[Solved] Help! Everything is uploading data to unknow server

Post by jocabba » Wed Jul 22, 2009 1:14 am

The last two days I have a very serious problem with Everything (last version).

This is a screenshot:

You can see Everything was sending data for 4 hours: 90 MB

This is the second time I watch it. The first time I kill the process and reinstall a copy from the oficial website like each time a want install Everything.

The most misterius thing is the server that E connect: 69.84.207.147 It's something named Lightspeed Systems We Crawler (creepy!)

It's Everything's staff should tell me something about this?

PD: I've no virus or spyware in my computer, seriusly

"Everything" will only check http://www.voidtools.com/version.c for update notifications if you have enabled check for updates.

It looks like a sub process of "Everything" is causing the problem.

Does the problem occur when you do not run any files from "Everything"?

What does the Info tab in NetLimiter display for process 1268?

Please, excuse me for the paranoid message. It was my fault.

I forget to disable the virtual server ports in my router when I started the HTTP server in Everything (in our LAN we disable the Netbios in every PC, so we use Everything to search files in each PC over the net). So, this crawler scanned our IP and started to dig in the web interface.

Cheers David! Everything is a excellent program. The previous app that I was tried was Index Your Files and Locate32, but these programs need indexing every time, Everything not.
