spyware causing heavy traffic
i always thought linux is free of spyware n viruses ... but today i had a hint of it .. my network monitor is showing heavy traffic ... inspite of me using internet .. even i am not sitting at p.c still its doing heavy downloading .. and i didnt put anything on download neither i have kept system on update ? these symptoms are reminding me of WINDOZE days ... can it be possible spyware .. i never heard of spyware in context to linux .. do linux have spyware ? i tried to get into my process table n track it .. but not much success ... tried netstat ... but still not much success ...
does anyone have any idea ? do linux really have spywares !! i m really disappointed , although tht is digestable ..
thnks and regards
