  • @khue By FTP root you mean on a PHP web server? – Sravan Aug 30 '16 at 10:00
  • @Sravan Yes it's a (Linux) webserver. – Khue Aug 30 '16 at 10:01
  • @Khue So, Is the file accessible from internet via URL and it is executable? – Sravan Aug 30 '16 at 10:03
  • @Sravan I have checked and it has chmod 604. And yes as it is located at the root of the webserver, it is accessible via URL (something like http://<ip address>/~<my username>/<filename>.php ). – Khue Aug 30 '16 at 10:10
  • @Sravan P/s: it's a shared hosting. – Khue Aug 30 '16 at 10:11

This script tries to execute this code:

$i = array_merge($_REQUEST,$_COOKIE,$_SERVER);
$a = isset($i["cmmkmwal"]) ? $i["cmmkmwal"] : (isset($i["HTTP_CMMKMWAL"]) ? $i["HTTP_CMMKMWAL"] : die);

That is, run eval on some encoded parameter. If this file is publicly accessible and processed by your webserver as PHP, this script will execute any code on the server.

Note that just because this file was on your FTP root it does not mean that it was interpreted as PHP. For the script to be run it needs to be accessible through a web server.

Edit: you stated in the comments that the file was accessible through an URL. This means that the attacker could run any code on the server, and the server (or at least your user account) was compromised.


I analyzed the code you provided. It was a kind of webshell used for remote Access. The code executed is as below.


Also, Just to add , Below error of undefined function probably gives hints that there may be other infected files as well on the server which contains this function definition.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function func_eet_ares() in C:\wamp\www\Secscripts\PHPRAT.php(100) : runtime-created function on line 1

Your server is compromised. For clean up check the link as mentioned in comments.
