Been running linux mint and there is a lot of strange activity watching the firewall (got it on near lockldown). I had to boot into another linux so that i could scan around and eventually by luck, i found my wallet.dat file but it was somewhere far into the root of the drive, locked. 'Files haven been locking, and it has been obvious someone has been able to control my computer remotely. I thought this only happened with windows?

I recovered the money and am now investigating what it could have been, a bug in ubuntu/mint leaving VNC on all day?

I was going to Install Debian last night and the thing hanged probably couldn't handle some generic drivers….

I want something secure and stable and a firewall that works (i could see the person executing a command in /usr to enable variuous firewall options, as i closed them)

Any idea's? I can post up some of the code in the replies some of it loos sophisticated and its writtenin python. Lots of python code, and lots of bitcoin searching.
