    I was referring to the idle head that created the deb and posted it on gnome-look.

    I appreciate any help that came from the people here in the thread.
    OK, I had to ask. I am definitely grateful for the folks here that are figuring this problem out and I am happy that the OP noticed something that didn't look right.

    It felt so wrong to fix this by being safe by loading Windows...

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    while :
    do
    check=`ps -o pid,cmd -A | egrep '\bwget\b|\bping\b'`
    
    if [ -n "$check" ]; then
        echo "!!-> pid $check <-!!"
    fi
    
    sleep 1
    
    done
    It shouldn't produce any output unless someone runs ping or wget:
    Code:
    root ~/shell: ./check.sh 
    !!-> pid 28140 ping bbc.co.uk <-!!
    !!-> pid 28140 ping bbc.co.uk <-!!
    !!-> pid 28140 ping bbc.co.uk <-!!
    !!-> pid 28140 ping bbc.co.uk <-!!
    !!-> pid 28140 ping bbc.co.uk <-!!
    !!-> pid 28140 ping bbc.co.uk <-!!
    Which ping and wget do not start by themselves.
    Thanks very much for this.
    Can be run without super yes?

    then they just add a gksu or something to the script
    most people don't know inside what kind of package a screensaver should be.
    FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!

    However, it does show the holes in the existing system. It's a wonderful system, but it does still follow this theory that the root user can do no wrong, which is just incorrect because not all "admins" are that bright!

    We need to install packages like this (screensavers etc) for OUR USER ONLY BY DEFAULT, so damage is contained.

    Now that would make sense and I am thinking of those new to the Linux experience... it can be all so daunting and easy to slip up on good admin practice. On one hand we're trying to push Linux out to the masses but we don't have clarity (for the newbie / casual user) on what is good practice! I think part of the solution in Ubuntu would be a user friendly firewall by default with sensible settings. And perhaps a beginners guide on where to install from (this ain't windows - stick to the repos and you will be safe).
