comment Attack scenarios of the new Bash vulnerability
Ah, ok, I see my mixup. I was thinking example.com/some-cgi-script was a malicious script and didn't know how an attacker could get it on a victim's server, but actually it doesn't matter what CGI script is called. Does it matter if the CGI script is actually there?

Thanks - so how does the attacker get the cgi script onto the victim's web server - I think that's what I'm not understanding.

I get a 301 server error. I probably don't understand the above code, but does example.com/some-cgi-script point to a code on the victim's server or on the attacker's server (and contains malicious code) ?

comment Windows “Send to compressed file” creates an image?
No. We very probably did deal with it properly. We simply don't know if it is a virus, hence me asking here if it is a known behaviour of a virus. Why take the car in for a new engine if it is just the oil? I would also have thought here was a great place to ask if that behaviour is known virus behaviour. I think we're done here.

comment Windows “Send to compressed file” creates an image?
Not really, it's like saying "the car doesn't work anymore" but I can't tell if it is malicious or something I've done to it. So I think the question seems legitimate. Nuking from space should not be a first resort.

@AviD Ok, any ideas what it could be? I can't think why any legit program would do that.

I didn't nuke it from space, no! Just used avast to remove the virus, but yes that might be a solution!
