IP and Email tracing is an investigation tool we use to locate the source of any ongoing investigation. There are many reasons to track the real IP address or email sender. It is an uncomfortable truth that every time someone logs onto a website, FTP, sends an email or submits anything online, that the servers controlling that digital action are recording everything they can about that person, their computer, IP address and much more. IP tracking can be made tricky when a user uses Virtual Private Servers or Networks (VPS), but this can still be traced to the original IP address when they are using a proxy to cover their identity. Our internet forensic experts can assist with IP and email tracing to assist on any ongoing investigation.
Even web-savvy attackers or adversaries have no idea what information they are leaving behind. Just by leaving a comment or setting up a website “anonymously”, using a proxy before accessing — all of these things do not mean much for anonymity. Websites, blogs, emails, PDF’s, word documents and pretty much anything else which is accessed through a computer or is shared online can be traced back to its original source.
Our cyber forensics team utilises our own in-house forensics software to extract all information available. Following the breadcrumbs left by your adversaries, we are then able to find where it came from and most importantly, who they are.
You know you have a pre-planned and well organised defamation campaign against you when the attacks come from anonymous sources who take the time and expense to hide their identity. Note: we do not resolve matters relating to the Anonymous group. Anonymous defamation can usually be traced to a competitor, upset ex-employee or a relationship gone wrong. Despite the “reasons” for this attack, it is considered unethical (and even unlawful) practice for the attacker to incite such a campaign against a person, brand or company, as upsets can always be resolved with mediation, communication or even in the courts. Our team provides 2 primary services for anonymous online hate campaigns. These include:
- Locating the source of the attack, providing evidence of their actions, and if applicable, who is funding the attack.
- The suppression of all online content which has defamed you, your company or brand, to restore your online reputation.
Time may heal the problem In many cases, internet reputation slander will die out, if it is coming from a single source. To continue an online hate campaign, it requires a lot of time and even financing. If you have just noticed a lot of bad reviews, anti-brand threads in forums, negative comments, hate blogs etc. then before you pounce in a rage of fury, try waiting it out and ask about our promotional services to demote these search results. However, if the problem continues to persist, then realize you have a bigger issue at hand. To stop the continuous stream of negative content, you will need to rapidly locate who is behind it and then follow up with a search reputation campaign to restore your name.
