    So, we got this strange virus on one of our servers. It added a hidden iframe script to the bottom of every html page, only in the root directory of the server.
    The link was pointed to a music site that was hacked, sending to a counter.php script of some kind ( I couldn't get the code ). I figure that someone wanted to boost rankings so instead of buying rankings, or whatever they payed someone for BH SEO. I find this amusing, it's some kind of exploit maybe due to a poor password but. All the files had the exact same time stamp, which is why i think it was a bot. It reminded me of the really old Nimda virus. Anyone have any ideas?

    internet is full of such stuff, there aren't real viruses anymore like in the past where they are purely meant to do bad things.. now all viruses generate money one way or another :)

    Nimda virus was a killer, its sounds like you got hit with a russian hacker. Just be happy they didnt take your site down.
