How do you report defamation email from a John Doe using a yahoo email address?
John Doe sets up anonymous email with yahoo, goes to a public place to send demfamatory falsehoods about people in an organization. Doe accuses criminal actions by members and cautions me that I am liable to report criminal actions to authorities. I am the 3rd party recipient of the email; however, Doe likely is a member of the organization. Specific content stated by Doe is known by individuals in organization. In addition to acusations of criminal actions, Doe portrays certain individuals as diseased and uses intentional defamatory statements to cause people to resign. IP traces to public location; therefore, protecting Doe’s anonymous identity. Emotional distress resulted to accused individuals, leaving no recourse due to Doe’s anonymous identity. What recourse do individuals have when Doe chooses to mask false statements and defamation of character behind fake yahoo address. Free speech does not include defamation of private citizens. Any ideas?
He sounds like a coward, don’t worry about cowards.
How can I protect a forums from hacker attacks?
A year ago a hacker by the name of “Anonymous” has started attacking my friends forums by changing signatures into porn links. However as of last week, he has turn Malicious and completely override the site and downloaded a trojan and change every content into “sex”.
This attacker won’t stop. Even after changing administration codes, he won’t stop assaulting. Is there anyway to protect against him or track him down?
The host is I.P Board which is suppose to be strong against hackers and was used by many companies.
With extreme difficulty, and as a novice in the hacking world, probably impossible.
They will have protected themselves against detection and reverse attacks, so unless you engage the services of an experienced hacker with more talent than your attacker to target them, the only thing I can suggest is take down the forums, find a more secure server and start up new ones.
