    WOuld it be possible for someone to gain access from having access to a cracked p.c. then gettign a keylogger. Once the intruder has the linkshare password he then could log in, insert and/or modify a script which would give them future access. Once this is done the intruder could log into the linkshare panel and could substitute the suers address so that the intruder would receive the check instead of the user?


    >>>>>> THIS IS NO WAY A FACT!!! It is only a question that came to mind and hasen't had much though. The idea of this post is to ask the question: Is this possible? <<<<<<

    Everything is possible concerning someone hacking on anyones computer!

    If you have internet access your computer can be hacked and cracked!

    Just my 2cents!

    I agree with Nova .. if your connected to the internet .. your absolutely vulnerable to hacking. The question is ... do you have enough security in place to stop it.

    R,

    Yes, this is possible, and it is extremely easy to find out if this has happened to you. Simply go into the account and look. If the address for the checks is someone other than you, then you were hacked.

    If the payment report shows checks sent that you did not receive. It is possible you were hacked. I would contact Linkshare if they show checks sent that I did not receive.

    BTW: If you suspect that someone has hacked your account, you can go in to your account and change the password.

    As you seem to fear that someone is getting in all of your personal things. I would plan a periodic systematic change of all of my passwords. I would start by changing the password to the email server, then to my different accounts.

    When it come to security I'm gone retty mental to protect myself.... But before I new about it I could have been hacked.

    Now I use multiple proxies, 2 firewalls, anti-keylogger, anti-virus, anti-trojan & Worm

    I change my passwords very week or so. (a pain in the butt cause I have multiple databases but is still done).

    I have noticed though that I have not received my commssions and it said that I did. This is under investigation from linkshare presently though so I'm not sure what the deal is excatly.
