Question Network Trouble - Dodgy IT professoional??

Hey guys and gals,

Ive just taken over an IT co-ordinator position at work. We contract work out to an 'IT Guru' who happens to be a friend of the person who just left.

According to the 'GURU' our network cannot be hacked or entered from outside of work. However, the other day the main and most important database program we use crashed and was out for the day, BUT everything else worked fine. His explination was that some has tried to get into the server from outside, and in an attempt has reset the server IP addresses. HE is the one who originally set up our network/ server/ pc's.

How true is this? Or is he trying to make me feel threatened?
How can i tell exactally whats going on?? im a graduate and feel he is pulling the wall over my eyes.

Thanks all

LOL HE Probably did it. Request all the network login info, make sure its not set up for remote access.
