Early in 2011 I downloaded LogMeIn and signed up for an account. However, I later decided not to use LogMeIn and I uninstalled the software on January 11, 2011.
Just recently (August, 2011) I signed up for a service (OpenDNS) that, among its other features, allows me to see which domains my computer is contacting throughout the day. I was astonished to see multiple requests for logmein.com.
The actual domain names look like this:
app04-09.logmein.com, and so on.
All these domain names seem to be legitimately associated with LogMeIn. I checked my computer quite carefully, and I'm very sure that LogMeIn was completely uninstalled. I also scanned my computer for malware with Norton Power Eraser (also Malwarebytes), finding no infections.
My first reaction was: someone is accessing my wireless network. That's quite unlikely, since my network is protected by WPA2/AES encryption, and my network password is un-crackable. (Plus, I live in the far out suburbs.) And yet, my computer continues to attempt to contact these domains.
This leads me to two possible conclusions: Despite my efforts, soneone has hacked into my computer and/or into my network; or, some legitimate application is accessing logmein for a legitimate purpose.
Does this sound familiar to anyone?
