great sysadmin I am. NOT. I had tested Freenet some weeks ago and couldn't figure it out, so just killed the process and figured I'd look at it another day. well, as I was troubleshooting a networking issue I ran find / -newer /etc/network/interfaces and found a bunch of files in my own directory, under Freenet/, recently modified. curious, I did more searching and found this in /var/spool/cron/crontabs/jcomeau: @reboot "/home/jcomeau/Freenet/run.sh" start 2>&1 >/dev/null #FREENET AUTOSTART - 8888

gots to be more careful. perhaps this wasn't malicious, but something else may be.
