    being hacked?

    Hello,
    I have a personal site based on PostNuke 0726, running in a PC at home on a linux debian system, I have an adress provided by dyndns.
    I thing my site is being hacked, probably by some "@#??$%$ friends", since my "home server" works extremely slow, which did not happend before.
    And if I make it work in localmode, my "server" works again at ordinary speed.
    My knoweledge of linux tools is scarce. I wonder if are there in linux, tools to find what kind of attack am I suffering, or to know from what adress am I being hacked..

    Thank You

    Welcome to DevX

    1. Are you sure you are being attacked?
    2. If so, do you know what is being done by the attacker?
    3. Are there any processes running that you do not recognize?
    4. Have you run a virus scan on your computer lately?

    I think you can run file integrity check before you up the server and after you up the server to see it is match.

    I hope this help.

    Check for an Update and make sure that you have the latest version of pnuke installed.

    What do you mean by before? Have you tried doing a few basic test's on the actual server? Have you rebooted it? Checked for hardware/Software issues?
    And if I make it work in localmode, my "server" works again at ordinary speed.
    My knoweledge of linux tools is scarce.
    When you say localmode, do you mean when you access it directly? Could it simply be a matter of your Internet Connection not being sufficient enough to cope with all the connections to your site?

    Maybe get yourself a copy of ettercap and do a few scans of your network and also check your logs and look for any suspicious behaviour, also re-check and make sure all un needed services are disabled.
