Bandwidth Theft by a gaming website

Discussion in 'Security' started by colin008, Jan 19, 2014.

    I need a little help to stop a gaming website using my bandwidth.

    I was first alerted by the super high bandwidth usage on my server.

    I logged in to SSH and used #top to view what was going on. And an unknown command was running as root.
    The command that was running was ./s xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 50229
    (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of the gaming website)

    I killed the process but,.. any help would be appreciated.

    you need to change your password and check your server as it seems to be compromised
