World Wide Web | 7/13/2013 | STOCKPIRATE

Posted on 07/13/2013 4:05:34 PM PDT by stockpirate

In the past few months I have had several attempts on my PC from outside locations. It is always from the following GPS location, 37.4192 N 122.0574 W

If you google this it is a place in Southern CA.

Any info would be nice.

I see it being near Moffett Federal Airfield and that’s not in SoCal.

When I Googled the coordinates, I came up with Moffett Field near San Jose (Northern California) which is a Federal facility. It used to host a maritime patrol squadron, but now it’s mostly the NASA/Ames Research Center, IIRC.

How did you get lat/lon coordinates?

Isn’t Moffett where the president flies into and Google has their jets quartered? And it has many of those giant sat dishes outside?

How are you getting a GPS location? I could see an IP address, but not GPS coordinates.

You forgot to ask if a nice fatty was rolled up and ready to go also.

Some search engines chock on the N and W GPS suffixes entering the raw numbers with N being positive and S being negative, while E is positive and W is negative might help.

At first blush the building looks like a warehouse. I’d expect much more HVAC at a server farm.

Am maybe not qualified to post an answer but that has never stopped me before. I receive many attacks at my local. My protection always warns me this is maybe a spoof ip address. Ever consider that maybe the ip is a spoof and the attack actually came from somewhere else? Not saying this is what happened, just speaking of what happens most of the time when I am attacked.

"McAfee just says they stopped and intrusion attempt on my PC."

That's your problem. Your PC is infected with McAfee. I had that problem once. McAfee is a son-of-a-gun to get rid of. It took me several months.

There were at one time four major interconnect points for the internet and one was housed in a windowless building at Moffett Field. All internet traffic went through those hubs. If I was going to install an internet monitor I would connect it there.

I call BS on your software being able to identify the GPS of the actual device that is supposedly hacking your computer. It is the GPS of something but who knows what.

Have you tried changing your external IP to see if it stops? You may want to firewall everything on your box and see what pops notifications if anything, asking for permission to access the web.

Oh, I see.

The problem is your computer is infected with CaFe.

Get a real tool like F-Proto.
