I have a Windows 2000 Professional as my primary workstation. I have
pretty much all sorts of assorted programs and applications on this
Windows system. The Anti-Virus software on my system is the free
version of AVG from Grisoft.
Recently, I was introduced to the torrent network (primarily because I
wanted to download some Linux distros). My curiosity made me download
other audio torrents to see the efficiency of the torrent network. One
thing I have noticed on my system is that there is an email being sent
out periodically to some system (247.16.delicado.com.uy). When the
email is being sent out, the AVG Anti Virus is scanning the email, which
is how I found out about the delicado.com.uy system. I do not know what
is being sent out. Can the torrent files compromise security on your
system? Has my system been compromised and become part of a bot
network? How do I find out what is causing this email to go out? How
do I fix this problem?
Any help is much appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
Re: Forensics help - Outgoing email
Better configure your system to scan what comes in. Scanning what's
going out does not make sense.
