HELP - ANDROID AND COMPUTER TETHERED AND HIJACKED

Post by lcfertig »

TECHNOLOGICALYY CHALLENGED - I am convinced my computer and android have been hijacked - for a variety of reasons - but most noteable - my android and computer have somehow become tethered (no idea how) and when I ran my IP address is said "network proxy suspected".

I then ran an OS monitor on my android and found several Local/Remote IP Protocols labeled "UDP Dialer Storage" among other things with a variety of Remote IP addresses including one from DISNA (UK Ministry of Defense); one in Ireland attached to compute.amazon.naws.con; a CA Caching Proxy Center; another from Houston, TX; and so on. These are in addition to those listed as "Mail", "Calendar Sync", etc.

HELP! Am I paranoid? Or is something really wrong here?

Thank you in advance for any and all assistance!!!

Backup valuable things like apps from your Android with titanium backup, and do a factory reset. How you do that varies from model to model.

I can't help you with the PC tho, but a first step would be checking the host file and running Spybot-SearchAndDestroy to remove viruses.
