    My ex-husband
    ok, so I sound paranoid, but I have every reason to be:

    EX HUSBAND (EX IS OPERATIVE WORD) IS IN THE INDUSTRY

    (Apple, SEAGATE, WESTERN DIGITAL, INTEL, MOTOROLA, QUANTUM ETC).
    He was running my Network with Ethernet, FireWire, Apple AirPort, Bluetooth PAN, VPN, ULTRA VNC, and (as yet) Untitled VLAN. He also had set up PPPoE, TCP/IP, DNS, WINS, 802.1X etc. I was never in control of my MacBookPro, neither could the
    so-called genius in blue tee shirts get a handle on WHAT is going on.

    Mr. Ex was, and or may still be running a proprietary copy of OS X
    Remote. My life for the last five years a living ****.
    Apple has " helped". Any and all third party apps that could be found
    support this operation. I have spent countless hours and many
    thousands of dollars trying to skirt this issue. I bought a Sony
    computer. The drive "broke". I have dropped out of MASTERS program.
    Comcast told me to go to AT & T. We installed new routers and modems.
    I took to answering my mail at the Public Library. I have cried. Stayed up all night and lost much if the last four years to insanity and paranoia, and log keeping. I am h a victim of the worst kind of abuse: GASSLIGHTING, and they said it could' be done).

    Finally after logging in as a Webmaster in/on his domain, (not bad for
    NO training, showing up in his controlled environment, self-taught through
    what I could learn from various logs, etc: [B](I have
    Remote Install, Sync., 3 servers, partitioned drives and Mobile apps, multiple administrators) etc., EVEN THOUGH I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DO THIS,

    I do not speak Apache, java, HTML, Linux, or even Fortran or Hex. And
    Yet Apple would be astonished to see what they could see, if they would only see. Becoming a Power User and WEBMASTER, getting a handle on my
    "GOOGLE" e-mail and domain admin and up the kerobos key-chain.

    HELP ME, Mister Wizard...I want to uninstall ANY ability to access my system from a remote location and I need a secure e-mail. I also do not any infared signals and or detection. I am happy to hard wire it all. Oh, also I want to see what logs, mail, documents, photos etc are being burned on a disk, that MY COMPUTER won't allow me to copy or even see....

    any ideas ? anyone for hire ? thanks

    Hi and welcome to the forums.
    Sorry to hear of the Ex doing what he is.
    Best bet and easiest way to rid it all is to wipe the HD and do a complete clean install of the OS.
    So that brings us too, what year model Mac do you have?
    What is the current OS running on it ??


    Cheers

    yes, high up in manufacturing, hardware, software, any and all apps , legal and illegal, if he can't do it, he knows who can, has copied everything he wants, and is running a "ROOT-KIT",[/B][/B] I am sure, even though I have gone to APPLE many times, they just say it can't be done without physical access, well if he is running my network, through another apple computer HE BUILT, and build dates etc I don't think a silly thing like passwords is gonna bother him...he has serial numbers and build dates etc.

    I have put a new drive inand reloaded everything but "lost" (misplaced) the clean-up washing machine, and installed a bigger better faster brand X drive

    Don't forget us us E-Discovery people in law firms! oh yes, THAT too: this is the five year plan on divorce....

    That's what I was thinking. The simple way to take care of any potential problem like this is just wipe the drive - do a clean install and manually pick and choose what files and apps you bring back over.

    I'll admit - I had to look up gaslighting.

    I've also moved this to its own thread rather than resurrect a questionable 7 month old thread.

    From wiki
    SIGTERM is the default signal sent to a process by the kill or killall commands. It causes the termination of a process, but unlike the SIGKILL signal, it can be caught and interpreted (or ignored) by the process. Therefore, SIGTERM is akin to asking a process to terminate nicely, allowing cleanup and closure of files. For this reason, on many Unix systems during shutdown, init issues SIGTERM to all processes that are not essential to powering off, waits a few seconds, and then issues SIGKILL to forcibly terminate any such processes that remain.

    I'm confused as well. This topic you would think would be a serious matter to the OP...yet we get these confusing posts & off topic "cutesy" references.

    @parks' pippin: Stick to the topic and please answer all questions so folks can help you out. If this thread continues to be too "mysterious" and confusing...this thread may not last much longer.

    SIGTERM is a signal sent to a process to end it. Where are you seeing this?
