    I have sent a message to the webmaster - I don't know if that is the most direct route though?

    Yes...a virus scan. Are those things still around? I remember that Linux has only had very few viruses throughout its existance and the proper administrator would have the common sense to not open every file they get their hands on. But I don't think a virus scan would be of much use on this Linux server.

    And for those that question me, I use Linux and haven't gotten a virus. Even that new "universal" virus for both Windows and Linux. The problem is that in Linux, everything is permission based and won't run unless told to. So for a virus to complete its goal, one has to log in as root and run it. Otherwise, the virus can't do anything.

    Of course there are rootkits, but this server most likely has programs installed to detect them (I know most Debian servers come with them default).

    So all this is was apparently somebody taking advantage of a known security hole in Apache, OpenSSH, or I think ProFTPd and utilizing that for their advantage. Otherwise, it's just a scriptkiddie who likes to bruteforce passwords.
