Retired from the forums
GCC has been carrying around a few root-kits in their repositories. I had one for a short while before it became active. When my system started acting up, I located it by looking for discrepancies that came by gcc-4.7-*update.tar.gz. These files may also have numbered dates in the name. So, I decided to read it in SciTE. Lo and behold if the 733t15t 4553mb73r5 (elitist assemblers) weren't back in mass talking between assembly data.
- There are plain messages in the text. Read and pick them up because they leave trails.
- The thing self destructs after you read it. So, if you are going to decode, do it fast and then copy-paste it to another part to read.
- GCC by itself has patchy behavior which is being exposed en masse by Clang.
- Do yourself a favor and destroy the original.
- Some root-kit systems work with two parts. I'm guessing a sender and a receiver. Without both parts, it becomes useless.
