Frowns

4. Tracking a conman. Initiated by Brian Munyao Longwe

Can you pinpoint the location of a hacker using the IP address?


Flowers

“For starters, the IP addresses provided are on the subnet of Sure [now Smart] telecom.

That telecom company can help you identify the client…”

Frowns

“You basically have to "walk" the networking chain - to the point where you will get into a company and ask for the particular computer that sent out that communication request. Generally it comes down to how many routers did the request traverse by the time it was sent out thru SURE [now Smart telecom] - If your reaaaaaaaally lucky, the person is using their phone over GSM.”

 

“If the guy [hacker] was a little brighter, and decided to do it through a "tunnel"? You are definitely at the wrong IP!”

 

Conclusion/ Remarks

“Always use strong passwords i.e. alpha-numeric characters — including letters, numbers and where possible characters e.g. ‘1l0ve1ceCream!’”
