I dont think it is a virus rather it is culture of
some chaps out there.
1. Check /etc/passwd for default shell then peek into
.profile to find something unusual.
2. U can change ur root password from lilo prompt by
lilo: linux init=/bin/bash rw
then change the password using passwd and once again u
can check to login.
3.If nothing works and "only" if u r in urgent i hope
u can go for Linux setup using upgrade option with
same kernel version which "might" restore some
critical missing files if it has been deleted by
someone.It will not distort ur previous settings.
Best of luck.
