Ok get this, I come into my computer room the other day, and my aol explorer had generated tons of browser windows, cascading effect such as winning solitaire. Then, aol locked up , and I shut it down. A couple of days later, I get a call from my dad, a member of my address book, whome I've recently had a email dispute with, stating that I spammed him with magazine trials and mailing lists. I did not do anything like that, I understand that it would be quiet malicious and possibly illegal. However, if those requests were generated from my computer and IP, is there anything I can do to prove that I didn't do it? He's talking about prosecuting me and everything, he's quiet the bleep. I told him I didn't do it, but I haven't mentioned anything about the possible hack. My security on my computer isn't that great, I'm on a wireless network in a populated suburb of Tampa. This also is on the hackerwatch.org watch map for recent attacks.. Very coincidental, but to the least a pain in my rear. I'm going to have to get a lawyer and everything to fight because he is very determined. I need to somehow document the attacks on my computer, but when I was attacked I didn't think anything of it.. The HUGE amount of data going through it shut down my 3.4 DUO with 1g DDR, crazy huh? When it shut it down it locked everything up and turned it white so I couldn't see it, quiet crafty indeed. If anyone knows anything on how to fix this, please email me asap so I can get this straightened out.
