stop internet account hack

I have installed NMAP in my KUBUNTU 6.06 system

But I am not able to use it

Actually i think my internet a/c is being hacked.

Whenever I am logging in huge downloads occur which are NOT done by me.Log in/out times dont match with session history records.

I have complained to MTNL my service provider a number of times but no fruitful action was taken.

To use some nmap features you must have root access!

About your a/c beeing hacked, well, try to configure your firewall. Post some more details about how you connect to the internet, it will help us to help you!
