The SuSE security lists is having a little discussion about a possible
hacked SuSE 8.2 machine. The machine is running a pre-7 PHPNuke CMS
which could be the entryway for the injection. There is a rather big
chance the system has been injected a script which downloaded stuff from
The biggest file you can find on this machine in this directory is a
gzipped file which probably contains a rootkit of some sort. The SuSE
list is still trying to figure out what the rest does/is and how this
fits into the "big picture".
So, if you are in the mood to play around a little it would be really
interesting what you may have say about the stuff in this directory.
thanks a lot,
