I have a Linux box at rackspace which has been hacked, I've recreated the box on a different VM, but, and I don't know if there's an answer to this, is it conceivable that data files can carry a Trojan/backdoor  if I move them to a new server (esp .mp3 files) ?
I don't know if it's safe to migrate them over.
