I get a number of interesting phone calls, or questions via email. A few months ago a woman called and wanted my help – she said the Government was spying on her through her computer. She was very worked up. She wasn’t exactly stable, I could tell. So I recommended that she unplugged her computer, and put it in the garage. She thanked me.
Then tonight I get an email from a person asking me, “If I remote desktop into a server on the Internet, I can’t be tracked, right?”
I explained to him that IP addresses are easy to track, and even the server he was connecting to had log files.
His next email said, “But I control the server, so I can delete the logs”.
Anyone see his logic in this?
Anyone think he can hide anything?
What was his incorrect assumption (there were a few, let’s see what you come up with).
