My IP address is hacked. What can I do?

Many readers of our website are contacting us for help on *allegedly* hacked IP address, and remedies for getting it back. One of the user is telling us his IP address used to be 64.3.x.y in Dallas and now it's 67.72.x.y located in Utah (per ip lookup); and hence his IP address is stolen, and his computer is running very slow and acting abnormal.

For a non-computer person, this may sound like a user's IP address has been hacked but in reality your IP address cannot be hacked. Chances are that you're getting your IP address dynamically from your Service Provider whom may be servicing multiple areas. When you disconnect from your ISP and reconnect to the Internet, you're getting a new IP address from your Internet Service Provider and this IP address may or may not be the same as previously assigned. This does not mean you're sharing this IP address with someone else, as you've just assigned a new IP address and your old IP address may have been assigned to a new person in Utah. As ISPs servicing multiple cities, they may allocate their IP address how ever they desire, and this may cause location of IP address to be incorrectly shown. Getting an IP address that shows remote location (Utah) does not slow down your computer, or cause it to act abnormal.

If your computer is acting slow or behave abnormal, you may have spyware or virus on your computer. Slowness of your computer has nothing to do with your IP address. You may wish to scan your computer for virus, and remove them.

If someone knows my IP address, can they hack my computer?

Depending on how your computer is connected to the Internet and the type of security in place, your computer may vulnerable for hack. In reality, chances of your computer being hacked from your known IP address is very unlikely. The trouble of hacker trying to gain access to your computer doesn't justify hacking into your computer unless you have billions of dollars in your bank account accessible from your personal computer. The most easiest way for hackers to gain access to your computer is through virus, not by attacking an IP address.

I have a static IP address. Can my computer (or server) hacked?

Having a static IP address doesn't increase the chance of your server being hacked, but vulnerable software and configuration may allow hackers to randomly attack your computer. Hackers learn known vulnerability on certain types of software, and using known vulnerability hackers randomly attack machines. Servers directly connected to the Internet are more exposed than the personal computers sitting behind the router with firewall. Unless you're a network professional managing servers, chances of your personal computer hacked is very small. Again, the easiest way to hack into your computer is by through a rootkit or virus.

    Hello Guys! I am Juliet Hilton. I live in Uk I’m 42 Years old, am so happy I got my blank ATM card from Calvin Grayson. My blank ATM card can withdraw £5,500 daily. I got it from Him last week and now I have withdrawn about £350,000 for free. The blank ATM withdraws money from any ATM machine and there is no name on it because it is blank just your PIN Only. It is not traceable and now I have money for business, shopping and enough money for me and my family to live on. I am really glad and happy I met Calvin Grayson because I met Five people before him and they could not help me. But am happy now Calvin Grayson sent the card through UPS and I got it in two days. Get your own card from him right now, he is giving it out for an affordable fee to help the poor even if it is illegal but it helps a lot and no one ever gets caught or traced. I’m happy and grateful to Calvin Grayson because he changed my story all of a sudden. The card works in all countries that is the good news if you are interested in getting yours : email: officialblankatmservice@gmail.com

    I would just like to add to the discussion that if you are the victim of a cyber-hijack, hackers take on all admin roles and make you a user. I know because I am and have been a “user” for over 2 months- on 4 computers, 2 phones and an iPad.

    Getting to the point, the IP address you see belongs to my hacker and not me. My hacker is on Verizon, and I have internet and phone service through Comcast. Although I called Comcast and got an IP address and I was able to put it in, his is the only one who shows up. I’ve changed my phone number 4X, iPhone 2x, and thoroughly checked for spyware with Certo. I even called the state where he lives and talked to Verizon and begged to be taken off his IP. No one does anything. It has happened with 4 phone numbers in a month.

    I don’t think your IP can be hacked, but I know it can be taken over and replaced with a hacker with self-assigned admin permissions.

      That has happened to us same companies too.  I found a port forward was created. I know who it is but can't stop we canceled internet service but ethernet port still connected to Comcast and will not release.  The person tracks us, uses our cell service.  We connect automatically.  I'm 9 cell phones down.  On 3rd laptop.  Uses an extender.  She recently said she was gonna kill me but police don't do anything.  3 or more years of this crap

    I’m Bella from New York, United States. I lost my job a few months back after my divorce with my wife. I tried everything positive to make sure I took good care of my kids but all failed, and I was in debt which makes everything worse. I was kicked out of my home and i had to live with my neighbor after pleading with her to allow me to stay with her for some days while I figured out how to get a home which she agreed to, but no one was willing to help anymore. I bumped into this page from google and I was excited about this, then I contacted the hackersBill Dean. I had just $200, so I pleaded with them to help me because of my condition but they never accepted. I believed in this, so I managed to pawn a few things and got $500. I ordered the $10,000 card and I got my card delivered to me by Ups 4 days later. I never believed my eyes! I was excited and upset as well, I managed to withdraw $2000 on the ATM and $2500 the second day. I went to Walmart and a grocery store and bought a couple of things for $3000. The card got blocked the third day and I contacted them and I was told it's a mistake from my end. I’m so happy, I have started all over again and have a good apartment with my kids you can contact him through is via email (officialhackingcompany@gmail.com)Visit there wesbite:https://officialhackingcom.wixsite.com/official
