Hi, I been googoling around the web about "How to attack the hacker/attacker of my server or pc?"
Cause I already know his IP address, but I don't know how to attack him back. I know it is somehow a bad way of doing revenge but im just really curious on the broad meaning of IP's..
Hope the mods here can help me with my concern, I know it is somehow a bad way. 🙂
Thank you, looking forward for someones reply.
Thanks for signing up for the forum and posting your question.
It's very frustrating when your PC or IP is getting attacked, hacked, malwared, etc.
The more frustrating part is not being able to immediately take action against the person attacking.
The unfortunate circumstance for victims is they often think they've got the IP address of the hacker when in fact they don't. The IP address you have most likely belongs to an unknown 'host'. Meaning the hacker has hacked someone's home PC, has connected to their computer and is attacking from their computer unbeknownst to the computer owner. This method of cloaking keeps the hacker 'hidden'. Often times hackers will jump through several PC's before attacking. They'll also use WIFI connections that are open, whether they're residential or commercial (internet cafe's, etc.) in an attempt to cloak even further.
We do provide [URL="http://www.whatismyip.com/tools/ip-address-lookup.asp"]IP Address Lookup[/URL] tools where you can enter the IP address you have and view the results. The data that is returned will be somewhat accurate but not exact....so please keep that in mind.
On a side note, we're happy to help you protect yourself from being attacked, but aren't going to offer advice on how to retaliate. If the hack attempt is serious enough, we encourage victims to contact their local police department.
