    Default How to check whether your PC is hacked

    Hi! I'm Steven,I'm a software engineer.In today's world it is estimated that atleast 10 computers are hacked and taken control off every single hour.
    this is a simple guide to see if your PC has a direct connection to any ip or server!

    1. First or all, close IE, msn, uTorrent etc. (not anti-virus) Anything that may have a direct connection to the net.

    2. Open Cmd ("command prompt" if u cant find it go to "run" and then type in "cmd" or just make a search for cmd)

    3. Now when you've cmd opened, type in "netstat -ano"
    Now u should have lot's of ip's on cmd. At the right side, look for where it says ”ESTABLISHED" The other's (LISTENING, TIME_WAIT etc) are not important. Just the "ESTABLISHED" dude has a direct contact to your PC

    4. At the very right side of cmd u see PID (process id) Look for the "ESTABLISGED" connections PID.

    5. Open "Task manager" (Press "Ctrl + Shift + Esc", the faster way or just "Alt+ Ctrl + Del")

    6. Go to Process > Show > Choose column and check the "PID" box, and press ok. Now the process-ID should appear same as it was in cmd.
    Now look for the same "PID" which said "ESTABLISGED in Cmd and find it's process name. In my case the subject was "Java client" this time But if you find anything suspicious just kill the process and that's it. you can also trace them if you like.

    I hope this helps you a bit. If you can't catch up or have any comments
    reply down and I'll look forward to help you.Thanks!

    Nice and best tut from geeky so far. Anyway, you may give some warning about not to kill important system process like "svchost" and "System" itself because sometimes people can be scared of it

    Honestly I just said there are possibilities of tracing but i Don't know how to trace as it's a bit complicated and requires a lot of computing knowledge.

    This will give you a general idea of who it is, where they are located, or what isp they are using. With the IP address I imagine you can call the company or provider of address and ask them what's going on. :)

    Edit: Aye! how rude of me. Redbull thank you for the great info. Good knowledge!
