No they didn't .. they managed to get TO your PC on port 5900 .. the only thing they would have been able to do was get asked for the VNC password (hopefully you set one), which they don't have.

They do NOT have access to your PC or network.

I've already said .. uninstall vnc:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge vino

Whoever it is that's hacking my PC through fb is managing to actually control my PC as I was in Dolphin and the file screen was going up and down while I was trying to scroll it up.

If you want to see if you have a problem re; remote access, try running this from a friends house (against your IP address);

(Runs on Linux, you'll need to download it ...)

Problem solved (via PM) .. password now set in the vino VNC server that was running.

Info on how to set a password in the vino server (if you're running it) here:

I was told that Linux does not need a firewall.  I notice there are firewalls for Ubuntu download. Would it be safer to install one, if so which one ?

Which idiot told you that ?!

You might find that they meant "Linux doesn't need an anti-virus program", or possibly "your" [Linux] computer doesn't need a firewall.

If your machine is on the end of an ADSL line, behind a NAT router - then you don't really need a firewall, because the router is effectively a firewall. Unless of course you don't trust the router ... I guess it depends on how paranoid you are / what you keep on your PC (!)
