Right now is a good time for you to see a lawyer, explain the situation,
and find out exactly what you need to do to minimize your own liability
here. I think you are making an extremely grave mistake putting files on
another person's system for the purpose of damaging it -- no matter what
your reasoning is. You could be facing criminal charges.

Until you do see a lawyer I reccommend you stop all your attacks on that
person's system.

It is pretty clear you need to do a better job of securing your own system.
