    What is "sshd: unknown [priv]"

    I noticed when I ran ps aux a few hours ago, seeing this process:

    sshd: unknown [priv]

    it's since disappeared, but I'm worried. Is this an indication of a successful hacking?

    Check your log as mostly someone trying to launch brute-force... that one is mostly due to someone trying to login under an unknown user or a username which doesn't exists in your system... ...

    Just my thoughts... ...
