Tracked after hacking ex-boyfriend AIM acct

Specs: Macintosh
I hacked my ex(abusive) boyfriends aim
account, and created a fake account to harass
him. I know it was a stupid idea and I am in
counseling for the mental breakdown I have
been having. But I overheard from a friend that
he is getting some computer smart friends to
track down whoever it was that
hacked/harassed him. Is it possible for them
to do this? And if so, how can I protect myself
from being tracked?

You cannot prevent being traced as every computer which connects to the internet has a unique, external "IP Number" so that the data you want to receive (eg a file download) can find it's way to the correct computer.

Anyway, your ex-boyfriend's mates will probably use the hacking data he already has in order to try and trace you, so there's little you can do in that event.

On the other hand, it may simply be a false threat - a joke at your expense.

If you are savvy enough to hack then you know how to create a "honey pot" on your system and bring his hacking to an abrupt halt.

I would go online and see what legal ramifications are to you. IE he hacks into your computer....goes into the honey pot.....his entire system goes down.....what is your legal responsibility?

Stop hacking him....and I doubt his buds will even be interested in his trying to track the hack.

I have a Macbook. Is there any type of software I can get to
prevent being tracked? I am not computer savvy at all, I merely
answered his security question correctly. Would resetting my
entire computer help? I am desperate and I am willing to do
anything in order to not be tracked.

Please don't say you "hacked" him. Hacking is a highly technical skill only granted to the patient of mind and heart.

I doubt he will be able to trace down if you guessed his password but he will surely suspect you if he knows you are the only one that could have known the answer to such a personal question.

As for not being traced in the future, use a proxy. Just google for "free proxy" if you don't know where to get one.
