Hey,

KuroBoxPro ,,, installed Freelink Debian with Samba, DenyHosts and ProFTP.

I got compromised via the guest account, brute force guessing, via SSH.

The hackers loaded a slew of irc bot stuff. Basically it is not worth
trying to pick out the mods. Better to go for a fresh install.

Question ... Do I need to use serial console TTY to reinstall the Debian ... or
is there another method to simply reinstall a fresh Debian Freelink load ?

Thanks,
Don

Best way is via EM as the updater is available. Just use the java updater then to install your Freelink again.

The kuro pro still has an initrd image with the kernel. Its just that it also has a further safety system of a FLASH env. To get to EM mode, simply remove the /boot/hddrootmode file. Please ensure that /boot/uImage.buffalo and /boot/initrd.buffalo exist before you do this.

The updater is called acp_commander and please check the wiki articles before using this. http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Cus ... EM_Mode.29 is a good start.
