I've found something odd in my system monitor. In my process list was 'ssh-agent', now I'm not too familiar with SSH but I know that it can't be normal for an SSH service to be running on a VANILLA desktop Ubuntu installation. I've ran rkhunter and it came back with nothing in particular.
I ran this command and here are the results:
trev@trev-pc:~$ ps -aux | grep ssh trev 1635 0.0 0.0 11140 48 ? Ss Feb18 0:00 /usr/bin/ssh-agent /usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session /usr/bin/im-launch mate-session trev 15992 0.0 0.0 15192 2144 pts/1 S+ 20:06 0:00 grep --color=auto ssh
What's going on here? Is this something to be concerned about?
