I suspect I have had my computer accessed remotely by a friend who went on to read very personal information me.

The reason I suspect this is because he keeps saying things to me that suggest he is aware of something related to it.

I find this alledged act almost unforgiveable, a complete invasion of my privacy and I don't know what to do. I'm really angry, there are two things [email protected] like to do in this order,

1) I'd like to see if there is any evidence on my computer of the attacks which probably happened around a month ago

2) I'd like to access his computer and read his personal information which may also give me some evidence as to whether he accessed my computer.

Any help you can give me to acheiving any of these aims is really appreciated. I'm so angry about this, and extremely hurt.

Accessing someone's computer without their permission is illegal. So, us walking you through step by step into this persons computer, while implausible in possiblity in the first place, isn't going to happen here. Specific 'Help me hack so and so' questions aren't tolerated or answered here.

As far as locating evidence, if you say this person accessed you remotely, try locating a portion of their IP address and searching for files on your machine which contain this address, and possibly the event viewer, assuming you use windows. I don't see any other way to link this person with an action of such nature any other way.

Is searching for this portion of an IP address as easy as typing the digits into windows search?

This is why we set up auditing

If using Windows XP Pro ofcourse

Take a peak in Event Viewer/Security and look for any funky looking logon's or failed authentication

Windows Search really won't help in searching these files. Better off using the right tools.

Also hacking his computer to get information really won't help you in a legal case. Infact it could get you in a load of trouble.

Not to mention you probably lack the skills to do so

If you have any reason to think your system was compromised, you'll also want to take that info and use it to augment your security. Best thing to do anytime a system is compromised is to rebuild it. Next use spyware and anti-virus utilities to prevent trojans from sneaking in. Strap on a personal firewall and if possible set up a simple access list on your router. Ingress and Engress filtering will help you out as well as blocking any ports known for being exploited. Infact block any ports for crap you aren't gonna use. Clear out your cookie jar on occasion too. If you really wanna be hardcore then toss on some NTFS Permissions and Encryption.

Don't think of this as a personal attack, but a learning experiance. Your friend was successfully able to remotely access your computer. How did he do it? How can you protect yourself? Use this as an oppertunity to get a better understanding of your operating system and basic network security.

yeah man, if you can get your friend to invite you too his house, go to logmein.com

that is a free little remote acces tool where if you are physically at their comp, you can install it, and then you can get full access. Thats what i would do. SImple, but effective.

as most teenagers consider "hacking" this will get you in the computer, and let you connect from your house. You cant share files, but you ping IP adresses, view the network, and if its a computer on the router, you can set up a packet sniffer to pick up passwrds.


Yeah im new. But I dont want answers alone. Im not here to damage people's systems. I want to take the road to information, and knowledge. I believe in the freedom of information, but i also believe that one such as myself should have to do a little more than ask to receive it.

It sounds like you have windows and in that lies the problem switch to linux and it is then quite alot harder for people to break into your shit


One of the problems the internet has introduced is that in this electronic village, all the village idiots have internet access.
