Have I Been Hacked
Posted on 2014-10-18
I look after SMB network.
yesterday all users were complaining of very slow internet connection (it's already slow at 5Mbps). In fact browser pages were timing out so we suspected loss of internet. On checking the router it showed as connected and our service provider was able to confirm connection and also told use there was traffic both ways, yet no user was able to access the internet - emails were queuing too.
This sent panic through management who concluded that the system had been hacked and that all files were being "stolen".
Is it possible to check retrospectively what that traffic may have been. Our router is a Zyxel P600 which doesn't log anything. We have an SBS 2008 server that acts as DNS. Trend Micro Security AV and firewall
