Re: [suse-security] Intrusion spyware malware key stroke detection
I wrote an agent that watches current google search queries in realtime

This is not hard to do, either. I suspect this is what's going on.
Log into your machine as root and do a ps aux and show us the output. I
highly doubt there is a piece of malware
running, but it's worth checking for.
