13 days ago, POP was enabled in my gmail account. As I did not enable it, I was concerned it has been compromised, and that an outsider has access. As I searched my computer settings today, I saw that my 1394 connection was enabled as well, 13 days ago. I did not enable it, to my knowledge and have no idea how it came to be that way. I have been reading about firewire ports and security risks. Is this just a coincidence, or should I be concerned about changing all passwords with banks, credit card companies etc? I have a compaq laptop, and it is pretty much at home or at coffee shops with me.

Any suggestions or help are greatly appreciated.

1394 connections are usually set to enabled by default when you install operating systems....
Why did you offlined me?
