Im no hacker but i find PC security issues very interesting. Steve Gibson runs a GREAT website about internet security. Im not sure if this has been posted here before, but here is a lengthy, yet VERY interesting, page where he talks about him being attacked by a 13 yr old hacker and his quest to stop it. His website also has great tools for checking your PC for vulnerabilities. im happy to say that my PC is virtually invisible to any hacks http://grc.com/dos/grcdos.htm If you do read this, pls let me know what you think.
