Thread: Bizarre File Keeps Appearing In Home Directory

    Exclamation Bizarre File Keeps Appearing In Home Directory

    Every once in a while, a file called Cnppdf32Log\debuglog.txt appears in my home directory.
    Yes, it is called like that. This obviously looks like something trying to write to a Windows
    path. Is it a security compromise?

    The machine is running OpenSUSE 12.1 64-bits will all updates applied.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you had typed nppdf32Log into google, it would have told you that its
    Acrobat Reader's fault. Why am I not surprised?

    Thanks! Now I feel silly. I typed it but think I must have missed a 'P' and got nothing. Guess I can stop being paranoid about this file though.

    I have it in my home, not in root (yet). I deleted it.
    Funny!

    Hmm, the obvious wild guess is - who's been running Adobe Reader as root
    then?

    Apologies if I've just insulted you

    it was a good guess Dave, but i while i don't know about 'idanan' i can
    assure you that i've _never_ run any Adobe exec as root, and today (when
    i check) i'm surprised to see:

    [code]
    _@linux-os114:~> locate nppdf32Log
    /Cnppdf32Log\debuglog.txt
    /home/_/Documents/Cnppdf32Log\debuglog.txt
    _@linux-os114:~>
    [code]

    so ??
