Let Me start by saying "Hello Cruel World"
I have been getten hacked by hackers for a long time now and it seems like i might have them scratching there heads.

You can use this with Linux and Windows. All your doing is renaming your computer.

In the computer description just name it some random name like: DRrres#$@@#$$$efgg4r%$$%#@SDSSSETRFER$##@@#@##.

Of course if you using a non admin account do it with that one also.

Than rename your account in user accounts.

Now you cant be hacked through cmd or terminal.

If they are using ultrasound to hack your gear you shouldnt have to worry if they change anything cuz it shouldnt take effect.

So when you're in your computer's settings you change your computer's name to something like you posted and this helps prevent hacking? How does that technically work?

I'm not a computer genius, I'm just wondering.

I am in no way an expert...but once they are into your system past your network firewall and your OS firewall, they dont need your user account passwords or anything of the sort. What you suggest wouldnt do a thing dude. Just think about it.

If you HAVE been getting hacked and you arent just messing up your own system then you need to change your browsing habits. If you want to learn to hack, go to school. Usually people get targeted when they go to weirdo sites and ask how to hack. I am not saying that is what you did, or that you went to weirdo porn sites or dark web type places, but you are doing SOMETHING. You need to stop.

If you run a clean system and are prudent with your activity you should never run into a problem.

There is no secure system. There is only pain in the ass measures for amateurs to not get too far along.

You could change your computer name to an invisible character (hold alt and press 255, then release alt...using your keypad) - not even sure if that will work. I played around with Linux Backtrack 5 r3 before, and using ophcrack, to identify computers and crack their wifi password (these were my computers, and I was using this method to test security), the computers were identified with their MAC address, not the silly windows name.

Don't want to be vulnerable? Unplug your router.

I used to test my network with winPcap back when WEP was supreme. I manged to crack it a few times. Never gave it much thought after a while. I am no one. Who the hell wants to see what I am doing? I dont think I would even mind if someone got in and just snooped around. I am not innocent to keep things I shouldnt, there really is nothing on my machine. I dont use anything but cash so what can they do? Make me wipe and re-install? Oh no....not thaaaat.

In the end if they are not destructive, who cares?

Have you installed antivirus software?

That's what you need if you're surfing dodgy sites.

Try downloading Avast!

It's free.

That helps.
By the way, anyone experiencing the " Fullscreen Pop Up ...
"Your flash player needs to be upgraded"
Adobe like style, but the fine print reads that the upgrade
link has no affiliation with Adobe.
Or how about Phishing warnings Red Screen Style,
or even
"Click here to contact your ISP Immediately"
Security Threat.
These have all been happening to me ONLY
and ONLY when I visit ATS.

Not to mention the additional window page that pops up
in the background and other misc little redundant pop ups
that take over my sonic ,

plus these multiple carbon copy little windows playing ridiculous video clips
that you cant turn off.

Is this ATS's deal, or is this infiltration?

Regardless, it is concerning.

S&F Best to You

yea couldent find anything if ur really having problems you could get on skype with my frind who is up there with the best

but i gota say a isp change would solve it ina hurry its probly not a "hacker" to say but a script kiddie or someone who you really pissed off

once u change ur ip ur set ... ur mac adress dosent matter if they dont know the ip

it takes little time call ur isp ask for top end tech witch will be harder than anything tell them so and so from some game has ur ip for whatever reasion and is atcking you they will change ur ip game over they got no idea who you are

... unless ur playing a game on there server ... there are only so many ways to hack someone

u cant hack someone if u dont know where they are

its not like how u see it example

if u play a mmo they would have to crack there slq to get a hope at seeing ur ip
even than it be hard

if its some online sight same thing gota crack slq witch is well most hackers except the elite find that verry hard

the bios virus is posible delt with it on another pc took 20 mins to fix reflash bios

change ur router over to ddwrt and if you cant buy a router you can and if you dont have a router buy one for ddwrt

why its a level of security ddwrt is linux based and a bad ass firewall

all the user names and passwords on the planet wont help u knwo what it takes a program to crack that once in lol try 12 seconds hidden anything dosent matter 12 seconds its no 128 bit encoded password its what tops 50 chars crack it in seconds

if ur shure of this change ur ip get a ddwrt router and really stop pissing people off online

no way someone is that motivated if u didnt do something

more info would help alot tho cant fully fix ur problem without knowing the full story

Want to be as secure as possible on your pc, phone etc? Get a VPN service, they are cheap now and add a lot of security to whatever you use it on, most vpn providers now have windows software, android and iPhone so each can use the vpn individually although I recommend buying a repeater for your wifi router, (a dd-wrt installed router, available from £20 to £200 on ebay etc).

This way the VPN can be enabled on the router making every device that connects to it over wifi or cable, automatically masked when using the Internet. This also let's you use streaming services from other countries etc as well by just changing the country of choice in your VPN settings.

Also obviously keep anti virus up to date and use anti malware software such as malwarebites. And to the original poster, if I wanted to hack your pc and whether I was targeting you specifically or not, I'd do it through dropping a binded server (Trojan) then come in through the open ports on your (probably isp stock...) router. Easy done and I don't need your username or password. Not that I hack people computers but that's how it's done (basically, few extra steps like setting up listening port etc but that's on the hackers end) and in any event, changing password and username means nothing in securit terms...

If I come in over the network, Im already coming in behind the username etc. .. so it's pointless and if I have the laptop or pc in front of me to hack, I run a program from a usb to remove password etc anyway. .

I dont use stock modems and routers for security purposes. I have a WIFI router on a port on a pc that is used as a firewall/router with a linux distro called smooth wall.

Also, disable UPNP (Universal Plug And Prey) and forward ports manually.

That's a result of spyware installed to your computer, most likely a BHO (browser helper object). You can remove them with a program like - hijackthis
