mount: warning: /etc/mtab is not writable (e.g. read-only filesystem).
It's possible that information reported by mount(8) is not
up to date. For actual information about system mount points
check the /proc/mounts file.
OK, as it said, the content of /etc/mtab may be not accurate because it can't be written to that file. So it seems to me that your entire /-partition is mounted read-only. This normally only happens when the system recognizes errors on that partition and re-mounts the partition read-only to prevent further damage. The output of
should show that the filesystem is read-only. I would recommend to run fsck on that partition to fix any errors and then reboot the machine.
// Before we continue with our regular broadcast I'd like to point out that if you didn't put SIPVicious there (as that's what this "svcrack.py" is from) then you've got a major problem as it's used for auditing cracking SIP based VoIP systems and deleting the files isn't the end of it.
You could try running 'mount / -o remount,rw' but usually a file system goes read-only ('man tune2fs': "-e read-only") due to file system level problems which you need to fsck before doing anything else.
