Can someone please help clarify this for me?

I was told by one of my friends that they got someone who knows how to hack, hack a certain persons computer.

This person has had no physical contact with the computer they supposedly hacked.

This person was able to get their e-mails and view their history and which websites they viewed for and how long they viewed then for.

Is this possible to do? I want to find out if I'm being lied to or not. I've seen these supposed e-mails.

If you can access to someones computer you can get whatever information you want out of it. If your target isn't too security conscious it's not only possible but really fairly trivial to get some piece of malware on their pc that gives you remote access.

However, if all you've seen is email it's possible they only have access to an email account.

Thanks for your reply,

However. This computer that was hacked was halfway around the world from the hacker. The hacker knew the address of the person because the person who got them to hack it is sort of friends with "victim" as you could say. But, this person who asked them to hack the victim, has never had psychical contact with the computer. So, is it still possible?

In short; Yes.

Physical access or proximity is not a requirement.
If you can access to someones computer you can get whatever information you want out of it.
The absence of any reference to 'physical' in that sentence intentional. :smile:
