    My account trying to be hacked....

    On another forum, one I really don't even frequent (posted there one time) I got an automated email that said:

    The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 74.53.243.34

    Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Use the link below:

    All the best,

    According to this website:
    http://www.geobytes.com/IpLocator.htm?GetLocation

    It appears to be from the Chicago area.

    Anything I can/should do? I replied to email and asked them to ban the IP address. I'd love to actually find the bugger and surprise him somehow. Any ideas on how I can (relatively easily because I'm not spending a "lot" of time on this)?

    That's great, but can I actually trace it back to a real person? That's what I'd like to be able to do.

    Generally, no - IP addresses usually resolve to the location of the ISP.

    I emailed them and asked the account be deleted. I only posted there once to try to get an answer to question quick, so there is no personal info on account, just basics. Its a forum for a media player software that I use now (JetAudio).

    Happened to me once, and it was someone who decided to register on the forum with my username. Since the username already existed, he assumed he'd registered it himself and forgot (after all, how many people would use "cydewaze"?).

    I found out after he registered with another name and used the "email member" feature to contact me.

    Rookie.

    Overall, I'm probably registered in dozens of forums. Only a few that I'm even remotely active in. Really just this one and one other anymore and the other one I'm barely active in (maybe about 5 posts per week).

    I do not think that the IP tracking will work, as you think I am in the Chicago area and I am in Texas.....


    I mean good luck catching that sneaky bastage, KT!

    What's your password on that site? I'll look into it. Also, what's your mother's maiden name? You remind me of a KingTermite I met once and I just want to see if I knew your mother before she was married.

    First thing I would do is make the password as long as their software allows...and make it as nasty and nonsensical as possible until they nab this tard (keep the password on PDA to read it later to login).

    SOmething like "eui8923((@)092[pP{0394...1290dffadK\+-321<>><lkdl" should really piss off any password *******.

    I'd consider downloading KeePass, and using that to make (and store) the password. KeePass is open source, and generates passwords in as secure a way as possible.

    I keep my passwords on a detachable flash drive for reference. I set up strong and impossible to memorize passwords anymore and need a reference.....what can I say?

    example, not a real PW: mxlptlk74%^534

    Okay Tom and Catatonic, probably pure happenstance, but you two just posted my passwords. Cat was first, I changed it and now Tom gets it! Dang, I am just gonna go back to using my mom's maiden name for everything. Uhmelmuhay is easier to remember.

    mxlptlk74%^534 is what I named my dog! They say not to use a pet's name as a password, though.

    Contact his ISP's abuse department.

    Use the American Registry for Internet Numbers to find who owns an IP address range (if it says APNIC (Asia Pacific Network Information Center), LACNIC (Latin American and Carribean Network Information Center), RIPE NCC (Réseaux IP Européens Network Information Center), or AfriNIC (African Network Information Center), then look on THOSE sites.)

    And, the ARIN lookup on that IP shows that it's ThePlanet.com Internet Services who owns the IP range that that IP is in. Their abuse contact is abuse@theplanet.com.

    Funny how the website I found to track it, put it in Chicago area, the one Tom found put it in Virginia, and ARIN (the most official looking one that I think I'll trust) put it in Texas.

    Well most IPs are dynamic and get re-used. So I think without knowing the ISP it's kind of hopeless.

    The ISP has been identified along with the abuse contact information. Pay no attention to the location of the ISP, it may have no relationship to the location of the offender.

    Dynamic IPs are always within range[s] assigned to and managed by the ISP. So you can always locate the ISP by the IP.
