    If you've seen this in top or in a ps, you're likely not being attacked. It's indicating root is logged in securely, but not through a tty (no tty).. like through sftp, rsync, scp, etc..

    You could always run netstat however to verify it's a friendly that's on there.. maybe your backup server or something..

    I was trying to set up my dedi and I got this, thanks for the explanation.

    The other articles I read were all technical jargon (blergh).

    Hate to open an old thread, but this was exactly it. Was running an scp session.

    Thanks.
