Ouch Virus!

Postby bwall » 18. September 2008 17:43

I had a windows XP pro box up and running xampp. I got a virus that infested the box and took down all my sites. Do to time issues I went and opened a hostgator account. 2 years later now and time more free, i need to try to clean up the box and get my server back up.

I ran a antivirus and found these issues.

Begin scan in 'C:\'
C:\pagefile.sys
[WARNING] The file could not be opened!
C:\apachefriends\xampp\phpMyAdmin\network.exe
[DETECTION] Contains a signature of the (dangerous) backdoor program BDS/ServU-based.798720 Backdoor server programs
[INFO] The file was deleted!
C:\apachefriends\xampp\phpMyAdmin\tsk.exe
[0] Archive type: RAR SFX (self extracting)
--> TskMrg.exe

[0] Archive type: RAR SFX (self extracting)
--> virus_scanner_-vlnrk2.exe

I'm thinking that the above listed files are important to apachefriends xampp. I'm rerunning the antivirus software to see if they still exist presently. If they do what can be done to save the apachefriends xampp installation? Is there an easy way around the listed files or is this gonna be an reinstall....

Any thoughts on getting it back up? Or help on how i could piece the program back together w/o a full install.

Thanks

.
These (three) files are not part of the XAMPP package. So it's safe to delete them.

In Case of an Virus-Infection you should ALWAYS reinstall your Machine. Backup your XAMPP-Data (and just the data, NOT the executables!) and reinstall everything.

Sorry to bump this up but what are the chances that the virus could infect the XAMPP-Data?

Approx. the same chance to infect a bottle of budweiser beer.
