000 for a full featured area of your own.
For those who would wish to host their own region we would also accomidate that, and allow their region to be linked in with ours.
We are looking to first assemble a list of those who would be willing to collaborate on management aspects, creation of starting content for the base regions, and those who want to contribute in other ways.
We have ~200 GB of RAM, and 32 i7 xeon processor cores at our will to do this with, and Tons of SSD storage.

|Spotlight: FurrTrax is to be sold.|
Posted by: DarkXander at 04-01-2016 08:42 AM
|Xander has decided to sell FurrTrax to raise money for his Racing Career for an undisclosed amount. The new owner will be Uncle Kage himself as that is the only person Xander would trust to keep the site ethical and justly run. Xander wishes you all the best, and adds that you probably shouldnt visit Arizona anytime soon because he just sold his entire gun collection to Kovu, and we all know how much Kovu likes to shoot!

|IM System Update|
Posted by: DarkXander at 03-13-2016 23:07 PM
|Soon we will implement caps on instant messaging history now that the system is fully operational, basically the plan is, any IM data older than 5 days will be scrubbed, unless its unread, in which case it will be scrubbed after 15 days. This is to save server space and capacity for growth and the future. So dont expect your IM history to roll forever, copy and paste it out if you want to keep it.
|PSA: Kryslin has been Banned, Potential Law Enforcement Implications|
Posted by: DarkXander at 03-10-2016 12:32 PM
|It really bothers me that i have to post this, it has brought down my overall morale to discover such acts were occuring from a member of my site, that said i am required to take steps in due dilligence to make sure this is handled properly.
user Kryslin, aka Grayhuskie, has been Permanently Banned from the site, for the following reasons:
Sexual Harrassment of multiple women on the site.
Continued Harrassment and Reprisal against those who reported his actions to management.
Falsifying Statements to admins regarding the investigation.
Claiming to be able to Circumvent Site Security in PMs to other members, causing them to fear for the security of their private information.
Manipulating and Guilting members into Sexual Situations, sometimes by convincing them he was suicidal.
Attempting to start a relationship with an Admin to gain favor/manipulate the admin team.
Directly Threatening Several members who declined to do what he demanded of them in RPs and Chats.
Manipulation by Degradation of members he saw were vulnerable to it for the purpose of self-enjoyment.
Probably a lot more.....
I am quite literally shocked by the screenshots and Private Messages ive audited. And honestly disgusted.
If any of the members who were victims to this persons actions are planning legal action, you need to notify me as i have exported all the evidence to a case file i can submit if i receive a request(court order or subpoena) for such documents.
This is a sad day for FurrTrax.

|Xander is Recovering from Surgery|
Posted by: DarkXander at 02-27-2016 15:14 PM
|On Sunday while in the emergency room for extreme chest and abdominal pain, It was decided by physicians that emergency surgery was needed in the form of Gall bladder removal due to the lodging of a gall stone in one of the ducts of the organ which. After surgery it was noted that a total of 7 stones were found in the Gall Bladder and that 2 of them had caused obstructions within the organs ducts. The Surgery went well and lasted 2.5 hours with only 1 complication of which was at one point Xander awoke from the anesthesia durring the surgery. The doctors denied this happenned, but Xander was able to describe the OR room and the doctor had no rebuttal and exitted the room upon hearing this with a nervous expression. Xander had forewarned the nurses and anesthesiologist that he had a resistance to anesthetic drugs and that this might happen. Xander is currently recovering and transfered home on Tuesday the 23rd in the afternoon.

|Spotlight: Downtime Tonight but only a little.|
Posted by: DarkXander at 02-19-2016 19:13 PM
|We will have a short down time tonight while i add 6 x 8GB sticks of ram to the main server. Should be an hour or so from the time this news item was posted.
|New MailServer - The BlueHost Aftermath|
Posted by: DarkXander at 02-19-2016 09:53 AM
|Well, the short version is we have a brand new, much better mail server than the crap bluehost provided. Our new mailserver even supports ActiveSync so you can use it as an Exchange Mail account.
Our new mail system also supports better security features including DKIM, TLS SSL, SPF, and better filtering. The interface is identical however so no learning curve.
The caveat is all users E-Mail passwords have been reset, send me a new password via PM and i will assign it. Then you can login and change it yourself.
|PSA: FurrTrax E-Mail Hosting|
Posted by: DarkXander at 02-17-2016 12:18 PM
|Due to the fact that Bluehost cannot keep our E-Mail Server working properly no matter how hard they try it seems, We will be moving our mail hosting elsewhere. For those who have FurrTrax mail accounts from donating, you will need to PM me new passwords for your E-Mail accounts on the new system to be setup with. The new system will also allow you to Reset your password anytime you want which bluehost did not allow. The cutover will occur sometime later today but your accounts on bluehost will still be reachable after that, the login url will just change, and no new mail will go to there as we are retaining the bluehost server still for CDN usage.
|FurrTrax Upgrades Again!|
Posted by: DarkXander at 02-11-2016 13:20 PM
|In the interest of our main server retaining its name as a true Spartan, i caught another deal on RAM for it, 6 x 8GB Sticks of DDR3 Fully Buffered and Registered ECC RAM for 100 bucks, which is 50 cheaper than even amazons used stock can get it for on identical part numbers. This will fill up our slots, and give us a grand total of 144 GB of RAM. All these peeps with Low Orbit Ion Canons can tremble now because we have the Furry Death Star.
