Default kubotabooks.com may be bad?

Normally I access the kubotabooks.com site from work and print up the free manuals. I have always been a little cautious of this site because it requires a user to download and open a file from an unknown source.

Today I visited the site from home and instantly got a security message from norton that it was an unsafe site

CLicked this link then this one that explains why and was not all to surprised to find out trojans were detected.

If you down load manuals or any thing on line always scan the file with your anti virus before opening.

One never knows were evil lurks!


This is a summary of the trojan listed on norton that was detected:


Name: PHP.RSTBackdoor
Type: Trojan Horse

This threat requires the file r57shell.php to run. This file may already be present or may be manually copied to the compromised computer by the attacker.

When PHP.RSTBackdoor is executed, it performs the following actions:

Creates the following files:


/tmp/bdpl
/tmp/back
/tmp/bd
/tmp/bd.c
/tmp/dp
/tmp/dpc
/tmp/dpc.c


Opens a back door via HTTP access. It allows the remote attacker to perform any of the following actions:


Execute shell commands on /bin/bash
Change file permissions
Delete files and directories
Upload files
Edit files
Find files
Show system information
Dump SQL database

Scott,

Thanks for the heads up. I think I found similar warnings when I went there some time ago, but sometimes with my Internet provider you don't know when you might end up in the middle of the CIA database without warning.

Don't download any file from Kubotabooks that isn't a PDF file. There are two FLV files there now which contain spyware. I wonder who owns the site? I have tried uploading manuals to it and it won't accept them and I've tried contacting the site to no avail!

eserv, thank you for the added threat information - very scary!


mskrekla, great research! You have some pretty good info in there. I bet emailing those folks would probably end up with no respnse and spam from hell.
