Mystery infestation strikes Linux/Apache Web sites

There are some good posts here. I have always done the MD5 thing on a informal, personal list of libraries and apps (and, of course the kernel. ). I can boot from the install disks (or a live CD, as someone suggested) whenever I want, and check around. Once I know I can trust the basics, I can boot back into the OS, and continue looking around if needed. I'm not even a professional. Seems like some of these "professional" websites are not run by professionals. That's one of the downsides of all of these Windows shops migrating their servers to Linux. You get a bunch of admins that have never learned the basics.
