    Is my computer being hacked?

    So this morning I found 3 images uploaded to my host server that I did not upload.

    Sometimes my Gmail account will automatically log me out claiming another user is logged in.

    And a few days ago I also noticed my IP address is different in my network preferences than what i'm seeing on ipchicken

    WTF?

    May be you have proxy enabled and you forgot about it.

    the 10.xxx IP is your IP assigned to your PC by your router. The IPChicken one is the external IP address.

    No router here, i'm actually using a wireless USB Virgin Mobile stick

    No, I dont think so, unless one of these free proxies has me hung up?

    Right I always forget this, but I dont have an actual router that i'm connected to. Unless you mean via the network remotely?
