Has anybody come accross spyware/malware called XNET666?
Posted on 2005-05-12
I am having a problem with the DNS server on my network (single server running 2003 standard). The DNS server appears to be running perfectly but when I try to access the console I get an error syaing that I cannot connect.
To cut a long story short I have raised a Microsoft support call on this issue and they asked me to send them a netmon trace. They came back to me and said the netmon trace contained a reference to a website called XNET666 and they believe there is some spyware or possibly a Denial of Service application being run from our server.
Now, i have run an adaware scan, a microsoft anti spyware scan, a Macafee Virus Scan 8 full system scan, a full registry and file search and can't find any reference to XNET666. I have also had a look on the internet and the few websites that mention it are all in German.
So, here are my questions....
1. Does anybody know anything about XNET666, what it does and how you get rid of it?
2. Can anyone recommend any anti spyware/malware programs (either free or commercial) which may be more effective than the 2 which I have tried.
Hope you can help
