my outbound website is being blocked

Recommended Posts

I am all of a sudden getting a pop up error on my 2019 server where I have Mailwarebytes premium running 

Error is outbound website blocked due to trojan the file its blocking is my php-cgi.exe 

Php executes on that site to gather some outside data

I now have a partially broken site, I have made sure Mailwarebytes is up to date, rebooted the server still getting the popup I have tested by turning off mailwarebytes and turning it back on and the data then does indeed update on that site

I exported and attached the detection

First some info for you.

Ok was not aware of that been running on my workstations for a couple years and just thru it on that server

Yes I knew in the past there was a issue with that domain and I have been monitoring it for a month now I have not seen any new issues Essett has been run on it many times along with others 

I have found multiple file,s in the past that was compromised and have since removed them I also have a script running there to monitor for any new files or folders being added

not sure if the server version is any different, but I will put the trail on and upgrade it for that server I will also let Eset run overnight

I opened a ticket with Mailwarebytes a while ago when I stuck this on this server to be able to get a detailed log that could be read, and was told there was only the json files which opening one file at a time was unacceptable. I was trying to obtain this info for the cyber division of the FBI, so yes I knew it was a issue, Just a note there are 100's of sites that have been attacked by what is believed to be N Korea. I did write a php script that I could scrub the data needed and add to a spread sheet. If this server is still compromised it is definitly burried. there are 4 domains on that server

Thank you

I am going to be on the cautious side and run multiple vendor virus softwares on the server first 

I have been using only eset online till now 

I see there is no trail mailwarebytes for server, so I guess I will have to wait to see what its cost is, I am retired and dont run these sites for profit.

You may want to consider a site like this one for Website security.


I'm not endorsing nor is the Malwarebytes company endorsing this company, but companies like this help people to clean up and protect websites. Websites are attacked by all kinds of tricks and methods that are not necessarily malware.

Thank you and good luck
