First of all, I'm a co-owner of my company and I am using my own computer on my company network. Occasionally I'll browse some websites throughout the day to kill some time.
My business partner recently got a call from IT saying I visited some unsavory sites and got some malware on my system. I am wondering what IT was able to see and log, mostly because I'm embarrassed about some of the Internet surfing I've done. Nothing illegal, so please don't judge.
Some additional information: the IT company is a separate entity that we pay for all our networking and computer needs. They have installed PC Complete Care Agent on all computers.
I usually use a VPN on my PC (Private Internet Access), but after looking at some other answers on this and other websites I realized I didn't have DNS leak protection enabled. However, a lot of my browsing was done without activating the VPN.
I know our IT uses OpenDNS. I did a leak test with and without my VPN activated and all queries pointed to OpenDNS.
My question is, was IT able to log all activity and websites even with the VPN activated, or only the activity when it wasn't activated? I'd like to know the extent of my exposure. Lesson learned.
I appreciate your help!
