Got copyright violation notice- I think my internet has a leak? - Page 3

WPS being enabled is probably your best bet.
The reason why is that WPS is matched to a 8-digit number - while that isn't very high, there are issues in the authentication protocol that allows the hacker to detect some digits very quickly, allowing WPS to be hacked within seconds.

Unfortunately copyright notices are rare to get, especially on very popular illegal content, so it must have been going on for a while.

MAC address filtering is stupidly easy to get past. If they have access to your network, and are able to decrypt the key for the network, it's extremely easy to sniff MAC addresses used.
Not to mention it's a PITA to deal with - ever tried forgetting that you had it on, and simply couldn't figure out why a certain device wouldn't connect. It provides little security for a knowledgable "hacker", but generally a massive inconvenience for legit users.

My suggestions are that you change your network passphrase, disable WPS (if it's enabled), and optionally get a new IP from your ISP.

On the other hand, the copyright notice is just that - a notice. They typically don't do anything about it if you only get one, maybe two, but it depends on your ISP.

Currently WPA2—PSK I don't think it can get better. The IP address has already changed since it's dynamic, I just reset the DSL modem if I don't want to wait for weekly reset.

I haven't gotten any new information from my ISP, all they got is a generic IP address, timeframe, and name of files (Avatar the Last Airbender, which I already have on DVD) so at this point it's either wrong IP address or wrong time frame (copyright police checked after DSL modem had been reset and I got the previous IP address of said illegal download-er), wrong file name (some programs do have torrent-like activities like Diablo and WoW which uses P2P for updates, and it may look like I was using BitTorrent or something and data stream looked like Airbender series?), or MPAA is trying the shotgun method hoping one of the shell hits a legimate illegal download-er while inconveniencing and scaring the rest of us.

If I don't a paper letter in the mailbox fingering me, I'll just ignore the email and change wifi password whenever.

I was reading around today about this Heartbleed bug. And on some forums there was talk about routers being insecure if they were allowing remote access. Now I don't have any idea how legit that claim is. But if it's possible, then maybe time to check your router settings and update the firmware? If anyone could confirm the possibility of that risk either way - I'd be very interested myself. My router has not had an update is some time lol... Anyway - just throwing another idea out there tongue.gif

Heartbleed is serious business. For real.
