This is more of an Internet problem than networking, but hell, the internet is just one big network anyway right.........in any case, I have been using IRC for years now. Well, one day I tried to log on like normal and it gives me this Akill for [exp/ma] B.S. Followed by instructions on how to fix it.
The instructions say this exactly:
"-tiscali.uk.eu.dal.net- *** Autokilled for [exp/ma] The ident you are using is commonly used by exploited mass advertising hosts. For instructions on changing your ident go to http://kline.dal.net/exploits/
[AKILL ID:995114351K-a] (2002/05/03 15.00)"
So I went to the web page, it said this Type of Akill is often caused by trojan viruses, and that I needed to download this software to find and fix it. So I did, it found nothing. Since then I have; for other reasons; re-partitioned and re-formatted my hard drive. THen re-installed a fresh copy of Windows XP. It still says the same thing(I figured it would).
It also says to email firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information. So I did. And no response for, going on 2 weeks now. Does anyone have any idea why this happend or how I can fix it?
Any help/suggestions is greatly appreciated......
