    Zeus botnet CP found


    Hello,

    i found an Zeus botnet control panel PHP script on an account under my reseller hosting.

    I found there are a bots in its database and its gathering private data of compromited machines.

    I want to ask if there can be made any script which extract emails of compromited machines (from mysql) and send them an email that they should remove the bot and scan the computer.. Is there any such Zeus anti script?

    Or what one should do to fight this on more global scale?

    I don't know about an "anti-script" but one thing you should do is learn about known vulnerabilities in the technologies you use. PHP has been a prime target and it is essential to keep up to date with security releases and use best practises for data handling, configuration and administration. The bots are trying to exploit known security flaws and the best defence is to know them and plug them yourself.
