  1. Sorry gentlemen,
    I've been having some trouble with a hacker and have been offline for awhile. First my e-mail was hijacked, I apologize if anyone got SPAM sent to them from my home e-mail, and then when I got my account back he hit me again doing some damage. Hopefully all is resolved now and I will get to any e-mails tonight.

    Drew,

    download a personaL firewall...like zonealarm...at www.zonealarm.com

    do not open any attachments unless you're expecting something from someone

    keep your anti virus up to date

    just a few suggestions
     
  3. Thanks Dryden.
    I always delete unknown e-mails but I can't say for sure if my family does the same and could be root the cause.
    As for zonalarm I've had it installed for years but it is a bit dated. Updating it is on my remaining to do list but honestly from what I've heard zonealarm and other software type firewalls such as Norton are pretty useless against anyone except novice hackers.

    BTW anyone heard whether hackers can bypass security by entering via things such as AIM, IRC, mIRC, etc.? Reason I ask is last time he attacked I noticed my AIM had been opened.
