Re: hacker hoax?



sf's advice is the first best advice to take. Stop messaging with this
person in any way, shape or form. How do you know they're in a different
state than you? Either you have his email address, or you are communicating
with instant messaging (where you can just cut him off). Either way, you
have control...so invite him to meet with you...and your dad. lol

Stop instant messaging and music sharing, buy a router with a built in
firewall or put up a personal firewall like zonealarm. Do not respond
to that person in the future. Hopefully he doesn't have your email
address.

Is that at all possible even if they install a program on my computer?
Not
that there is one but I want to know.

As far as I know, you'd have to install it yourself... but there are
ways unscrupulous people can trick you into doing it.
