This question already has an answer here:
I recently setup a new Win8.1 PC while still working on my main development PC so it did not have all of the security tools that I usually install, e.g. malwarebytes, adaware, etc. Since it takes me a few days to fully setup my machines with coding tools and a myriad of other tools, I made the MISTAKE of accessing my bank account information to check on something that came through my mobile. I admit, it totally slipped my mind and wasn't thinking at the moment, mea culpa.
Well, at 7 AM today, my bank has confirmed that my new PC tried 3 unsuccessful attempts at accessing my bank account. Luckily, this bank has a couple of layers of security and they weren't able to bypass the security questions section.
Now, I am seeking some advice on what steps I should proceed with.
Just as an FYI, I would like to find out the following:
- The IP address of the offending #*##)
- The program that came w/ the infection
- Any software that I can use to see what programs run/start when my PC is idle (since at 7 AM, I was not near this PC)
- Any software I can use to see when any program accesses a remote address (I used to use one that listed the program running and attempting to access http, etc., but can't recall it at the moment.)
I am aware there could be a bunch of scenarios that are possible, so can you please supply me with, what are some of the common practices so I can read up on them? Rootkit? Keylogger?
FYI, I also ran some virus/malware/trojan/rootkit locators programs and NOTHING has been found? Is this common?
Also, I should note that I left this laptop in "Sleep" mode the night before with the Google Chrome browser open with many tabs open.
