    hey everyone I just got a range extender so i was going to hook it up and tried calling tech support for net gear, i got on the phone with this guy and he was controlling my computer, he then said my mac has been compromised? The whole reason i was on the phone with these guys is because i have an airport extreme and the range extender was not connecting with the airport. this . I think he was trying to get money out of me because he didnt even help me fix my range extender problem. I dont even think he worked for netgear. but here is a screenshot of what he said was hacked. thanks guys

    I don't know if you got hacked or not, but just to be safe you should change your passwords especially to your wireless network. It's better being safe than sorry.
