FTP hack on .NET a problem?
« on: August 23, 2012, 12:20:44 PM »
I am posting this here because have many Cold Fusion clients,  but just one .NET site, and that site was somehow infected with something called BTVt.exe.

I am trying to learn about it now, but CT Support offered to have their "development team investigate the site's code to prevent the problem in the future."

Without posting more detail than you wish, can anyone advise if .NET is especially prone to malicious code like this?  Is this something that needs to be blocked at the application level, and not the server firewalls, etc?  It just seems strange that it could be an application problem.

Shoot me the domain in a private message and i'll take a look. i need to get the exe and figure out what it is.

but in respects to vulnerabilities, .net is actually more secure than (at the risk of starting an A is better than B argument.) php or coldfusion, especially on shared plans.

so just shoot me the domain in a pm and i'll take a look and see whats going on.
