emzb Posted May 21, 2013 Share Posted May 21, 2013 Hello all. I don't work in IT but am being targeted by an ex-partner who is a systems tester and his 'hacking group' which consists of people that work in infosec and penetrating testing. the hacking is very complex and has been going on for quite a while now (almost 2 years). Basically I found out that he had hacked my work PC to spy on me, then I found out who his hacking friends were and now they pretty much all like to spend their free time harrassing me. pretty much everything gets hacked, smartphone, windows, linux, mac, even my TV recorder box which is attached to my Internet connection. 'they' will make the box pause when I am watching TV, just mess around with files and in general be annoying. I've been using live cds since it all started but the network just gets sniffed instead. I am not re-infecting my devices, I have had 2 new ISPs, changed routers, nuked hard discs, and I do not click on links or open attachments, I just am unlucky to be targeted by a psycho with clever friends who are presumably also psychos. yes, I realise this sounds unbelievable but no I am not making it up (unfortunately). my question to you is... if I buy a VPN account and use it with a live cd, can my username and password be extracted from the temporary operating system and can I trust the VPN will keep my boring ebay searches private from my ex's demented eyes or am I doomed to having my Internet searches monitored for the forseeable future? any advice will be appreciated! thanks.
