I am running Hardy Herron on a VirtualBox VM at work to do tasks in Linux from time to time. I'm currently having a problem that something on my Linux machine is trying to log in to my work environment with my username and an old password. This is a serious issue, because whenever I start the Linux VM my account at work gets locked out immediately and I have to get IT to unlock it.
I think it's likely that something has my username and password stored for accessing the proxy here. Before I got rid of it, I had the 'export http_proxy' line in my .bashrc script so that apt-get would work. But the problem persists. I have also removed the proxy settings under synaptic and the Gnome desktop at preferences->Network Proxy.
Any ideas for what could be attached to the username and password?
Thank you all for your help,
