VIRUS found in Xmap 1.2.10

Postby franzb » Tue Feb 22, 2011 12:07 pm

I downloaded today "Xmap 1.2.10 for Joomla 1.5" from http://joomla.vargas.co.cr/en/downloads/cat_view/1-xmap.

My Anti Virus Programm (Avira AntiVirus) found a Virus in
com_xmap-1.2.10.zip/front/cache/theme.php (filesize:13.227 Byte)

It seems that virus tries to use server for sending emails.

Please check this! Thanks in advance.

Edit: Also Xmap 1.2.9 is infected, 1.2.8 and 1.2.7 seems to be ok.

Thanks again,

Hi there,

I have downloaded XMAP 1..2.10 on 2nd Jan. 2011 and in my com_xmap-1.2.10.zip file there is no front/cache/theme.php file existing.

It seems that the virus has been added afterwards.

Best regards

Michael

Can you please describe the malware so it can be identified more easily? What dates was it in the download package? How did this happen?
