I searched and could not find the answer to this question.

My server has been infiltrated by someone entering through the guest user account (I believe) and adding many users and using my server for nefarious purposes.

I have it mostly cleaned up and access blocked (I hope) but would like to make sure that I have everything removed and cleaned.

I was going to run rkill, but thought I would ask here before I ran it if it would work on Server 2003.

 

Thanks,

Josh

I don't think it would hurt to try it for yourself; sometimes that's what you have to do to figure something out; try by trial and error.

I have run this program several times in Windows Server, it ran fine, although sometimes it was a bit particular about when it would run. It is like the above post, trial and error. You could try using it, and if it fails, you could always look manually if you have experience with a tool such as ProcMon. A quick search on Google can do wonders. Goodluck.

Just a note to others reading this topic. Trial and error is a good way to find a solution to a problem however you should make every attempt to create a restore point or system back up before doing anything "unknown" Especially in a server environment where Data is at risk.

I probably should have mentioned that.  I guess I just think it common knowledge, though usually before most installs, Windows automatically creates a restore point; I've never seen an installation that doesn't automatically do that for you; I've had that come to my advantage a couple of times a couple months ago when I realized that microsoft NetMon is not compatible with VMware Workstation's Internet connectivity driver.  But I've never felt the need to break up my backup schedule just for an application install, though it is kind of pointless since restore points are created automatically for you.

I would never rely on automatic restore points for important data if you crash the hard drive the restore points go with it.
