Is that some kind of mystical Tibetan woolly creature?
Maybe the origin of the yeti myth.
Are you saying that a yeti is stealing bandwidth?? OMG.
But, from what I could google, the bandwidth stealer is from Tibet?? I
have to wonder just who would profit from that bit of re-direction.
Like the OP, I am on HughesNet with savage restrictions on bandwidth
usage and I would sure be concerned over what or who is stealing it. If
anyone has a clue, I'd be interested in hearing it.
I suppose the OP could run Iceweasel in secure mode (no addons) and
slowly add the addons back, one at a time, to see if he can spot an
offender ~IF~ there isn't something else installed like Seti that could
easily account for the unattended usage. Beats me, Ric
