I am new to linux and Mint. Having recently installed it on a 6yr old lenovo laptop every week or two I receive a worrying popup message:
"Another user is trying to view your desktop.
A user on the computer 'host172.giga-106.khakasnet.ru' is trying to remotely view or control your desktop.
Do you want to allow them to do so?"
This I always refuse. However, it looks like a security risk. I am on a home wireless network with a BT Homehub router in the UK which as far as I know runs the default security settings.
Googling and then viewing the website with the above host172... address brings me to a suspicious look "HP Sotorageworks ..." website.
Any advice on how to make my laptop/router more secure to avoid this would be very welcome.
