|I have a small home network. I usually run about 3 computers, one for general internet browsing, one as a file server, and one for downloading. |
All but one have up to date antivirus as I rarely ever run the file server on the internet.
I have the errie suspicion that my main web surfing computer has been hijacked. When there is no one around My Documents seems to open on it's own, and Remote desktop pops up on my downloading computer.
Only my downloading computer has remote desktop server running on it not my web browsing one. All ports are firewalled through my router except for a few for the downloading programs. I really can't tell if it's happening to my downloading computer as I rarely ever sit down in front of it I mainly connect via remote desktop client.
I have always had my XP computer disabled so there can be no remote connections to it. I have never installed any remote servers on it either just a client.
I use Real VNC, for remote desktop, AVG antivirus, Spybot S/D and mostly firefox for a browser.
I have noticed My Documents opening before when I was doing some web surfing but what got me paranoid was the Remote Desktop poped up. I had all applications shut down but yahoo messenger and was going to shut down my computer, when I went into the kitchen to get something to drink I came back sat down and looked at my desktop and the client was connected to my downloading computer and a folder was open where I download my documents too. To get into my downloading computer via remote desktop, I also have to enter a password for it. What are my chances of forgetting I logged into the computer, opened a folder and left lol. I must be going nutz.
Nothing seems to be missing or arranged but I would like to know if there are any programs to detect if anything is hidden running on my computer that I cannot see.
Mabey i'm just paranoid?
Just for kicks I unplugged my DSL modem from the router and changed my password then reconnected my modem to the router.
I'm also conserned about if my computer has been hijacked would there be any keyloggers?
Should I go to a friends house, log onto all my accounts and change all my passwords just in case?
Any advice? or am i just being paranoid?
