(2008-01-05) Someone Is Joking Around…

Posted by Jorge on 2008-01-05


I was looking for the SETX tool for Windows 2000 Server and found it on the Microsoft website to download. The URL was kinda strange. Instead of starting with http://www.microsoft.com/ it started with http://thesource.ofallevil.com/.

So I went to both sites and they are exactly the same! Let’s do a NSLOOLKUP….

> www.microsoft.com
Server: …..
Address: …..

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: lb1.www.ms.akadns.net
Addresses: 207.46.19.190
207.46.19.254
207.46.192.254
207.46.193.254

Aliases: www.microsoft.com
toggle.www.ms.akadns.net
g.www.ms.akadns.net

> thesource.ofallevil.com
Server: …..
Address: …..

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: lb1.www.ms.akadns.net
Addresses: 207.46.19.190
207.46.19.254
207.46.193.254
207.46.192.254

Aliases: thesource.ofallevil.com
http://www.microsoft.com
toggle.www.ms.akadns.net
g.www.ms.akadns.net

Do you see the difference?

Is this a Microsoft joke?

Cheers,
Jorge
