Chad Everett Harris., Whinstone, Porn Spammer?

by | May 14, 2021 | Find the Fraud, Opinions

We believe that Chad Harris, Chad Everett Harris, Chad Everett H., Riot Blockchain, CEO at Whinstone US, hacked into our site Digital Arteries and into the site of one of our contributors for the purpose of sending spam comprised of email advertising child porn, bestiality, gambling, and worse.

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.

During the time of the hack about 50 other businesses were taken off line causing economic damage to each.  If we’re correct, Chad Harris used the domain name and the good name of the contributor to spread evil to unsuspecting people around the world.

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 or after. In fact, the hacked site of the guest contributor was seldom visited by anyone and would go days without visitors — until Chad Harris, alone, or with others, figured out who the guest contributor is and found his personal site. Then it was hacked.  Followed soon after by Digital Arteries.

2 breeches from Metairie IP: 70.196.148.138. 1 breech from Kenner IP: 108.196.213.154.  Chad Harris was located in Metairie at the time and Kenner is the next town over.

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.

Are we correct in our perception? Does it look to you like that Chad Harris, The Garden Gates, acting alone, or in concert with others, hacked into Digital Arteries and into the site of one of our contributors?
