How To Track  Down  A Newbie Hacker 1
Tracking down a hacker isn’t very easy .You have to be smart and when i say smart , i mean very smart.
High class hackers are hardly caught because they keep their identity hidden, however i won’t go into
that now. Low class hackers are those that simply hack your site because there was a security flaw in your
system. i’ve searched around the net, the hackers here in nigeria are very dumb , if i must say.

They want to show off that they just hacked a site ,and put their email addresses ,facebook usernames and
even  their facebook pages so  that webmasters can easily contact them and  pay some money
to regain their sites back. I released a list of those who hacked the inec site  during the elections but
i later deleted it since i got many calls pleading with me to remove it. I removed the post from my site for
reasons best known to me however the post still exists on nairaland.com.

There are many ways to track down a hacker however i’m only going to drop the easiest methods as
the other methods are very complicated.

How To Track  Down  A Newbie Hacker 2

1. LOGIC
2. IP TRACKING.

1. LOGIC

This is all about taking time to think and analyse every part of the hacked site and
determine how best to track down the hackers. If there is an email address. Google the
email address and check other sites where they have been used. there is 80% possibility that
the email has been used else where. It might appear on  reappear on websites or forums or youtube comments.
If it pops up on facebook then you are 75% close to knowing who hacked your site.

Youtube comments and forums give you a hint of who the hacker might be.
Let’s assume [email protected] hacked your site and dropped this email.
Go to google and search for [email protected] and see what it brings up.
Don’t be deceived when you track down a hacker on facebook and his location shows it’s indonesia or
any other country, it’s just a way to deceive you.

Hackers use funny but deceptive names. You might see Something like Discr33tH8xor or H33TM8N,V3CT0R, as the name of the hacker shown on
your site . If you google it and nothing comes up just decrypt it.

DISCR33TH8XOR IS EQUAL TO DISCREETHAXOR
H33TMAN CAN BE DECRYPTED TO HEETMAN, HITMAN OR HEATMAN
V3CTOR IS VICTOR OR VECTOR

THAT IS 3=E OR I
AND 8 = A OR AT

depending on where it is used.

If there is something like fb.m3/discr33th8xor type www.facebook.com/discr33th8xor on google then search. if nothing comes up then decrypt it.

To be sure that it’s a hacker that you’ve detected go to his photos and review the pics there. You must see hacking related pictures and if you come
across any hacking related image and he tags some certain people compare the names written on your blog to those he tagged. There’s a possibility that it might
match.

Unless the hacker hid his friends, go to his friends list and check the top 5 peole on his list. Facebook algorithm works in a way that those you interact with
most appear at the top of your list. Hackers interact more with hackers. If that’s done then you’ve caught the hacker.

2. IP TRACKING

This method is not effective most times because people can change their ip. A hacker with a Nigerian Ip like 45.345.789.908 can easily change to 193.087,786 which might be a us or
canadian ip. all you have to do is to check the last time a page in your site was accessed and check the last time your blog was loaded by an ip before it went down.I hardly use this service but it’s worth
a try . the ip that reoccurs most is probably the hacker. to use ip tracking services just type ip trackers on google ,select your preferred service and follow their setup instructions carefully.

HTC reveals sales from 2019 so far. The decline continues.

How To Track  Down  A Newbie Hacker 9

HTC shared its results for the month of October and are not encouraging for Taiwanese manufacturer. October generated only $ 21 million in revenue, most of which comes from mobile phones and the rest from other business as virtual reality (HTC Vive).

By comparison, HTC generated 41 million in revenue during September following the introduction of some entry-level models. However, October registered a decrease of 48% with an annual decrease of 49% compared to the same period in 2018.

Over the past year, HTC has laid off about 25 percent of its employees as a measure to cut costs. It is already well known that HTC is the brand that is suffering the most in the mobile phone market, even more so than LG and Sony, which have lucrative deals in other markets such as televisions, for example.

HTC’s new CEO has already admitted that the company has stopped innovating

This year marked the departure of Cher Wang, the company’s longtime CEO, being replaced by Yves Maitre. The new CEO admitted in a September interview that HTC simply “failed to innovate in mobile phone hardware.”

The CEO added that companies like Apple, Samsung and Huawe did a great job of keeping their equipment relevant, something HTC has failed to do. Maitre says it was due to the investment of resources and time in virtual reality.

However, we know this is “throwing sand at the eyes”. In addition to lack of innovation, HTC continued to drive unattractive pricing at its top end, failing to win back the European and US markets.

Google is investigating executives for allegations of harassment

How To Track  Down  A Newbie Hacker 10

No company has a perfect working environment, and Google does not escape this claim. Alphabet (Google’s proprietary business conglomerate) has hired an outside law firm to review sexual harassment cases at Google.

However, they are not company employees but high-level executives. From legal department officials to one of the founders of Android, cases are being investigated by third parties on suspicions that not enough action is being taken.

Some of the cases refer to 2013, and Alphabet intends to investigate the measures taken and possibly reopen the cases, if necessary.

David Drummond and Andy Rubin are the most media cases

Google lawyer and legal department leader David Drummond was recently involved in a sex scandal after his involvement with several colleagues was confirmed. Drummond cheated on his wife and had a son with Jennifer Blakely, one of the team’s lawyers.

Personal relationships between managers and team members are against Google’s human resources rules. However, the case was “muffled” as Blakely was simply placed in a sales department while Drummond retained his position.

As for Andy Rubin, one of the founders of Android, the case is more “pointy”. In 2013, Rubin allegedly convinced a co-worker to do her sexual favors in a hotel room. The case was exposed by the New York Times that led to Rubin’s departure from the company, with compensation of $ 90 million.

In 2018, company employees spoke out

A year ago, several Google employees gathered in New York to protest how the company deals with sexual harassment. The protest includes officials not only from the US but also from England, Germany and Japan.

In response, Sundar Pichai stated at the time that about 48 senior employees of the company were fired on harassment charges. The situation does not seem to have improved as the Alphabet decided to take legal action and investigate the cases.
