Mandriva firewall turned off
After a kernel update yesterday, the PC hung for a while during reboot and I so started reading the boot messages from which I noticed that the firewall wasnt starting.
After the system booted I went into my personal firewall settings and found it was set to "allow all (no firewall)".
I definitely did not set this up like this, so my question is could a package update have caused this or is it likely that my system has been hacked and the firewall turned off?
Is there a way I can tell from the system logs?
Edit: OK.Too many weird things happening. Root is denied access to a lot of stuff!!
I am going to format the hard-drive. I may as well take the opportunity to try a different distro!
