    How to prevent cgi backdoors?

    I have a simple question, but have yet to find the solution. People are using files named "whatever.cgi" which allow them to gain root access to pretty much any server. From what I understand they get the hash code and are able to use it to login to whm.

    Can someone offer suggestions to resolve this type of attack?

    I have suphp, suhosin, safe cgi, modsecurity, clamav, and none of those prevent anything. Even if I disable cgi in apache settings they can still run the script with only a few adjustments.

    Well honestly not that simple... I would of figured that if its CGI based then you can simply disable/uninstall CGI and problem solved... What kind adjustments are you talking...
