If you are running an Apache server, might be a good idea to check your binaries.

For now, the question of how the machines are compromised in the first place remains unanswered.


For a minute I was afraid the binaries on the Apache site itself were compromised. Not that I use them, I always build from source (aren't FreeBSD's ports wonderful :) ).

Well, the title got your attention, eh?

Still, I sometimes wonder if someone got into the libraries and plugged in some stuff and then leveraged it later. Glad I no longer have to manage one of those monsters.

I broke into a few source forge projects years back. You'd be surprised.

Hey, Spec! Long time no poop.

The binaries, it seems are being modified by a Linux worm that is moving around and silently replacing certain binaries and creating backdoors. CDork is blamed.
