Deaf- keep getting hacked , 3rd time this year

I’m deaf, it’s hard to communicate when most of my resources are down ( Lenovo yoga III is pending pick up from Microsoft @ la Cantera, 3rd time hacked and windows boot up tampered with), ( my wife laptop same exact thing too, aced aspire switch 10 ), both iPhones and iPad Pro got affected, on 3rd iTunes account since summer 2017, both google onhub tplink router ( 2 of them in mesh network), kept getting affected, believed its to be through upnp to son’s Xbox one ( found 10 upnp services last night as well poets 139, 1080, etc open. I can’t close them. I even bought a FingBox firewall, still gets thru undetected, I even just last month bought linksys WRT3200acm router, flashed it and put LEDE firmware, I can’t understand half of all the settings.... will anyone please help, I wonder if there’s some hidden autorun Trojan deep inside the Lenovo yoga that literally once connected to internet, every folder, file, crack, all have been affected badly, and I’m deaf and on disability, I know this would cost an arm & leg to fix, but I’m hoping to work something out, payment plan or some sort. I’ve manage all my life to fix things on my own, both of my wife’s and my car, tranny too, I’ve learned so much in cmd and powershell winrm script coding this year it’s fricken hard, this by far the hardest challenge I’ve cone to face. I’ve climb cell towers, ran crews with a 7500 per hour crane on site high as 350ft under extends pressure from ATT to fix it cost effectively, no problem, and I’m deaf, I handle pressure and quick troubleshoot analytical skills but networking, it’s beating my ass, I think these hackers are enjoying this. Please help me tighten down my Wifi security. “

First off, no, your Yoga doesn't have some deep trojan in it. At least not by default. But, just to be sure, run ESET's online scanner and a full Malwarebytes scan (with rootkit scan enabled) when you get it back.
Second, if you are worried about stuff getting to your network from your son's XB1, you'll need to either take away his XB1 for a while, or put him on a separate network. Is it connecting through wireless? If yes, create a second SSID that is segmented (on a different network) and just has straight internet access. Many routers and firewalls can do this.
Third, you need to make sure that YOU are not bringing in the virus. Do you surf/download porn? Do you use file sharing or P2P to download 'free' games and programs? If the answer is yes, I'm 100% sure that is where the viruses are coming from. If no then you just need to be very cautious whenever anything asks to be installed. Also be sure to fun full Malwarebytes scans (with rootkit scan enabled) at least once a week.

Re: Deaf- keep getting hacked , 3rd time this year

That’s the plan, to unplug Xbox 1 in hopes the problem has been fully eliminated. I haven’t picked up yoga yet but it’s embarrassing to go to Microsoft store 3rd time to have them fully erase hard drives and reinstall windows 10 home to both notebooks. But for free, it’s better than disposing the laptops. Here’s a very odd twist I noticed last night, my google acct compromise and alerted me that there has been a new sign in to acct from new iPhone and gave me the IP address, the twist is, I’ve been on workers comp injury since 2015 ( back, knee, and neck, the entire time I was seen, treated for both back and knee but never the neck, i felt discriminated by my insurance adjuster, cutting off email communications which I heavily rely on for over a year now, the odd thing is every time I build up a case with circumstanal evidence exposing the adjuster emails that are unhumane and acts of malice, to make me suffer ( because of miscommunication that is so intentional ). Well the 3rd time I got hacked, I was about to email workers comp ombudsman on critical incriminating email info from adjuster. When that occurred my laptop shut down and other laptops followed, apple tv’s lagging, iPhones battery hot. Etc. what I did right very then was ran a trace on all IP’s and found locations such as Seattle, West Virginia, Houston ( 300 miles from me in San Antonio, Also my home up as well, but my insurance company Zurich is based out of Schrammburg IL, I also found an IP address 70 miles from there, in Indiana. Could it be what I’m thinking? Or I must be rediculous for such assumption

Re: Deaf- keep getting hacked , 3rd time this year

If you have Microsoft resetting your computer, then you should not be looking at the Lenovo computer as the source of all the problems.

 

Things to do on your Yoga.

 

Make certain Defender is running. 

Make certain the Windows Firewall is turned on.

 

By Default your router shouldn't have any ports on for inbound connections. You should make certain your router password is a very secure password, Admin, Admin is no good! Make certain you have a very good Wi-Fi password as well.

 

When you go to Microsoft to pick up your Lenovo, arrange a time so that you can talk with a technical person there. See if they will give you some advise on your network router, and your X-Box connectivity.

 

You can put the X-Box on a seperate network, but in the end you're connected togeter to your Cable/ADSL/Whaterver connection you have external to the Internet. You can configure a VLAN on the Linksys, or you can get a second router. 

 

What you need to do is secure the Linksys. 

 

You mention other devices, iPhone, iPad... your problem could be coming from there.

 

Something like this is hard to diagnois not being hands on with it. But honestly, it isn't that hard to secure the passage into your network. You can talk to yoru ISP - internet service provider - to get their assistance as well.

 

Now my question, how do you know you are hacked?

Re: Deaf- keep getting hacked , 3rd time this year

Please don’t make me look bad here. First of all Microsoft did their end 3 times because windows was “messing up in a way, not loading correctly, something about GUID or some involving boot up”, several times Microsoft erased hard drive to get rid of “corrupted files or do” ( windows 10 home ). In that case, they opted to proceed by erase, reinstall windows, update drivers, etc. every time I take it home and log online, it starts to do some “update” which I’m suspecting is fake because after boot up from update, there’s a bunch of new games, file directory such as WindowsNT$ and old.windows, as well new “used” and another user under the alias of “system”. I know in that 20-30 min timeframe none of those files were there, it occurred to me, the Microsoft store does have internet, turned on and showed me freshly installed windows, so I’m puzzled to why is only Lenovo Yoga initiating the update in this network ( I’ve reset, erased, reinstall, custom IP in lan, block Upnp, set up fingbox firewire, yet somehow, Lenovo is allowing such autorun Trojan blow up and infect every gosh darn file. You asking me how do I know I’m hacked! Does it look like it is? I have a question for you, tell me your theory please, please do elaborate, I’ve flush dns in cmd, ipconfig /all to see who’s tunneling and it’s coming thru some

Re: Deaf- keep getting hacked , 3rd time this year

I’ve took my phone, all my iOS device to apple and nothing is indicated that I’m compromised, router is reset again, unique WiFi name and 32 character password, Xbox fully wiped out and unplugged. Only roku is on, I get 100mgbs and iOS confirm my routers are “non-static” that ip changes upon request, even I make custom ip following the 24/device 255 protocol manner. And that’s on the tplink onhub routers (2) in a mesh network. Also the linksys, I think it’s done, upon flashing firmware with Lenovo, it crashed after restart and wasn’t even plugged in router, I think in my suspectious case, if the hackers are who I believe in relation to workers comp ( fishy I know ) but timelines match up, adjuster so confident I won’t get surgery, when one of his previous emails stated yes go ahead ( but now he recanted ), so could it all be related? I’ve never been hacked, I’m broke as hell, my credit is shot I doubt I’ll get approved for first time home buyer, what and why could my Lenovo keep getting jacked, my network bleeped, and all my files gone ( luckily I saved most files thru Dropbox via new email with unrelation name. And submitted to ADA dept of Justices on federal discrimination complaint. I haven’t gone to IC3, nothing against them but they get thousands of complaints every day, mine won’t be any difference, 

 

p.s. look at the user log in page, tell me what you see is a very good positive indication someone accessed the Lenovo remotely. Trust me I’m not paranoid, I wished I was, I’m acting like it, but no it’s all real my friend.

Re: Deaf- keep getting hacked , 3rd time this year

I’ve ran malwarebytes several times, it found pup malware and contained it, I even clicked the checkbox “rootkits” in settings @ malwarebytes, I even did the Rkill program too, what else am I missing? ( there’s two types of malwarebytes), also rkill, and something that stops autorun, it’s all in the www.bleepingcomputers.com how to list. Even after all done, confirm windows but something is overriding my user admin and changed a bunch of policies that I can’t override or remove during windows fresh install. It seems like whenever I get somewhere, the hacker don’t like it and bounces back much more aggressively. I got to hand it to him though, he’s good, I’m no expert, learned from research, I think I’ve guven the hacker a run for it but man they are so good so fast, everything literally gets infected within minutes and impossible to stop. I even have routers unplugged, I live in townhouse, I have this strange theory but could the hacker somehow access through neighbors WiFi, jump to my Visio smart cast ( I can’t lock the WiFi ), and it’s impossibke to believe but they can get to the computers thru ultra low power Bluetooth, WiFi jumping, boom even my WiFi is unplugged, the likelihood that it’s actually Lenovo intel processor or some sort of pseudo tunnel they can slither thru like a **bleep** invisible snake, I’ve now officially done gone lost my mind and my thumbs hurt from all these typing on iPhone, yes texting. I have no pc to type 85wpm. Ouch.

Re: Deaf- keep getting hacked , 3rd time this year

I think some of the auto-installs you are seeing is just Windows 10. Unfortunately, Microsoft is now automatically pushing 'game' installs from their Microsoft Store. These installs happen automatically and are difficult to stop.

I don't know if you are actively getting hacked. I don't know if it's related to what described in your previously posts. All I can offer is my opinion. What I would recommend is, instead of jumping to the 'someone is out to get me' conclusions, try to think of alternative reason to explain what is going on.

As I said, Microsoft has changed how it pushes out its updates, removing some of the control that users are used to having. Anyway, I hope you figure out what's going on. If you have any further specific questions feel free to post them.
