The verdict

Posted: April 18, 2005 in Uncategorized

Seems I contracted Linux.RST.B on my web server. No info yet on where it came from.

On the plus side, it seems that it was a fairly innocuous infection, assuming my exposure was short-lived. On the downside, I’m going to have to rebuild my server, since it infects all the binaries. Time to get some decent Linux AV. Bastards.

Do the world a favor: castrate a virus writer.

edit: Apparent time of infection: Apr. 13th, 17:20:14. Damn, 5 days. Not as good as I’d hoped.

edit 2: And the culprit is….. phpBB2. Damn, running that thing is like wearing a target.

    there has got to be a different solution out there for you that isn’t the target phpBB2 is.
