comment I keep getting write failed:broken pipe on ssh after 2 mins of inactivity
@Hennes, you are right, that could be fixed too. In my case changing the network interface to static was the best solution because it is a remote hosting that has its own static IP, i rather configure it that way for obvious reasons, but as you pointed, the DHCP lease can be configured and that would probably fix it too, thanks for your comment.

comment Compromised Debian server sending DDOS attack
Well, i can ssh on "rescue mode" and mount the problematic file system, I checked logs in the server, also searched for any file modified last week, checked the system for rootkits or virus but i found nothing suspicious. I moved the /var/www folder completely to a new location to avoid any possible wordpress , joomla vulnerability but as i told you, when i reboot the system normally, pinging does not respond, therefor the ssh login is not possible and the server is sending a lot of outbound packets. Is there a way to modify grub so that only the very default is loaded at boot?

It is a hosted server with online.net so i do not have physical access to the server. When i reboot normally from the online.net console pings do not respond, i cannot login via ssh with my user password as i used to do before, and the statistics page (also in online.net console) traces those packet sent peaks as shown in attached image

comment Remove Internet Explorer Address Bar URL History from Run dialogue?
Maybe it doesn't work but you said it has nothing to do, and that is not right. Remember that we are always trying to help. What os are you running, vista, windows 7, .. ?

i understand that you want to hide internet explorer history from the run combobox in the Start Menu, right? if so, then this does have something to do with your question

Ok, much better. Launch chrome from the terminal with -incognito flag and remove the extension.
