I studied information science and did computers from the old Commodore VC-20 onwards.

I started during study as pc-admin for DOS, Windows, WfW and all related software and hardware stuff.

Later I switched over to servers, starting with linux-samba and NT 3.5/4.0.

My first job made me a Solaris admin in a huge company with over 500 solaris servers. There I got every day a new interesting problem that I have never encountered before.

My next job brought me into project management and later back to system administration - mainly Linux. It was frustrating to manage a project when you knew that doing the admin`s job yourselv would have the current step finished in less than 30 minutes...

You should add that note to your answer. I am not sure wether tethering will do work as expected in this constellaton, but it might work.

@BruceEdiger and to add to that - I never found a linux antivirus product capable of scanning/protecting boot sectors.

Try to kill the parent process first. Or: Try the stop-signal instead of the kill-signal.

@0xC0000022L I did not read that third point. Right. But I remember having a similar issue with selinux enabled. I updated my answer accordingly.

comment delay in IP route deletion
Perhaps you can blackhole the route first? I think that delay in deletion might be normal, since the kernel needs to do a couple of things to tear it down.
