Off topic, need computer help

Post by canerodscom »

Hi friends,

Someone with the web address 67.76.136.169 is trying to send a trojan horse to my computer. I suspect it comes from a webpage my daughter visits from this computer. Might you suggest a simple way to find out where it's coming from? I tried putting that number in Google to no avail.

Thanks,
Harry

Harry - here is the result from a DNS lookup on the IP address. It is part of a pool of IP addresses that Sprint assigns to it's DSL customers from Winter Park, FL. Buried in this report is a contact for reporting abuses. If you have the time and date they tried to hack you, report that to the abuse contact. Maybe they can pull the plug on the hackers account.

If you need to search out this kind of stuff, try using this link:
