yep. my server was infected with some type of virus. i have yet to find out how it got in or how it trashed my system and all html/php files.

i lost all files with such extensions and were replaced with that message.

it wasn't pretty. i'm wondering if it was from an email sent to the system containing a virus. could a virus within an email infect a system even with norton/clamav and assp blocking?

anyone have any suggestions on how to prevent this from happening again? i

Polarunion, you're running phpBB on the server, right? A couple of days ago, a worm started to spread among phpBB boards. Unless you've upgraded to 2.0.11 of the phpBB board, you will be infected. The worm uses Google to find other phpBB boards and then infects them to spread further.

There's a lot of users in the phpBB forum explaining how to solve the problem. I upgraded to 2.0.11 before the worm spread, so I wasn't affected.
