Subject [users@httpd] New exploit in Apache and FC3?
Date Mon, 27 Jun 2005 02:17:34 GMT
Ever since we found and stopped a phishing site that had been planted
on our server to run as the default site under Apache, we have been under
constant attack.  Presumably, the perpretrators did not appreciate that
we made their millions of scam emails ineffective.

So, today I just happen to get a feeling that I should check for rootkits.
Sure enough, someone had a listener at port 3049 and lsof showed the owner
as being Apache.  More investigation shows the following in /tmp

-rwxrwxrwx  1 apache apache 34314 Jun 21 08:33 bash-
-rwxrwxrwx  1 apache apache 34346 May  3 17:30 httpp
-rw-r--r--  1 apache apache  1089 Jun 20 16:05 udp-flood.pl
-rw-r--r--  1 apache apache  1089 Jun 20 16:05 udp-flood.pl.1

And the following in the Apache error_log:

Syntax error on line 1194 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:

It all appears to reveal that the perps were able to run some kind of 
upload program, although I am not familiar with the output.  And, they are
able to get Apache to execute the upload as if it were CGI.

Oh yeah, and when the perl script, upd-flood.pl fires off, you might as
well just power-down the box!
