...But them again I maintain a vigilant iBan so it's hardly a shock I'd not run across it before. I had hoped you'd seen something of the nature before.
For the download, it might just be that it looks for an update, and has the messages wrong, e.g. update file 123.exe, no network, file 123.exe is still there, oh well... success!
While it was tempting to give it quarter in that fashion, the timeout just didn't feel right. Way to short to be a web check, and way to long to be an adapter check. Socket timeouts tend to be a real bitch unless you take great paint to slam it shut ... Which is of course in itself a rather odd behavior. Not to mention that getting the messages backwards is a pretty rookie mistake, and there is not a lot of rookies writing hacking tools.

(Um...) *Shrug* Cracking tools are faster and more fun that sitting on hold waiting for tech support to rescue you from yourself.
(But seriously...) I've had really good luck with this type
of tool in the past ... This ones behavior just made me really uneasy about it's true
I did finally get past the rootkit (bootrec /fixmbr) last night and have at least partial control of the shell but the box still has major issues. I just like to play with one of the Uber infested machines now and then to see how long it takes (/if it can be) to get it completely cleaned.
