It could be between 3-4 gig a day. Obviously it was not anything I was doing. In the resource monitor svchost.exe was sending 12,000 b/sec to a site overseas I am using MS security essentials. I ran a few online virus scanners and malware detectors with no positive results I have reinstalled my operating system and factory reset my router I also remote desktop from home to my work computer. I forward ports 3389 (standard RDP port) on my router to my computers internal IP address. I forward 3390 to my colleagues computer
This morning I have traffic being upload to a site ds9777.dedicated.turbodns.co.uk. Looking at Resource Monitor, svchost was using PID 1320. 1320 in services was being used by Termservice, Nlasvc, plus some others including remote desktop. I guessed that RDP was being used. I changed the port forwarding settings on the router to my computer to 3391. Traffic has now stopped.
So the question I have and perhaps a problem 1. What was happening? 2. If I change forwarding ports other than 3389 (say 3391), once 3389 has been used, RDP does not seem to work. I did also change the registry setting to 3391 from the standard 3389. Solution 3. Any other issues that I need to look at? Thanks
