    Hi there,

    CXS just detected a file upload attempt to every account in the server. How is it possible for anyone to know every account?! I have several websites with the same footer but about half of them do not have anything relating to the others. Did they use some sort of IP to domain search service?

    Scanning web upload script file...

    ClamAV detected virus = [Win.Trojan.Hide-1]
    Is there anything I can do to prevent such attempts, seeing as the firewall did not detect it as a multiple attempt on different domains and so did no block him.

    Best regards,

    Are all of the file upload attempts against a specific application such as WordPress or Joomla? Are you using Mod_Security on this system?

    Thank you.
