Preferred Solution: gmail got hacked, lil advice

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Question: hacked gmail

If I have posed this in the wrong place, advice as to where to post it is welcome.

My gmail account was hacked. I advised gmail they cancelled it, I went through the process to get back the account name with a new password. Today, gmail returned an email that I never wrote as undeliverable leading me to believe that my account is still being used by someone. The gmail account is attached to many things including my blog, so I would like to keep the name.

However, it seems I still have the problem and don't know what to do.

Can anyone offer advice?

Answer:hacked gmail

This does not necessarily mean someone has hacked into your account. You can log in to Gmail and go to sent items and see if that specific email was sent from your account (although this is not a foolproof method). You can also see at the bottom of the Gmail screen when your last activity was.
For interest sake anybody can set up their email account but use your Gmail address as the "reply to" address. In fact this is what a lot of spammers and bots do. The spammer can then send unsolicited email to people and the recipients think the emails come from you.

Question: Gmail Hacked?

My Gmail account was temporarily disabled after a "suspicious" login occurred. The login was through a Windows computer, which I don't have, so evidently something was wrong. I changed my password after re-activating th account. However, my email address is no longer displayed at [email protected] but [email protected] with no period separating. Also, when I send emails the address that I am sending from (and what people see) says "Match.com". I have absolutely no idea how to fix this short of deleting my whole account (which I don't really want to do).

i received an email from warez-bb.org saying please confirm your registration but i though it was a mistake and thought nothing of it. i then received an email saying i was banned from warez-bb forums for a certain post so out of curiosity i decided to have a look as to why i was banned from a site i never registered or posted on. turns out i couldn't log on using the user name and password they had previously sent me because i was blocked.

I decided I'd check my gmail log on history to see if i could find anything. Turns out i was logged in from 121.96.217.98 and was logged in at 3:30am when i was sound asleep in bed.

Answer:Gmail Hacked

Don't know how your email was hacked, but I will offer some advice from personal experience:Check all of your online activity -- especially anything associated with financials like your banking and credit card accounts. Immediately change the password to your online bank account and credit card access and inform them that you may be a victim of identity theft.If you are in the United States, you can easily put a 90 day fraud alert on your social security number. You may think this is being a bit melodramatic and over the top, but I assure you that if someone accessed your email and it was linked to recruitment sites, whoever did this could possibly have access to all that is needed to steal your identity.Go to: Experian. At the bottom of the page under the Additional Products & Services section - Credit Report Assistance, click on Fraud Alert. This will bring you to a page where your first option will be to click on Initial Security Alert (90 days). Click on that link. It's a secure site. Once you fill out that information, your information will be provided to TransUnion and Equifax (the other two credit bureaus). You can then print out a credit report if you wish. This 90 day alert can be renewed every 90 days forever if you desire.Be proactive. If someone has accessed any of your personal information, don't let them walk away with any more of it. You may think I'm an alarmist, but ask anyone who has had their identity stolen and they'll tell you that it all ... Read more

Someone has managed to access all my contacts on googlemail and my Facebook account. They are sending messages from a site called NETLOG asking people to view my photo's. Everyone is receiving this message. I do not belong to NETLOG. I also received invitations from friends to join NETLOG, and on enquiring, none of these friends had even heard of netlog. How has this happened? I thought having a MAC prevented this type of thing. As you can guess, I am not very IT savvy! Any suggestions and advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Kim

Answer:Someone has hacked all contacts on Gmail and

Hacking Internet email accounts has nothing to do with your PC or type of machine. Opening emails from unknown sources is potentially dangerous to anyone. Chances are someone has either guessed or found your passwords to these sites. Logging on and changing the passwords may re-secure those accounts. If they have changed the password, you may need to send lots of emails to prove you're the original owner. Worse case, you have to create new accounts. " I do not belong to NETLOG" ...your account does, now....If you run into a problem, post it. Someone will give you insight to the problem.

Hey,
I noticed that somebody else besides me has logged into my gmail account. When I went to log in activity yesterday it told me that someone log in with ip address 216.194.62.45(metconnect) which is Brooklyn and I live in the Bronx. I changed my password and today someone has logged in with ip 216.194.62.206(metconnect) which is Staten Island. The strange thing that has also happened is that I couldn?t log in today with the new password that I made yesterday. The password was changed backed to the old one.

Any ideas on what might be going on and what can I do?
Thanks

This past summer in May, I had my Battle.net account hacked and they had also gotten the registered e-mail information and kept changing the password. I contacted Blizzard and had the email changed and password changed and then ran AVG antivirus (free) as well as Malware Bytes. It found quite a bit and removed everything but it seems it has happened again. My gmail account was hacked and this morning woke up to a changed password and mass spamming of all my contacts with an email advertising something. I ran Malware again and it found 1 file and AVG found nothing. I also per recommendation downloaded Comodo Firewall. Just wanted to get some "professional" help to make sure I'm clean and what I can do in the future to prevent this. Thanks for your help!

I was unfortunate enough to have my personal Google gmail account hacked this morning by one of these spammers that resets your password and then sends an email to everyone in the address book that you've been robbed in London and need the recipient to wire money so you can make it home. I haven't been able to access the account and I guess it is gone for good because Google keeps rejecting my account recovery pages. So far, apart from the damage to my pride, nothing seems amiss. I have some annoyed and some amused customers contacting me but my main concern is is the damage limited solely to Google? I don't have a keylogger or anything like that do I? How would I know? Is there any way I can get back into that account without Google's help? I've been changing passwords and usernames all day but I'm paranoid that I've forgotten something. As an extra precaution I reset my computer to a clean restore point before all of this happened. Any help/encouragement is definitely appreciated.

Hi!
My android phone suddenly lost all network connection.
When I came home in two hours time and tried to log into my gmail, I got message: your password has been changed. I managed to log in and change password to a new one.
I saw the recovery email was changed to some unknown to me; which I briefly changed back.
I also saw that this activity was from somewhere London (I live near London, but for my activity gmail shows my town).
No emails in inbox and in sent folder, but in trash bin I saw two emails from Vodafone: (1) we got your call that you lost your phone and we blocked your phone (2) we got your call for swapping your SIM card.
I called Vodavone and cancelled all this.
Once I got my SIM unblocked, I change gmail authentication to 2-step.
I realize that my gmail was hacked because I use it for about 10 years without changing password and I used same password very long ago on some other sites :( I also find my email was leaked when LinkedIn was hacked and my home address and phone could be available to hackers.
My question is what to expect next?
It is very difficult to find any information on my gmail, because first, I write to myself tons of very long emails and if I search words like 'bank' it brings hundreds pages of results; second, I try to keep all sensible information using hints known only to myself.
But could the hackers manage to copy all my gmail box during those two hours? As far as I remember, Google showed there was a login to gmail from Internet Explore... Read more

So I was frustrated because even I did not know the security questions; I could not sign in for around 2-3 hours and after that when I tried my password (This time in my personal Computer with ESET Smart security) I could sin in; once I signed in, I changed my password and now I would like to know whether this email address is safe anymore or not? Can I still use this email address knowing I have changed my password? Also I would like to know whether there is a risk of getting a keylogger after being hacked? Is keylogger installed on the system or email? When I got hacked I was with a public computer, so this means that if any keyloggers have been installed, they have been installed in that public computer? Right?and Now that I'm using the email address in my personal computer there is no risk of having a keylogger?

Hi

I logged on to my Gmail account this morning, and found that the vacation setting was on. I thought this was strange, as I hadn't set it, so I opened the settings and found that it was set to send some dodgy mail to anyone who wrote to me, inviting them to meet online and sending a link to some pics (obviously, I didn't click this link).

Then I checked my sent messages to see how many people it had been sent to, and found that not only had it been sent to people who wrote to me during the night, but also that a different mail had been sent to a whole list of people whose addresses were all very similar:
pers-(then some letters and numbers)@craigslist.org

The mail said only "heyy, i think we can fill each others ad " - with no link. One person actually replied to this wanting to meet up!!!

The subjects headings were replies, like "Re: Fun witty guy Looking - 26 (Central Point)" or "Re: anyone real? - 19", suggesting that they might be replies to dating posts.

I do not look at Craigslist.org, and have not looked at any dating posts anywhere.

How has this happened from my email address, and how safe am I now? It seems to be back to normal now.....

Thanks for any advice you can give.

Answer:Has my Gmail account been hacked??

To read: http://tech.yahoo.com/blogs/null/586...B4eB3JLpcFLZA5

E-mail spoofing

A feature of the protocol that email is based upon is that the email message itself has a number of spaces (data fields) for information like the "intended recipient", "sender's email address" and the "return email address", "CC", "BCC", etc etc. within the email datagram (think of email like a picture postcard with spaces for the sender name and address as well as name and address of the person it is being sent to).

What someone has done (or rather set up a piece of software to do) is send a spam email to so many million email addresses with the sender's FROM email address set to be the same as the "intended recipient's" TO email address. This is done for two main reasons, partly to try to get past email spam filters that filter on known spammer's FROM addresses (or email domains) and partly to hook your interest in getting an email from yourself - which it achieved.

So the spammer is not sending spam email from your email account (that is - they are not hacking into your account and typing messages), but simply using your email address to send spam email to you. Just as if you had got a picture postcard through the post addressed to you with the offer of cheap Viagra but was signed with your name.
You can also try a program like MailWasher.

Hey,

About six weeks ago, both my Gmail and WoW accounts were hacked. I recovered my accounts and changed my passwords on a clean computer, and ran Avast, Malwarebytes, and Microsoft Security Essentials. They found a few viruses and they were deleted, and I received no more trouble.

However, just a few days ago my Gmail and WoW account were hacked again. I once again recovered my accounts, changed my passwords on a clean computer, and ran the same three anti-viruses. This time, however, they didn't find any viruses.

I very strongly doubt that someone got a hold of my passwords because a) no one knows my passwords, and I change them regularly, and b) the accounts were accessed from China both times (and I live in Canada). Both times, the hacker changed my passwords, and despite having access to a lot of other information, only used my WoW account to sell in-game items.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance in helping me find what I assume is some sort of keylogger. Thanks!

I use Googlemail for my email address. Today I received an email from myself but copied to practically everybody in my address book. Presumably this means that my email account has been hacked so I have immediately changed the password. However, as my password was already a mixture of numbers, lower case letters, upper case letters and symbols, whoever got hold of it is unlikely to have just had a lucky guess. Is it possible that a batch of passwords has been stolen or have I just been unlucky?

Answer:Have Gmail passwords been hacked?

I doubt that your Gmail password was hacked by brute force because it's very strong and Gmail should have blocked your account after multiple failed login attempts.
The most prevalent method to harvest login credentials is via an email supposedly sent to you from a friend or colleague who has already been hacked. You receive an email and assume it was sent by them and the email has a link that says something like "click here to view the photos/documents". You click on it and it asks for your email address and password. Because you know and trust the person who sent the email you happily enter those details.

My gmail account got hacked. Offenders changed my pw, alternate email address, and deleted my contacts. They sent email out to all the contacts saying that I was stranded in the UK without money and asking for contacts to respond to arrange to send $2000.00. Offenders changed settings so that response email would be forwarded to their account. Friends who got these fraudulent emails called and alerted me and I contacted gmail and reset the alternate email address so they could send me a link to reset pw. Upon regaining access I discovered the extent of compromise.
I also rec'd email from facebook that my account with them has been breached. I still have not regained access to that.

Answer:gmail and facebook accounts hacked

Norton is mainly an antivirus product, maybe they include anti-spyware too now, not sure. There are many ways to steal access to your gmail. One of the ways is to install a keylogger on your pc, and steal username and passwords as you type them. But if you have accessed your gmail from another computer, like at university; public library, your friend's PC etc, then it may be that those computers are infected and not yours. Also, it may not be a technical attack. Simply being able to look over your shoulder as you enter the passwords will get you hacked just as easily. Then, there are whats called brute force attacks, where a program simply points to a login page, and tries each combination in sequence till it hits the right one. Gmail may not fall to brute force attacks, but if you use the same password on multiple sites, then there is a chance that they hacked that account first and tried to use the same password on gmail. Then there may have been phishing attempts made at your account and you mistakenly entered your password into a web site that only looks like Gmail. There should be more ways to steal your gmail, but I am not a hacker.

If you are running Trend Micro along with Norton, you might end up with them interferring with each other. You cannot run multiple real-time antivirus products together.

When you reset your Gmail, use a complex passphrase that is easy to remember. Eg. The phrase "Kirk is the rightful captain of the USS Enterprise" can be tr... Read more

Every time I sign out of gmail and sign back in I get the following message 'account open in 1 other location '.
The new location has the same IP.I sign out of the other session and try again, the same message.
 
I do not use gmail anywhere accept this computer.I am using Ubuntu.
I get the same message if using  other OS's such as Fedora on a Pen drive
or Windows 7 on another Home machine,though I only use my Ubuntu
machine.
 
I did the following.
 
1.Formatted the PC and reinstalled Ubuntu.
2.Changed ISP's ,one ISP goes through my Home phone/LInksys router the other ISP i use is wireless dongle
   mobile networks,[ had caught the ISP admin doing something naughty some Years ago and warned him].
   I get the same message.
3.Tried Fedora on a pen drive.Get the same message.
4.Created a VPN using zenvpn and than TOR, This showed open in two locations in a newly created gmail account...!!?
   All new locations have the same IP.
 
Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Answer:Suspected MiTM,gmail account hacked.

"The new location has the same IP.I sign out of the other session and try again, the same message."
 
Are you signing out of the session you just logged into or the one "... in the other location"?
 
The message about the other location, it has the IP of where it is, is it the same IP as where you are just logging in from?
 
You sure there is nothing running in the background that may be automatically logging in (like google apps, drive, etc?)

A couple of weeks ago I found out that someone was asking sellers questions posing as me on Ebay. They changed my Ebay password and so I was locked out. I managed to verify my identity through Ebay's sytem and change my Ebay password.
Around the same time I received an e-mail to myself advertising Viagra and upon logging into Gmail via the web saw that a group e-mail to all my contacts had been sent. I also found out later that they had been forwarding a copy of all my mail to a French e-mail address and sending the original mails to my Trash. I removed the forwarding and changed my Gmail password.

Under Last account activity on Gmail it showed that my account had been accessed by a couple of rogue IP addresses abroad.

I thought that would be that but it seems that there have been a couple more attempts (according to Gmail's IP address log) since over the last week.

I am running Comodo Internet Security and scans have shown nothing.

I just ran Panda's online scan and it reported that I had the following:

Gmail accounts hacked via unpatched hole

By Scott Spanbauer

Exploits allowing hackers to break into Gmail accounts are likely to occur, if they're not already circulating, after security researchers released details of a hole that Google has reportedly declined to patch.

There are steps you can take to reduce the risk of using a webmail account, but it appears that the usual tricks won't solve the Gmail problem until Google fixes the software.

The weakness that researchers say afflicts Gmail, a free e-mail service hosted by Google, belongs to a class of attacks known as cross-site request forgery (CSRF, pronounced "sea surf").

Besides Gmail, CSRF holes affecting YouTube, Netflix, and NYTimes.com have also been found and repaired in the past. CSRF attacks use security flaws in cookies, password requests, and other interactive Web components to intercept communications between your browser and a Web site's server.

The first report of the Gmail problem within security circles was written by Vicente Aguilera Díaz of Internet Security Auditors (ISA) on July 30, 2007. The next day, ISA issued an alert and included a proof of concept illustrating how the exploit could be used to change a Gmail account password.

After more than a year during which, according to ISA, Google was repeatedly contacted privately about the problem researchers publicly released a detailed description of the exploit on March 3, 2009, according to a Secure Compu... Read more

Hello,
My gmail was hacked yesterday and a lot of emails were sent out in the space of half an hour (I found out it had happened when I checked my mail during that half hour) which were all - it appears - returned as spam. The person changed the sender name when he sent them out. I managed to change my security, making it much tighter, but I am somewhat paranoid about the mails (which looked to be encrypted to me, but not sure) to to nearly two thousand email addresses ending in .ru.
I considered that my email password was strong, but someone still managed to get in.
My big worry is that information about my credit card accounts, etc., was gathered, though there were no passwords or anything like that in my email account. I am in the process of changing passwords all over the place. Just very paranoid, and such a horrible feeling of someone getting into my account. Paranoid about all the encryption too.
Any suggestions as to what I should still do which I have not yet done (I have removed all the strange contacts, done two-step notification passwords, made a new account for banking only, told friends not to click on any strange links from me, and that's about it) will be much appreciated.

Answer:Gmail hacked - over 1800 emails sent out to Russia

I would do some general scans, and post a HJT log etc to the malware removal forum to check if you're infected with some kind of RAT / Keylogger. Change all passwords from a DIFFERENT computer if possible, try to make sure it's clean. Other than this I can't think of anything else you can do. Your mail was used to send emails that could be used for any purpose. I'd also create a new mail account, just incase.

Hey all, new to the forum Summary of problem: my Hotmail and/or Gmail password keeps getting hacked even though basic anti-malware scanners say I'm clean.Background: Couple of months ago my Hotmail and Gmail accounts were hacked. I scanned using half a dozen of different programs (PrevX, Spybot, Malwarebytes, etc.) but didn't find anything. As I was still using shared passwords at the time and my Hotmail and Gmail were linked to each other as security backup addresses, I figured one of them must have been leaked. I switched to unique passwords, cleaned out all the emails' security options and carefully declared myself 'safe' again.Until this morning when my Hotmail/Gmail were hacked in the exact same fashion (the fake 'security email address' added was similar and they once again went after my World of Warcraft account). Scans once again show nothing, but an hour later after changing passwords there was still evidence of them having limited access.Question: Is there any way to more thoroughly check my system? Thanks in advance Edit: I run Windows Vista, 32-bit.

Last week I found out that my Paypal account was being used without my permission. I contacted Paypal, and they helped me back into my account changed the password and have sent out a security card, the next day I tried to log in to Paypal and found that my password and security questions had changed. I contacted Paypal again, and they found that someone had added their email address to my account so they invalidated that email address, and changed the password again. Today I tried to log in to my email address (the one linked to my paypal) and I was unable to access it, the password had been changed. I immediately checked my paypal, and was unable to log in. I called them, and all of my information had been changed including my email address and my mailing address. At this point they locked my Paypal account so that even I could not access it until my security key card arrived. I have since recovered my gmail account as well, by filling out the account recovery form. Please help! I don't know what to do.

Over the past 3 weeks my battle.net and gmail accounts have been hacked on 2 major occasions. The first time the hacker seemed to always know my passwords after i changed them and i was engaged in a 30 minute battle of change-the-password before the hacker attached an authenticator to my account and locked me out. I then had to contact Blizzard to restore my account. After that i installed AVG and removed 4 infections and thought myself safe but last week i got hacked again when i was out, i didn't leave my pc on so he must have gotten my passwords earlier.I tried running DDS but it just quits and doesn't give me the logs.

Have just receieved an email that shows up in BTYahoo as being from someone we know. Although this person does have my email address, we never actually contact each other via email.
So it was a surprise to see an email "from XXXXX". The "from" field appeared as their first and second name @btinternet dot com and so I opened it.
The "to" field also shows as this persons email address and not mine. The BT quick reply box has a "rocketmail" address showing.
It's obviously a scam as it reads "we and the family are in Spain, been mugged no money....." all very well written, in just the correct gramatical style that this person would use.
The person in question lives alone, recently widowed, been in hospital...
So what has happened ? The email uses first and second name terms, that's why I opened it as although unexpected it appeared legit.
I'm guessing their email account has been compromised in some way.
Also, does this mean that the email address I gave to them is compromised now ?

Answer:Hacked Email advice ?... what has happened here ?

This is known as the stranded traveller scam and has been around for some time. I had one about 6 months ago. See this The spammers/scammers/phishers have probably obtained details by hacking an account somewhere. It could be Facebook, hotmail or an e-mail account or company website.
I doubt that your e-mail address is compromised. Certainly the person you know need to run malware and virus scans and change their passwords. For greater security you could change your e-mail password.

We had been experiencing a very bad web connection, every evening for several weeks it kept disonnecting and the router would freeze after a couple of hours.I first thought it was coming from a lousy tree map of our local network ( sometimes people change the cables from where they were plugged in) so I check all the cables, repared the lousy ones, etc.Secondly I phoned the ISP to check the line wasn't faulty (us being in the middle of nowhere with a low bandwdith -2M)Thirdly, I filtered each MAC address (20 computers in our local LAN) to sse if one of them might be causing the freeze.....And after all that, after seeing something absurd in the list of local LAN clients in the new Cisco router.... like a 10.x.x.x address instead of 192.168.1.x.... didn't have time to note the MAC address or IP of this "thing"I now realise, after permitting all computers in our local LAN and blocking anything else : it works 24/7Someone must have been using our connection from the outside.... our HARD LINE, this is.We're in the middle of a load a corn fields and no one in their right mind would come with their lap top, in the middle of a field and hack a connection.... so....A part from MAC filtering, is there any way of setting up a better security for our network against this type of attack.... and HOW DO I FIND OUT who the hell was doing it if possible.....thanks... :)

Answer:i need advice : someone hacked our hard line

Since your still a small network i would set static IP's on all machines, and specify only a 20 machine ip range on the router and add new ip's and mac addresses when needed to the new router.

So my computer got hacked and now I have no more windows xp. Lucky me, I have lunix installed so not everything is lost. My pc froze and I had to do a manual reboot. When I went to load Xp it said "ntdlr missing press control+alt+del to reboot". So I did and the option to start windows was gone. I have the Xandros desktop installed as well, so I still have access to my hard drive and all of my windows files are still there. I just don't know how to go about the situation. As I said in an earlier post, this pc was a gift and I do not have a windows boot disc to use to do a recover/restore. But i do have all the files still. Is there a way I can reload windows through lunix if I have access to the files?

Answer:My computer got hacked now my windows xp is gone. Any advice?

You need to restore the master boot record... But you would need the recovery console on a CD for that. Google it for a download...

Or, from your Linux partition, install GRUB and and use GRUB as your boot loader. Either will work fine.

I just purchased a dell inspiron windows 7. Im using gmail but would like to route it to a simpler email program. Important fact..im not very good on a computer but i try my best to research & make basic changes on my own. Anyway i was reading that Windows 7 does not have outlook express and therefore routing my gmail to windows Livemail is the way to go. I just had a website built my computer guy said I should use Outlook (not outlook express which I know is not avail) & that if I had Office (I think he said Office) that Outlook would be included. I told him i had read about using windows Livemail & he said they were both good but that Outlook is the way to go. I told him i would try to do it myself (since this guy charges quite a bit plus Im up for the challenge).. I saw some detailed clips on youtube on setting up the windows livemail & setting the gnail settings however before i start messing around id like to get some good advice as to what program would be best to rout my gmail to. Is Outlook a good option? or Windows live mail? thanks so much for taking the time to read my question.

I am posting this as follow up to previous post..
 
Please help as I know I was hacked on windows xp computer. Now I have the windows 8. The security logs earlier said someone was scanning for the account without password. I am not sure how this guest account is enabled in the text files generated. One more thing. My Norton internet addition toolbar has been acting weird. I always enable it, then it gives me prompt to reenable it again and again. While posting this website said that the website is down 11/18/2015 around 12:00 to 12:18 am PST. Also there are lots of strange things going on. It could be from a person in same home too. Please help.
 
*************************************************************************

Answer:Hacked previously,Am I still Hacked or what(contd to post logs)

Norton Internet security always gets enable prompt on the google chrome. And also in the addition.txt, the guest account is saying limited enabled, Now after posting and in few minutes, when I am on useraccounts, it says that the guest account is off. I am not too sure why my laptop stays on when I get up in morning, I am not too sure whether my laptop didn't turn off.

What on earth do I do?

Monday

Midday, a spam email was sent from my account to all my contacts. I could still log on, see my emails and send new emails but no incoming mails were reaching my mail box. Asked a quesiton on Gmail Answers forum, but got a useless response

Tuesday, by 2pm my account was suspended completely, I can;t log in? I can't reset my password? there is on line form to fill out to contact customer care, I filled it out, but no one has responded.

Wednesday, still can't log in to my account, filled out the form again, but again no response

Thursday, still can't log in to my account - 8 years of emails lost. Lots of security and privacy concerns. Tried phoning Gmail, but the london number[Removed]is for billing enquiries and you need a credit card, I don't pay for any services from Gmail, and this is not a billing enquiry.

HOW DO YOU CONTACT GMAIL, and I don;t mean an online form, I have done all that, I mean telephone and speak to a person, or LIVE CHAT with a human not a "Bot"

Thanks

Hi, welcome to TSF

Google don't offer phone support for these kind of problems, only online forms, so be very careful if you decide to use that 0800 number. ie. don't give any personal details over the phone.

It's better to use their official support lines:
Problems signing in to your account
Having trouble signing in?

Do you have a link to the customer care page you used? There are lots of scammers out there pretending to be google support.

I am having some problems with the Gmail application and Notifier as of late. Basically the Gmail Desktop Notifier I have is unable to connect to my Gmail account.

A quick run down of what I know.

* No matter what web browser you tell Gmail to use as the default, it always goes through IE to access your Gmail account.

* The notifier doesn't actually use POP3 or IMAP to the best of my knowledge, meaning if something is messed up with IE/Gmail the application won't work correctly.

* I can access my Gmail account from any non-IE browser (but can't use the notifier).

*I can technically access my Gmail account from IE, but I have to clear my cache/cookies to do this and every time I reboot the problem returns and I can no longer access Gmail from IE.

* I have both Gmail and IE set up to use SSL2 encryption, makes no difference enabled or not.

* I have tried uninstalling the notifier, removing all traces of it from my system, clearing IE's cache/cookies, and reinstalling with no luck.

* I have reset IE7 to defaults and this made no difference.

* I have tried without a firewall/AV active

* Using a fully updated XP Pro SP3

* This is a new problem that has plagued only my last few reformats, even though I am using the same disk as I have for a while and have never had this problem previously.

* I am using an nLite disk, but it has worked fine for at least 10 reformats before I started having problems.

I got curious about the gmail drive shell extension application, so I installed it and it worked just fine while at university (ethernet wired connection, very fast). Today I was home and saw I couldn't open gmail. It said 502 Server Error.

SO I uninstalled gmail drive extension, and deleted all cookies, temp files, ran registry cleaning. Then restarted.

Upon restart, I STILL got that 502 server error.

What could be the problem? I would rather not do system restore because I have installed a lot of programs since then, and really don't feel like redoing it. But I don't know how I could fix the problem manually.

If anybody has any suggestions, please. Thanks!

From a list I am on, It looks like there is a huge security flaw in Gmail.

-------- Original Message --------
Subject: Gmail exploit
Date: Fri, 29 Oct 2004 20:26:54 -0400
From: Adam Fields <[email protected]>
To: [email protected]

For Politech, if you like

There's a Gmail exploit that allows an attacker to steal your Gmail cookie, which thereafter identifies them as you to the system, even if you change your password.

This seems like a huge problem for Google, above and beyond the actual security breach. Remember that Gmail uses the same unlimited lifetime Google cookie. The data in that cookie is, presumably, extremely valuable for their tracking efforts, and I'd guess that this will be difficult for them to fix in a way that maintains that.

The hacker then hacked my account again and this time changed my Battle.net address along with the password. He also attempted to steal my hotmail at this point in time. I then began to look for keyloggers and viruses with hijackthis and various virus programs including Spybot, Kaspersky, Microsoft Security Essentials, and MalwareBytes.

Gmail supports importing contacts from CSV format so you need to export the contacts to a CSV file from XP then from the brower, log into gmail, click on Contacts then click on More->Import then click again on Import and select the CSV file.

Once you have setup the Gmail from Windows 8, the contacts should be there.

In the past I made the mistake to use my Gmail account to create a new Microsoft account (previously known as Microsoft Passport). At that moment everything worked like a charm. Reading mails on my WP8 was easy and worked as expected.
Then Google decided to boycott Microsoft. They made sure that it was almost impossible to connection to a Gmail account from a WP device. Luckily MS gave us a way to connect your Gmail to a Outlook.com account (as described here http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/gmail). Because my MS account used the same login (ex. [email protected]) as my Gmail account, this was a very easy way to fix things. I immediately did this and at first it did what it had to.
After a while I found it frustrating that my emails were now synced on 2 mailboxes using the same login. On my desktop (where I use Outlook 2015) I connect directly to the Gmail account and on my phone (now WM10) I can only connect to the Outlook.com one. This is annoying because when I read mails on my phone, they are still unread on my PC.
I read that it is now possible again to connect directly to Gmail on WM10. So I tried to add my Gmail account again. I then found out that this wasn't possible because there was already an account with the same login ([email protected]). Normally you can just delete the old account (Outlook.com) before adding the new one. But since my [email protected] is also known as my MS account, I can't delete it. It is tied to the account and will always connect to... Read more

Hi guys,
 
Last night i my mouse/screen froze up suddenly for about 5 seconds randomly and then i noticed my internet seemed a bit slower.
 
Call me paranoid but for some reason i started worrying about a hacker, did some research and now i am petrified.
 
I'm running Windows 7 and i did scans with Malware Bytes, Super Anti Spyware and boot time scan with Avast which all showed clean.
 
After i restarted my router/computer things returned to normal. I have Windows firewall running and i am behind a router.
 
The reason i am concerned is that i hadn't patched my Windows 7 OS security updates in ages (have done so now), and i know hackers can exploit these.
 
My question is, would a hacker hack my PC directly and is it possible to view my files remotely without installing malware or a RAT?
 
In other words, what are the chances someone had exploited my PC, took my files but after i restarted they were gone because there was no RAT installed?
 
Please forgive me if this is a dumb question..

Answer:Likelihood that i was hacked or am being hacked?

Hi ionblue The chances that you were hacked are really slow. It happens on every system and device that sometime, a process crashes, slowing down the whole system and that rebooting it allows it to restart normally. There's nothing wrong with that. This situation is way too common and the possibilities are way too broad to say that you were hacked. In my opinion, you just encountered a random crash, slowness and restarting your system allowed it to restart properly. Simple as that.

I already know that they can be fetched into outlook by outlook's very own service, forwarding would be faster, so..?! Also, since I now use outlook to send email on behalf of my gmail account, how do I make it sync each email I send using outlook with my gmail - so that gmail has it all?

TY in advance. Please do help.

hello
I hope someone can help me. I currently work as a Field Support Engineer for the Post Office, but I will soon be changing jobs and working for a local secondary school as Network Manager.
There appears to have been no documenting of the network as it has grown, as many different people have been administering at different times.
I would like your views on how to approach this situation, causing the least amount of disturbance to the network but enabling me to gather as much info as possilbe.

many thanks to you all in advance

Answer:{Advice offered} - Advice needed

Greetings

My advice: Go in on a weekend and re-install everything

Ok, now onto more practical advice:

Firstly, get a picture of the network. This means getting a floorplan of the buildings, walking around going from room to room, and writing down the number of PCs, the software OS (and service pack level, if applicable) installed, current hardware installed and the router they connect to.

Do the same for your servers. It is vitally important to know what hardware is in each PC, and what the specs of the PC are.

Next, you need to get a Logical map of your network. This is a picture of the IP addresses of the Routers, printers and servers (and workstations, if you are not using DHCP), and where the different subnet's are situated. You need to see what services are installed on your Servers (WINS, DNS, DHCP, IIS, Proxy etc). At this time, it is also a good idea to get a list of the accounts on the Server. You need to see which accounts are being used to run certain services, and make sure that only Service accounts are running those services. Next, you need to take away any user accounts that no longer correspond to people using the system (ie. if Mr Bradshaw last worked at the school 5 years ago, it is time to delete his user account). Ditto with any user home drives assigned to defunct users.

Lastly, you need to compile a list of discepancies. Look at your list created in the forst step, and get an idea of what a standard PC is (ie: Standard PC = at least Pent 200,... Read more

I need to theoretically network 4 PC computers for a class. The computers are currently running Win95. The specs of the computers are:

486/25 MHz processor, 80 MB hard drive, 8 MB RAM

486/66 MHz processor, 120 MB hard drive, 16 MB RAM

Pentium 75 MHz Processor, 120 MB hard drive, 16 MB RAM

Pentium 133 MHz processor, 1 GB hard drive, 32 MB RAM

Security is not important. Trying to find an inexpensive solution. The users will not be technical wizards.

Questions - What type of network would you recommend and why? What role would you assign to each of the four workstations and any other equipment you recommend? What type of upgrades might the workstations require to make your solution work?

please help me, thank you
 

Answer:{Advice Offered} - need advice for network

Well, I would put in one NIC per computer, use standard Windows 95 peer to peer networking. I would try to upgrade all machines to at least 32 meg RAM, but 16 would do if I couldn't manage 32.

Hell, I guess 8 would work, but it sure would be slow.

I would go with CAT5 patch cables and a small, inexpensive hub, to physically connect the machines. You could use BNC (coax type) cable and skip the hub, but hubs are so cheap now that I don't think that is a good idea.

As for roles - put all the shared files on the P133 since it has the most space and is the fastest.

Any advice please? POINT: Is it possible for someone hack my Broadband or wireless connection or PC and somehow make phone calls from their phone and charge me.

My friend keeps telling me my firewall is useless and he can come in through the way I go out, whatever that means.

Then one day about 2 weeks ago, my internet explorer 'experienced a problem and have to close'. Then I noticed a higher than normal traffic start occurring on my internet meter.

Then a few days ago my friend says he can see all my files on my work server.

I did some checks:
Blink says it found a win32.Dloader and quarantined it.
Kapersky online scan found DarkSpykernel.sys and I moved and renamed it; then deleted 2 registry entries that mentions it.
Pandasecurity online scan found nothing.
I ran unhackme and it found nothing.

Also IE cannot access Pandasecurity.com, but firefox3 can.

hi, first i am a novice so i plead total ignorance.
i have recently bought a 2nd hand computer and logged onto the net, for a while it was fine but then it started.
my prob: when i dial up using my wireless connection i noticed the blue monitors going off in the connection status. without (me) surfing at all or opening my browser - over an hour it seems like 8-10 MBs has been transfered. i have turned off windows update i have zone alarm but its obvious when thats updating. when i installed kaspersky antihacker and looked at the connections being made i found various remote addresses, going on and off. (without me opening my mozilla)
i figured out how to block the packets with kaspersky, (i think) but then the remote addres would change, i would then block another, and this would continue for e.g 2 hours, and i am tired.
here is a list of some of the ip addresses i tried to block, - however for some reason after blocking these i could no longer surf , so i reverted to ZA and closed kaspersky.

Question: Hacked

I have recently downloaded tor after watching an interesting video on the deep Web and wanted to see it for myself. And I never looked anything up I only opened the browser. Later my email I use for the computer was attempted to be logged into from the Netherlands but I have to verify the login on my phone. But I assume this person is still in my system and might be activating my camera and/or mic. I would really like some help getting this person off my system so I can feel safe again.
