different users profile has been created

archieshukla
Hi there,

I am IT analyst and i have noticed today that some of our network machine got windows profile of different users on network machine. Don't know whether this is because of some virus or software. has anyone come across such issue before?

Thanks for your time.

    Anyone on the network can log onto any machine on the network with there own account, once the user signs in it will create a new profile if that user never logged onto that machine before.

    Hope that helps, not a virus or anything.

    But here, no user has logged on to those machines. I could see profile of users who are based in different office and never logged on to those machine.

    The machine may have come from another office, check the event logs. Look at when the folder was created under the user.
