    Since i run it on my dedi yesterday i can't log in to my remote desktop, i submit ticket to support, they rebooted my server and it didn't help. I tried to log in from other PC and still can't. Did mods ban spk for spreading virus? Virustotal shows 2/43 scan result

    Nope, I used it yesterday and it's all good. He has a service here for goodness sake, he wouldn't try to infect all of us only to risk his entire business and reputation.

    If you saw the thread before it was deleted SpK explained everything about it being a virus or trojan.

    You can even decompile the program and look at the whole code yourself, which he suggested you do if you're concerned.

    It's not a virus. He was probably banned for another reason, and will probably return soon. I guess it's just a temporary ban - but not sure.

    If it was a virus, Wiz or Blackhit would have DEFINITELY got onto it and posted a sticky warning others. The virus that appears on the virus scan is probably one that comes on all bots created in the language he used.

    I don't think he will risk his business here for a simple bot he made.

    Just like all keygens are considered a virus just because what they do.. when they are not a virus at all.

    It is not a virus, I got a problem with my server but that was caused by windows.

    I read that he got banned because he manipulated the youtube section of BHW forum.
    Oh the irony

    He did say that he "read" it somewhere, therefore he wasn't making it up himself.

    Issue with windows Vps???



    Dear Customer,
    This is a notice of an active security alert which could pose a threat
    to your server with operating system of Microsoft Windows.

    Please see the alert below:

    "Yesterday, during Microsoft's Patch Tuesday they announced a patch
    for a critical vulnerability in Windows Remote Desktop. If exploited,
    the vulnerability would allow anyone to remotely run commands on your
    server.

    This bug affects all versions of Windows (XP - 7/2008 R2)
    If you have a server or workstation running RDP please patch it now.
    There currently is no known exploit, but Microsoft believes there will
    be one in the next 30 days. However, it is very likely there will be
    something sooner.

    A temporary fix is to enable NLA (Network Layer Authentication). This
    would require the attacker to have valid login credentials, however if
    successfully exploited the remote commands would run as the SYSTEM
    user and not the user authenticated."

    The patch is available from Windows Update and there are manual
    patches linked below.
