Finding who is logging into my GMail / Facebook - 08/09/07 04:30 AM

Someone is logging into my gmail and facebook i think because i keep getting booted off of facebook. I tested with a friend logging in and similar effect. Also sometime my email is tampered with. I was wondering if there was something I could do or some link I could place to log the IP of the intruder.

I highly doubt that either service makes login logs publicly available to its users... Why not just change your passwords and aassume your "backup" email address isn't set to an account that isn't yours?

Probably because they want to find out who it is and not just stop them.

Well, as I said before, they do not make their logfiles publicly accessable, so it'd be imposible to snag what the last X ip's logging into your account(s) are.

Is there some sort of link or something I could place in an email or facebook message and when the curious intruder clicked on it, it would take them to a place that did record their ip.

It'd be easy enough if you know how to code, have webspace, etc...

nobody knows my passwords, and i keep changing them up, you know, rotating, back and forth, keeping it fresh...

as far the ip log ... ummm yeah you will most likely get a isp that you will need a court order to subpoena the records from...

do you have a good attorney ?

I can see it now "Mike, we just got a summons..." "what for george?" "some kid wants all access addresses that have ever logged into his account" "umm, do they realize we don't log that on an account by account basis?" "no, probably not" "so he's paying his attourney 20k to send us a summons?" "yeh, that's the jhist..." "'eh just type out '192.168.1.1 and 127.0.0.1 500 times and throw in google.com every so often, that should satisfy it"

doesn't the riaa take similar actions with internet service providers to get the ips of people downloading snoop dog songs ?

granted that to really dig what you want out would be next to impossible, but i do think the information exists ...

scratch the attorney idea, get the j edgars on it !

Actually, who knows, do you honestly think they're that sohisticated? I know for sure that one of the ways they trap people is seeding the songs from sites (or running the sites themselves); you can find this out for sure, do a test... Install Peeer Guardian and go download 100 songs. Turn it off, download another 100 songs. Wait 6 months and get a couple letters from your ISP and see what songs you're flagged for...

99% chance, none of the "peer guardian" songs will be listed; the onlyones which should show are "non-peer guardian songs". This is because peer guardian actively blocks known ip ranges, and as such they can't sit and bitch to your isp.
