*Author of original report: Writing All Authorites is Extemenly Important!
We are dealing with organized ripoffs who are targeting ANYONE who happens to surf the Internet. They are specifically targeting children and teens more often than other unknowing individuals. THIS "NOCREDITCARD PORNOGRAPHY CRIMINAL (censored) MUST BE STOPPED! If you cannot verify age with proper ID such as a credit card, then adult sites should not be able to be accessed.
Please file complaints immediately with ALL AUTHORITIES listed in these Rip-Off Reports. If the authorities that govern these matters do not receive complaints, they WILL NOT see the pattern of abuse by this company or TAKE ACTION.
This was a very cleverly planned and executed CRIMINAL (censored). To advertise "nocreditcard pop-up" pornography ads primarily on children/teen sites, self download and install firewall-killers, spyware, trojan worms and dialers, send (censored)bills to owners of the telephone lines. Tina McAlister, Stephanie Toubal, Tina Whitfield, and Joe Doherty are the "Just-Gotta-Make-A-Buck-Off-Some-Victim-At-Any-Cost" kind of people.
The so-called "numerous safeguards" that Detective David Cheek (GCPD) claims are in place to prevent 'unintentional access' to the material provided by Alyon/eGroup NEVER APPEARED on our computer screens. (Read on--Norton Works, doxdesk.com, and spywareguide.com will explain why THEY NEVER APPEARED on our screens.) After reading his report on Alyon Technologies and eGroup, it appears that the state of Georgia condones CRIMINAL acts of Internet (censored), Identity Theft, and Violating COPPA Law.
What about the many INNOCENT GRANDPARENTS who do not own a computer, or have Internet access being sent these (censored)bills? What about the little 85-year-old grandmother who was checking emails from her children/grandchildren when these ripoffs attacked her computer? What about the many DECEASED people who are allegedly visiting this "adult" web site? What about the many victims who have documented proof that NO ONE was home at the alleged time of viewing this 'trash'? What about the CHURCH that was recently billed viewing 'adult content' at 1:30 in the morning? How many more innocent families/people with this company victimize and terrorize before the US Federal Government takes action? IS THIS NOT AMERICA?
In October of 2002, President George W. Bush increased Federal efforts to promote ONLINE SAFETY. "The US Administration is taking aggressive steps to protect children from exploitation and victimization". Someone ABOVE THE LOCAL GWINNETT COUNTY OFFICIALS needs to take aggressive steps to stop Alyon Technologies, before many more INNOCENT FAMILIES fall prey to this criminal (censored).
These ripoffs have ILLEGALLY DOWNLOADED AND INSTALLED items to your computer. Search your computer for 'mini dialer and 'iedisco.exe' and delete them. They have created a folder called 'eGroup'- find and delete it. They have also made changes to your Windows Registry. (See Rip-Off Report #45776 - items found in Windows Registry.) There are many Rip-Off Reports with instructions on finding and deleting Alyon/eGroup's "POP-UP" and "DRIVE-BY" HACKERWARE, (censored)WARE, (censored)WARE, (censored)WARE, FILTHWARE, WE-WANT-THEM-IN-JAIL-WARE. If you cannot manually remove these items, Spybot S&D will find and purge them from your computer.
Norton Works classifies Alyon/eGroup's software as "Nuissanceware and Dialerware that takes advantage of flaws in the computer web browser." And yes, Ms. McAlister, YOUR ITEMS 'elksoftfirewallkiller' 'I-Worm.sobig' 'IEDISCO.EXE' etc. ARE VIRUSES OR TROJAN WORMS!
This is what www.spywareguide.com has to say about Alyon/eGroup and their products:
Electronic Group: Be EXTREMELY careful viewing pages made by these people: many of their pages exploit IE security holes (particularly the Content-Disposition zero-byte-in-extension bug) to insert their certificates into your Trusted Publishers list, allowing THEM TO INSTALL THEIR PROGRAMS AUTOMATICALLY.
E-group uses security holes in Internet Explorer for installing their software. Seems to have a secret relationship with alyon.net (Alyon should be their competitor, but Alyon has it's support pages on egwn.net)
Products by Alyon/eGroup:
Stripplayer and IEAccess/IEAccess2
eGroup Product: Stripplayer
Full Name: StripPlayer Websearch Type: Dialer Also Known as: strip-player StripSetup
Created by: Electronic Group
Danger Level: 3 Level 3: Minimal Threat
May profile users or broadcast data back to a server with ("opt-out") permission. Removal is hard.
Comment: Installed by ActiveX 'DRIVE-BY-DOWNLOAD' on porn related pages WHICH MIGHT BE OPENED BY "POP-UP ADVERTISING". Installation can happen "TOTALLY AUTOMATICALLY" on versions of Internet Explorer older than IE6 Service Pack 1, as a security hole is exploited to add the manufacturers, 'Electronic Group', to the list of publishers you trust, "ALLOWING THEM TO INSTALL ANY SOFTWARE THEY LIKE."
Security Issues: The 'StripSetup' ActiveX control can be used on ANY PAGE, by ANY AUTHOR, to DOWNLOAD AND RUN ANY EXECUTABLE FILE. THERE ARE NO SECURITY CHECKS, WHATSOEVER.
Properties: Stays resident in background
Stealth: hides itself from user
Makes changes to browser settings
Full Name: IEAccess: Websearch Type: Dialer Also Known as: IEAccess2 eGroup
Created by: Electronic Group
Danger Level: 4 Moderate Threat: Level 4
Nearly impossible to remove manually
Comment: Installed by ActiveX "DRIVE-BY-DOWNLOAD" on porn related pages WHICH MIGHT BE "OPENED" or "REDIRECTED TO" by "POP-UP ADVERTISING". May be INSTALLED AUTOMATICALLY, WITHOUT PROMPTING, on Internet Explorer versions earlier than IE6 Service Pack 1, THANKS TO A SECURITY HOLE. The installer pages exploit this to run an EXE which adds 'Electronic Group' to the list of trusted publishers, whose software IE will install AUTOMATICALLY WITHOUT ASKING.
Security Issues: IEAccess adds it manufacturers to the Window Trusted Publisher list. This means ANY web page can make sure ANY SOFTWARE signed by Electronic Group gets installed AUTOMATICALLY WHEN YOU VISIT IT. It is also suspected that it may be possible to use the IEAccess ActiveX control on ANY WEB PAGE to cause an arbitrary unsigned code to be executed.
Stealth: hides itself from user
Makes changes to browser settings
Removal-Spybot S&D update 2002-11-17 and later can remove IEAccess.
