Hi Guys, I hope you can offer some help.

I run a small web design company, we build small sites for local businesses, and have been in business for about a year.

I outsourced some work to an Indian company, and when it was completed, it was evident that the code, the design and pretty much everything they had done was of a really, really poor quality.

I paid them for most of the work, but refused to pay them for the stuff that was obviously rubbish.

Since then they have been attacking our site with email based trojans, as well as all of our clients sites.

Their poor work at the beginning means that we lost alot of money, now the clients that we saved keep having their sites infected, which means that they are very unhappy.

I am struggling to stay in business, does anyone know how I can teach him a lesson?

Perhaps you could send me a private message?

Thanks

Know what you can do.
Why don't you just report them to higher authority?

For them to infect your server with a trojan they need to have access so check out your log files for proof, if you are dead sure that its them then go to the police station and open a case. Else you can try to mail bomb them but its illegal, download HakTek from my site, the link is in my sig. You will just need to use correct email servers. There is also a few Nukes that you can use on there. Hope it helps.

we have been getting lots and lots of emails throiugh the various enquiry forms, that seem like junk, just garbled text etc, could that be the way they are accessing the sites?

By the way, thank you for the advice.

No, they wont access it like that, that I know of.. Why dont you boost up your security, get n linux server and install webmin on that and spam asassin to block them, webmin is free and easy to use, you can even use linux ubuntu desktop version to make things easier for you. Webmin is a very good firewall, Spam Asassin is very good anti spam, Clam AV is very good virus filter. They are all free on linux.
