Reecently run programs



I hope this isn't a virus, in the rum command the recently run programs are ftp and telnet. I run a web server using apache. Am i being hacked? Is this normal? Is it just some program using this? Any other ideas? thanks


Run this

Active Ports

it shows you any open ports or any ports in use , very easy to use.

Telnet = 23
FTP =21

You can also use this program to close a port .......

Also check to see if any data is being sent out when your not using the machine...

Then I suggest running an Antivirus through your entire system just to make sure.....

And yes Telnet is a way they can control your machine


i've tried active ports before. when it opens it get an error Incorrect function. the title of the error says Active Ports - OpenPhysicalMemory error! (1)

If it is in the recent commands under Start->Run it is probably just people using your computer to telnet into other comptuers. The commands "telnet" and "ftp" in the Windows command line are clients, not servers. Those programs are being activated by a person, who is connecting to other hosts, not other hosts conecting to you

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
