Liteon laptop charger (i think) tries to connect to internet ?


Recommended Posts

i use a laptop and a few other devices in my local wifi, all devices are known


but just got a warning from my network monitoring system from xfinity that is installed on my cell phone


"LiteonXX-xxxx has connected to your network..." but this is not the name of my laptop or other known devices




i looked in Device Manager (Start > Windows Admin Tools > Computer Management) but couldn't find anything named LiteonXX-xxx


so i paused the unknown device connection by using the xfinity router monitoring phone app, and guess what?, it blocked my laptop (which i've used a zillion times on this wifi) and which had the charger plugged in


so i did some searching and found a thread that seems to suggest that it might be the charger that is connecting:




does anyone know if a charger could secretly try to connect to wifi? would this be a new form of malware?
