I'm sorry to hear that, but I wondered if you'd found a root kit as I'd

Now everyone repeat after me: "I will check for and apply security patches on a
regular basis." :-)  Seriously, most if not all distributions have either a
mailing list or place on their website that lists known security exploits.
Everyone that is connected to the internet, especially those who have a
broadband connection, should be closely watching for exploits and taking the
appropriate measure to close them.
