Livestreaming the screen of linux computer

Is it likely tis for someone to livestream the screen of a computer running Manjaro ARM or any other Linux?

How would you detect if someone is livestreaming the screen of your computer?

Not without your permission, no.

You didn’t happen to have received a certain email demanding the payment of a given amount of money in Bitcoin, did you? :wink: If you did, it’s bogus. We’ve been getting those too at one of the forums I administer, in the inbox of a headless server in a rack. :man_facepalming:

Your network traffic would be up.

why would my network traffic be up?

Do you have any idea of the amount of data that would be streaming up from your computer if your screen were being livestreamed somewhere?

(Well, unless your screen resolution is 640 x 480 pixels, maybe.)

Let me bounce back the question to you… What makes you think someone would be livestreaming your desktop?
