I am through with the basic stuff like this.
I was hoping for some hotshot admin hand to offer some more sophisticated
thoughts and leads.

I did installed (as mentioned in the opening mail). Nothing more than that.

Weird stuff.
I was wondering (there was no real basis for this) if my changing the
nameserver entries to opendns in resolv.conf made me vulnerable in
some way and there was some mischief like rootkit installation. I checked
for rootkits just to be sure. Nothing threatening found.

I have installed the application again ;-)
