hi. i was just hit with what i am certain is a denial of service attack. one minute i was connected fine and the next i get limited connectivity. i waited a few minutes and reconnected then it worked fine again. but after i sent a message to a friend online, it was instantly disconnected again.
there is also another nearby unsecured internet connection i can reach, so when initially my own personal internet went down and wouldnt reconnect, i switched to that one.... however within minutes it was getting limited connectivity as well and down as well. so i switched back to my personal one and then again it went instantly to limited connectivity.
is this a denial of service attack? it seems insane to me that a hacker could be sending packets to a 2nd separate connection and disable it as well minutes after doing my own personal ip... but maybe it's not all that hard. i really dont know. how can i protect myself from this? is there any way to prosecute someone doing this? it is screwed up. i have had the unfortunate luck of meeting a gang of hacker low lifes and for awhile it seems like they lose interest in me but then i always end up having random issues like this over and over. they have stopped contacting me directly but in the past they have said to me before they will never leave me alone for life. its retarded. i want to prosecute them or something. is there any way to prove that someone has been attacking me ? i have run through a sleu of root kit scans and i never seem to find anything. i just ran through a huge list of tests with someone here on bleeping and everything checked out clean... but then things like this happen.
what would you do to prevent this? what should i do. its so stupid that someone can just screw with someones net and theres no defense?
