Next Hike

The next hike will be on Saturday, 7th December.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am

There are two different ways of getting to the viewpoint on Thompson Bluffs.  One route starts from First Lake on Bell Road and runs entirely through forest along very old logging roads and narrow winding trails and passing Mystery Lake along the way.  The other route, the one we used last Saturday, starts from a parking spot on the logging road running uphill from Eagle Creek on the Davie Bay Road to join Thompson Road some way north of the bluffs. It felt rather cool when we started walking, but on this route there is a good deal of elevation gain so we were all nicely warmed up by the time we reached the lunch spot.

Next Hike

The next hike will be on Saturday, 30th November.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.

Last week we decided to explore some more of an old and quite overgrown logging road in the area to the south of Black Mountain.  It starts from a crossroad near the big beaver pond we call Blown-up Trailer Lake and heads downhill through the forest along the small creek that exits from the beaver dam.  We followed it for a short distance until it became so overgrown it was difficult to follow.  As we could see a very small bluff ahead we stopped there for lunch, and as we ate we wondered what the view might be like if the fog we were in could clear enough to let us see. It never did. 
 While the thick fog prevented us from seeing a distant view it also created this oddball scene in my photo of the week.  A young forest was drowned and the trees died soon after some beavers decided to dam the small creek and create a new pond - because that's what beaver do.

Security Notice. Someone have access to your system.

Hello!

I have very bad news for you.
11/08/2019 - on this day I hacked your OS and got full access to your account gilliesbayca.hikes@blogger.com.

So, you can change the password, yes.. But my malware intercepts it every time.

How I made it:
In the software of the router, through which you went online, was a vulnerability.
I just hacked this router and placed my malicious code on it.
When you went online, my trojan was installed on the OS of your device.

After that, I made a full dump of your disk (I have all your address book, history of viewing sites, all files, phone numbers and addresses of all your contacts).

A month ago, I wanted to lock your device and ask for a not big amount of btc to unlock.
But I looked at the sites that you regularly visit, and I was shocked by what I saw!!!
I'm talk you about sites for adults.

I want to say - you are a BIG pervert. Your fantasy is shifted far away from the normal course!

And I got an idea....
I made a screenshot of the adult sites where you have fun (do you understand what it is about, huh?).
After that, I made a screenshot of your joys (using the camera of your device) and glued them together.
Turned out amazing! You are so spectacular!

I'm know that you would not like to show these screenshots to your friends, relatives or colleagues.
I think $938 is a very, very small amount for my silence.
Besides, I have been spying on you for so long, having spent a lot of time!

Pay ONLY in Bitcoins!
My BTC wallet: 1PgnnLkZfG4NuSU6aTK2xtJWwg9nzuCM1A

You do not know how to use bitcoins?
Enter a query in any search engine: "how to replenish btc wallet".
It's extremely easy

For this payment I give you two days (48 hours).
As soon as this letter is opened, the timer will work.

After payment, my virus and dirty screenshots with your enjoys will be self-destruct automatically.
If I do not receive from you the specified amount, then your device will be locked, and all your contacts will receive a screenshots with your "enjoys".

I hope you understand your situation.
- Do not try to find and destroy my virus! (All your data, files and screenshots is already uploaded to a remote server)
- Do not try to contact me (this is not possible, the sender is randomized automatically)
- Various security services will not help you; formatting a disk or destroying a device will not help, since your data is already on a remote server.

P.S. You are not my single victim. so, I guarantee you that I will not disturb you again after payment!
This is the word of honor hacker.

I also ask you to regularly update your antiviruses in the future. This way you will no longer fall into a similar situation.

Do not hold evil! I just do my job.
Good luck.

Security Notice. gilliesbayca.hikes@blogger.com was hacked! Change your password now!

Dear user of blogger.com!

I am a spyware software developer.
Your account has been hacked by me in the summer of 2019.

The hacking was carried out using a hardware vulnerability through which you went online (Cisco router, vulnerability CVE-2019-12643).

I went around the security system in the router, installed an exploit there.
When you went online, my exploit downloaded my malicious code (rootkit) to your device.
This is driver software, I constantly updated it, so your antivirus is silent all time.

Since then I have been following you (I can connect to your device via the VNC protocol).
That is, I can see absolutely everything that you do, view and download your files and any data to yourself.
I also have access to the camera on your device, and I periodically take photos and videos with you.

At the moment, I have harvested a solid dirt... on you...
I saved all your email and chats from your messangers. I also saved the entire history of the sites you visit.

I note that it is useless to change the passwords. My malware update passwords from your accounts every times.

I know what you like hard funs (adult sites).
Oh, yes .. I'm know your secret life, which you are hiding from everyone.
Oh my God, what are your like... I saw THIS ... Oh, you dirty naughty person ... :)

I took photos and videos of your most passionate funs with adult content, and synchronized them in real time with the image of your camera.
Believe it turned out very high quality!

So, to the business!
I'm sure you don't want to show these files and visiting history to all your contacts.

Transfer $987 to my Bitcoin cryptocurrency wallet: 1CDKLgab6xUnAwP5q5x3jdDy8978Bt2iCZ
Just copy and paste the wallet number when transferring.
If you do not know how to do this - ask Google.

My system automatically recognizes the translation.
As soon as the specified amount is received, all your data will be destroyed from my server, and the rootkit will be automatically removed from your system.
Do not worry, I really will delete everything, since I am 'working' with many people who have fallen into your position.
You will only have to inform your provider about the vulnerabilities in the router so that other hackers will not use it.

Since opening this letter you have 48 hours.
If funds not will be received, after the specified time has elapsed, the disk of your device will be formatted,
and from my server will automatically send email and sms to all your contacts with compromising material.

P.S. Do not try to contact me (this is impossible, sender's address was randomly generated).

I advise you to remain prudent and not engage in nonsense (all files on my server).

Good luck!

Next Hike

The next hike will be on Saturday, 23rd November.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.

Last week we decided to head back to the area of Four Square Lakes, but this time hiking in the forest on the east side of Anderson Bay Road. Some of the Trekkers have been exploring and trail blazing this area in recent days and I wanted to revisit a couple of lakes I had discovered just a few years ago.  It was not a particularly good day for hiking on this part high elevation part of the island which was shrouded in dense and very damp fog, cool and often slippery underfoot.  Next time we hike there we will choose a warm sunny day, but the picture of the lake which looks like a boot on the map, shows just how beautiful it can be even when the weather is not that great.

Next Hike

The next hike will be on Saturday, 16th November.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.

Last week we were a bit unlucky with the weather as it was dull and cloudy and looked like it could begin to rain at any time.  Lucky for us that the rain held off until the hike was over and we were headed back home!  We may not be so lucky this week, but November is usually the wettest month of the year so we can expect more rain before the end of the month.  One thing that the moisture does encourage is the growth of edible mushrooms an interested hikers were rewarded last week. To avoid the activities of the hunters that were extra abundant last Saturday, a long weekend, we drove south to the Cook Bay gate and then hiked down the old logging road that goes to the house at the very southern end of Shingle Beach.  It was too cool in the wind to sit on top of the seaside bluff where we usually eat lunch, but the low cliff that gave us wind protection also gave me the subject of my photo this week.  I remember noticing these oddly shaped grey lichen many years ago and wondering why they have taken these very odd shapes in this particular location.
