Trojan horse xampp win32-1.4.16-installer-exe !!Help!!

Postby Edmouse » 06. May 2008 06:18

Installed xampp win32-1.4.16-installer-exe and began to build zencart store. My security was not working, after a new security install it found the following:
xampp/php/php4/phpcli is corupt, trojan horse psw.Legendmir
I have wipped my system and my store, scanned computer twice, all signs of trojan gone that i can see.
Try to reinstall xampp win32-1.4.16-installer-exe, security blocks due to trojan.
Try to download win32-1.4.16-exe file appears clean, then try to down load 1.4.16-upgrade-installer-exe, security blocks due to trojan.
Have posted threads ... post552614 ... hp?id=2220
with little responce.
Can anyone please Help me with my delma?
I want to build this zencart store but no longer know what to do for my local host, as I do not trust the xampp win32-1.4.16 -installer-exe that we are guided to use for compatabilty reasons.

You do not need to use the 'installer' ... just download the compressed version and unpack it to c:\xampp. I suspect that you are getting a 'false positive' from your scan. Since you will not be using PHP4 for Zencart you can always delete it if you are concerned.
