Windows 7 – How to find out which websites are listening in
Applications often dial home to their mothership – but how do we detect this? It’s quite easy, but often we need to know the application that’s dialing home, so that we can prevent the data leak.
Step 1 – Admin CMD
Start > Accessories > Command prompt > right click > run as Administrator
Step 2 – Netstat to find connections
This netstat command will save the connections into a notepad file called “activity.txt”.
netstat -abf 5 > activity.txt
Leave this for 2-3 minutes, then press Ctrl+C – to cancel the logging.
Step 3 – Open activity.txt
Here we can see Firefox and IVPN connections.
