cxs itself hacked?

Post by Michael_Inet-Design »

Hi,

I have three servers with cxs installed. None are showing auto update emails for cxs or csf, and all three reported this, this morning:

Code: Select all

lfd on {srvername}: System Integrity checking detected a modified system file
 From: root@{srvername}
 To: root@{srvername}
 
Time:     Sun Nov  8 04:00:11 2015 -0600

The following list of files have FAILED the md5sum comparison test. This means that the file has been changed in some way. This could be a result of an OS update or application upgrade. If the change is unexpected it should be investigated:

/usr/sbin/cxs: FAILED

All three show new dates on cxs.pl:

Code: Select all

# ll /usr/sbin/cxs
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 15 Oct  3 10:24 /usr/sbin/cxs -> /etc/cxs/cxs.pl
# ll /etc/cxs/cxs.pl
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 618078 Nov  8 04:09 /etc/cxs/cxs.pl

# ll /usr/sbin/cxs
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Oct  2 06:05 /usr/sbin/cxs -> /etc/cxs/cxs.pl
# ll /etc/cxs/cxs.pl
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 618078 Nov  8 04:27 /etc/cxs/cxs.pl

# ll /usr/sbin/cxs
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 15 Oct  9 11:08 /usr/sbin/cxs -> /etc/cxs/cxs.pl
# ll /etc/cxs/cxs.pl
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 618078 Nov  8 03:59 /etc/cxs/cxs.pl

http://download.configserver.com/cxs/changelog.txt

Says the latest version is 6.00, but gives no date when that was released.

Was there an update to cxs, or have all three servers been hacked? If I've been hacked what's my next step?

Thanks,
Michael

Okay, thanks, at least I know now where to look in the future.

But . . .

Why is there no update email?

Best,
Michael

Edit:
PS: How/Where do I subscribe to only get release notices for cxs?
