Re: pc generating unauthorized http scans



Oops I missed that sorry, I would say start by looking at event logs, running a Forensic live CD like Helix or something of the likes image your machine rebuild it and take time analyzing the image offline.

For starters what operating system are you running on your computer?

Hello,
Recently, our corporate security team identified that my windows xp pc was performing a number of http scans of other systems within our network.

I am not running any kind of scans, nor have I authorized anything to run such scans.

How can I determine what is performing these scans?
