I was hacked before and I'm not sure if I'm 100% safe

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,
A few months ago my computer was hacked because i downloaded an unsafe application to my computer. I was not using any antivirus back then other than windows defender. After realizing it i changed all my passwords, reset the windows 10 using USB, flushed DNS and reset my router. I also changed my router's password and remote control was closed all the time. I downloaded ESET internet security and till this day i am getting notifications on arp cache attacks, duplicate IP addresses on network and most of them are from my router. Is there a chance for my router to be still hacked? What should i do further? Kindly advice me.1.png.d243182c8e1a0972cb436320c624d686.png

You're receiving the ARP Poisoning alert due to the duplicate IP addresses on your network. Refer to this article: https://support.eset.com/en/kb3430-identical-ip-addresses-detected-in-network . Also refer to this article: https://support.eset.com/en/kb2933-arp-icmp-or-dns-cache-poisoning-attack-in-eset-home-products-for-windows

The easiest way to eliminate the port 1900 incoming SSDP blocking is to disable the Win SSDP service. You don't need it.

The incoming port 138 NetBIOS UDP traffic is a bit of a mystery. Might be related to those duplicate IP addresses on your network.
