For anyone who considers looking for my email address and emailing me about his programming problem like this guy:

I just came across your profile on Stackoverflow. I hope this isn't
too intrusive but I desperately need some help with Python.
I'm new to programming and I'm currently trying to tackle two very
basic questions which I'm seriously struggling with.

NO, I will NOT help you in private. The fact that my website is not a programming site or personal technical blog should be reason enough for you not to use its contact form (or an email listed there) to contact me.

You need to reinstall AT LEAST anything the compromised user had access to. If you are not completely sure that there were no local root exploits on the machine, reinstall the whole machine. And of course, you need to find out how the malware was inserted and close that hole.

It's Eclipse-based. I wouldn't call that "nice" :p

comment ata: failed command: WRITE FPDMA QUEUED / hard resetting link
It's software (md) raid. And no matter how good the SMART test is - how can running it make that problem go away?
