1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: FSRU on: January 09, 2019, 04:12:37 pm
My understanding is that an FSRU (Floating Storage Re-gasification Unit) functions in the exact same way as an LNG/LPG tanker, only with a final step that converts the liquefied gas back into a gas to be fed into the grid. This final step is usually accomplished by bolting a re-gasification unit on deck, whilst leaving all of the tanker related equipment intact.

In theory you could convert the FSRU back to a tanker fairly easily, probably in a matter of weeks. The biggest issue you'll find will probably not be the LNG/LPG tanker plant, but rather the propulsion machinery.

The Delancey, ex. Delancey Tide, was built in 2010.

Perhaps the OOW, lookout and helmsan were all in the head... Together... At the same time..?

I would bet money on the BNWAS being turned off prior to the collision, too...

Sorry to be the barer of bad news, but the random redirections off-site are back. I was directed to "tizermedias.com" when I attempted to view Davids sticky about forum etiquette. Page loaded half way then redirected, so I guess it's ad related.

Her secret is that she's likely built like a tank. Thick steel, and a strong hull. She was also re-engined in 1992, which likely helped.

Still, an old girl!

Hi all,

There was a javascript link on the site that caused initial problems. There are no threats on the site, and we try to have Malwarebytes to remove the block.

You can remove the block in your software as per the instructions above. If you do - please note that we never want you to click any download links and we never want you to run or give access to something on your computer. These pop-up questions can show up in your browser either if we have a bad advertiser not yet blocked by the ad agency we use, or if your computer is affected by malware already that does not have anything with shipspotting.com to do.

Regards,
Henrik

Henrik,

I appreciate the above, however, I can still access (and download on mobile) "http://shipspotting.com/ smf1/include/Install.exe", which still contains a trojan according to Kaspersky.

I uploaded the above mentioned file to virustotal.com (a batch file scanner, basically runs the file through multiple AVs at once). Over 40 applications picked it up as a trojan.

Could you please explain this, if the site is, as you say, "safe"?

...
I am using Norton that gives me the "not safe"-warning, but I can access the site after the warning without any further problems. Does that mean that Norton has flagged the website internally for ever as "not safe"?
...

I can't answer the rest, but Norton will flag the site as "unsafe" until the webmaster of shipspotting.com cleans the site up, then requests a re-test from Norton. Until the re-test is completed and no issues are found, it will continue to be flagged as dangerous.

Running Ublock origin, and the attached popped up today...

Links to an EXE that seems to be identical to that which I mentioned previously (http://shipspotting.com/ smf1/include/Install.exe). I'm now VERY doubtful this is merely restricted to the ad provider the site uses, but rather a larger issue with the site itself.
SMF doesn't ship with an EXE, no matter the version - Something I know as I run a number of sites running SMF software... So that installer should definitely NOT be there!

The popup links to a file that contains a Trojan, classified as "UDS:Trojan-spy.Win32.SpyEyes.a ". This particular Trojan contains, amoungst other things, a key-logger, a self-installing rootkit to hide it's presence, and the ability to download and install updates pushed from the attacker to the infected machine, without intervention by the end user.
It appears to be designed primarily to help steal login credentials of users, pushing them to the attacker.

Interestingly, the site attempted to download the file from "shipspotting.com/SMF1/include/install.exe" whilst I was editing this post, without a pop-up. Kaspersky total security intervened and prevented the download.

I checked: Norton Safe Web against shipspotting.co
Message to Site Owner, About a Threat (Trojan)

Malwarebytes (premium) in excl. Enter: www.shipspotting.com/ and forum.shipspotting.com/

"
Threat Name:
Trojan.Gen.2
Location:
http://shipspotting.com/ smf1/include/Install.exe
"

I attempted to open the link above (out of curiosity) - The file is still there, but Kaspersky blocks access. Without knowing what "install.exe" actually does, it's difficult to say whether it's a false positive or not.

Perhaps it might be time to consider upgrading to a new version of SMF, seeing as though 1.1.X has now been depreciated by Simple machines? It goes without saying, but if the above isn't a false positive, it's probably time to get in touch with the webhost and ask for a roleback... Oh, and a change of passwords!

Henrik thinks it is connected with a "bad ad" from one of the ad prtners.  He wil try to track it down (not always easy as some ads are country-specific)
It is probably difficult for members to identify, especially if running an ad-blocker.

I use Ublock Origin, and the popup still showed up. As a note however, I've only had it once, and have been unable to make it reappear.

I got the same popup - Links to "printerdriverforwindows.com" or something similar.

What type of tanker? VLCC, chemical, product...
14  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / CAPTCHA issue on: April 03, 2018, 04:34:30 pm
V1 of reCAPTCHA shut down on the 1st of march... Which means the CAPTCHA on the "contact us" form doesn't seem to work. Can we upgrade to the new version?
15  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / Re: Notification when photo edited/moved? on: March 04, 2018, 01:05:12 am
I had two photographs marked for deletion recently (ended up removing them myself). I received no notification for either - As both deletions were going to be for "similar angle to XXX" It'd be nice if I knew without having to refresh "my photos" every five minutes that were was an issue, if only so I could get a bit of notice so I could choose which photograph I wanted to keep on the site, and which I wanted to remove.

I'm not saying it has to create any extra work for the editors - I'm sure the webmaster could write a simple script that'd automatically send a "Your photo of XXX IMO XXX was moved from XXX to XXX by XXX" email/PM to the effected member... The same could be done for an edit (XXX edited the description of your photograph of XXX, located at shipspotting.com/XXX. To view the change(s) click here XXX)

To be clear - I'm not complaining (or attempting to complain) about the fact both pictures were flagged. The angles were indeed similar.
