Problem with NetSky on ISA Firewall server
Posted on 2004-08-05
We have a Windows 2000 Sp4 server running ISA Server 2000 Sp2. Over the last few days hundreds of instances of the NetSky virus have been quarantined by Symantec Antivirus Corp Ed v9 on this server and the source is given as the 'Mail Sub-System'.
I have also noticed that a message box from the Symantec AV program keeps popping up on the ISA Server telling me that it's scanning the outbound email, leading me to believe that something sinister is hiding on the ISA Server and using it as a host the send viruses out on.
I have scanned the server and used the NetSky removal tool from Symantec but no instances of it are ever found.
Our system is configured so that only our exchange server can send outgoing smtp and we restrict outbound access to simple http / https / dns and ftp downloads for everything else.
It's confusing me because I can't detect the virus in a scan but it's still quarantining them.
