Hello List,

On one of our K12LTSP servers at the middle school which is a remote
location from were I am at, I have noticed lots of 'makedev' processes
always running as of late. I also noticed that this server has been
accessed by an unknown/unauthorized IP address. I've run rkhunter on this
daily and of course it is showing the checksums are not correct now:(. If
I do a' killall makedev ' the proceses still are shown running in top.
When i do a ' ps aux | grep makedev ' nothing is shown running. I m
assuming this runs ' at kernel level'?..dduuhh not sure. Ive also done a
few netstat commands to try and figure out what is spawning the makedev
processes. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Don't have a clue here.
K12ltsp v 4.4.1
