Keyloggers and spywares


Does anyone know what these files are?

out.exe
upg000.exe
languard.exe
plasmscr.exe
dsb.exe
helpw.exe
digitalsound.exe
exe.exe

If I have a keylogger in my pc, do you know how I can manage to detect the ip of the pc is spying me?

Thank you

strange.. how did these files get on your system ? and why ?
exe's (executable windows MIME type) will not run on linux.

maybe you are running a ftp / ssh server that was compromised and some script kiddy uploaded these tools without realisedinf he's found a linux box ??????

anyways.. if you are certain you are being spyed on, have a look at netstat, and make a note of any ip addresses yoou should not be connected to.

also, use rkhunter or chkrootkit to search for any installed root kits.

Not a Linux - Security question. Moving thread to the General forum.
