[CLOSED] Is RIPE Network Coordination Ctr associated with viruses or hijacking accounts?

Postby malica98 » Sun, 05 Aug 2012, 18:16

I am having problems connecting to my bank sites and I am wondering if there is a security related issue. I went to trace route the domain using my computer and RIPE Network Coordination Center comes up. It actually comes up on any domain I access, but for the banking ones I don't seem to let me access the sites very easily or not at all. I did look up RIPE and there is concern albeit outdated that they do hijack accounts, spam, etc. Although there is a statement on their site that they do not do anything that is not legit. I have run Panda, but it didn't catch anything. I also used Spybot and there was some adware issues. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Thank you for your post.

Based on the information you so kindly provided, it seems that the tracert does not complete. RIPE is a legit IP authority so no concern there.

What I suggest your do, to check whether you have been blacklisted or something, is to lookup the IP of your bank's domain name and do a tracert to the IP rather than the domain name.

Also, you should try another browser.

What communication troubles are you experiencing, btw? e.g. the website does not load or ?

Let us know.

Thank you.

Best regards,
Radko
