Help! My system's been compromised....
I just started using the net from Linux. (Slackware 9.1 upgraded). I have followed a security tutorial and turned of ftp, finger, ntalk etc in the inetd.conf file.
I have a cable connection. Even if nothing is open, I seem to be receiveing packets according to Network Monitor 2.6.1.
NMapfe shows ssh, smtp and another called 'submission'. I am assuming that 'submission' is what I used to log on to my ISP(I got a small client from my ISP to do the authentication with their server). But I'm not sure. How do I find out if its legit and if its not these then why am I receiving packets.
