I think is a bad idea... because if i see a link here, i think is a safe one.. sometimes people dont care about the post content... and just click the link. Or maybe you can open a new topic... maybe im paranoid lol but you have to be careful


The link itself opens to a new page. You have to download the file from the new page and then unzip it to have the bomb go off. Here, to make things easier, just google 42.zip and go to the unforgettable.dk website.

The zip bomb will expand to 4.5 Petabytes.

@blackkats:

I actually had to look up petabyte (even though I suspected it to be 1000 TB), but on the dutch wikipedia page there was this little gem that I'd like to share with you:

Quote:

Een petabyte aan informatie komt ongeveer overeen met:

* Een toren van 1,8 km hoog van gestapelde cd-romschijven zonder doosje


As most of you don't speak dutch, I'll translate:

Quote:

A petabyte of information approximately equals to:

* A tower of stacked cd-rom discs (without box) of 1,8 km high

I sent out the MarkII version to my lad's "barrister", and received the following reply:

Attention: BUCK A. R00BOB

I am so happy with the form you sent to me. I will wait to hear from you as you said by tomorrow to send the fee for their require documents bank demands for your transfer.

As soon as you paid the money through the name I gave you try and send the payment slip through e-mail attachment. I will wait for your update.

@ blackkats: I've been to the page and seen the description of the bad things that happen. How do I package it so that a lad will not be alarmed but will click the "THE BUTTON"?

Edited to add: Does the clicky on the webpage: "Click here to download 42.zip(42.374 bytes zipped)" just download the zipfile or does it set off the bomb? :yikes:

^ Just downloads the file.

Unfortunately the final files are .DLL. So GMail won't let me send them... (or GMail has all wrong. Anyway my mailbox detected it as a .exe and would not send it. Why? Good question!) Anyone had any better luck?

I've just learned about Exabytes - wow, if you thought Petabytes were big, these are chunkier.

Quote:
"As of December 2008[update], the global monthly Internet traffic is estimated to be 5 to 8 exabytes.[2] As of May 2009[update], the size of the internet itself has been roughly estimated to be 500 billion gigabytes, or 500 exabytes.[3]"


Mind you the Zettabytes and Yottabytes make them look dinky.

Lets go for the top figure. Its called a Yotabyte.. 1000000000000000000000000 or 10 to the power of 24. I can't make the 24 smaller than the 1, but ye, its the largest confirmed number in the international system of units. For all you nerds here's the wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yotta-

If i use my zip creator, to make up a 10gig file, if I zip it, then copy the zip, and put them zips into a zip, wonder how many i could get into a 10mb file.. hmm

@re-act: I have had the same problem trying to email similar files through gmail, too. Anyone know how to do it?

Why is it so difficult to receive money from you.I am having a hunch that you are delibrately making it difficult for me.I want you to remember all the problems you have put me through from your first bank transfer to the second one to our London account to this very western Union that you sent more than a week ago. You are putting me through all kind of stress just to receive money from you.

kindly please for God sake re-send it again in a proper way

you are making things so complicated for me...i can no longer condole all this stress you are making me pass through

Your are so honest i like the way you act.

you are playing games with me, but I still want to beleive in you because I have no much choices right now.

Would it not be more useful to create a zip file that contain many many really small files (<1kb). So when the lad unzip it, probably on the desktop, it will create a mess. Or is it off limit ?

Actually, in computing, a kilobyte is 2 to the power of 10 bytes (1024B), and a megabyte is 2 to the power of 20 bytes(1024KB), and so on. A yottabyte is 2 ^ 80 bytes, which is pretty much anyway.

And, back to the original topic, I tried creating a zip-bomb myself, and succeeded greatly - 87,7 MB compressed with 7zip format to only 12,9 KB. If you want to try it too, just get a hex editor (I used KHexEdit but if you don't use Linux you could see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_hex_editors), create a file with a loooong string of zeros, save it, use any name and file extension you want (photographs, documents etc...) and compress it - you have a zip-bomb. Don't be near when it goes off. You'll earn bonus work for your lad if you use some archiving format that is unknown to most casual users and decompressors, like StuffIt or UHarc.

It's wonderful all this talk of peta and yottabytes, but what happens when the lad opens this? If it causes his machine to groan and keel over, then haven't we done the same thing as sending him some malware?

If however, his machine is guaranteed to accept the file and then go about downloading it without collapsing, then you have created a mighty application indeed. This app needs to be tested on some older machines to see what will happen.

A friend of mine's 80gb hard drive is just lying around. Am happy to test it on that if you like, it's pretty old, at least 5years old

There is an invisible boundary. I'd say it's safe if you stay below 500MB and definitely safe if you stay below 100MB (uncompressed). The size doesn't matter - the extra work directed at the lad does. Make it cluttered with small files, if the lad bothers to check whether any of those 100 bitmaps or documents contained the information he wanted, tell him that the file was cOrRuPt and will have to be sent again. Of course, use even weirder modifications and different archiver formats, have him download new decompressors (WinZip didn't work? Try WinAce. That didn't work either? Why don't you get...). You could also waste the lad's money by telling him that registered versions of archivers have the ability to fix corrupt files. It's not about the size of your zip, but how well you use it. Very Happy

@Ophelia: I'm not sure if this is able to do any permanent damage... I guess that as soon as the file fills up all available space during the unzipping (swapfile/-partition as well as all the RAM) an error will occur telling the lad there's not enough space...
Another fun thing might be making a file that exceeds 4 gb. On somewhat older computers (lad internet cafe's?) they might still use FAT32-partitioning (as opposed to the more 'modern' NTFS, that most of us will use by now). FAT32 is a method of information storage (to simplify matters) that allows for max filesizes of 4gb. If the file exceeds that limit it can't be stored, thus rendering the time spent on the (cpuhogging unzipping process) lost.

I have an old Celeron 2 GHz wih 256 MB RAM and an 80 GB HD (might have to double check the HD tho). I am so tempted to try one of the bomb on it. Nobody is using it for at least a year now. Which one should I try first ?

The 42.zip is boring really. It won't unzip everything at once. You need to manually unzip all the files.

I just had an idea. To test whether the zip bomb does any actual damage to a computer in case of a hard drive being filled, download a virtual pc machine and try it. I'd do it myself right away but I'm not at my own baitstation right now. If I manage to get any conclusive results I'll post them here. I'd suggest that the worst case scenario would be that the computer would only boot in safe mode until some hard drive space is released.

The reason there are fake .dll files in there is that an antivirus will scan them when downloaded and unzipped, making the scammer's PC pretty slow. Of course it should have been an auto executable unzip. But then gmail would have flagged it too... I guess Gmail is just too good for our own good.
