Someone hacked into my computer. I´m on dailup, so in theory I´m as good as invisible because you get a new ip number every time. However recently every time I dailup and check my mail, I get port scanned. The lights are flashing with port scan attempted 220.127.116.11. This is not supposed to be happening, I´m on dailup and Iḿ on Linux!:eek:
I think I figured it out, something to do with the Evolution mail program and LDAP server. I go rid of them both and the problem seemed to disappear.
I´m thinking is possible that the Hackers have found some way of sending a spam gif that tricks the mail program to overflow, and then take over the mail program or worse my whole computer. Is this possible? And has this happened to anybody recently?
