I have a new laptop with Windows 11 Pro installed. I have good reason to believe my home network has been compromised by a malicious hacker nearby. Anyone can read instructions on how to exploit. So easy, a child can do it.
Several events occurred that lead me to believe my new laptop has been compromised as well. These aren’t conclusive so I’m asking your advice.
Notepad had 6 tabs open that I didn’t create/open, each containing a bit of data that I copy/pasted into a text document (one was my Glasswire registration number). These mystery tabs in Notepad were all unsaved.
A path to a file from my file:///C:Users/[Me]/AppData/Local/Temp folder ending with .xpi was found in a Firefox tab search bar.
Glasswire crashed. I have the .dmp file. How can I have support look at it?
I know there are vulnerabilities on Windows 11 and all OS’s but how can Glasswire prevent exploitations? Thanks.
