I saw a link about CrossRat Malware on Quora, is this Malware a problem on Ubuntu 14.04?
I have not been able to find the location listed for linux on my Ubuntu. Also I generally have Java shut off in my browser(Which should be safe?) but on occasion I turn it on(Not safe?), I played a java game a while back but I'm not sure if it was before the crashes or after.
I'm asking because I have been having fairly regular random crash problems on Firefox and very very very occasionally on gThumb, no other APP's/packages seem to have the crashing problem.
I have replaced Firefox with a Mobile Firefox version but no change what so ever in Firefox crashes. Addins make no difference, none or my usual zillion addins still same, Random Firefox crashes, sometimes long periods it works fine, other times crash after crash after crash.
I have used synaptic package managers fix broken packages, I have also updated.... and any other things I have read about in search that listed app/package crashes, no change on anything.
I did get ubuntu to break on a Nvidia driver install(Shoulda stayed with Nouveau driver.), got her back all on my own, I'm pretty proud of that. :)
By the way, before you answer "CrossRAT is a cross-platform remote access Trojan that can target four popular desktop operating systems, Windows, Solaris, Linux, and macOS..." So please don't give me the standard Linux does things different than windows virus bit, as this is one case where that does not apply, as this blipin POS works in Linux.
Also Denebian was mentioned in the article but not Ubuntu. Also the majority of virus detectors will not find this POS according to the article.
