I think i was hacked?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I don't know if this is the right place for this or not but I need to put this somewhere because im confused as hell. So I was playing Minecraft with my friends and my keyboard started to control itself (crouching shifting etc) so I though nothing of it as it seemed as a simple keyboard malfunction . I started to get worried when my game started typing in chat without me even touching any sort of control device . Also they kept minimizing my tabs trying to gain access to my desktop which couldn't be the result of a simple plug in built into mc . Does anyone has any idea what could of happened?

well first I would make sure your siblings/friends weren't trolling you with a remote desktop or just an extra bluetooth keyboard

Well my first thought would be, that your keyboard might be dirty or broken. 

Sorry I forgot to state they type full on understandable phrases

Go into command prompt and type "ipconfig" and reply with a screenie, itll see if anyone has remoted into your system (blur your user)


If you have any questions about ultra high end audio (Or any speakers or audio gear!), don't be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Spent over 960k on audio gear, still trying to increase sound quality.

Have you used any remote desktop software recently such as TeamViewer? While technically not impossible, I find it pretty much entirely unreasonable that someone from the internet has hacked into your computer and given themselves access just to mess with you like that. 100% chance this is just your friends trolling you or something. But that's just my opinion

That's what I think too but I just find it crazy that this could even happen, scared me more than anything

Yeah it's 1000% one of your friends or siblings messing with you.

I'll be highly surprised if it is considering my family / friends have no idea how to do any kind of stuff related to malware but that is a possibility

Doing ip configs has helped me alot with viruses before, but other methods obviously work aswell, its just a very simple first step that i do alot.

Defender is not a solution. You have to install something along the lines of Kaspersky, Avast, bitdefender or malwarebytes. 
Do a full system scan and that will show if there are issues, and mean while during the scan do unplug your eternet and wifi from the system.

Get a VPN such as Windscribe or such as well just in case. (They give 15 GB free and an offer is online somewhere with 30Gb/month for an year going on as well.) Good luck. 

I use Windows Defender is not a valid defense point.
