Example Of Attempted Logins To This Site By “Hackers”

List of attempted and blocked logins to this site. Partial only – the actual server lists thousands, likely tens of thousands of blocked attacks. But I figure, why not post this. States username tried, IP address of attacker, and when Bottom 5 entries appear to be an automated attempt or part of a DDoS attack.

WARNING: Telstra Resetting Modems To Default Login

UPDATE AUGUST 3, 2022, 1930 HRS

Well, I’m told it’s a Telstra issue, not a cybersecurity issue. Which it is, technically, but Telstra should not being doing this. Their fix was to perform a reset on the modem and if it happens again, a new modem comes my way.

The issue: it’s not the damn modem causing the problem. It’s Telstra.

ADVICE: Telstra users: CHANGE YOUR MODEM LOGIN PASSWORD. Usually connect to your home network and go to (in a browser) or, and go from there. Don’t let Telstra’s default stick around, don’t let them reset it to default for god knows what reason.


It’s late, I’m tired, but couldn’t get the modem to work – or it would, but I couldn’t log into it without using an ethernet cable.

Turns out they had reset a bunch of settings, and worst by far, the modem configuration password back to the default – accessible from anywhere on the internet.

Telstra F@ST 5355 NBN Modem affected at least – others are simple to crack. Even without logging in, they can be rebooted, shut down, and give out your phone number.

Posting because Telstra have to pick up their damn game.



WARNING: Personals & Dating Sites (Locanto, Escorts, Etc)

It’s come to attention that classifieds sites, personals, dating, and escort sites Australia-wide have been up to some mischief as of late (actually, for years.) This applies to advertisers, and people seeking company on those sites.

Sites in question (some):

  • (scammers, criminal groups robbing men and women, fraudsters)
  • (leaking personal sign up phone numbers to other sites)
  • (scraping and reposting from other sites, often with personal contact info and incorrect info)
  • (as above)
  • (as above)
  • (as above)
  • (as above)


  • DO NOT sign up with your personal phone number at ANY stage. Use a burner phone
  • Watermark photos (subtle enough to not be seen by the naked eye) and remove all EXIF metadata
  • ^^^ There are services we provide.

Should your details be leaked, shared without permission, or image reposted – well, the sites are behind more than just leaking details, people on them are operating in criminal groups (as defined by the NSW Crimes Act 1900 No. 40) to rob both men and women. In Wollongong alone, there have been armed robberies, assaults, wire fraud, alleged kidnappings, and more. No further comment on those matters can be given.

At this point, things are just getting started, but we are aware of this, and so far, some money has been recovered, the sites themselves may put in a token effort to take down an ad, but the sites themselves should worry more about their poor security. Most seem to be affiliated and run from a similar web server, as loosely shown by the image below:


Seen Those Ads From STAGGER on Facebook For Men’s Sexual Performance? The Secret Ingredient Is…

Seen those ads from “Stagger” on Facebook? You know, men’s health, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, etc? Well I looked into it.

Summary: I find it amusing they’re telling your to spray your dick with anaesthetic to treat premature ejaculation – the same stuff they use before stitching up wounds, no less.


First line of treatment for premature ejaculation, is, wait for it – spray the tip of your penis with a local anaesthetic. Yep, along with tadalafil (generic Cialis) tablets on script, I was also prescribed an over-the-counter spray for use for premature ejaculation – containing 9.6% lidocaine (also known as lignocaine or Xylocaine.) Literally, that will just numb your penis and I highly doubt will delay orgasm. Why not go with another anaesthetic – we got bupivacaine, dichloropane, cocaine…. the latter of which yes, you can turn into a spray. No I’m not telling you how, just making a point I found mildly amusing.

Something along the lines of dapoxetine 60mg (very short acting (4.5 hour half-life) SSRI) would be what I would prescribe. Or maybe take the time to enjoy the journey if you have issues…

Spam Calls And SMS – Block Them With The Truecaller App

It’;s a thing. It’s an app. iOS and Android. It’s great. Not only does it identify spammers, scammers, and robocalls, you can configure your phone to use it to ignore these calls. You can report new ones yourself and add to their database. It’s cheap too, monthly, but enough value that I get it cheaper by paying yearly.

It’s also able to find a few extra details – the operator of their phone network, sometimes general location (town for example), email address, sometimes an alias.

Highly recommended, even the free version.

DON’T DO THIS: Don’t Call Friends Asking For Drugs (Or Anything Else Possibly Illegal), It Looks Suspicious

OK, maybe there’s a good reason you need a medication in an emergency. Legitiimate medication, it’s late, or the GP you’ve seen is an asshole who thinks giving you Valium to treat acute alcohol withdrawal (potentially fatal) will turn you into Skinny Pete or Badger (see picture.)

But for the love of god, don’t call up asking anybody for drugs. Don’t text them, snapchat them, it’s looks shady as hell and if I were a police officer, I’d be reading that as intent to supply (10 year maximum sentence in NSW.)

We have apps like Signal if we want to message or talk about things that might be taken the wrong way.


Buying Viagra On Facebook? Companies Like “Pilot”?


So how do they get away with it? I wanted to know – so I put down the $20 deposit and found out.

Conversations, details, that’s coming. But the upshot:

$5.75 per pill from Pilot vs $1.67 per pill from Chemist’s Warehouse (pack of 12 generic 100mg sildenafil citrate tablets.)

These drugs are Schedule 4 (Prescription Only Medication – click here for more info.) Your assessment is an online quiz. At no point do you chat with, digitally or verbally. The takeaway: YOU CAN LIE. They can’t tell, they don’t care. They want money. It’s doctor shopping. Dangerously high blood pressure? Just lie.

Other medications? You can just lie. Under 18? Use your fathers drivers license number + Medicare. ID check = complete. Foolproof, utterly (sarcasm, guys.)

You pay $69.00 AUD for a prescription you do not get yourself, and are sent generic sildenafil citrate tablets (Viagra), 12x 100mg tablets. It costs $20.00 AUD at Chemist’s Warehouse for generics. Pilot tells me it’s because telehealth is not subsidised by the government. Your prescription (that they have) has 5 repeats. Each repeat costs the same $69.00, reasoning being you can consult with your doctor at any time (that last part is my guess.)

Basically, they’re milking you for money.

Imagine if they did this for other S4 drugs – diazepam, lorazepam, clonazepam – that class of drug (benzodiazepines) along with alcohol are the only drugs that can cause death from withdrawal.

Viagra itself, from Pfizer, originally cost around $65.00 AUD for a box of 4x 100mg tablets. Then they failed to hold onto the patent, allowing in generic versions. Viagra was moneymaker. And the guy who created it? Well, he wasn’t on the patent. No royalties. All he was trying to do was create a drug to treat heart disease.

Also, I find it amusing the amount of tracking they like to do of you across the internet (click to see below):

Simple Way To Help Defend Your Website Against Attacks And DDoS

Want to know a simple way to stop your website from being hit by thousands of automated attacks every week? A FREE way.

Ban traffic from China, Hong Kong (aka China) and Russia (mostly China though.)

Some software allows this, some WordPress plugins do, but CloudFlare is my favourite here.

Sometimess you want their traffic, or you need to route internet traffic through their servers, as is the nature of the internet sometimes. So, you don’t block them outright – you instruct CloudFlare to issue them with a challenge (a captcha of varying difficulty.) You then set your server to ban an IP address after a large amount of 404 errors (file not found) in a short space of time.

Here’s a VERY small sample of what I recently had:
