Possible IFRAME.Exploit

by startd / April 24, 2008 11:38 AM PDT

Hey all

I am hoping to find some direction. I am running a Microsoft 2003 webserver IIS 6.0. All of a sudden on my website the site tries to connect to http://colehost.cn and then the virus detection kicks on and tells me it detects js/pyne trojan. It will try to access this site over and over so I figured I have an IFRAME Exploit. Normally the IFRAME is placed in the code of the page. I ran a search in the source code of the site and I have no IFRAMES.

Has anyone seen this before or have a solution. I have run an antivirus on the server and have had no results.

Could it be, you mean Trojan-Downloader.JS.Psyme ?
by Marianna Schmudlach / April 24, 2008 11:45 AM PDT

This Trojan will download a file indicated in the Trojan?s code to the victim machine. It uses a vulnerability in the ADODB.Stream ActiveX component to save the file to disk. The malicious code may be included in html pages. The Trojan is approximately 500 bytes in size.

Removal instructions

1. Disable the ADODB.Stream object in Internet Explorer (see here for further details).
2. Delete the original Trojan file (the location will depend on how the program originally penetrated the victim machine).

If it is JS/Psyme as Marianna asked..

I was the "recipient" of this trojan some years back, when visiting a website. It was necessary to delete Java's cache. I don't see it suggested in the above instructions, unless I over-looked it. Sad At the very least, it can't hurt to do it anyway.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
