One of the girls in our office has just dumped her boyfriend. He is not happy about this and has threatened that he will hack into her email and access all the emails in her mailbox. He has told her that all he needs is her email address and he can do this with some software that he has. Apparently he has done this before to someone else.
I know nothing about hacking. Can anyone enlighten me? Is it possible to do this?
We have a soho firebox. The only thing being allowed in is UltraVNC which comes through on various ports which are forwarded to different PCs. The VNC server on those PCs is using a DSM plugin encryption with a software key, and a password.
How would he try to get in? or can they intercept emails on the internet?
How does this all work?
(Layman's terms please...)
