got a puzzle

Greetings all;

I ran synaptic-pkexec this morning and got some non-sensical errors.

Shut it down, and looked in /etc/apt, and found all my sources.lists had 
been replaced by something pointing at stevenpusser at
And all the changes were dated this morning.

Now, I have no clue who the hell steven pusser is, but there sure as hell 
isn't anything on this system, an i386 wheezy install, from 
that I know about.

And its all owned by root. So even after I've restored the .saved 
versions of everything, the .saved weren't exactly correct since the 
trinity entry was pointed at cz, which I was told last week was a 
deprecated address.

So among other things I need to restore is my deb line for the trinity 

Never having run kpackage-trinity, I thought I's see what it looked like, 
it was showing as installed but its not in any of the TDE menu's. And 
can't be found by me or root.

All of this mucking with my sources list was apparently done by 
synaptic-pkexec. Its all datestamped today at 5:40AM locale time, which 
is when I tried to run synaptic-pkexe.

And I can find no "arch" reference anyplace. It should be i386 for this 

Call me puzzled. Or worse.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
