Re: am I hacked?
False alerts or rootkit?
I got a lot of similar (no root among users, but a lot of
"admin", "administrator" etc.) attempts to connect to my ssd(some from
the McGill University in Montreal ... they might have a compromised host
on the ip-s that belonged to the electrical engineering dep. in 1994..
if anyone is from there, let them know, because the contact they filed
in 1994 does not exit anymore and their lawyers don't seem to care).
the attempts continued even after I disabled sshd, and my firewall
reports communication (syn, ack ... I did not log outgoing traffic)
from a single foreing host (from Koreea) on my 22 port.
eth0 seems to be entering promiscuous mode from time to time,
without this being reported in logs.
chkrootkit 0.43 reports processes that can not be seen with ps and
Warning: Possible LKM Trojan installed.
but rkhunter 1.1.8 found nothing.
I am running debian sarge, with kernel 2.6.7, with modules enabled.
I did run Gtk-Gnutella, but almos a month ago, and in the meantime I
did a clean install and now I do not have gtpk-gnuetlla
installed on the system, nor other p2p software.
