Re: [tlug] hack attack from localhost?

You would have to provide more information about your machine for anyone
to make sense of your logs.

You will need to look at everything.

A quicker way is to use an existing program called  chkrootkit.

Root kits popup listeners all over the place while replacing your system
tools with ones that hide the listeners process.

Root kit check checks for all types of things you would have never
thought to look at.

Also, a good internal test might be to nmap the box for the local network.

Then run netstat -lna.

If they ports don't match up, this might might indicate that your box
may have been compromised.

I think there is a freebsd port for chkrootkit.
