Since I read about this security breach I examine the security level of my desktop. Actually I downloaded and compiled the latest kernel from kernel.org at 31.Aug.
Because its only my desktop with no important data on it (instead of reinstall) I started to read my logs from the network logging system.
Even if my kernel should be somehow tampered (with some hidden processes) I cannot find any suspicious traffic on network level.
So maybe this can show that the kernel source was not Tampered. (?)
I mean any malicious (modified) part of the kernel which should serve to take control or use my system somehow requires network activity.
