My internet activity s being tracked - Page 2

post #11 of 52
Just be happy someone cares enough about you to actually do it smile.gif

Ps. You probably want to reinstall windows (or whatever os you are using). Make sure the media is clean

Get a firewall and anti virus. I like the combination of avast and outpost security.

Get a vpn. I like mullvad. It encrypts traffic from your local machine.


All this assumes you dont care about who is tracking you. I only read your post halfheartedly (it was so boring my eyes actually started to bleed.) but you found the info online?

Sounds like you have a RAT or keylogger. I would back up anything you want to keep to a clean flash drive or HDD then remove it from the system. Then I would grab Hirens boot CD and wipe the drive (assuming it's a HDD, if not use Parted Magic) with zeroes with the corresponding manufactures tool on the CD. Then I would reinstall windows, install updates and drivers and get a real AV such as Avira, then plug up the drive you backed your stuff to and make sure none of that is infected by scanning it with Avira.

The moment you began to seriously suspect this, you should have disconnected your computer from any and all networks, then scanned/cleaned it, or done a complete wipe after backing up crucial information.

This is still what I would do. You are also going to want to change any passwords you've used, and probably cancel any credit/debit cards you have been using online as well.

Assume that everything you've done with the system, that the contents of every file on/accessible by the system, and everything that occurred near the system, if it has a mic or webcam, is known to others.

Honestly from a networking/software side of things I'd suggest to go about this both ways to remove any off-chance of them tracking you still.

  1. Format your PC,
  2. Then change your IP (Ring the ISP and tell them the story)
  3. Don't install all of the software you've been using, just the genuine legitimate ones (Chrome, Office. etc)

After doing so I insist that you do not use add-ons etc or third party programs apart from basic/well known ones until you've cleared up if you're still being tracked. If so add them one by one until you get something, or just find alternatives. Myself personally, add-ons seems to be the easiest way to get a virus/logger/tracker.

Yes, I do realize that this is extreme but it is indeed the best way to be the most certain that you've removed any part of what could possibly be happening, they already know your name, where you live, your passwords and what you read (and view), they're probably onto this now if it's as bad as what you've made it out to be..

Maybe try a device on another internet line, prefferably a phone/tablet as these are less suceptible to virus' in comparison to windows.

Anyhow on topic,


Are you sure its not just a coincidence? I suggest you check the processes running in your background along with finding a packet/network sniffer to see what connects to the net to upload data and such.

Thanks for the replies everyone. Bear with me, I'm not very good with English.

I'm positive it's not a hoax, I just recently did a full system scan using AVG and it came up with absolutely nothing though. Would AVG be good enough to find these keyloggers or the like or do I need something better?

How do you even minus rep people?


edit: also, are you sure this is rational? You're not just like, noticing a personalized ad and thinking someone's out to get you right?

My rep was positive then one day out of nowhere it was negative. If you google negative rep on overclock.net there are people on here with negative 10 to 20 reps though and apparently only mods can do it at the moment. I spoke with a mod and he said overclock.net mods have no way of tracking who or when the negative rep was given? Guess I won't be trading anytime soon frown.gif

Yes it's rational and yes it's happening, I assure you. I've always been well known locally through my work and hobbies which has never caused me any issues socially, it's the internet folks that get creepy about it and lately they've gotten invasive. I can login to an online game any day of the week as early as 2 or 3 am and they're on in full force. Hackers with dope phein schedules apparently. There's really no question, the only issue is dealing with the internet stalkers as strangers who recognize me through my work in my day to day life are always kind/respectful.

Have you got up to date antivirus/firewalls etc and anti-malware like malwarebyteshttp://www.malwarebytes.org

You could also try browsing in private mode etc.

Just to be sure, what would a physical installed device look like or be located? I switch out my drives pretty frequently which usually means a fresh install of my OS. I never use maleware software as I don't typically click on bogus links or download anything unsafe and I've never had a virus in the entire time I've been putting together computers. The answer is no though, I'm new to anti-malware.

just change you IP and hope the RAT server dont call back lol , if the problem persists , you gotta clean install your computer

I did try contacting my ISP and they told me my IP is dynamic so all I have to do is unplug my cable modem leave it off for a while and when I power it back on my IP will be changed. This was a few months ago and it failed to do anything about the stalkers. They can still see what I'm doing. I've done one or two fresh installs in the time I've been aware of them as well to no avail.

Or if you live in some ****hole town like the town i go to college in, we only have 1 isp, and its ran by 2 people.. 1 of which i go to classes which. He likes to get on the ISP's internal website in class and we LOL at what people search for.

and how did you go negitive rep? in the like 4 years on here thats a first for me too.

I'm thinking it's someone local as some of the comments I've heard from friends who don't even live in the same county but are trying to help have mentioned re-postings as simple as accurate time's I was doing my laundry. These people are definitely childish, especially the folks who manage to find their way into my gaming chat windows. The people watching my internet activity speak a lot of IPO's and Port listening as well.

Potentially. My brother isn't very trustworthy so he might very well be giving out info, however you'd still have to be pretty crafty to mess with my chats in game as I've even gone as far as deleting all online public profile info in my online games. People can't see if I'm on or off through gamer tags alone.

My thoughts as well.

My laptop has a cam and a mic but not my desktop, the cam I disabled but the mic I didn't so I'll disable that also. I'll switch up passwords on all accounts as soon as I do a re-install and have a sufficient combo of malware/firewall programs put together.

Yes, it's happening, confirmed by friends, kind local folks and the people who consistently want credit for their stalking. Can you suggest a good packet/network sniffer?

Lol, you said AVG. Seriously though I don't think AVG as doe so hot in a long while. Avira, avast and norton seem to be the ones that have the least amount of viruses when they come in te shop this year.
