Hi Guys,

I left the port for ssh open on my router for only siz hours while I did 
some work from home  (first time I've done it in three years)
and logs show that some Russian signed in to a user account and may or 
may not have downloaded some stuff.

(I know they tried by the commands, but I son't know whether they 
succeeded because perhaps foolishly I repeated the commands to see
whether they would work (they were only wgets of tar files) and was 
initially pleased when it was denied, however the prescence of the files I'm
not sure whether it means I downloaded them, or whether they were denied 
because already there.

Anyway, root last log in was me, how do I tell if anything done. Shall I 
just delete the user. Anyone want a pointer to the files.
Anything else to do.

Oh, Fedora 6.
