My HOST told me yesterday that they found
Quote:
For some reason (most likely due to security vulnerabilities in your website), files in your /tmp/ directory are being accessed and executed. These range from perl to BASH scripts, and are being used to DDoS attack other sites.


Since I moved to Linux (from Windows) a while back I have not had access to the system files. They are asking me to do some things in /etc and /temp.

When I log in with PUTTY, I get to the same level as when I come in via PLESK or even CUTE FTP.

Am I using the wrong account info? Administrator verses ??

Is there any place with a good tutorial? Especially one that is compatible with UBB? The ones that I'm finding don't help much.

Well, there are a few things you can do; you can check your access logs for the filenames which have been created in your temp directory...

all you can really do in the end however is look through every php file and directory on your server for files which shouldn't exist and make sure every php script on your server is up to date...

Step 1. Change your root password.
Step 2. Diagnose the problem and fix it.

Bare in mind your Host will tell you anything that will make there job easier wink

Administrator = Windows
Root = Linux

If a root level user was indeed hacked it'd be more advisable in a lot of situations to have a reinstall done on the server as you'll find a lot of hidden files and bots for as long as you'll have the server; it's a real pain in the butt lol
