    Perhaps this question would be more appropriate in a Redhat (or hackers) forum, but I thought I would try here first...

    A user (possibly maliciously) has created a folder named ".. " (not to be confused with the usual ".." and "." aliases), which is causing problems. The thing is I can't get into the folder or delete it.

    Does anybody know a way to deal with this?

    Thanks.

    Okay, deleteing the entire parent directory seemed to work.

    The directory had a program called psybnc in it, which I think can be used as a sniffer? Looked dodgy to me.
