    Instant messenger could control hacked computers

    17:16 13 October 04 NewScientist.com news service A US computer programmer has created a software robot that uses instant messenger – a program that allows people to exchange messages over the internet in real time - to control a computer remotely.

    So-called “chatterbots” have been created in the past, allowing programmers to use IM to automatically upload files from their computer. But “Nmapbot", created by Virginia-based Abe Usher, is the first that allows someone to scan a remote network for machines that could be hacked into. Nmapbot also allows a hacker to use compromised machines to launch a denial of service attack.

    For yahoo messenger nerds.... Interfaith Dialogues Aug 7, 2004

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
