Hi. I was reading an article that I found in the Linux Mint forum. It had this link :

http://www.sophos.com/security/blog/2008/09/1748.html

It was talking about the Linux/Rst-B. What is this and how do we know if we're infected and how to get rid of or protect from?

Thanks
Tom

I googled "identify clients infected with Linux/Rst-B"; this seems to be a (technical, but) useful page:

Thanks. Does this mean that this affect servers only/ It don't affect individual system? Sorry, but kind of confusing. :confused:

Thanks

As far as I understand it can possibly affect any system.
