  1. On the 8th of this month I "allowed" a company to take over my Mac computer in order to correct a Word Program malfunction. I am worried that a backdoor was placed. Will Snort be able to detect suspicious activity? I am not savvy enough to wipe and re-install data from the 8th backward, nor am I CERTAIN an intrusion even took place.
    What should I do?
