Hi all, could someone please advise if I can get some assistance to work out what has compromised my Linux OS, how to remedy it and where to post for that help (i.e in this forum or the malware and virus removal forum which seems to be dedicated to Windows OS)?

Thanks for any assistance and clarification.

It would be highly unusual for your Linux OS to be infected with a virus,but it is not impossible! Post over in the Am I Infected forum and someone will be able to help you.Also - do you have Timestamp installed on your system? It is a great tool for restoring you computer to an earlier date when everything was working well!-Paul

Thank you Paul88ks & Platypus for your help.

Now that my post has been placed in the correct forum (thanks Platypus) I will add some information in respect to what I have seen and why I feel that the OS is compromised and see how I go.
