Proton Mail
« on: July 01, 2014, 09:39:07 pm »
PayPal freezes out NSA-proof, encrypted ProtonMail
http://rt.com/news/169588-paypal-freeze-payments-protonmail/

Developed by scientists both at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), ProtonMail came about as a direct result of the NSA Scandal and the closure of Lavabit in August.

This is an excellent email service. However, for the last couple of days they have been getting DDoSed at a level that makes them believe the attack is state sponsored.

Initially the DDoSers demanded a ransom. But, interestingly (or perhaps stupidly) even after the ransom was paid, the attacks continue, which nonetheless is valuable information. A thug would just cease at this point, because nobody would pay a second time due to them not honoring the agreement in the first place. Paying is often a very unlikely option, and perhaps the people behind the attack counted on them not paying. Basically, the ransom thing seems to have been a cover up.

Protonmail is back up since a day or two. They got some new equipment that seems to beat the DDoSers.

From their twitter:
"I love the feeling of checking my @ProtonMail email now.  It feels like…Victory."

But they say they're still being DDoSed (hardly noticeable though).

Would be interesting to see what kind of botnet they use. Ordinary people's computers, and they don't notice?

a good way of hiding a bot is to make it anti sandboxie etc its very easy.

example
bool detectSandbox(char* exeName, char* user){
     // Used for detecting sandboxes. So far it detects
     // Anubis, CW, Sunbelt, Sandboxie, Norman, WinJail.
     
      char* str = exeName;
      char * pch;
     
     HWND snd;
     
     if( (snd = FindWindow("SandboxieControlWndClass", NULL)) ){
       return true; // Detected Sandboxie.
     } else if( (pch = strstr (str,"sample")) || (user == "andy") || (user == "Andy") ){
       return true; // Detected Anubis sandbox.
     } else if( (exeName == "C:\file.exe") ){
       return true; // Detected Sunbelt sandbox.
     } else if( (user == "currentuser") || (user == "Currentuser") ){
       return true; // Detected Norman Sandbox.
     } else if( (user == "Schmidti") || (user == "schmidti") ){
       return true; // Detected CW Sandbox.
     } else if( (snd = FindWindow("Afx:400000:0", NULL)) ){
       return true; // Detected WinJail Sandbox.
     } else {
       return false;
     }
}
