    i was trying to connect to a friends computer through shh just to mess around. (he was sitting beside me) i typed in shh and his stuff and this crazy message came up.



    i also notice that netinfo manager is gone?? anybody know what this means?


    anther edit:

    Just changed the pass to my enabled root account. Then checked it, and found the second attachment in my recent items, and ive never really used that account.

    i know logkext is a keylogger and there was also an unregistered copy of undercover, another program. And what the heck is menu cracker!!??

    Is it a possibility someone has "connected" to my root account? Nobody would have physical access to my machine and know the password btw.

    Just delete the known_hosts file and you'll be fine.

    I've had it before, is it the message you get when connected to certain networks? That's when mine started to appear. Since then, I have reinstalled Tiger So I wouldn't be able to look into it.

    The . at the beginnng of the directory name means its hidden from normal view. The directory is there from the picture you posted. If you type in:

    cd /Users/yourusername/.ssh

    It will move you to that directory. Then type this to get a list of files currently in the directory:

    ls ./

    If you see that known_hosts is in there...then type this...

    rm ./known_hosts

    or
    sudo rm ./known_hosts

    IT IS IMPORTANT THE COMMAND ABOVE IS TYPED IN EXACTLY AS IS.
