comment Need help with malware

comment Is it dangerous to serve user-uploaded Flash (SWF) files?
Is content specific to user site only or it can be published publicly for all users ? If not, Legitimate users could be affected if a non-legitimate user uploads a malicious file.

comment OS (or platform) agnostic metrics to understand if a system is compromised?
Another area to look for is to monitor network traffic. This could be as simple as verifying active connections using netstat for over a period of time.

Not aware of your network set-up but is there a need to have sshd open to public ? Is there any firewall involved ?
