    I had a friends Email account get hacked into over the weekend and sent some nefarious shit over the contact listings. It was done under the email login and password, but what I need to find out if exactly how can I pinpoint the location of the originating terminal that sent the email.

    I already checked the headers though Outlook express and I narrowed down a Few ISP addresses already. I conducted a DNS reverse lookup already and I think I narrowed down the town, but Im not sure if I got this right.

    This was through Yahoo and I know they leave digital fingerprints all over that shit, so I need some help to find out exactly what I can do about this.

    I talking names and addresses.

    Probably, but I've been doing some playing around with the Various ISP's that I have been digging up in the header information, and many of them direct to the Yahoo servers in California.

    However, the originating address traces to a provider located in Tyler Texas.

    Hopefully that might lead somewhere. I did a lookup on my own email that I sent to myself and I can pull up Houston Texas as the originating computer, but then I tried it on a friend I know whos in Houston and there shit pulled up being in New Jersey. :wtf:

    I dunno, but this shit is difficult as fuck to do. I'm contacting Yahoo and hopefully they will be able to help me out.
