Hi, there:

I've been a fan of Abyss Web Server for years now and even I did setup LAMP server but I couldn't change my mind to switch because of easy interface and features. But recently I recognized my server have been instantly accessed and I did a port scan to see what is going on. It's turned out that the console port 9999 from Abyss Web Server opened and allowed brute force to attack my server also leading to another open port 9876 by (matches Rux.100 & matches SheepGoat.100). I also Google search and found others have said the same thing. Is there any way to fix this security vulnerability? Please, let me know. Thanks.


Here is the list when I did a scanned with Trojan Hunter:

Port 9999/TCP is open (matches ForcedEntry.100)
Port 9999/TCP is open (matches Infra.100)
Port 9999/TCP is open (matches Prayer.120)
Port 9999/TCP is open (matches Prayer.130)
Port 9876/TCP is open (matches Rux.100)
Port 9876/TCP is open (matches SheepGoat.100)
Port 9999/TCP is open (matches Skipper.100)
Port 9999/TCP is open (matches SpadeAce.100)
Port 9999/TCP is open (matches TakeOver.200)
Port 9999/TCP is open (matches STakeOver.300)

THANK

leechunsonnn,

Abyss Web Server uses by default port 9999 for its console. But you can change that very easily to any port number that suits you.

Now, your antivirus/malware software have done a quick scan of your computer and found that there is something responding on port 9999. It listed several potential malware that are known to open 9999. Is that enough to determine that the console or your computer is compromised? Of course no. Your malware scanner just found out that port 9999 is open and did nothing more other than scaring you.
