In the recent past, someone broke into, and basically planted a bunch of backdoor software. I don't know what they hoped to gain from access to what is essentially a personal server with limited bandwidth available to it. Fortunately for me, they did a pretty crappy job of covering up their tracks, even locking me out of my own server (bright script kiddies!). Since then, I've been meaning to upgrade my version of Linux in order to try and recover from the damage. I finally got around to it, and upgraded to version 6.x of Redhat Linux. The upgrade was so easy, I'm wondering why I was dreading it for so long. With the exception of a tweak to a couple of config files, everything seems to be running again as usual.
