Is there a sneaker?

Filed under: Unrelated — Celia Rexselin @ 1:27 pm

Was chatting with one of my friends when this happened. Ofcourse, I was using yahoo messenger and we were so much engrossed in the the conversation when she asked me why I sent her a particular “hi” message again.

I was surprised and told her that there isn’t a need for me to send a “hi” to anyone when you are already conversing with the person. Thats when we two started doubting whether some one was sneaking into her computer. Worse, the person had addressed her like how I usually used to address. Does this mean, that someone can actually look into all the conversations we are having with our pals?

For all this, we both had all kinds of firewalls and antivirus kits installed in our system. Wonder what is happening!!



  1. I haven’t heard like that.. before. If someone tries to login elsewhere then either their messenger or yours will be logged out, abruptly. May be due to network delay that person might have sent hi..!!.. just a speculation not a true reply.

  2. No Sujit. Its she who got the “hi” message from me and I never sent one that day. So.. there can’be a delay too. We guess it might be a virus or a hacker’s attempt.

  4. Hi,this happened to me too and then I was told that the sysadmin can peep and view your conversation, get your password etc. In my office the last asst syadmin was thrown out because of these activity. You better be careful. In Bangalore it is common knowledge that Networked computers can be snooped upon. If it happened at home or cyber centre then I dont know why.
