Hello all,

 

I've been experiencing some strange issues that lead me to believe I may have some sort of infection. Here are the symptom's I'm seeing:

 

  1. Last night my network was having many, many network issues. I logged into my router and saw that my computer had 400 active connections. I was able to get it down by shutting down applications such as Chrome, Netflix, Spotify, Blizzard Battle.Net, instant messenger, Steam, and Origins. I ended up shutting my computer down and decided to look again in the morning.
  2. With the issues going on, web site access was happening very intermittently.
  3. When I got on my PC to see what the problem was I had a notice that the Origin client (EA game client) couldn't log on because it was logged on in another location. I've only got it installed on this computer.
  4. After the PC was shut down I reset my router and modem and connection seemed to be going fine.
  5. I woke up this morning and checked me email on my phone and found a message saying that my twitter password had been changed. I fired up my twitter app and was still able to connect. I went to twitter to try and force a log on and was able to connect with my old password. I looked through my feed an saw that my account had sent out about 20 spam messages in the middle of the night. I changed my password to be safe, but who knows if that'll do anything.

Anyway, I'm really worried something is going on. Can someone help me out?
