Ok,I am going to write my story now.
First,please excuse my english,I am foreign.

The Beginning

1999 I was staying in Thailand at a friends house for some years.
At some stage I bought my first PC.I didnt really protect it in any ways,as I didnt know much about viruses or hackers.
I stayed online for hours using prepaid internet usage cards of various ISP s.
I tell that,that you know,that my IP changed all the time and had no fixed adress.
As you probably know,in Thailand you can buy CD-roms of any kind (software,mp3 albums) for a dollar or so.So I bought alot of stuff and played around with it.I bought 3 CDs with Hackertools and Info aswell,just for getting familiar with the topic.
All started,when my PC behaved strangly at times.I had the feeling,that someone was hacking my Pc with no intend to destroy anything,but rather to get some of the software in my posession.
So I started to reinstall the operating system for some times to get rid of the hackers.
At one time a windows message opened saying:
Just because of an argument you dont have to delete your programms !
Now I ask you:Is that a normal windows message ?I believe not.
Soon after I had my first remote controlled encounter with someone.
I wanted to reinstall my Windows 98 SE again and somehow got lost in the MS-DOS mode.Couldnt get Windows installed.So I sat there,doing lots of stupid things in MS-dos and was totally lost..Then suddenly the monitor whent black and I heard some noises from the harddrive and after some time Windows started from its own.A message was displayed
ont do that again!
When I tried to conect to the internet,it wasnt working either.I changed all the settings in various ways till I knew,that I could never get it back right again.
Suddenly the taskbar went up like a wall to cover the window with the modem options.I heard the modem dialing once,twice,three times,then it stopped and after a minute or so dailed again.The wall went down and I was online.
What a nice hacker,I thought.I started comunicating with the hacker(s).
My way was to open the notepad,write something to them and then closing the notepad again.Also I never got an answer in an obvious way,I knew,that I was not alone anymore.
The strange thing really is,that after some time I didnt even need to connect to the internet anymore,to have the hackers be with me.
To let you know about the possibilities,the intruders had,I give you an example:
One day I was just playing around with some music programms (which got configured perfectly by remote),when a friend invited me out.
So I opened notepad and wrote this:
"I am sorry,but my wife and the seven children need to spend some time with me too,so I will leave you for a while.
At that time the lightbolb obove my head flickered for the first time.
As the electricity in Thailand is not really good and stable,I didnt really think about anything unnormal.I had bought a copy of MS-Encarta a few days earlier and that CD was the following main communication from the hackers.
For example I was reading an article about wireless pc connections in encarta
and in the middle of the text there was the following sentence:
Married men with seven children have not much time to work with computers.
I wanted to save this article,but was surprised by a blackout.The whole electricity in the house was down and the funny thing was,that the PC made a noise like in the movies,sort of arificial intelligence going to die.
On halloween things started to get serious.
At this time my PC must have been upgraded in a way remotely,because it was fast like hell.I had a compaq presario 7500 with 500 MHZ but the sites in the net would open straight away.Everything was at highspeed.
I must have been online four hours,surfing many sites about security aswell as the microsoft sites.This night was strange because the light above me sort of directed me to some sites in a way,that you wont believe.
When reading a directory at times the light would flicker quickly.
So I sufed the site,that I was just reading,while the light gave the sign.
It liked the microsoft site somehow and I was just clicking around ,opening files with strange numbers,sort of running applets,but I didnt know,what I was doing.Directed by the light.
From that day on,the whole community in my neighbourhood behaved strange.Dogs where barking,when I wanted to switch on the pc,a thunder struck nearby or some person was shouting on the street.
I know,you will say,well thats nothing unusal,but read on.
First I noticed,the TV was hacked ,too.There where messages of numbers and letters,when using the remote and switching channels.
And when my friend wanted to watch a VCD on the pc,I told him to listen,when switching it on,something would happen.He laughed and in the moment,he wanted to press the switch,the neighbours car alarm went off.
Must have been a coincedence,of course.
And now the Jackpot:
The next day I watched the news on tv with the following headlines:
MICROSOFT HACKED .Something about a sourcecode............
And guess what? They said the attack originated in russia,but was done through Bangkok,Thailand.

I could die with this knowledge,by not telling anyone,but life is boring now and I wish the company to come back.
That was the part of the story,that is not really supernatural,but anyway,
it triggert the rest of the story.
If you like the story,I will soon continue with part 2.
Let me know...

even if this is all made up(i don't say it is), it still is a great story, and i would like to hear the rest.

Let's have part two... The light part is a little hard to beleive since you cant send data packets through lightbulbs but the rest of it, someone getting control through a trojan is completely possible, my IT guys at my company can take control of any of our computers while they are on the remote access to our office network.

This is a valuable tool for my branch offices all over the country because it allows the home office IT department to be virtually anywhere. They can literally get on anybody computer, figure out the problem and correct it (just like your "hacker" was doing) without ever leaving my headquarters! Awesome.

Sounds like a good story, but that about it.. There was an incident about some source code being leaked from a company that was working with microsoft, but the be able to abtain the souce code you would actually need the source code and just about impossible to get the source code from a computer running the operating system.

here is a link for some reference.
It is strange,also I read in the papers some days later,that the russians used a remote controlled pc or network in thailand,there is nothing,I could find now...
Heres the link :

What they appear to have had access to is the source code for products in development "years and years away," the spokesman said.

What I can tell you,is that I saw 3-D wheels instead of the normal toolbars,
with the options and I had a blue screen in the middle of the screen under which I found some log files .
Also strange,but true,I heard voices through the speakers saying:
Oh,he found us.(All that happend,,at the time of the attack.)

I think I have been used by the russians...

some of it is believable, but being quite knowledgable about networking; there is no way they can "hack" your TV. There is also no way, unless you accept dial-in connection or you have a wireless card; that they can direct your computer if it is not connected to the internet.

Lights? Not unless they hack the powergrid, or messed with your electrical system.

And i've rarely heard of people getting trojaned/hacked while in dos mode.

If i were you, id pick up an anti-virus; they're are plenty of trial versions out there; and see if you have something like subseven, or the like running on your machine.

Well, you weren't really "hacked." Some lame script kiddy infected you with a Trojan (Probably NetBus as it was the popular client/server attack at the time of your story). You got 0wn3d by a n00b

Aye, It was a good read mind you, however the idea of the lights and the other such happenings when preforming operations on the computer seem somewhat hard to believe :S

weren't we going to get a sequel to the story?
have been looking forward to a good read

i highly suggest you read up and do some , do some advance searchs on google for things to do with the cia , mind control , mkultra , amoung other things , if itsn't related to those topics ( which i have mixed feelings about ) i will say that everything you said is possible , just highly unlikly , but if it is infact happining it could be that your a old soul and the information your getting is coming from your uncoiuncesss , which has or has had a direct feed from your soul , , but it may have been your own mind that controled the fly

can you hack a computer while it is offline? ive never heard of that. i mean, this sounds like house control and cameras and splinter cell with a ghost twist more than a hacker....
