View Full Version : Covert psychological computer harassment

What techniques and tactics would you use if you were to write your own clever psychological harassment suite? Most will require a fairly solid understanding of reverse engineering software and networks as well as computer hardware.

Install Vista on their PC.

Snatch cant you come up with something more "harassing" ?

The things you describe are not harassment, they are inconvenient.
Those things are already compiled in most software.

Now if it were me and I wanted to be a "real" psy-op, I would use the pre-installed wireless transmitter included in any computer and make it start transmitting neural wave patterns of the user. Once you have gathered enough from your TI, THEN you start your harassment campaign.

Just cant go out all willy nilly harassing people with out the correct weapons, and to know which weapon will work you need to analyze the brain wave patterns to custom tailor your harassment.

You psy-op wanna-be's can be irritating at times. Lay off the Haldol and start thinking for once in your life.

And use Vista, it has all kind of nasty stuff in it.

Anyone remember the virus that made a pitch noise, like a mosquito that produced headaches? I think it was the Techno.com virus.

Shouldn't we install a dream analizer and then develope a program which only talks to the user while he/she's sleeping and screws with their mind and convinces them that they have to be crazy to think that their computer could be talking to their subconscious mind while they are sleeping?

I hear the theme music from "The twilight Zone" playing in the background.

Well my friends, I was only talking about static psy ops as opposed to the more dynamic version Woodmann describes. There are universally harassing techniques that would be considered harassment to anyone. Most people would agree that constant inconvenience amounts to harassment. I did leave out one very important aspect - covert computer surveillance.

So what you want is just lame crap to annoy people........

OK, I'll play along.

How do you want to begin your harassment campaign?
Remotely,email,redirection,telephone,chat scripting, or direct involvement?

To what level do you want to escalate this to?
Just to be an irritating prick, surveillance, intelligence gathering or damage?

And to what level do you want to attain?
Irritate, minor damage, major damage or destruction?

From your first post it seems to me you just want to be an irritating prick which you can easily achieve by using Google.

So if thats what you want, take a shit in a paper bag, place it on the perps doorstep, set afire and ring the doorbell or knock.

Oh ya, run if you want but its much better to take a few steps back and enjoy the scene.

When your ready to go hardcore, you let me know.

Not joking.

Those are some very nasty pranks! Thanks for the thoughts Woodmann - as you point out I was thinking about things from a very simplistic point of view. As you point out, without a real purpose or strategy what is the point really. It is just being lame or irritating.

Oh Oh!!! Now we've blown our cover and we will have to "terminate him with extreme prejudice" !!!

Just messing around with some ideas since after all I do enjoy and respect the community here (even JMI and his thought provoking ideas ). And in hindsight, Vista User Account Control (UAC) is the perfect example.

Careful. That sounds like a hate crime.

Nah! Just Movieland "CIA SPEAK". None of the CIA guys I knew used such language. Mayby it's how those in the "home office" attempt to avoid actually describing what they plan to do, so it won't sound to drastic.

How about installing a "Political Correctness Check" in his copy of Office, oh wait - shit they're already working on that at (REDACTED).

Simple but effective, there is always the random beep.

Years ago on an old multi user *nix system I wrote a small C program to print a backspace at random times and had found a way to pipe the output to someone's tty. Very annoying.

Could always flash the screen at 10-12 hz and potentially trigger seizures.
Maybe very carefully move the desktop icons very subtly every once in a while.
If at work turn the sound on loud and blast Pr0n movie through speaker.

Years ago I was working in an engineering office with several constantly dieting women, I wrote a TSR for my computer that on a keystroke combination 10 or so seconds later started a siren sound and flashed "DIET VIOLATION" in alternating colors, why the 10 second delay? so I wouldn't be in the office when it went off.


And I wonder why I'm unemployed!

Emphasis on "years ago" .

Take a screenshot of the desktop window and then create a window over the top of it, displaying the screenshot so they don't know they're f.u.b.a.r and then use BlockInput to prevent Ctrl+Alt+Del or Alt+F4 closing it off. The average user would simply reset the box, dunno if you could do anything with an autorun usb stick.

At college I used to set a screenshot of the desktop as the desktop background and then delete the icons. That really confuses people who aren't too good with computers

That my man is fucking clever .
