    Server infected with scanssh, pscan2, ./sshf. Urgent Help Required


    HI Gurus,

    I am facing a security issue on my server. I can see many process like pscan2, scanssh and ./sshf processing on 'top'. The owner of these processes is non root account. Can anybody let me know what can be the extent of loss due to these suspicious scripts? How can I permanently remove these scripts from my server. Please note that I am using CentOS 5.5 (64bit). Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Sherazi

    So what account initiated these processes? If it is a legit user you have to kick his butt, if it is an unknown account you have to disconnect this server from net and reinstall from scratch.
