    Nope, I didn't stick that in there -- in fact that server was compromised.

    I'm in the process of rebuilding it as we speak.

    Not just for this thing, but also for the heartbleed issue that was found a bit ago as well (my SSL cert may have been compromised as well so I need to re-issue).

    Thanks for identifying that buddy. :-)

    I removed the script as well.

    Found back this thread accidentally. Wow : it's still active

    We've been infected on 2 servers there is 2-3 years by this **it.

    cPanel support proxy infected us.

    ...we've been told by cPanel a couple of times there was no sure ways to remove this malware.

    I would perform a complete reinstall even if there is a "removal" tool.

    I'm surprised nobody has patched the security hole that allowed this file to get there yet, after all this time! ...or it's patched and i don't know?

    I remember we were one of the firsts customers who notified this problem to cPanel.

    The day after, cPanel confirmed the security issue by email, to all their customers.

    Seems it has been rolling around for a very long time.

    In addition to not giving root passwords to vendors over the internet *doh*, and aside from SSH keys, different SSH ports, CSF+LFD, is there anything else that can reduce attack surface and reduce chances of being rooted again?
    Use CloudLinux

    ...and pray if you provide your ssh credentials to a third party

    I heard the Grsecurity Kernel is not vulnerable to this. products are vulnerables, since they protect against barely nothing and only provide very old binaries. We got infected while using them. You need to protect the kernel first.

    Best option to go is CloudLinux on cPanel IMHO. I did not tried BetterLinux, but i'm not sure it would be benefical for this kind of thing. Seems like it's working pretty much like 1h products.
