How do you reply to a company that has hired you to find out who hacked in to their bank account?

You reply with the name.

Click on reply, then just type in the name. Or maybe you have to click on the e-mail itself first, and/or scroll down... but I don't think so.

Just write the name of the guy, and send.

Should do it.

I've managed to sort that out but I have a new problem. I gave the nameof the account holder but unfortunately the employer says that although the money is in the particular account, it is not the thief. Furthermore I can not find any traces of the money being moved out of that particular account.

Maybe it wasn't moved out of, but instead moved into?

Uh, what?

The money transfer was traced from the original owners account to the ccount in question. The employer says that they are not responsible so I try another aproach. I decided to trace the computer of the person who effected the transfer. I checked accross 2 computers and found a third which the connectionhad been bounced from (i-Squared internal services). I hacked it and checked the logs. There was no trace of a bounce on the data which the hack occured and furthermore, there were no access logs which indicated that the log had been deleted. Help!

This is probably a stupid question, but did you try Log_UnDeleter on all the logs on the third machine?

First off, make sure you know whom you are after:

If the mission calls for you to report the name of the person who RECEIVED the money, then you hack the account that the money went into and view the account info. Report that name.

If the mission asks you to report the name of the hacker who executed the transfer, then go on with your log tracing. And the previous reply is correct - you want to undelete every log in order to expose any modified entries. Undelete is also an unMODifier.

If neither of these works - abandon the mission and move on.
