CHAD HARRIS, THE GARDEN GATES, PORN SPAMMER?

CHAD HARRIS, THE GARDEN GATES, PORN SPAMMER?

DID CHAD HARRIS A PARTNER IN THE GARDEN GATES AND RELISH NEW ORLEANS HACK INTO WEBSITES AND SEND PORN SPAM FOR MONEY? CHAD HARRIS, SELF-STYLED ENTREPRENEUR, AND CONTENT CREATOR, IS A PORN SPAMMER?

We believe that Chad Harris, The Garden Gates, The Garden Gates, The Garden Gates Online, The Garden Gates Reviews, Relish New Orleans, and The Garden Gates Online Reviews, acting alone, or in concert with others, including but not limited to spam organizations located in St. Petersburg and Nizhniy Novgorod, Russia, hacked into Digital Arteries and into the personal site of one of our contributors.

It is our contention that Chad Harris is responsible for sending spam comprised of email advertising child porn, bestiality, gambling, and worse from the Digital Arteries domain name and the domain name of the contributor — causing great damage to Digital Arteries and the contributor.

During the time of the hack about 50 other businesses were taken off line causing economic damage to each. We have time/date stamps and IP/street addresses from the night the malicious crime was committed.

The 2 sites referenced here were down 6 days.  Tremendous damage was done to Digital Arteries and the reputation of our guest contributor.

Our hosting company and the security organization we use have confirmed the following:

  • The hack happened late in the day February 2, 2017 or early in the morning February, 3, 2017.
  • The 1st hack was into THE SITE OF GUEST CONTRIBUTOR
  • Malicious PHP code was placed on every page.
  • The site began sending about 4000 spam a minute from THE SITE OF GUEST CONTRIBUTOR.
  • There were about 200,000 bounce backs — which gives us an idea of the volume sent.
  • Shortly after THE SITE OF GUEST CONTRIBUTOR was hacked, DIGITAL ARTERIES was hacked.
  • The sites were down from February 3, 2017 – February 9, 2017.

This article does not contain facts.  This is about The Garden Gates retail store that closed because of a lease dispute.  It is well known what took place.

As for the canceling of contracts, yes that business closed in August 2015.  The online business was and has always been a complete and separate business.

*** Chad Harris sent an after-hours email making a request but before we could take any action in response the site of the guest contributor and Digital Arteries was hacked into. The logs indicate the IP addresses below. In the many years the sites were active we can find no evidence that anyone from these IP addresses visited the sites before the hacking episode. In fact, the hacked personal site of the guest contributor was only visited by friends and family. The site would go days without visitors.  Digital Arteries and the site of the guest contributor were hacked during the same time frame.

2 breeches from Metairie IP: 70.196.148.138. 1 breech from Kenner IP: 108.196.213.154

For the record, Mr. Harris has his business in Metairie LA and lives in New Orleans, LA,  Kenner is located close to Metairie.

To be clear: the site of the contributor, the 1st site to be hacked, saw maybe 10-20 human visitors a year. It is not a site he publicized or pushed into public awareness. During the time period of the hack, the site was hit by Metairie and Kenner IP address 3 times. Each visit hit the same obscure back door page.

I visited your website on the day I sent you an email, that is truth.  I did not hack your site, that is truth. I would not hack a site because that is bad Karma…

*** Chad Harris failed to mention that he not only visited the site the day of the hack, he visited it while the hack was active.  The hacker always went to the same backdoor page whether it be from Metairie or from Kenner.

The hacking could’ve been instigated and accomplished in a number of well publicized ways. All easily discoverable on hacker forums or with keyword based searches in Google.

From the legal perspective — “Obviously, any time a person hacks into a computer and steals information or uses it to commit a crime, that person can be prosecuted in state or federal court. Some laws also specifically target hacking. For example, the federal government has enacted the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA). Many states have enacted their own counterparts to the CFAA. Under the CFAA, it is a crime to:
• access or transmit government secrets, including any information pertaining to national security
• access a government computer without authorization
• access financial information on a computer without permission
• access a “protected computer” (almost any computer used in government or business) without permission and with the intent to commit fraud causing losses of more than $5,000, or enter into any computer system and cause damage or loss to the system.

Convictions for violating the CFAA can result in federal prison terms of up to five or ten years, or longer, as well as fines. The victims of computer hacking can also sue in civil court for damages (money). Punishment varies for violations of state law.”

Are we correct in our perception? Does it look to you like Chad Harris, The Garden Gate, acting alone, or in concert with others, hacked into Digital Arteries and into the site of one of our contributors? We have other evidence we’d prefer not to share at this time.
