So I’ve had GREAT experiences with Linux, recently i've been questioning more if those experiences are malicious. Separate systems i have previously run seemed to be compromised via web services and privileges. OS was not a factor and this seemed to transmit to livecd, USB, Devices and even wifi.. I have reason to believe maybe cloud services now..
Are there currently lists of installed Ubuntu 12.10 programs/services/updates I could verify with?
It would seem these are robotic and non-admin controlled leading me to the conclusion its more takeover scripts of some-sorts compromising admin of connections, kernels and services .. is any of this making any sense to senior users? How can I be sure and contain any transmission?
