I recently discovered that someone been hacking my wireless network. I do have WPA encryption and I think I now have locked him out.
My question is; can he /she have gotten so far that they opened up my computer and searched my files? Or is the main purpose of hacking a network to get free access to internet? If he can get to my computer and my files, how far can he get and how does he do it? I mean, doesn't I have to grant him access to my computer for sharing my files? Shouldn't I get some kind of notice that he's trying to be a part om my "homenetwork"?
I remember setting up the network that I needed to manually configure what computers that had access to "filesharing".... or do I remeber wrong?
Ohh, by the way, I have W7 and two laptops and a desktop. And yes, I'm a newbie.
Thank's for any answers.
