So today someone got onto all of my email accounts changed the pw's ect. I was quick to act and found out 2 hours after. Reset all pws and got them back. They also attempted to change my password here on bleeping computer and I got an email that shows the ip address of the person who tried to reset it. They did not steal any money (yet) is there anything i can do with this ip address or anything i can do to find the person or get them in trouble?

They also tried to change the 2nd email on my email account so if I tried to recover the pw the recovery info would be sent to there email so I have that email. Any ideas on what to do next?

I scanned all my computers so I dont know how they keylogged me. I dont click links or open emails from people I dont know and my pw Is not easy to guess its leters and numbers out of the 4 email accounts they got 3 had different passwords (2 emails had the same pw)

I would first make sure that you still don't have any open devices. like an open router or default router (out of box/no changes)

if you are on wireless,
make sure that you change the router password,
set mac addressing for temporary to only your mac address
change your SSID then / acquire to PC / then disable SSID from broadcasting (reduce any targets from being seen)
change your password and security settings

if you are wired
make sure that you change the router password,
set mac addressing for temporary time to only your mac address

you should be able to put in a block from that ip address that you suspect. in your router firewall

(simple solution)
make sure its not a family member - pranking you.

Before making changes to system, I would back up Hard Drive to image file (ghost)
run hijackthis and save logfile, look for obivious unknowns
Update av products (I like webroot antispyware/antivirus)

make sure you backup pc first (to image file) then run combofix ... http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/273628/combofix-usage-questions-help-look-here/ then sdfix

I hope this helps,

You can get some info here at Whois. I am sure others will have some more info.

If they have hacked you as it appears you should scan for Malware and any keyloggers.

Your passwords should be changed from another PC

Next you should reset the router to its default configuration. This can be done by inserting something tiny like a paper clip end or pencil tip into a small hole labeled "reset" located on the back of the router. Press and hold down the small button inside until the lights on the front of the router blink off and then on again (usually about 10 seconds). If you donít know the router's default password, you can look it up HERE.

ComboFix is an Anti-Malware tool used by advanced malware technicians

specifically trained in its use.

Please DO NOT USE COMBOFIX on your own without supervision!!!
