A few minutes ago my laptop made some beep beep noises and a few seconds later the webcam active on it's own for about 1 second, my guess is that it took a photo but I didn't trigger it so my first though it that my laptop is compromise and someone is accessing my stuff, which of course it' s a big problem. So far the only new stuff I installed recently is the google-talkplugin and skypeforlinux-bin packages (both from AUR repositories) because I need it for my job.
I haven't install or configure any firewall nor any security stuff besides to what Manjaro has by default, so here are my questions:
- How can I improve my security?
- Is there any firewall by default on Manjaro? if so, how do I configure it?
- Have any of you guys experience anything like this before?
- Any port I should block to avoid any remote connection?
- How can I check if any package has been compromise on my install?
- Any other advice on what to do on these cases?
- Should I do a clean install? I would rather don't since that would take me quite sometime to make a backup of everything...
- And finally, I'm an active gamer, what rules should I add to keep steam and it's games connected?
Here is some info about my Manjaro install and laptop just in case it is a hardware related security issue since it is a Lenovo and that brand have a long history adding backdoors and stuff like that...:
