Post Infection: DayZ Servers Hit By Malicious Software



I don't know whether to growl or sigh so I guess I'll just groan, or maybe even grigh. Jim's new favourite playground and horrorshow, DayZ, was the victim of a security breach, carrying the risk that the game's servers could become a botnet. Thankfully the person responsible has been identified, a statement has been released and legal action is being pursued. The official advice is as follows:
‚?¶if you are a user who has downloaded the .exe called dayz_auto_updater.exe from the US Mirror‚?¶scan against viruses and read the description by ThreatExpert on where to locate this if your Virus detector does not pick it up.

Additionally, server hosts who supplied RDP details to the DayZ team are also compromised and 'need to thoroughly scan their server for the same type of processes and to change their servers RDP details and to NOT ever give the RDP details out to anyone *Including DayZ* from now on'. More below.
