I found out someone was using it on my system. I'm not using any software to access databases, or anything. While I was having a party this past weekend, one of my Linux buddies decided to show off while he was pissed at me, and put in on there. I want to know if anybody knows what it does, and if I should worry. Thanks.

Probably not, it is a SSH client application, we use it here at school to access the network from the dorms and do our programming on.

I use PuTTy all the time, just a command prompt-based SSH client (or SSH key generator 'PuTTygen.exe' ) -- harmless... its what he MAY have downloaded/uploaded to/from the particular SSH server he connected to.
