Did someone connect to my computer?

Hello everyone,

After being away from my running computer for 2 hours, I came back to the default TV window in the foreground centered (I had it off center in the background open before). This made me a bit paranoid, as it has never happened before. I checked the Connections_incoming.log and there's nothing there, but I think the 'hacker' could have easily removed the entry there.

I tried to decipher the log file for the past hour, but can't find any documentation on it. I was wondering if anyone experienced could have a look at the logs from 2017/08/15 specifically after 19:00 and tell me if there were any remote controls initiated https://paste.ee/p/1B9Yd

Thank you!

NO GUARANTEES - I'M JUST A USER LIKE YOU!

User connections in the log file have a block of entries containing "Negotiating session encryption: client hello received from" and show the ID of the incoming device. I didn't see that in your log. But it does look like an auto-update ran around the time you mentioned. And you are suspicious because the TeamViewer window was in the fore-ground? It's possible TeamViewer updated and popped up when it was done.

I think you are OK, but your should take down the log file. It contains your ID and other info.

I don't work for TeamViewer. I'm just a user.

Actually TeamViewer is not spy Software. Its a legal Remote Desktop software but some Time its maybe hurtful for your pc/laptop/phone/tablet or any other device Just Because of the user permission.
