  • Virus Check? 13798 Threats found?

    Can anyone browse by my forums and see if you get a virus report?
    It's only a few days old with just one message, so it seems strange when I got an email from one of my customers that Norton's Antivirus reported
    13798 threats.


    I use Avast and Malwarebytes on my computer at home and so far no reports of any problems.

    Suggestions?
    Thanks,
    Steve

    privmsg.php is not a vBulletin file and is not included in the default vBulletin package.

    If that file exists on your server then you need to find out where it came from, get rid of it then tighten up your server security.

      I use antivirus Nod32 and it has not shown me any threats at your forum.
      By the way, pages catch through <iframe> more often, I have looked a code of your page and anything similar have not found.
      So do not worry, your forum is pure, as tear of the baby.

        Yes, in Norton's opinion your site is badly infected.
        Did you play with some modifications earlier?


        vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

          No, so far the only thing added to the forums is two skins from
          VBSkinworks.

            Just checked also and did not find the file: privmsg.php anyplace
            in my ftp folders. As for the servers, I'm hosted through 1and1.com and
            know it's shared server space. Could someone else's domain on the same server cause an infection to my files?

            Thanks,
            Steve

              Nope. And I would go with another host, like startlogic.com. They're very good My forums are hosted with them
              That's it. If you REALLY can't say ANYTHING nice to me at all on this forum, then I am going to go insanely mad at you. I've had enough of the UNTOLD ABUSE you are all giving me and you should really be CONSIDERATE of other people.

                Thanks for the help everyone.

                I requested a new scan from Nortons websafe and now they report
                ZERO viruses!

                Thanks,

                  Actually it can if the server is infected through another vector. This has happened in the past with a phpBB Worm that used an exploit in an older version of PHP and the Gumblar virus recently.

                  Any shared server that isn't kept up to date with all patches to the OS and various server applications (email, FTP, HTTP, PHP, MySQL, etc...) can become a target.
