Dear all,

I find that my Windows 2000 SP4, with Terminal Service is hacked by someone. The hacking who did is installed QQ, and created two user account with $ sign at the end, i.e : abcd$

And there have some files in the Administrator Desktop, e.g. r_server.exe, windowsattack.exe ...etc.

The server I installed SQL2000 & Terminal Service, I have to granted the port 1433 & 3389 to open to public.

How can I fix this problem? I've try to run fresh installation of Windows 2000, but the server attack again within 24 hrs...

Please Help!

first of all, take the server off your network immediately - and isolate it.
next, close the open firewall ports to this server before you completely wipe and reinstall the machine.

this is assuming that you really don't care who hacked you or why...they probably were just network scanning and found you

if you wanted to do a forensic analysis, then you need to shutdown the server and call in an expert in the field, or notify law enforcement

Well, you probably want to be off the network, do a clean install, then install all updates, only then reconnect to the network.

Also, as suggested above, if it's a rootkit then may have to reformat before installing.

Final result.

The hacker is come from China. I have found what hacking tools is he using to hack my Server. And about the MS windows update, it have not included the patch for lsass... he used the tools thru. lsass to attack my Server, then make it buffer overflow and then open telnet port.

After telnet is opened, he create account and set it under administrators group. Then using RDP to connect in..., and place/delete file/install QQ... etc...
