“Somebody Is Using My Computer…”

   Posted by: John    in Computer and Network

I get a real kick out of people who claim that someone is using their computer when they are not around.  In some cases it might even be true.  Might.

I get called to go to a client to do a virus removal.  This is a client that I have done a number of virus removals for, on the same computer.  Yes, it is in an area where a person could go to, ah, unrecommended sites and not be seen. 

Well, it had a bug, and it came from an adult site.  I can go through stuff on the computer to find out where it came from, and I did.  It came from an adult web site. 

I cleaned the computer and changed the password.  If it happens again…there’s no excuse!
