    Wondering if anyone here has had any experience with these particular infections.

    They are extremely commonly used by a very large group of spammers for turning unwitting unix hobbyist servers into DNS and web hosts. I and a few colleagues have been documenting what we've been able to glean from several rampant break-ins, but I thought I'd ask here.

    Thanx in advance.

    Hi spamislame,

    Have you reported the infections and your observations to CERT or any any other agency for watching?
