kill.exe in apache bin

Postby aubergine2001 » 07. May 2004 15:07

My virus scanner has said I have an infected file called kill.exe in apache/bin directory, is this file needed or can I deleate it.
Thanks

Replace the existing kill.exe in Apache\bin with the kill.exe from the Windows NT4 Resource Kit. You can find it there:
http://www.dynawell.com/support/ResKit/winnt.asp
Search for: Task Killing Utility

Or inside the package "Windows NT 4.0 Resource Kit Support Tools"
http://www.microsoft.com/ntserver/nts/d ... efault.asp

You don't need this tool if you start Apache as service.

(It is not really a virus!)
