We have 2 servers, one running Windows 2003 Enterprise that hosts a ColdFusion app, and one running Windows 2003 Standard that hosts our SQL database that is used by the CF app. Nothing else runs on them.
Does anyone have any suggestions for anti-virus products that we could use on these? I don't want one of those elaborate and expensive "suite" programs. I just need to protect the boxes.
I use Kaspersky on our individual machines, and I really don't care much for Norton anymore.
Does anyone know of any virus protection software that will work with Cpanel. Actually it probably doesn't have to work with Cpanel.. but here is my situation..
I have a lot of people uploading PDF’s and Word docs to our MySQL database, for other people to download. So far I have been downloading the files to my computer first and scanning them, then approving them. it would be nice if I can automate this check some how. I'm wondering of anyone out there does this sort of thing with the dedicated servers they run. Maybe just putting virus software on the server is good enough.
Do you recommend a software firewall when behind a hardware firewall?
All of our servers are behind Cisco ASA 5505 firewalls which we rent from Liquidweb. All are being managed correctly and setup to there optimal levels. With hardware firewalls firmly in place, do you still recommend a software firewall such as APF or IPTables (we're talking linux); in our opinion we see it as an extra administration overhead. If this is however untrue, we will change out thinking.
I am looking to backup client data to a second hard drive on the server. I was wondering if there is any way to protect this data from virus's or any other software attack that may compromise the server data.
There's supposed to be a virus on one of my server (called "cdpuvbhfzz"). Anyone has any idea on how to remove it? What software to install, what do do next. Also, is transferring an infected account on a different machine is also transferring a virus?
In the event of hosting a web program, who is responsible for the security, ie against hackers, virus and the like. Is it the hosting company or the program developer or the person running the website? Also, what is the best thing to do, with personal computers there's anti virus software, but what about the case of an entire website, do anti virus software companies have solutions for entire websites?
I wonder which virus scanner software is useful for Unix server(Centos 4.5). One of my client install SMF forum and when visitors access the forum,their virus scanner warn that site is affected by trojan. I used Clamav to scan entire home directory but seem nothing found.
Alright guys - my server the past two weeks is just freaking ridiculous. It's a Core2Quad Q9300 2.5ghz server with 8gb of ram. It should be fast as hell. I can't move 20 e-mails in my mail client without the server grinding to a complete halt and httpd and mysql going unresponsive. Right now I'm just trying to copy a damned screen shot of the task manager performance tab and it's taking about 3 minutes to paste it - even though the CPU utilization is averaging only 20% at the moment and memory is only 2.5gb.
I restarted WAMP and now it seems to be running smoother. My Outpost firewall, though, didn't show too many connections to the server that it was maxing out.
Here's my ping responses just now while I was typing this - I was watching the firewall connections and I was only having like 60 connections to httpd, 20 connections to mysql, 5-10 to my SmarterTools mail server, and then my remote desktop connection. My network utilization got up to a whole 5% - so it's not that I have too many connections or something. Here's the ping responses:

i have 2 blogs with ixwebhosting.com from 1 1/2 years. from 10 days my blogs are getting attack frequently. every time i am cleaning and reporting to them. they are also clean it. but it is attacking again. They said my system has virus. (but i have latest bitdifender 2010 total security,probably the best antivirus) i also have account with 3 more hosts with many sites. everything works fine.
i am asking them why only this account getting affected if i have virus in my system.i already moved one site to another host where it is working fine now. Except this problem they are very good. So i can't left them.
if any one has experience this kind of problems, please suggest me what to do?
I'm a web hosting reseller. I'm now running on a server, purchased from Hosterio (previously I used WebHostingBuzz). From last few months I'm facing massive virus attack on my server. There are 3-4 Joomla based websites hosted on the server. Most of them (including some non-joomla sites) are getting attacked by HTML frammer and similar viruses. In most of the cases, symptoms are, injection of hidden iframes either at the start or at the end of body tags.
I kindly request the experts here to suggest me the optimum solution. What security measures should I take immediately? What are the recommended file permission and settings that can be set as a WHM account owner? What should I recommend to my clients? Please suggest.
My server specs are:
Linux Server, WHM-Reseller Hosting Account, Apache Web Server Running on Dedicated IP.
PS: If you can suggest a tool to quickly manage file permissions (because FTP clients are taking lot of time to modify permissions of Joomla site, where number of files are more than 2000-3000) on my server, I'll be more grateful.
Last month I order 2 Xen VPSs from Xenvz.co.uk and use them for VPN proxy.
But a few days ago, xenvz stopped one vps and state "This is because it is spreading the Conficker virus.". I'm a little surprise because there's only 10+ users on this vps. Most of them use VPN for visting Youtube or P2P download or gaming. And Conficker virus can only run on Windows, but all my vps is running on Debian.
Maybe someone had download something that contain Conficker virus?
Anyway, I had to move a few users to another vps yesterday.
But xenvz stop my another vps today for the same reason!
I really do not know whether or not one of my user is spreading or other reason, but as I know, Conficker virus had affected thousands of hosts in the past. If someone download or being affect by conficker for any reason, provider then stop their host, I'm afraid thousands of sites would down.
i can't find what is causing this.. i've disabled comus and arrowtrader but they still run, i can't find anything else running in the background that is causing this..
what i'd really like to know is how to make a wrapper for perl to log all commands.. or some kind of exec logging for freebsd, i've looked for a way to also log all commands run by PHP too but i can never find something like that. i've scanned the server, found the r57/rst type backdoors, removed... nothing is listening on a port, i just can't seem to find it, i've enabled accounting and see that find runs, grep runs too.. but can't see what is causing it..
I've found a dedicated server at a great price and plan to stick with it, my first ( already have 2 vps accounts ). I don't have the money for a hardware firewall. However, I do have a chance to renew a Kerio WinRoute Firewall license from way back.
Does anyone think this would be better than the default windows 2003 firewall?
"What anti-virus do you use on your postfix email server powered by Plesk?".Is there an anti-virus program that can be installed on Plesk version 12.0.18 as an extension or component? I need it primarily for protection of incoming email from malware.I've seen in Add or Remove Components in the Mail hosting features that I have installed Kaspersky antivirus, but I didn't seen anywhere that it actually can be configured from within Plesk. It also, as far as I can see, doesn't do anything. what is Kaspersky antivirus used for in Plesk and how can I configure it?
