I have a feeling my laptop might be a zombie in a botnet... (not 100% sure though)
When I looked through the processes running, I see a user that looks like a random jumble of text. Like this (not exactly) : "ç?vß"
Strangely, it disappears really quick. And when I manage to catch up and click on it, it disappears and replaces with "root"
Is my laptop a zombie?
and lets assume it is.
What do I have to do to remove it? I'm on a UNIX-based OS
