To make a long story short I was playing an online game and there was a display glitch and I was shown sensitive information I shouldn't have seen. I realize I am being vague, but it is because I don't want to be sued for libel. As of now I have no solid proof, just my word against theirs. They have no reason to believe me, because what I am saying sounds absurd even to me.


When I contacted the sites support. They told me the problem I described was absolutly impossible, they just wont believe me, or they don't want to admit there is a flaw in their system. But i know what I saw with my own 2 eyes. I'm trying to think of a way that I can go back and prove what I saw, actually happened. I want proof and I don't know how to find it, or even if it is possible.

So is display data stored somewhere on my computer? Or perhaps on my ISP's? I didn't think at the time of the occurrence to use a screen capture.

This is not what actually happened, this is just a hypothetical scenario; Say I was playing an online racing game and my car morphed into a dog, but nobody else saw it. Can I go back into a temp file and prove to someone that this actually occured?This is not what actually happened, this is just a hypothetical scenario

I know I'm grasping at straws here, and I'm not sure this data is even retrievable, but i just thought i would ask people that know more about computers then me. I also know that the name of the program would be very usefull. but like I said I dont want to get into naming names till I have solid proof. This kind of information could be damaging to their reputation, and i don't want to get sued. Like I said before I have no proof. So I'm not going to tell you names, even in a private message, nor even hint. So can it be done, or should I just insist it happened, if they don't believe me, thats their own stupid arrogance, and move on?

Welcome to Geeks to Go.

I'm sorry to say it doesn't look like you will be proving anything. Your only way would have been to take a screen shot like you mentioned. That data was never at any time written to your HDD so there would be no way to recover it.
