Re: Virus via Windows?
Aha!....you have had a similar experience to my own. What first alerted me that I had been hacked was something very similar as explained above...and how I was hacked was trough the vnc with uPnP ticked....now, I do not remember ticking this....last thing I remember was that I had ticked permission was needed to control the desktop....so how this changed I really do not know. It is possible I changed it...but I a 60% confident that I did not.
I have run a number of root checks and not found anything malicous. I have now closed the ability to access my PC via the net.
It strikes me that a) this was a bot..which is why my Libre Office writer file on my desktop was opened showing the virus script or b) some very clever (but ethical) hacker leaving his/her calling card to say "Wise up Buddy, you have been hacked!...check your system before the bad guys get in".
I dunno, I am mystified by the whole thing. I am contemplating taking my PC back to bare metal and reinstalling....but that seems very paranoid as I cannot find any trace on the logs or on the rootkits that anything evil has happened.
But thanks for sharing your experience...makes me feel much better in one way!
