Having my web site hacked by a bunch of spooks is not acceptable and, if it is to you, than you definately need to unplug and follow your own advice cause, you all are certainly not part of the solution, but part of the problem...

I promised myself not to be dragged into this discussion
This is a long post, but I want to make certain that you realise that this guy isn't listening to us, just to his inner voices...
Jesterbr549 started this thread by asking about help how someone apparently anonymously managed to get information from his site at www.geocities.com... and comment on information at his site on other sites.
(Jesterbr549's site is btw a very peculiar mix of Apocalyptic Christianity, some really heavy doses of paranoia and some strange astronomical "insights". Oh and he refers to Jesus as Y'SHUA BAR Y'HOVA, which I belive he thinks is the Hebrew rendering of Jesus name.)
Jesterbr549 couldn't see anyone - in his www.statcounter.com web-Statistics program that is - calling up a particular page with info, but nonetheless people - who these people are Jesterbr549 (or David Hill as is his real name) wouldn't reveal, but hinted in a later post that [QUOTE] "...Having my web site hacked by a bunch of spooks is not acceptable...",
[END QUOTE] which probably indicates that someone "high up" is after him. So what conclusions does David draw?
Well, since he cannot see anybody accessing the page and someone apparently did that, then someone must have used "Stealth IP", that is an IP that didn't get registred.
It doesn't matter for David that several people, the moderator from this forum, myself and several others explained that the Internet doesn't work this way.
We talked about hiding the "real" IP-address behind proxies or hijacked WLANs and how it is possible to gain some anonymity on the Internet, but some traces - at least the IP of the proxy - will be logged at the target, in this case the Geocities web-server.
which proves to David that it is no longer just anonymous browsing, but "someone" is changing his links on his site...
And it gets much worse - proving for me at least that this clown doesn't really know what he is talking about:
So David is freaked out by receiving a "Failed Delivery Notice" of a mail he hasn't sent. This is a sign of worm-activity, where someone who has Davis's mail-address in the adressbook have been infected, and the worm spoofs the sender adress.
And he get freaked out of SPAM mentioning encryption and passwords...and it has "...actually happended several times....
Well, David SPAM works this way, you get them alot of times.
Who is this clown anyway?!?
If you read my posts in this thread you will see that I actually solved the "Mystery" for David, proving that it was only a bad implementation from statcounter.com that caused this error. I even did some tests proving that I could input whatever I wanted into Davids logs...
And what does he say to every person that want to help him? Basically "You are wrong on this. There must be a way for someone to get into my site, and scr*w your explanations. I may be computer illiterate [he actually says so in a reply to one of my posts], but *I* know that you all lie..."
MODERATOR:I think this would be a good time to lock this thread since David really doesn't want any of our help here at ATS, he just wants us to acknowledge his paranoia and that someone is after him."Mystery" solved.Case closed.I for one isn't going to waste my time on this clown again.

Use it as a learning experience and do what you can to educate yourself atleast enough so that you can greatly reduce the odds of it ever happening to you again. Or you can hire someone else to protect you if you must but it may be costly.

If the mods close this thread down before I have posted the experts statements regarding this subject, that it will be all the proof anyone needs to draw a reasonable understanding of what this site is really all about...
