I'm really no security expert. I don't leave the system up 24/7, and I'm on a US DSL connection with a bunch of windows boxes.
Seems to be a recent phenomena, I've started experiencing disk thrashing I can hear across the room. ps and top report cvslockd has been responsible for the thrashing (which usually occurs at a specific time of day (~1 am MST)), but now, find is doing the thrashing at boot every time (within the last week at least). Needless to say, I haven't changed the system in any way during that week. On windows, I'd just assume this to be normal behavior, but on FreeBSD, it's got me worried... I presume the security section of the manual has a good into to detecting intruders, but first I'm interested if there is a legitimate reason for find to be torturing my disk. I don't run much on my system - apache, cvs, portsnap, ssh, that's about it.
