    Hijackthis Log File

    Hey... Does anybody know how to decipher the Hijackthis log file?? It comes with a million warnings about not deleting anything before checking with a knowledgable user!?

    Incidentally, I strongly suspect that the hacker is a member of this forum.

    Thanks in advance

    EDITED.... I think I can identify two hackers from this forum!!!

    Just run HijackThis, click 'Do a system scan and save a logfile". Open the logfile and paste the contents here and I'll have a look.

    How do you think you've been 'hacked' ?

    Im not sure... I will post the log here as you request but I guess I might not have to bother pending your thoughts on this reply...

    I replied to a post here about supplying some graphics, the site became available and I joined the forum. Since then, my 2mb broadband has been going at more or less dial up speeds. The other day, the forum disappeared so did the person I was dealing with and my connection speed has returned to normal. Everything seems ok on my PC but I have no idea if anything has been stolen and I have no idea if the background functions on my PC were being used for something else (dunno.. diverted downloads or something!?)

    Grateful for your thoughts. Thanks

    Please explain...

    In terms of Hijackthis, it'd be useful if you could post the log here, then we could have a look.

    To be honest, it sounds like you have no clue what you are talking about.

    How are you being 'hacked' ?

    How did you come to the conclusion the 'hackers' are from this forum? IP's are not publically viewable, and even if they were, you can't do much with an IP these days.

    Ha! I get that vibe, too, just from the sytanx and semantics you used, Rocket. A lack of speed on your home PC can happen for tons of reasons. This type of thing happens to every computer I am on every now and then. At my house, I have a terrible ISP that seems to fluctuate my bandwith randomly from week to week, but they are the only cable internet provider in town and I am stuck using them. There are thousands of feet of cable between your modem and the ISP, and even more from there to the rest of the internet, so your speed problem could be connected to tons of error points. Maybe the cable lines were overpacked. Maybe a server or two went down with your ISP. Maybe Chuck Norris threw a Super Kick to a phone pole supporting your cable line down the road.

    You can if you're a malicious hacker and want to bugger around with someones computer, you can do if they haven't taken obvious and simple security security measures such as installing a decent firewall and fully updating their computer with the latest patches etc and you have their IP address...

    Some people get confused about loads of IP addresses entering their firewall logs trying to access certain ports...99% you don't need to worry about it as the source of the IP is a server connected with a piece of software you're running maybe or something connected with something you're browsing etc.

    Oh? Please, do tell, what brought you to this conclusion? I'm not implying the possibility of hackers being on this forum is non-existant, but your statements definetly need some further backing.

    Just because you replied to a post here, doesn't mean someone can just hack you. Whatever IP address you used when you posted is logged but the only people that can see that is the moderator(s) of the forum it was in and the admin.

    Oh yeah, followup question: Why was it just you that got omgh4x0r3d and nobody else? If someone WAS going to use these forums for some hacks, they would most likely hack a ton of members PCs for use in some virus distrobution or for a giant DoS attack instead of picking out one random member and accessing his/her computer for a little while.

    EDIT: post your hijackthis log already so we can take a look

    EDIT2: Sweet new edit-in-same session button upgrage. That is way better than loading a new page to edit in! When did we get that?

    Thanks for hearing me out before drawing your conclusions.

    I cant post the log file here now because the people in question use this forum. I guranatee it, I could even tell you who they are but I guess you will be ok figuring them out by yourself!!

    Due to your responses though, I should probably leave you all to it and find the answer to my Hijackthis question somewhere else.

    Well why dont you give their names to WA (the admin) and see what comes of it... Could you tell us how you came to the conclusion that they are from this forum though?
