"BT" technician/netstat data evidence of compromised connection!

Watch out there. Guy from "BT" saying my connection was compromised and to prove it he showed me, via "netstat" in the Command Prompt, lots of naughty devices using my internet connection.

 

Very disappointing because he hung up before I could string him along.

How did he access your PC to be able to show you the netstat output?

It takes time to achieve a block to these callers, usually from classification, "unavailable, out of area" or perhaps

"unavailable, voip".

I've queried this with my call blocker provider.

They "say" that you can block "unavailable" callers, without compromising emergency services, etc.

It's a case of putting to the test................

 

So far I have success with "International, out of area" callers, looking at the counts in the blocked calls list.

You have to warn relatives and friends about this, if they use Skype, for instance. There's a setting in Skype to overcome problems with caller i.d.
