Just what is btcentralplus.com

We receive a lot of abuse from this domain and a lot of webmasters are blocking it.
But since the domain has no website it was not clear what it was.
After a long search I have discovered that its British Telecom DSL.
See DSL report page. This was the only site that told what it was.

Why the lame tecs at BT dont have a website at that domain is confusing because not knowing what it is is getting BT customers globaly banned.

btcentralplus.com should not be banned as it is a ISP
It is not clear yet if dsl modems keep the same IP so we have to ban by IP until we know.

To the folks at BT Please put a website at www.btcentralplus.com

I received lot of useless e-mail , by looking at the header they come from
host81-151-187-58.range81-151.btcentralplus.com, thus someone from BT

If this is all happening, it seriously means that their security is terrible. And yes, an ISP can have such poor security that people can abuse it and use people's computers to do nasty things.

Full of fail.

Sandro said...

this is true; also here in the beautiful USA, we have people who start weak isp's aka private isp that start up with very weak security

My computer is hacked by someone who uses one of these ip's:

86.156.100.212
81.155.221.248
86.160.126.220

They all seem to come from btcentralplus.com

I know the person who hacked me from different forums. His nickname is: Regain.

If someone knows anything about him tell me please.

I had to users join my irc network with btcentral as their host name, at first I thought they were the same user connecting through a shell or something. However I am not certain now. But I imagine they host bnc shells, which to my knowledge are only used to circumvent the security of IRC networks. Well that's my two cents.

Oh here's the info if it helps:

hi folks,
im a bt customer as they are the first at largest provider of phone lines and mabey broadband too in uk as far as i know.

Im no expert, but it looks like its just the ip and name of isp,BT in this case, it must just be some sort of way our adsl system works.

If this is the case then just because you have a bt customer hacking u then doesnt make us all hackers.

if someone is triying to hack u from a bt adsl line it sould be easy to track them as it just looks like its there ip but not with the dots.

We also have a fairly out of date broadband service in most of the uk compared to most countries in EU

You would find them on your website at weird times as we live in GTM time.

As i said im no expert but i wouldn't worry about all bt.centralplus,com ips

We may have a higher ratio of hackers and a certainly a lot torrent users as we have more easy going laws over here as in most of the EU. We won't get anyone sending us legal threats of knocking on our door unless we do something really bad.

Hope that leads some people to the answers they are looking for.

Only a guess but id put money on it:)

Most spams I receive from England are

have a suitable antispam policy.
England is part of Europe and as such

The guy saying btcentralplus.com is
a major ISP is lying. Check the

Hello everybody,

I have bought a small amount of traffic from a site called buyhits.net where I am pretty sure I am being cheated and that all the traffic I receive is fake.

But a lot of the traffic comes from Bt-central-plus.

Traffic example:

host86-165-199-236.range86-165.btcentralplus.com

ip: 86.165.199.236

So I am thinking if some of you say that you have computers infected with something related to btcentralplus, they might be using your computers to simulate and sell fake traffic?

Anonymous said...

You do realise that BT is the one of the Main providers of internet and phone lines in the UK, being that BT = British Telecom. So according to all of you my own internet is a fake and I'm really a hack of some sort simply because my ip is based off btcentralplus?. Has it not occured to you that that a lot of people from the uk may visit websites as well?

Anonymous said...

i think the btcentralplus.com is a british telecom bot, they have bots to boost hits on the services they sell people so people think there sites are more popular than they are an continue to purchase of bt. they are quite a ruthless company.

was downloading a private torrent the fact that one of the seeders was from the USA with a BTcentral IP which was wary strange... for an unknown reason i thought I'd Google this ISP, and here im am...
p.s. as someone mentioned, that seeder is REALY slow...
but if its British Telecom then why the hell is it in the USA?

lol you guys make me laugh, btcentral plus is the hosting servers for bt and there sole purpose is to issue wan ip address's to client computers/networks, most people doing dodgy things bounce there connection via a proxy in an attempt to hide themselves.

if your really careing then i can tell you most wan ip's issued by those servers are dynamic, exceptions are that they use bgp routers to maintain domain connections which generally renew the ip address monthly (some glitch and do it more often which is a pain) they also have btcorenode so if your ping an ip address and it doesnt go via corenode after btcentral plus on the way to the destination then it isnt a bt customer but a spoofer or bouncer.

The amount of spam mail regarding Viagra from email accounts hosted via btcentralplus.com is getting on my wick (sic). And the unsubscribe link attempts to download a trojon. Thank you AVG. The fact that the trojon activity is via btcentralplus.com now shows illegal activity IS occuring, so BT now have the ammunition to block these users and remove their site access. GET ON WITH IT BT.

host.86-155-78-221.range81-155.btcentralplus.com is received by my IP @ 74.211.86.26 numerous times a day,breaching firewalls, anti-spy and anti-virus protection.

i believe range81-155.btcentralplus.com is a pitstop for hackers as they make their way through numerous computers to throw cyber police off track as they head for the target computer to bilk, waylay or shut down their intended victim.

I speak from personal experience.

Check your registry to see if you have the CStateHacks listed within HAL. It's planted via SUS, entering the machine with MS WIN Automatic Updates and uses SQL, Adelphi and C++ to script and enumerate IE webpages. It also deletes hardware such as net adaptors or drags pertinant hardware items into DOS, infiltrates software and hides in anti-malware, including programs such as AVG, Avira, Avast. McAfee and BlackIce. It favors WIFI and will take over your network and PC.

CStateHacks is dormant until needed. Then it allows hackers entry into your machine via remote desktop, leaving traces in the internal modem to be reactivated every time you reinstall your OS.

I've been through 3 PCs in 4 years. No joke, very little help and/or info on the subject.

If any one has had or is having this trouble, please blog or contact me.

I just tested my network route through "MyRoute" by myspeed.com and found btcentral.com as an "IP Pool" in one of the hops before me (Hop 11). They must sell a bunch of IP addresses to people/companies. The notice said "Hop 11 is responding in an eratic manner, varying between 33 and 108ms response time. This could be indicative of a problem at this point." The hops before them came from Vitacore Systems, Virtela, which all provide serious hosting capabilities (cloud, big corps, etc). The point is TW is allowing their customers to come too far down the networking chain when degradation of connections occur. They sell a service they should make sure there are an efficient number of hops before the connection reaches their customers. TW should be held accountable.

I am not a IT trained person but I am in law school and this is my area of interest. In order to stop these attack spambots you have to set precedence. I would need persons in IT to assist me. I run a NING site and a person who has been harassing is sending spam, I suppose that makes him feel good. Since my site is on a powerful network and servers there is nothing he can do expect drive up my numbers of web traffic.
However,he was getting away with it..because he was following the members of my sites home locations.e.g.Spain,France, etc. but when I began to see a lot of CHINA I then knew..please contact me at chalesjohnson@ymail.com and send details of what you are experiencing. I will have to get to know you and you will have to get to know me, because nothing is real in cycerspace.

I'm in the U.S. I have a blog site.. I have a stat counter which gives me a break down of who visits my site, how long, where they came from. btcentralplus.com has come to my site today and yesterday, and now I have issues with my computer.. I am a writer and have been hacked before, nothing new to me and it has been done many times, but I am not sure how to tackle this person. The IP is 86.150.49.136. My site title has the word Pleiadian in it and the search words used on the search engine they typed the words "pleiadian geographical disruptions" ... This is their search term and they came to my site. They came on 22nd March 2011 18:48:24 and also another time on March 23... They really spent no time there and YET they knew knew enough to type the same words again in search to come back again... which makes me think odd.. or with deliberate to also not stay on a second return..

Does anyone know how to block or remove a virus if this is what they did??? If so please write to me at jewels2012ascend@gmail.com
