How to catch hackers--and make them pay

A new service from McAfee will soon let you discover whether anyone is hacking into your system and, if so, let you submit that information to the malicious user's ISP or local law enforcement officials. The project, known as, is an ambitious attempt by McAfee, a division of Network Associates best known for its antivirus products, to create an interactive antihacker community online. But will it make a difference?

You probably have spyware on your computer. You'll need something like spybot search and destroy to make sure you don't get P0WNED again...

I need some help. I have this message that says I am logged onto my computer in other places and I know I didn't give anyone my passwords to anyone. I think it's a hacker or hacker(s). I am not sure how I can get rid of them because I didn't install the anti-virus/spyware software properly. And they must already know my passwords and everything. So please tell me me how I can get rid of them and keep them out. Thanks.

The way some of this starts if after you accept a PIC from a "Hacker" they can then see your password,
Then the pretty much have just as much control over your MSN account as you do!!.....DON'T ACEPT PITCURES IN MSN MESSENGER FROM PEOPLE YOU DO NOT TRUST 100%.

This has to be the dumbest thing i've read. Maybe it was the kgb sending a EMP pulse to your modem? Download tor and get it running enter 8118 as http proxy and use 9050 for socks protocols, check all the boxes under connection/network settings. Your IM will then be more anonymous READ as unmonitorable. Run web based virus and spyware removed at trendmicros site.
