Hi. I had done a fresh install of Gentoo. Installed a few drivers needed. Installed x11.org . installed Gnome.
My computer was then left without any connection to the internet and was shutdown & unplugged for alittle over a month.
I reconnected and powered it up for the first time since. Not even 5 minutes after booting up to run updates and installs, I watched
as someone had taken remote control of my system and running commands to force download files from some ftp server.
How do I regain control of the system and secure it or am I SOL and having to reinstall from scatch again?
I know the information is located some where in the handbook but I was not locating it.
How do I protect a new install from future events of things repeating?
