Windows 7: I am hearing someones mic sound through my speakers

03 Apr 2012   #31

Windows 10 64bit

I had something similar about 5 years ago but it was ads going off in the background and I made it go away by quickly unplugging my ethernet cord and then scanning with my antivirus and malwarebtyes and it found a trojan. So I would scan my system with the internet disconnected if I were you.

XP Home, 32 Bit

Hi anybody - I just thought I would ad something quick here as this really freaked me out too.

I have no definate answer to this, as some have said they'd disconnected from the Internet etc., but here's what happened to me....

I had gone on YOUTUBE, listening to a tune while I work. My PC is as safe as I can have it, i've worked in computing for 30 years, and do all the same stuff as many others - building, repairs, programming etc. etc.

I assumed the music on youtube had been badly created as I could hear some background sounds...knocks, bumps, coughs etc. But when I lowered the volume, the new sounds stay the same volume - indicating its 'not' thru my own PC as that should be software controlled by Windows XP volume as normal.

I listened, and heard all the things others have heard, a person, in a room somewhere, passing time, typing, even playing a few keys on a musical keyboard, mouse clicks, paper moving/ripping.

No volume alterations stopped it. Unplugging speakers didnt affect it, the sound carried on as soon as I plugged the headphones back in.

I shut down the youtube website, that didnt stop it. I closed all system processes I didnt need, still no change. The only thing I find that linked with somebody else here that seems odd is...Sfox (member on here) said he/she had been on a website for answering questions - and it happens I too had been there, by accident as its a trick site, a pest site that will just waste people efforts to get help.

I shut that site down to, it carried on till i completely shut all website connections down in Task Manager - ahhhh, silence.

And now, i cannot get the problem back

So what can it be? if it was a trojan/hack, why would it be backwards? (me hearing them instead of them hearing me?).

The mystery continues, but I had to come on here and mention it just as everybody else has - never heard anything like this, though I have dealt with radio wave sounds being passed around. But again like others, I have nooobody near me close enough to emit power to hit my speakers.

If i ever find an answer, i will returnnnnn

That's true ex_brit, but in the UK we only use the digital system now and that has to be decoded. I'm not sure what other parts of the world are using now.

If the cell phone's still on analogue the sound will pass over, but if it's digital, it has to be decoded at the other end, so we'd only hear static and garbage noise if the signal is accidentally being picked up on something (or deliberately grabbed by a hacker etc.).
This was part of the reason for such things going digital - privacy, so that nobody else could easily just grab data/conversations and copy them.

I think the most odd part is, that we are all (it seems) hearing the same noises no matter where we live in the world. If it happens again, im going to patch my speaker socket to my mic socket and record it so others can hear it. i wonder if such sounds are on youtube somewhere ?

The mystery continues lol

I think we use digital too. I don't get the actual speech but an electronic sort of static. I tested it using my own mobile (bows to the fact you are in the UK...LOL) and it does it. I read somewhere that it also can happen if the system isn't grounded sorry Earthed properly.

I'm beginning to forget the old lingo, apologies.

Browser type

I had the exact same problem. It stops when I close chrome.Has happened twice this week. Definitely a recording. Is this some form of infection on chromes part or has anyone found it using other browsers?

Windows 7 32

This happened to me like 3 times the past weeks. It sounds like when you see an advertisement of a videochat, sometimes I heard a woman speaking and she spoke in english (im from Spain, so that rules out that it might be a sound from the real world).
Curiosly, my Firefox was closed at the time, and so was any other explorer. I closed any aplication while the sound was on and none of them worked. It lasted for a minute or so. I was not using the computer when it happened.

To me, It feels like some kind of advertisement mistake, maybe because of flash player, maybe because of my adblock, but it feels like its a shadow of an advertisement i should have heard some other time.

W7 home premium 64 bit

Just had the same thing happen to and i was on askmefast for a brief moment looking for answer for somethign on FB.
So I'm goin with the explanation that is some weird ad program runnin from that site
I just noticed the little ad box on the left of that site and the sounds wer very similar. it appears to be a chat help thign and the people you see act like they can see you But really they cannot. i had my webcam covered up during this. Maybe it dumps a cookie on the pc so it can keep running after you nav away from the site or close it out.
But the strange part for me was i disconnected the internet totally and the audio still ran.

can't remember

I had the same confusion for a few minutes while I had askmefast open. Couldn't find the source for a bit, shut off the internet & it kept running --obviously the video loaded into my cache. It was a "Live Chat" box in the left sidebar running a vid of a person acting like they could see me, waiting for me to type is a question. Freaked me out for a few until I finally found the source.
