Hi,

I am 99% certain that my Computer has been "Unlawfully accessed on many occasions using "URL Manipulation Attacks." It started deleting stuff on my computer, then altering option settings and other parameters on various programs. I believe I know the identity of the major mainstream outlet doing it, but that's another matter. Has anyone got advice?

If you ask me, you are contributing to the HACK community, as no one that USES the internet will find this useful, except for hackers! This does not a thing to help the END USER. If you wanted to educate the end user, explain how they need to look at the browser window PREVIEW to see where the Link goes, but no mention of that! BUT, it does explain HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY PULL OFF this kind of attack by malicious groups!

Well, the post will do nothing, as it explains what is happening, and how to use counter measures on the SERVER SIDE. You have no control over the server side, so have fun reading! The article will do nothing for a fix!

YOUR PC cannot be manipulated by ALTERED URL'S!

The best advice that I can give you is, never browse the internet using a USERNAME that has ADMIN privileges on the PC. That way, if you happen to be TRICKED by a website while looking for free software, the website will not be able to INJECT any malicious code. If it does, you will get an alert that says it is TRYING TO CHANGE YOUR PC, and gives you a chance to say NO!
