extra computer that is not mine in circle? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I think i was hacked into . I had a 4th computer in my circle that was not mine.I removed it. When i did my linksys went into diag. red light mode and did not reset.How did someone hack into my circle and break my linksys.The firewall must have holes in it. And i saw no virus indication for this bogus file.

  • If, somehow, someone activated a copy of OneCare on their PC using your LiveID and password, it would appear in your list of computers on a Hub PC. That would have nothing to do with the firewall and it would not mean that your PC was hacked.

    Where did you see this other PC and what steps did you perform to remove it?

    I can't imagine that your router would go belly up if you simply clicked the option in OneCare's Circle management to remove a PC from your subscription.
