Windows 8: Who is on My Wifi?
Who is on my WiFi? Is it possible to determine who is connected to my wireless network without accessing Windows OS or other security methods? The security flaws in the Windows operating system mean that one cannot trust it 100%. Infected computers have been the victim of malware, spyware, and viruses that steal passwords and usernames. Unexpected configuration changes have also affected the performance of the computer network.
Windows OS has a vulnerability that allows users to find other users connected to them on a network. This is even though they are not the owners of the wireless networks. This vulnerability is called Remote Access Helper (RAS). Nowadays, almost every internet cafe and restaurant has their own wireless network. Users may sometimes invite malware or untrue computers to their networks due to poor management.
Searching for the keyword "remote-access hacker" in Google will help you identify suspicious activity in a network. To access the wireless options on the computer, one must simply go to the control panel. You can also click on "scan" to scan the computer for malware, viruses, Trojan horses, and worms. Uninstalling the 'jabber software' on the computer can be done after the unwanted software has been removed. Once the software has been installed, click the'start' button. This will start the Wifi scanning process.
