Hi all -
This is going to seem like an odd post since it's not too technical in nature, but I'm hoping you can help set my mind at ease or confirm my high level of anxiety.
I was on my home computer using Yahoo Messenger and chatting with a work friend. Said work friend was logged into his VPN but didn't realize it. He was not remoted into his work machine or anything and was on his home computer, but was definitely logged into VPN. Well, a large portion of that conversation is something that we are hoping was not read/caught/monitored by our company.
How likely is it that they monitor something like that? And how easy would it be to "see" the conversation? Would they be able to tell who I am since I was not logged in but was on my own home network (and behind a firewall)?
Please - no flaming. I am well aware that I could lose my job if any of this was monitored and am really freaking out over it all. I'm hoping you can justify my anxiety or help ease it.
Thanks in advance and I apologize for posting something so trivial in your forum. I didn't know where else to turn for answers!
