ConfigServer eXploit Scanner (cxs)
ConfigServer eXploit Scanner (cxs) is a tool that performs active scanning of files as they are uploaded to the server. The active scanning of uploaded files can help prevent exploitation of an account by malware by deleting or moving suspicious files to quarantine before they become active. This includes recent exploits such as the Dark Mailer spamming script (multiple variants, including obfuscated code regardless of file name) and files uploaded with the Gumblar Virus. It can also prevent the uploading of PHP and perl shell scripts, commonly used to launch more malicious attacks and for sending spam.
ConfigServer eXploit Scanner also allows you to perform on-demand scanning of files, directories and user accounts for suspected exploits, viruses and suspicious resources (files, directories, symlinks, sockets). You can run scans of existing user data to see if exploits have been uploaded in the past or via methods not covered by the active scanning. It has been tuned for performance and scalability.
- Active scanning can be performed on all text files
- Exploit detection
- Web-based User Interface
