Seg Fault Help
Posted on 2005-03-21
One of my associates came into his office today to find pages of defunct cron processes on his fedora linux box. He attempted to reboot the machine but got a seg fault error. From what I can gather, the error message is a long one and mentions line 70 of etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit and error 35 seg fault.
Over the weekend, he also received a report from a firm who had received attempts from that IP and a SBC DSL modem out of Chicago, IL to ssh into one of their servers without success so before he even got to the office today, we were wondering if the box had been compromised.
Anyone have any helpful suggestions or any idea what these errors most likely mean?
