Computer is thoroughly compromised since day one
Got a brand new MacBook and know machine is 'owned' by
others ---who I cannot shut out or eliminate.
Hardware wise came with 120 GB Hard Drive(but only discovered
this when I re-installed Snow Leopard OS (10.6.6)...original disk
was I believe 10.5.6 and disk utility told me it was something
like 111 GB.
Have stuck with Snow Leopard and can use computer but know
I am being hacked by at least several networks and cannot
clean up the machine.
I use a wired etherenet connection theoretically but task manager
shows Airport Express and a Window Server and know that
Mobile Me is active...
Have tried software(Disk Warrior) and Mac's Original OS system
utilities(and Snow Leopard also) to try to erase hard drive but
cannot...Have spent a fortune on antiviral programs(Symantec
and BitDefender) but cannot find or run these programs.
Know a tad of Unix and have tried to use Terminal but whoever
controls this Mac won't let me "sudo'.
Am going crazy and would appreciate any/all suggestions
---have run diagnostic disk that came with unit and cannot
Am wondering if I replace hard drive with a new one could I
lose whoever possesses this machine but query if I can format
a new hard drive with either original disk for OS or Snow Leopard.
Do not use firewire or bluetooth or wi-fi and turn off (Network)
everything but ethernet.
HELP...really need unit...lastly suspect my home is hacked by
powerline hacking and get strong RF...the latter two has
completely destroyed two desktops PC's and three laptops(PC).
Only the Mac (compromised) continues to work albeit "I know
I am not alone."
Lastly re-install system monthly but can use "Journaled MAC
OS' format" FYI my /dev contains about 100 entries which
I delete (tty0s1, vn0's, bluetooth-modem-CPU") but come
back when I re-install Snow Leopard from DVD. Suspect
a bot ??????
Is this a good question?
