    Filesystem corruption


    I have a problem, my filesystem seems to show random corruption.

    For example:

    cat /etc/ssh/ssh_config
    �g,����/ƻ2r,���M ��ݠ

    q��3{�<%���d�#U���c(�54�� �,+��d�3�Nr�-
    ����4 ��mްv�u�ACt�C���T��/��%�$�mϯk&�{�`l�B ��F�E�=�P!dݰ�O��&}6�tHEV�H�P�)T��p

    This has happened to many files, they suddenly contain random garbage.

    Fsck seems to say the filesystem contains no errors I tried to run it multiple times.

    Any ideas on how to debug this problem?

    Hello and Welcome.
    I can't really help with the debug but I will tell you that if you have not already done so, you need to start making backups of all your important files.

    How did you run fsck? Give us a walk through on what you have done so far.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    what if you reinstall openssh-server? does it fix the file?

    you might try
    file /etc/ssh/sshd_config
    stat /etc/ssh/sshd_config

    If it's filesystem, restart machine and get into grub.

    From there modify the current kernel with 'e'. Modify the kernel again with 'e'. Look for rhgb quiet. remobe rhgb quiet and replace it with: init=/bin/bash

    press <enter> and when it takes you back to previous page, press 'b' to boot.

    Once it drops you into terminal issue: /sbin/fsck -y
