Hi

I have a ecommerce store on magento that recently got infected and is sending spam. It is hosted on virtual linux server.
It appears to be infected with a spam sending trojan or proxy.

Does anybody know if there exists any antivirus solutions or is there any other way to solve this problem ?

Anybodys help would be very much appreciated.

Best regards

Thierry

Hi,

I use AVG anti-virus and i find it excellent. In fact on a few occasions it stopped Trojan virus from coming in. I don’t think any firewall or anti-virus is 100% effective, so it’s best to try and be careful when you are online.

Please try and let me know.......

Thanks for your reply Davison.

Is you antivirus (AVG) installed on your server or on your local machine?
We haven’t found any online antivirus for Magento that we need to install on our server (Linux)

I would really appreciate your input
Thanks again

lock your firewall, filter ports, log everything and read logs then
use grep to find it.

Hello! I’m using this extension to help detect the security weaknesses. It detected certain breaches which I worked on, now the site is clean.

I have seen this link and looking good but could you tell me about this extension? How is this better than other antivirus software ?
