Fighting Hackers on MSN Chatrooms
Posted on 2001-06-24
I desperately need someones help! For the last 9 months I have been running !!!! Advice Room for Teens in the MSN Chat Rooms, We have a team of 12 Hosts and deal with about 300 teen guests and their problems a week. Three times last week we have been attacked by hackers with 'bots' which flood the room with up to 30 multiple copies of themselves flooding the screen with messages and making the room impossible to run for hours at a time.
They use a loophole in MSN software that enables them to create eg Guest_2D-D12 etc
Question 1: How do they introduce their code to run in the Chat rooms?
Question 2: Anyone here clever enough and willing to write an anti-hacker 'bot'?
Meanwhile a lot of desperate teens are not gettin any help
