I was under the impression linux systems could not get a virus. Lucky me, I got one! First I noticed all the media apps on my machine, Only one of which i ever used were recently used. I went to the file tree and clicked on a few folders and noticed EVERY ONE of my folders and files had a "desktop" link in it.I tried to delete the link or send it to the trash can but that just made things worse because it would replicate two more. I also noticed my mail accounts had been set up and my entire file system was replicating, migrating to mail accouunt and beeing mailed somwhere. By the way, I use an on line mail service so I didnt set up any mail service on my machine. Somebody or something did. I think could not erase any of my browser history. I think it came from a rougue adobe pop up I clicked on. Most of the problems seemed to centered around my Adobe flash player. I opened the program file and it had a huge amount of my info in it. From every site I visited to were my pass words were used. (unless thats normal) to when i logged on and off my machine. I ended up formatting my hsrd drive and reinstalling fedora this morning. Even that was rough. It took me four tries till I finally got it to reinstall properly. Has anyone else had this type of plroblem or heard of anyone that has? I read up on this clickjack attack and insalled ghostery and no script. they seem to be the best tools for avoiding this in the future. Im new to the computer world and would be open to any other sugestions on how to steer clear of this hacker/virus bullsh**!
