Ok. I had a rootkit on a debian sarge.

it set /bin readonly so i cannot substitute infected binaries

how do i setattr /bin (and /sbin) other than formatting?

You could try running chattr -R -i /bin/* and see if that removes the immutable flag.

it worked: i had to set the directory attributes too. (and give a "-a" too to overwrite infected files)

thank you!
