XAMPP 1.4.3 - Virus found ?

Postby mi_techs » 18. June 2004 07:54

HI,
Just download XAMPP for Windows 1.4.3 (installer version) from Minneapolis, MN mirror site. When I install, my mcafee anti virus found a le name kill.exe (under c:\chefriends\xampp\apache\bin) detected as a virus (ProcKill-AN).
Is it a virus?

Next question, for XAMPP linux, which user should run perl script more secure, nobody, or other user (running script via SuExec)?

Last question, how to sign your own ssl certificate (in either Windows or Linux)?

Thanks a bunch.

No. If you do not trust my me, you can delete kill.exe. It is used by apache_stop.bat to stop the apache server gracefully.
which user should run perl script more secure, nobody, or other user (running script via SuExec)?
Use suexec as described in http://www.perldoc.com/perl5.8.4/lib/CGI.html#-private_tempfiles.
how to sign your own ssl certificate
Use the ca utility which is part of the openssl tool suite. http://www.openssl.org/docs/apps/ca.html#CA_OPTIONS Look for self sign and selfsign.

Daxim, thanks much. I did delete and apache wouldn't stop gracefully.
