I was contacted some time ago by someone called Taz Ryder, (facebook page now deleted) he was trying to set up a website about police and was (at one time) trying to get it hosted on our servers.
He sent me a ‘contact number’ if I needed to call him, it was a mobile.
Today, out of the blue he contacted me, sending me the link to his supposed police website, but it is infected.
Strange how a ‘security specialist’ has an infected site, and wanted to put it on our server!
He then told me the number he gave me was receiving spam and accused me of being the cause. Turns out, the number he gave me to call him was, as he called it, an ‘isolated number’, that is, he claims it was dedicated to me for inbound communication to him…
I have never met him, never spoken to him, yet he feels the need to send me a dedicated number. Seems he is trying to track me… lol.
Obviously, I told him to ‘do one‘, and he started telling me he didn’t need a tracking phone to ‘track me’, and referred to me as only a WordPress website owner…haha.
Oddly, he sent me a link to his resume, he was bigging himself up, obviously never research my background.
On his resume, he claims to work for GCHQ, for the government, where it says on their website “We are the UK’s intelligence, security and cyber agency. Our mission is to help keep the country safe.”
I wonder if this is linked to the hack attempts on our website?
As you will see in the COMMENTS below this article, Taz Ryder, who proclaims to be an ethical hacker has initiated a threat of illegal action against this website.
We will start attacking your servers
Your conversation was posted on Hacking News Groups
Ironically, it was posted ‘anonymously’ but from
Virgin Media Limited
The threat came from the IP address 126.96.36.199 which is a Virgin Media static IP address.
Looking at some of our logs, the IP address is attributed to Walsall (in the West Midlands) and Bedford (Bedfordshire).
How coincidental that I have two legal battles against two bellends living in those areas.
The backpedalling begins…
