Kinda suprised a linux user would use the work "hacked". To give you any help we need more info. What is nicked what versions of software are you using and are you up to date?
I've got a gut feeling you arent hacked, and besides that, Linux PC arent hacked that often. Dont trust my gut feeling though.
unless you;re using a easy password for root or your account
I would feel honored if someone actually hacked my pc.
And you're using linux, so I really doubt it.
Is Windows hacked easily than Linux? Is there really a software concerning in hacking some PC which is available in the web? I guess i have a lot of questions for hackers stuff. But mostly, as far as i know, Linux is better than windows in times of security so say that its not an hacking incident but a virus or bug.
I don't know actually. But I think windows is easy to hack than linux
Well he could be hacked if he used vulnerable software... But if you're using Fedora I think it updates regulary so... Like the people above said, if you have an easy password for root or any of your accounts you can be hacked easily.
Windows has many more holes than Linux even though Linux is free. The only reason Windows is easier to hack is because its more common. Though if its through your email its unlikely that they could do any real damage to your computer eg:format your hard disk. all i can recomend is to have anti-virus software installed.
Perhaps someone else is using your computer physically when you're not there?
if sombody was able to get this far on my ubuntu box and actually cause some damage, then i would praise them and want to meet them. Cause they got some real skill. SO i DOUBT you got HACKED!
