My bullies hacked my ubuntu desktop and i'm having a hard time finding someone to have a look at it, even after posting jobs at the major freelance sites. I can pay up to 300 so it is not that i want a sucker to work for free. Any advice would be appreciated. I'm getting really desperate.
Any specific reasons why you would want a contractor in the first place? If it's a machine of some importance then I'd say trawl your local LUG for help if you require physical presence or ask the for pointers to reputable and thrustworthy people. If you're adamant you should shell out wads of cash for a formal investigation then expect to pay much more than that. Else (not implying we are of ill repute or not worthy of at least some form of trust ;-p), isn't this something we could deal with slash guide you through in the Linux Security forum?
Any seasoned member of the forum feel free to have a look at it, if he finds something he'll get $300 and I'll donate $100 to the forum. It's a 1.3Gb clonezilla gzipped image. I've contacted more than 100 people on elance, freelancer, odesk, guru since december and my bullies have prevented me from completing any deal so I'm quite positive that this desktop is compromised. Help me bring down these retard hats!
What leads you to believe the system was compromised?
Digging around a Gig's worth of data for an unspecified something-or-other is worse than the adage "finding a needle in a haystack." The haystack owner believes there is *something* in the haystack, but doesn't know what. could be a needle, could be a nail, could be nothing.
For $50, I'll give you a short list of apps you should be using to give you an idea of what you should be running on a system to reliably audit it on a daily basis.
