Re: [vox-tech] not sure what to call it

You mentioned having SSH running. What other services do you have 
running? Have you patched SSH for the off by one error? Have you 
patched for other security problems? I get hit constantly by scans 
for vulnerable SSH, FTP, RPC, etc Linux boxes (not as constantly 
as MS IIS scans though). If you have not secured your box from the 
outside, then you should consider the possibility it has been hacked.
A quick check of this would be to reinstall with hardening measures 
before putting it back on the Internet and see if the problem goes 
away. Include a tripwire or md5sum run in your hardening measures,
burning the results to CD (preferably bootable), so you can check 
for a hack more easily in the future.
