Sorry..I should be a little more clear.. the hacked machine is an older version of SuSe.. 6.1 or 6.3. We cant find any evidence that the machine was actually rooted.. I recommended a backup, format, new install of 6.4.. but the machine has alot of data and it will be really time consuming. I reconsidered and thought that since 6.4 will replace practically everything..including the kernel and all it worth the format?

hey all,
Ive got a friend that possibly has a hacked machine.. and has recently purchased 6.4. Does he have to format the drive and start from almost scratch or will just Updating the system take care of the problem?

thanks much,
