    I would run a check on it, unless you feel extremely lucky today.
    RKhunter is your friend.

    I ran it and it came out clear with warnings but said no rootkits.....****! Are my passwords available to be hacked now? For instance if they got my mozilla folder which has saved passwords? I'm so f'ing pissed

    When in doubt... toss it out.
    Security tip #1.

    Change your passwords... and follow up with sequential examinations.

    *EDIT*

    Did you notice anything funky from the errors?
    I'm not pro on rkhunter logs... but you'll see where some of the crappy issues might actually be.

    No I checked into the errors and they said that Ubuntu automatically gives the warnings so I'm not too concerned. Other suggestions to run scans of any sort? I've never been really paranoid, now I'm feeling violated...(yes that is a pun)

    If the only users logged is you, then you should look into changing ALL passwords.
    If you have your important data backed up, re-installation is always an option (last option).

    Otherwise, you could run port scans from your computer. Log files from your router would be handy, if you have that enabled.
    Look for other documentation on your sys logs.

    Even though both say "joel" (which is my user name), this means I have a problem since two are listed??

    Agreed....good points Jay. I think if you do have router logs, you might find some clues but if that leads to somewhere overseas, like China, Good luck on getting any help from them. You might also contact your ISP and see what they have to say.... or just to let them know you think you might have trouble.
