I think I was infected by a website, one that I thought was ok by the content.


I ran a scan with rkhunter and chkrootkit, they both produced some negative stuff, one was malware of some-kind.  The others were warnings and such.


I tried to access the logfiles to be prepared but could not pull them up.  Can't believe I got infected with my new linux OS.

Since you are receiving help in this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/545432/linux-mint17-infection/ I am closing this one to avoid potential confusion. Please note that the preparation guide for posting in this forum is geared towards Windows OS's. Other tools are needed to diagnose Linux OS's.
