I'm running MandrivaLinux x64 2011 (KDE4) updated behind a commercial Trendnet
I notice I've begun receiving spam emails supposedly from people in my address
book (thunderbird). When I run 'top' I don't find any obvious intruder
files. Having received three of these now, all from different addresses and
people, I suspect my computer is compromised.
This prompted me to check my security settings. Turns out I had left the
firewall down from my last full re-install a couple of weeks ago. It's back up.
Any suggestions for ridding a Linux system of malware?
