    If this person was hacking my computer I could stop him. What he or she is doing is hacking into the AIM service and read me and my fiance's AIM logs and using that info to do mean things. Both me and my fiance know this person is a faker, but we want our privacy back. How can I stop them from reading our conversations?

    What evidence do you have that anyone is reading your aim conversations and what 'mean things' are they doing?

    Do you know this person outside of the internet? Does this person have physical access to either your or your fiance's computer?
    I doubt they are actually "hacking" into AIM's servers. Even if they could, locating your information among the 100's of millions of other conversations would be hard. Anyone with this level of sophistication generally, would not go around bragging about it. (as in most places, it's a crime) Most likely they're a script kiddie with delusions of grandure.

    I would start by both of you changing your passwords, and seeing if that helps.
    Fixin' shit that ain't broke.

    I was able to stop them from reading our conversations. Since I couldn't remember my security question to change my password I just created a new account. I know who the hacker is, I just don't know how I can proove the are the ones doing it. Well, they know I'm onto them and I think them IMing me with an account just one letter off of my fiance's account was their last attempt are trying to ruin our relationship. I don't plan on blocking the hacker so I can keep an eye on them, but now I know better than to fall for their tricks again.

    Sounds like you're paranoid on this one, not giving the answers to questions put to you like "what evidence do you have etc"

    It had just be a lame script someone has pulled from the net, they have sent it to you and you have accepted it. Run a scan and it will find it, that or a key stroke recorder which would be weird cause it would need to be on both yours computers. If you know who is doing it why not confront them, they will just try and do it again if you don't put a end to it, that or your paranoid like someone else said.

    I wouldnt class that as "hacking"
    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.

    I know this is real because this person knew things I ONLY talked with my fiance about. Well, I found a way to stop him on my own. I guess I really didin't have a need for you people after all.

    "I'm having problems with a hacker" - we're having problems with a weigh anchor.

    Amongst a few other's two types of people I dislike intesly are:

    1) Stupid people

    2) Paranoid people

    I think she fits the bill as being both !

    Just out of curiousity, I am wondering how (MewSkitty) you realise that someone literally "hacking " into the AMI server and pry into your messages?

    I dont think she's coming back online again. She's probably hiding under her bed with tin foil over her head.

    Either that or it WAS a hacker and now she's been murdered with an axe........in which case i'd feel really bad.

    Err... The person asked a legitimate question in the best way he/she can describe the problem using their obviously limited knowledge.

    People are afraid of things they do not understand - as was the case here.

    Your contribution to this thread failed in all but one regard...

    Anyway, MewSkitty, remove any software you don't need on your PC.

    Download:

    http://www.grisoft.com/doc/31/us/crp/0?prd=isw
    http://www.spybot.com/

    Auto-update both and run a scan, you may have malicious software installed.

    Make sure you have an internet firewall running:

    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/u...2_wfintro.mspx

    If you got all that, you're in the clear (for the most part). Also remember to change your remote passwords (e-mail/AIM accounts) and keep them secure - as you've probably done.

    Other than that, more information is needed...

    Good luck.

    Are you a social worker ? :wink:

    No, I think she had an IQ (judging by her paranoia AND her blatant inability to reason) of around 90-95

    Hi,

    This is my first post, firstly the term hacker has been warped so much in the past couple of years, it does mean a highly intelligent programmer with great knowledge of computers. It does not mean a stupid scipt kiddy some where playing with Sub7 to get you keystrokes...

    If you really want to find out who this guy is next time you realise he's loggin onto your stuff hit:

    Start > Run > Type "cmd" then type netstat -n

    This will let you see all the computers that you hold a connection with at that time.. take down all the IP address's contact your ISP and get them to set up a block (or do it your self via a firewall)

    If all he's doing is reading your messages then he's not clever enough to spoof his IP address...

    Dan
