Hi,

in my world view 'trash bin' ($HOME/.local/share/Trash/) already is
an odd folder, but I even don't have the bad programmed gvfs
installed. To fulfil hard dependencies against gvfs, I install empty
dummy packages to all of my Linux installs, actually gvfs should be an
optional dependency, since it's absolutely not needed.

What makes you think, that it could be "something such as a hack
attempt" and what is "something such"?

Did you already use an online virus scanner?

Did you delete the files and you just want to inform us, that no new
files are moved to the trash folder or did they disappear
automatically? Assuming they disappeared automatically, it's not that
seldom that environments automatically delete files in the trash folder
after a given time. I don't know how your desktop environment, probably
GNOME, handles this.

Ralf
