    music.raw in my /var/www

    Hi,
    I just found a music.raw file in my /var/www folder. I have no idea how it came about. Is there a way to find out what happened? Is this something you have seen before?

    Thanks!

    What are the permissions on /var/www?

    Code:
     ls -ld /var/www/

    Found these:
    http://forums.opensuse.org/archives/...-raw-file.html
    http://forums.fedoraforum.org/archiv.../t-247203.html

    In computer-time, those threads are beyond ancient so keep that in mind. Hopefully they give you a little more information about where a music.raw file would come from.

    But if you're concerned about it being malicious you can do a little investigating using this guide.

    If nobody can answer your question, you may consider to contact me. Maybe I can answer your question as I am a certified ethical hacker.

    That would be great Samiux. How about you share your knowledge with the whole forum, right here?
