Excess Traffic

Hello,

One of our PCs ina branch office created such a network traffic that it was using nearly half of the bandwidth of the E1 (2 Mbps) line connecting BO to headquarters. When we ran ip accounting on the remote router we saw that this PC is trying to establish TCP connections to IP addresses of all kinds (addresses in our network or some non-existent ones like 75.85.x.x). Some connection attempts are for http, others are for various ports.After a virus check we could find nothing and reinstalled operating system (Win 2K) to the PC and problem was solved. What is the explanation for this?

Regards.

Re: Excess Traffic

Definitely sounds like a Trojan virus of some kind. Verify that you anti-virus software is up to date. New viruses are created daily.
