i have a machine suspected of being infected with malware, started from facebook. whenever this person A logs into facebook, another person B seems to know what A is doing. B can access A photos, up to the extent that A can literally see her folder on her desktop being copied over. how can we confirm on whether this is a hacking / security leak issue on the laptop?

That seems like a strange security risk...check for listening ports on the workstations

yes, we are using a proxy server...we replace the user's laptop with a spare harddisk. is there anyway we can scan the old hard disks on any logs to find out more about this?
