I may sound paranoic... I know these things doesn't happen so easily as in the movies but here's my story:
  • About a month or so I was "threatened" by a chilean user in a e-community (note that I'm colombian), but as it was "the internet" I just ignored him.
    Today I found he created a Facebook profile (already reported and removed) with personal files that I'm SURE I've never EVER shared.
    I'm NOT the "tech savvy-est" of all, but I DO try to "protect" my system and my personal info.
    Also, there's one more user involved (mexican, for the record) that is concerned about the same.
    I DO have remote access apps (TeamViewer 8.0.18051) and I HAVE used them before with the mexican user (mostly for game troubleshooting) but NOT with the chilean user.
    Among the "threats", he said he would gain access to my hard drive.
Specs & apps:
  • OS: Win7 Ultimate x64.
    Network encryption: WPA2-PSK (AES) + MAC address filtering.
    Security apps: ESET NOD32, Spybot - S&D, Windows Defender 6.1.7600.16385. All of them up to date.
    I can't tell much about Firewall. Window's Firewall by default?
    No one other than me have physical access (to)/privileged account (on) this machine.
Any thoughts?
  • I have not taken actions on the matter other than two (2) scans (ESET NOD32, Spybot - S&D that didn't find anything besides trusted cracks/keygens.
