    Extreme newbie -- I noticed today a new directory on my server and a corresponding account that had been set-up as a FTP user as well (same name as the directory). Anonymous ftp is disabled and I use pure-ftpd, had previously installed APF and have run chkrootkit without problem. I've already changed the password on the server.

    Nothing has been uploaded but I asume this is a pretty bad omen. I've followed the howto elsewhere in this forum about securing a server, but this has still taken place.

    Any suggestions on approaches to take from this point would be much appreciated.
