@john confirmed ipeth-utils is not installed. libgpod-0.7.51-1 is installed (library to read and write songs and artwork to an iPod) which is distributed with 10.10 I think.

Thanks everyone. Swipe card records confirmed the cleaner was in the room for 2.30am to 4.30am. The cleaning company has been asked to ask the cleaner and to advise them this is not okay. I expect they do it regularly to recharge their phones but happened to plug into this Ubuntu machine instead of the more common Windows boxes. It is however an excellent way to deliver exploits and/or steal data with a low probably of detection.

This appears to be Ubuntu's default behaviour to automount USB devices and automatically set up the tethered network device if the device supports it (except that it didn't quite work in this scenario).

Thanks Farseeker. I wouldn't think so... Although that would be easy for a cleaner to do while they're doing their rounds.
