I have discovered 'accidentally' while searching in my command history, that some one has issued these :
passwd w cat /proc/cpuinfo free -m uptime w perl v.py python v.py chmod +x * ./a 94.10
and these :
./a 52.30 rm -rf scan.log sparte.txt ./a 208.43 22 ./a 208.43 rm -rf md chmod +x * rm -rf scan.log sparte.txt ./a 31.79 22 rm -rf scan.log ./a 163.172 22 rm -rf scan.log ./a 212.1 ./a 212.1 22 rm -rf scan.log rm -rf scan.log sparte.txt ./a 212.219 22 w chmod +x * rm -rf scan.log sparte.txt ./a 185.61 22 w chmod +x * cat sparte.txt rm -rf scan.log sparte.txt ./a 81.102 22 ./a 212.1 22 cat /proc/cpuinfo free -m rm -rf scan.log sparte.txt chmod +x * ./a 31.220 22 rm -rf scan.log sparte.txt ./a 78.47 22 rm -rf scan.log sparte.txt
The apparently a noob intruder(hacker) who didn't clear the logs has taken advantage of a weak password to ssh into my server as he has tried with root :
Apr 1 06:35:39 ns346721 sshd: Failed password for root from 126.96.36.199 port 19029 ssh2
But succeed here
Apr 3 21:36:54 ns346721 sshd: Accepted password for [USERNAME] from 188.8.131.52 port 52054 ssh2
In the targeted user's home folder, the intruder has uploaded/generated some files :
/home/[USERNAME]/f ├── /home/[USERNAME]/f/a ├── /home/[USERNAME]/f/brute ├── /home/[USERNAME]/f/hu ├── /home/[USERNAME]/f/mass ├── /home/[USERNAME]/f/passfile ├── /home/[USERNAME]/f/scan.log └── /home/[USERNAME]/f/vuln
that I guess some of them was the output of a python file in /home/[USERNAME]/v.py which after my search has the content of this https://github.com/funtimes-ninja/malware/blob/master/1a5c4fdec1e867bb27c633751e6f1184a6597bef82dc94512fbb3dbe398ed177
and the 'a' file :
#!/bin/bash ./brute 800 -b $1 passfile $2 "uname -a"
Unfortunately nothing readable can be displayed on the file 'brute' as it has a binary content.
When discovered the issue, one process with [USERNAME] was still running; so I just finished it.
What I have done :
- Changed the password for the targeted user [USERNAME]
- Disabled ssh for all users except root (I know it shouldn't be either).
- Killed all processes under the user [USERNAME]
Now my main concern is to know what this intruder has made so far on the server.
Is there a well established procedure to check and clean malicious files and processes ? -
