Hacked Email...What Can I Do?

Recommended Posts

My friends email account was hacked last year.Theres been an investigation by Windows Live, and they have now reset his password, and provided him with access.He's just checked his sent items, and theres some career destroying sh*t thats been sent from his account...Is there anyway to obtain the IP address of the sent messages??? Or anything that can be done to find the senders location or anything of use???

I think its one chi chi from work, but need some solid proof to show the compliance department...If he gets sacked, then thats gonna cost him p's to get back to the UK, which will be some nice revenge..

Nah, it happened to my housemate...Under normal circumstances, getting him sacked wouldnt be much, but in our case, its a BIG deal..Think of some the costs he'd have:Flight back to the UKTransfer furniture to the UKPay rest of lease for housingPay off credit cards etc..He'd be f*cked for the next few years

He doesn't wanna use the account at all at the moment...basically, some emails have been sent to an external company, detailing inhouse operations, procedures and personnel details..In investment banking, thats a BIG nono..Whoever it is, has actually one all out to try and f*ck up my bredrin..

Oh seen, not sure what can be done, other than tell the truth, hes job obviously means alot to him, and people around him, i dont think he would risk losing his job like that when these are some of the consiqunces.Only option to do is explain, tell the truth.Report to microsoft as well, cant do any harm.

Do live mail support HEADERS on outgoing mail?Cause that way you can find out the email address/hostname used for that sent mail.So have a look that way.Headers are supported on INCOMING by default. But maybe they do sh*t for outgoing.
