Having trouble with one computer that is very infected and plays audio adverts randomly with nothing else obviously running. Just started copying data to reformat and start again. But I happened to look at the router list of open connections and noticed several connections to a different computer on my network. I remembered having seen the Paperghost tutorial on this site Tracing a Hacker and tried the netstat -a as suggested. I was surprised to see not only a large number of connections on ports 4422 to 4490, but that a number of these connections were from hades.bleepingcomputer.com

What would be behind this and should I be concerned?

Thats a legit connect. Nothing to be worried about.
