@pinniger Change your ftp password anyway, make sure only machines with av's have it. Someone at a internet cafe could also jack your password. Another option is to look for files like fckedtor or old versions php-mailer, they where really common worms. You could try removing the write bit from all files (chmod 500 is usually best). However, this is just addresses the symptom of the problem.

@Longpoke yeah if his local machine has a virus that is sniffing for ftp, then yeah he needs an anti-virus. I have personally cleaned up sites that where affected by this.

comment What is the best Solid State File System (SSDFS) for Linux?
Actually this is a better link saying that non-ssdfs's are bad, although it also goes on to say that some manufactures will use a microcomputer to implement ware leveling. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wear_leveling#Rationale

@Graeme Donaldson en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_file_system says that ware leveling is done by the file system.

comment Apache Probes — what are they after?
I am pretty sure this is just a directory traversal TEST and not an actual exploit, they are probably looking for LFI/RFI.

comment What information can an outsider obtain from my system by knowing only the IP address?
+1 Yes, a port scan is way useful. It looks like no one else on this thread knows what this means.

comment Is it ethical to hack real systems?
Corporations pay large sums of money to penetration testers to break into their own systems. A good penetration tester will use a live exploit to break in and leverage the issue to find more vulnerabilities. It comes down to permission.

comment Got Hacked. Want to understand how
@grawity most people don't use "ftps", but that will keep you from getting hacked. sftp is more popular.

comment E-mail sent with postfix are marked as spam
@Chris S I have said absolutely nothing about a residential internet connection, I think you are tripping. This is a dedicated server at a real hosting company.

comment E-mail sent with postfix are marked as spam
I don't think Postfix needs to talk to Google. Further more I fail to see why I should allow incoming 25 if i'm not accepting incoming email (except for bounces which i'm choosing to ignore because each email address has to be registered)

comment Improving VPN performance - stronger encryption = more performance?
The use of AES will increase bandwidth usage by only a few bytes because its a block cipher, the use of RC4, a stream cipher will not use increase bandwidth by a single bit vs a plain text transfer.
