No idea! :-)

I'm using a backport of chkrootkit, specifically Norbert's, it says:
chkrootkit version 0.43
But for all I know "better diagnostics" doesn't really imply that it
can't be a false negative...
BTW, the traffic has just seized, so my ISP has apparently been able to
pin it down. I have sent them a message asking what happened, but
haven't got a response.
I really feel like sending the people responsible for this machine an
invoice for two days of consultancy, that's the real cost for me.
People need to realize that damage inflicted on others is also a part
of Windows TCO... At least to see what happens.
