this company is a load of crap!

Cyveillance Online Risk Monitoring and Management

I found out about this company from   It's one of the addresses that they send the spam headers to.  So, naturally, since I hate spam, I wanted to find out more about them.  Well, if you go to their website, you will see that they don't actually say what they do, besides "monitor" the internet.  They makes some claims about checking blogs, chat rooms, so on, but anyone with a little knowledge of how the internet works knows this to be false.  There is NO way they can check everything, all the time.  Plus, if they were actually doing some good, wouldn't people hear of them?  I've been on internet since 1990.  I've been dealing with online security since the mid 90's.  I haven't heard of them until I started using (after Blue Frog stupidly gave in to the spammers), so I wanted to see what they are about.

my conclusion?  They are full of themselves.  They get companys to pay them money for, as far as I can tell, stuff that a sys admin should be taking care of.  I mean, come on, if they were actually affective at battling this online crime, why is there more crime happening online now then before?  It's like my stupid ass government.  oh, we have to have a war on drugs.  drugs are bad.  What's that?  Since the war on drugs started, drugs are easier & cheaper to get.  Hello!  You suck!

I mean, sure, I should give them credit for ripping off business for little work, but I can't.  I think it's just plain wrong.
oh, ya, I almost forgot.  On their site, they have some "white papers" and a corporate overview pdf's that you can download.  A total of 8 pdf's to download.  Guess what?  They want you to fill out the same form for every download.  So either they don't want people actually reading everything (like I did), or they just don't know internet & internet users like they are claiming.  After reading the pdf's, they only confirmed what I was thinking, that they are just scamming money off of businesses.

if, you want to read the pdf's without having to fill out the forms, I figured the way around it (like I'm going to fill out the same fucking thing 8 times in a row, I only did it twice), since it was probably someone's kid, or brother-in-law that did the web programing, they of course, left some holes in the system.  Which is funny because it seems like the sort of thing they talk about monitoring against.  While they have the download directory being a virtual directory, so you just can't point the browser to that directory & start downloading, I looked for the best next thing.  What is that?  Well, I just compared the urls from when you clicked on the pdf you wanted to download, and what the url was when you click on submit thingy after you filled the form out.  It ended up that they use the same name for the pdf.  Now, this isn't the same name as what the pdf is called after you download it, which is why the virtual directory way didn't work, but what it does is give you the page after the form with the download link.  cool, eh?

okay, here's what the link is when you click on a pdf to download (and havne't filled a form):

and heres the link after the form:

what do you notice about the links?  yep, that they use the same name to call the download up with.  stupid, because all you have to do now is, on the whitepaper download page ( is place the mouse over the links and see what the end wp_name is.

So, since these are the names:online_pharma, idca, online_threats_fraud, ten_cyber, online_fraud, web_bugs, catch_a_thief, sizing_internet, and corp.
and the link you need to add them to is this:

it makes it very easy.  Now, I'm not sure what the legal status is of me putting the links on my site, but I guess I will, if they don't like it, they can ask me nicely to take them down.  Here's all the links, ready to download.
um, well, maybe not.  Seems that my blogging program isn't working correctly.  it don't matter, you can do the cut & paste yourself.

Be seeing you!

I just don't understand sometimes. Like here on blogger. We can change one of the dates things to a format like this: 20060623 which in my opinion is the best way to do it. Sometimes I will put dashes (-) between the year and month, month and day, but I prefer not too. Why do I like it this way? Easy to keep things that are dated in order thru the dates. Not to mention Europeans have the very retarded way of putting the day of the month before the month. um, sorry, that is so stupid it amazes me. sure, maybe it's in order, day month year. but in a computer list that will put files with the date in front in a non date order.
Since the other common way is month day year, why doesn't everyone just adopt the correct (IMHO) and best (OAIMHO) way? After all, we have computers do most everything. This was there is no confusion for which way the date is written when the day is less the 12? Tell me what day this is: 111206 ?

You give up? European way it's Dec 11, 2006. USA is Nov 12, 2006. that is of course just using a 2 digit number for year, which is rapidly going the way of the dodo.

Since Internet has become a vital part of the world community, you don't know exactly what system something is using, unless it says or is very clear.

Anyways, the point I was starting to make is, under bloggers settings, you can change the date to 20060623 or 2006-06-23 (plus numerious others). But of the 3 different places you can change how the date is displayed, only the first one lets you do it the correct (IMHO) way. So, what you will end up having, is 3 different ways of display the date. Possible 2, but they have a timestamp option that has a few choices with dates & time, but none the match the 20060623 way.
Why? I like google and all, but they seem to be rapidly losing themselves. Sure, they are the "big" company now, they can play hardball with MS (hate MS, they suck so bad). But, that doesn't mean they can start treating they customers like MS does. Doesn't Google have any quality control? Do they use their own software? Seems to me if they used they would see the inconsistancies in the settings option. Though they probably just use the lame standard (and not computer listing friendly) way.

well, i'm done with that.




Sweet! I'm back.

Finally. Some lame ass jacked my blog address a few months ago. Then, they added some javascript so the topbar doesn't show on the sight, so no one could flag the account. Why did that matter? Because the "blog" was actually an ad for some weight loss crap.
So what did I do? Bitched at blogger. A few times. You know how hard it is to get ahold of anyone running this service? I never did. Even though in the help section it clearly states to email the support staff. oh, did I mention that they do NOT have any email address listed? anywhere?

so, I bitched on some of the google groups for the blogger. Also started up another blog about peoples blogs getting jacked. of course, though, I forgot about it like everything else in my life.

At first I got my blog back, but the person still had my address. So I was pissed. Since, it isn't really bloggers fault (well, it is, because they put in a lame flag system, and then don't bother sending you an email when one of your blogs gets flagged) because I was in the hospital for a month and only had email access (well, I could use my phone to web surf, but as $.01 per kb, it does start to add up). So, I started messing with the source on my stolen address's blog. I found the part where they made the toolbar thingy disappear, removed it, then flagged the account. Not know if that would work or not, I started checking out the page that the blog (on my blogs address) basiclly pointed to. it only pointed to it if you bothered to put an email in, and read what you got sent. Thanks to gishpuppy, mailnull, & trashmail for making "fake" email accounts. If you want to sign up for stuff, but don't want to give your email address, I suggest you use one of those sites (,, The first 2 don't expire, but trashmail's expires in 6months, at the latest.
Anyways, I got my account back, under it's correct web address, so I don't have to bother with DDOS'ing the web page belonging to the people who jacked my address. And I went to so much trouble finding zombie computers out there. hmm, maybe I should figure out how to use the zombie computers to, oh, man, that is such a good idea. But it's something I need to think out, don't want to spill the beans before it's ready.
oh, dang, I got to say something. Think about this. Most spam is coming from zombie computers. How about a program that will find the zombies, then install some crap so it will let me know who & what address are connecting to the computer via the zombie port? sure, they might be controlled from other zombies, but all that does is give you more computers to check. What will happen is, after you take out all the zombie addresses, will be that you have other address which might lead back to someone.

Just so you know, I hate spam. but more on that later.

be seeing you!
