FS 22 September

I had quite a busy day, not much time to code for Frihost.

An account on server 2 got infected by a worm, probably some kind of security hole in a not yet update software. Unfortunately a phisher used it to upload some of his files. So please people, patch your scripts and fix security holes. If you don't want to patch something, like a test install, then remove it! If something like this happens, then your hosting account gets removed and you most likely won't get it back since we can't take a risk for it to happen again. It might cause quite some problems to us.

Anyway, back to the forums. 2 good movies I enjoyed and recommend: DIE HARD - 4 and Bourne Ultimatum.

And what about a few good but scary nuclear explosions?

No m-productions, it's just one account that got infected. It's most of the time a security hole in a website, like when you can include an outside file in a php script and execute it (which gives you the same rights as the user). A worm simply exploits those vulnerabilities and the exploit has a script to exploit other accounts (which didn't work out on our server, though).

There are websites where security exploits are posted. They exist for most previous versions of popular software (like php before 2.0.x, especially the 12 and below are very vulnerable) The exploit in question came from wilw0rm . com , I think. A popular place for script kiddies. Wink

AH I see, I script my own items, and dont use other pre-made projects (ohther than phpBB) but, this is something to keep in mind... Learn something new every day!
