How to trace skype hacker's IP?

[ Edited ]

Hi, my Mum's skype has been hacked by an idiot who sends out rude messages to my mum's connections, he can see in real time what my mum types and when the discussion was to create a new skype account because of the hacked account, he/she warned my mum via a live message on the screen written "by herself" that "you can make a new account, I will hack you anyway :happy: "

 

 

as my mum is a very nice person, it is obvious for me that a stupid **bleep** is behind this hack who enjoys screwing up other people's life.

 

I need your advice how to trace the hacker's IP, so I could walk in to the local police station and tell them that this is the guy who is sending out rude messages from my mums skype account. In the first time it's started with smiles, but now his messages became very offensive and rude against other people.

 

thank you

It sounds to me like your mum's computer has been infected beyond Skype. She should change her Skype password right away, but then I suggest you see this link for steps in disinfecting her PC completely.

I think if you can consider their activities as a form of threat or harassment, you can indeed report them to your local police.  Then the police can contact Skype (admins here says that police most likely already have their way to contact Skype) for the possible information that they may need in their investigation.
