How To Cope If Your Computer Has Been Hacked

Hacker X (Computer Security Expert) gives expert video advice on: What should I do if I've been hacked?

What should I do if I've been hacked?

If you feel that you've been hacked, you should immediately disconnect your computer from any network that it's on, whether it's just a local network at home or it's on a larger network at your office. You should also assess what documents/information/data is on your computer and immediately back it up. At that point you should also then use or call in a professional to use diagnostic software that can actually look and see if your system software is intact, if anything has been modified or changed, and most likely you're going to want to preserve your data into a clean installation of the system software, upgrading everything, installing more security software, and then putting your data back on the computer.
