How does one go about finding out if they are being shadowed by programs, such as RemotelyAnywhere.

Is there a small utility I can use (without having to install permanently) to check if somebody is using shadowing you. Use the utility from time to time.

Hiya

Just been reading up on RemotelyAnywhere here:

http://www.remotelyanywhere.com/index.shtml

It looks like its some sort of BackOffice. This is, I suppose, a kind of trojan for good purposes. You could get a copy of The Cleaner www.moosoft.com

I assume you're on a network, but you could always look at your ports. Do you have a firewall installed, and if so, which one?

You can try looking at your ports via a Dos Command prompt, by typing in

netstat -a

a bit more info might be useful, though.

Regards

eddie

I know what the product is. I want to know when it's being used. (like for evil purposes :) I want to know when "Big Brother" is snooping. If I use zoneAlarm..big brother will know. I need a small utility (preferably unknown utility)

So, what you're saying is that you need to be able to make sure no one is snooping but if they are, not to let them know that you know, is that right?

Most tools, if installed on your machine will be decteted by someone that is snooping. The firewall will alert big brother, but will stop him getting in, which I assume is what you don't want.

However, there is one method that has been tried and tested, though its no small device. Its called a Honeypot.

Have a read of this:

http://www.net-security.org/text/articles/spitzner/honeypot.shtml

As I say, not an easy thing to set up, but it can evade hackers. What this also did is have two firewalls on the same PC, so while the attacker thinks he's in the system, you're behind another wall watching him.

I assume, though, that this isn't what you want.

How about a simple look at the DOS Command and typing what I mentioned earlier, netstat -a
