192.168.X.X is an internal network address...your "hacker" is either in the same room, or at least on your network, the other is an IP in San Francisco, CA, and PPPoE is a very unlikely method for a "hacker" to use, it's actually a very secure method of connecting 2 computers over the internet.

When i go to pogo and try to sign in it wont let me saying my pass word is wrong. yet it's the only one I have ever

Your account has probably been hacked and the hacker changed your password. Try the "I forgot my password" link and it should ask you some security questions or send a temporary password to your email address you registered Pogo with, but hurry before time runs out and they may be able to change the registered email if you wait too long?
Let us know how it goes?

I have heard a lot of reports lately about people camera's being hacked, but the information being reported is incorrect!!!! no hacker can just magically turn on your camera ,, it doesnt work like that. This letter serves to inform you on how its done, the methods involved , what can be done to stop it, how to detect it and how to catch that person.

Laptops and Web Camera's. (Wired and Inbuilt)

This is the safest type to have for personal use. A Hacker cant just turn it on ,, it doesnt work like that. In order for this to happen the hacker must have the victims computer "Zombiefied" , in other words hijacked. This simply means that there must be a program in the computer which allows the hacker backdoor access. This type of software is called a TROJAN. There are different ways for this to transmit this software to the victim, 1.) A Dropper in an infected email attachment e.g. "HARD ENCRYPTED IN A PHOTO (merging) , 2.) Hidden in a piece of software e.g, freeware or sharware 3.) As a TROJAN in Pirated Software, 4.) Via A flashdrive 5.) In an Active X Control or Plugin for Websites and Web Browsers, 6.) Email BOMB e.g auto redirect to an infected url containing the dropper.
Now the Virus (Trojan) isnt transmitted directly to the system, what happens is that firstly a dropper is installed, this dropper is small , can be installed at the blink of an eye, and deletes it self so quickly coders of antivirus identities will see hell to find it. Now the dropper then can take its precious time, disable your security measures (anti virus, firewall etc) and download and install the Trojan then delete itself. Now this means that once the hacker gets your IP address he can use that to access the Trojan on the specified port which he/she can then execute remote arbitrary code , like get access to the display drivers of the webcam, open your drives, shut down the system etc. basically anything he or she designed it to do.

How To Catch the hacker or tell if your infected.
Now if your computer is being hijacked there must be a connection to it! Basically data must flow from your pc to your hackers and the commands from your hackers pc to yours. So basically all you need to do is find out who your computer is connected to.

For Windows.
1.) click start
2.) In the run box type cmd and hit enter
3.) type netstat -n in the command prompt that appears and hit enter

now you will see 4 columns Proto , Local Address , Foreign Address , State

ok crash course,
Proto is the type of protocol
Local Address is your Ip address on the network, is a loop back, next to it is the open port of your system
Foreign Address is the Ip your connected to
State is bacically the state of the connection.

ok so you see a lot of foreign IP's with an established connection, start from the top.
1.) open a browser window and go to a whois webserver e.g
2.) do a whois search on the IP, e.g in the type the foreign ip in the box and hit enter .. e.g

this shows me this

OrgName: Yahoo!
Address: 701 First Ave
City: Sunnyvale
StateProv: CA
PostalCode: 94089
Country: US
ok so thats yahoo's Ip thats safe..

do this too all the Ips you have. once you find one that appears to be your hacker simply do a reverse DNS on thaty IP to get your hackers location or report it to the authorities (NO I AINT WALKING YOU THROUGH A REVERSE DNS).. So what if your hacker is using a proxy ?? chances are no, for one thing the connecting bandwidth needed will be to slow on a proxy server so he's using his own IP..

Wireless Web Cams, IP CAMERAS, AND Wireless Networks,

1.) All of these operate with an inbuilt server that allows the person access once he has the appropriate IP address. Hell a quick port scan on that Ip and i will have all your open ports, then simply log in to that Ip on that port , If prompted for a username and password try the default, if that dont work try sql, or js injection or other exploits and walla I have access. no need for a trojan.

2.) Wireless routers can be exploited by basically capturing wireless packets sent, from this i will have your ssid and and encryption type. Simply use Cain and Abel or other brtue enforcer or a jacker which will get me your encryption key, to make the process faster use the captured packets to limit the characters to generate the key. now I can connect to your router and if you have a home network I can join it or search all the computers to get to all your shared documents and files etc..

Ok what to do??
1.) firstly in your router settings use a really strong (character , number and sysmbol) password
2.) use a WPSK2 or stronger encryption system and use a really stron key (13 + characters, numbers and symbols) this will make cracking the key harder
3.) turn off transmist SSID ,, basically I cant crack what i dont know about
4.) limit your antenna transmit power so its only connectible within your house, I cant hack what I cant connect too can I ??

Now some point of information..

1.) your IP address Dynamic. meaning it will change everytime your router resets, do this at least once every week

2.) All antivirus / spyware / malware programs can only remove what it knows about regular updates are necessary. In order for it to function.

3.) Virus, malware, trojans, spyware, worms etc, are all different things , most antivirus will remove viruses , some spyware etc. use multiple software.. e.g AVG Free Anti Virus, Super Anti Spyware , Malware bytes. dont use more than 1 dedicated antivirus.

4.) Be safe!

Depends on the response this gets I will write a few more letters like this or if anyone is interested I'll be happy to get into more details about how these things work. Please send this around to as much people as you can and be safe .. regards Dark_Lord_TnT Ps. If you need any help feel free to ask..

Both My Inspiron and linksys will not connect to my ISP. They say both are receiving an invalid IP address! I have used all trouble shooting techniques including trying to release and reset! Even went as...

Step 1: Plug the computer (ethernet wired) directly into the modem. Power cycle the modem and when all the light come on you should have internet. If not call your ISP to trouble shoot.

At this point we should be able to determine if it is a PPPoe connection (needs username and password to connect) or if it logs in automaticly.

Step 2: Plug the router back into the modem and the computer plugged wired (ethernet) to the router. Remove power from both the modem and the router. Plug the modem back in first, once all the lights are on plug in the router. Try to connect.

Step 3: Log in to the router via its IP address (normally, if no one has reset the user name password it should admin for both. If it has been reset, you will need to know what the user name and password are to continue.

Step 4: Under setup if in step 1 you found you needed PPPoe, then you need to set that under the setup tab. Make sure you use the user name and password provided to you by your ISP. If you dont need PPPoe then make sure this is set to obtain IP automaticly.

Step 5: save settings. Once the router restarts, try to connect again.

If these step do not work, let me know:

1. who is your ISP?
2. What modem do they use?
3. What is your IP address when plugged directly into the modem?
4. What is your IP address when plugged into the router?

I will be around for about 1 more hour, its 2PM central time now.

I cant log in to my computer i put my password & it says wrong password please help

Do you have a reset USB? If you do, plug it in and click reset. If you can't, try searching the web on how to use BIOS and Safe Mode to help you.
Possible Reasons: 1. Your computer was hacked by a hacker 2. You changed your password and forgot 3. Someone could have absent mindedly clicked something
To prevent in the future, you should create for an account for every user, and try to defend yourself against hackers, by always having the most up to date anti-virus software.

Where do I find my PIN number ???????

PIN number stands for Personal Identification Number

Most Credit Cards have PIN number.

If you are being asked for a PIN number by a program running on your computer
you can consider that program to be dubious or hacked.

Most software vendors employ a PRODUCT KEY , not a PIN number

PIN numbers are for financial transactions.

If you are being asked your PIN number by a program other than your BANK
or a site that you are purchasing software from , then you are most likely being
tricked by an evil hacker and should not proceed to give them any PIN number.

If this is your credit card or bank card or debet card you are talking about.

Your pin number will be located on the back of the card , the last 3 digits.

How do i configure my dlink 302g modem to my new ISP's settings?

Hi Nitangel
Before proceeding with modem installation you need to gather your connection details from your Internet Provider. You will need to know or find out the following information about your new ADSL connection from your Internet Service Provider:

Connection Type:
Bridge RFC1483

Default IP address: (USB
Username: admin
Password: admin

· Username / password (PPP connections only)
· IP address / Subnet Mask / Default Gateway (Bridge connections only)
· DNS IP Addresses (optional)

To set up, log into the modem using your WEB browser: type in the address bar and press Enter.
Enter username 'admin' and
password 'admin' (default setting).

Go to Quick Configuration page.
Set Refresh Rate to "No Refresh".

Select Operation Mode: PPP.
In the Connection Type drop-down menu select PPPoE or PPPoA profile.
Enter username and your password.
Select CHAP under Authentication Type (check with your ISP if not sure).

Select Operation Mode: Bridge. If you do not see "Bridge" options please update your modem's firmware at
Select LLC or VC Mux as suggested by your provider.

Make sure your VPI/VCI is set according to your ISP requirements:

Click on "Save & Reboot" to save settings.

Then give modem a minute or two to reboot and reconnect. Restart your computer and you should be able to access the Internet.

You do not have to run any login client on your computer or router because your modem logs to your ISP automatically.

Hope this information helps if I can help further let me know.
