      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

      PLEASE READ - Reversing upgrade   02/23/2017

      We have found that this new upgrade is somewhat of a disaster.  We are finding lots of glitches in being able to post and administer the forum.  Additionally, there are new costs associated with the upgrade that we simply cannot afford.  As a result, we have decided to reverse course and go back to the previous version of our software.  Since this will involve restoring it from a backup, we will lose posts that have been added since January 30 or possibly even some before that.    If you started a topic during that time, we urge you to make backups of your posts and you will need to start the topics over again after the change.  You can simply paste the copies of your posts that you created at that point.    If you joined the forum this month, you will need to re-register since your membership will be lost along with the posts.  Since you have a concealed password, we cannot simply restore your membership for you.   We are going to backup as much as we can so that it will reduce inconvenience for our members.  Unfortunately we cannot back everything up since much will be incompatible with the old version of our software.  We apologize for the confusion and regret the need to do this even though it is not viable to continue with this version of the software.   We plan to begin the process tomorrow evening and, if it goes smoothly, we shouldn't be offline for very long.  However, since we have not done this before, we are not sure how smoothly it will go.  We ask your patience as we proceed.   EDIT: I have asked our hosting service to do the restore at 9 PM Central time and it looks like it will go forward at that time.  Please prepare whatever you need to prepare so that we can restore your topics when the forum is stable again.

Someone monitoring my web activities and my box

Hi, here is a mac user, i cannot use HijackThis therefore, and i have a biiiig issue with an hacker, ongoing from at least 11 months.

Let's describe it somehow.

I was learning to use ssh connection and rsa and dsa encryption, (which is not that safe i know if you do not kwon how to use it). While that a friend of mine, who was giving me some web space on his server, told me something like, why don't you connect again to my website? i will speed up the connection with i new software.

I shouldn't have had trust in him but i was not used to be the target of such a behavior. Anyhow EVERYTHING started to happen. In two months i was inscribed in a bag of social network with my account, my real accounts were changed, i was going mad about it.

 

Then i just made a reset of the system and installed MACOSX again. It went better, but my printer is not working any more, it gives problem of software compatibility, when before it was perfectly working. I don't know why.

 

I know there is still something on my hard drive, i'm searching for an host file, but i do not know where to start.

 

Then, the last, but not for importance, is that i meet that guy again, this time in reality. I have a HSDPA USIm connection, and it was perfectly working, but then that guy had the phone number of my sim and it became a hell. The connection is not working any more, and he just doesn't let me go to sites that he doesn't want me to go. This because he wants me to do what he wants me to and that's all. It's terrible, im aware he does know everything i do on the web....

 

I feel like there is no escape and my family doesn't know anything about this. I have to solve it by myself.

Please help.

You will probably need to go to a Mac forum for help... We deal with PCs here and most of what you are saying doesn't even make sense in working with PCs... Without a log to sort it out, it is unlikely that we will be able to even find the problem... Without knowing about Macs, I would probably totally wipe the hard drive, reinstall the operating system and start over... If the problem persists after that, it is likely it involves online accounts, so I would then cancel those accounts and start over...

 

Keep in mind that if your computer is networked with other computers in your home and you are correct about this person hacking your system, this person probably also has access to your families other computers and any personal information on those computers, including bank accounts and such... If that is the case, you need to talk to them about this since everyone is in financial danger...

I did, but they are some kind of skeptical in this sense. I don't exactly know how to make them understand that information security is important. I will try again. And thank you, you're the first one who gives me the reason...

;)
