Trojan Horse Reward

REWARD OFFERED FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO ARREST AND CONVICTION OF TROJAN HORSE AUTHOR

The MAUG Staff on CompuServe discovered an upload called CHINAT.CPT which, when we routinely examined the file, revealed itself to be a Trojan Horse program. The program, "Chinatalk," purports to be a female voice for Macintalk. But when run it will overwrite the directory of any hard disk it finds online, which is the same as choosing Erase Disk... from the Finder.

The file was never made public here, on ZiffNet/Mac or on any CompuServe Forum.

All sysops of private BBS services should be on the lookout for this file.

If anyone has information on the perpetrator of this Trojan Horse program please contact me - Neil Shapiro - via either email or phone at 516/735-6924.

On behalf of MAUG, I am personally posting a $500.00 reward for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of this criminal. (Should more than one person supply identical information the reward will be to the first giving the information; or if two or more people give information which is both non-identical and necessary to catching the criminal the reward will be equally split between the parties.) Let's catch this pond scum and let's do it quickly!

Again: the file was NEVER made public here, on ZiffNet/Mac, or on any other CompuServe Forum. Thanks, -- Neil Shapiro (Chief Sysop, MAUG)
