OK, I started a topic about someone spying on my computer, or at least my conversations on YIM. Someone I know suggested my IP address might've been hacked, especially since my IP address is always changing despite the fact that I don't use dial-up. How do I find out if my IP address has been hacked and how do I stop the hacking and spying?

unless you are a business and subscribe to a static ip service (about $10 extra through my ISP), any cable/dsl ISP is almost definately using DHCP to distribute IP addresses to clients. It is supposed to change. They probably block port 80 upstream from your computer too to prevent you from trying to host anything that will eat bandwidth you are not paying for.

Really? Good.

But is a changing IP address ever a sign of malicious activity?
