ASP Web Shell Detection (China Chopper)
High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9489
SynopsisPVS detected suspicious Command and Control (CnC) activity.
DescriptionPVS detected suspicious activity that indicates a remote client interacting and issuing commands on the server via a remote web shell. Once uploaded, an attacker can use other techniques to escalate privileges and issue commands remotely. The remote commands issued have the same privilege and functionality available to the web server and may include the ability to add or delete files, run shell commands, and execute additional exploitation methods.
SolutionSearch for ASP scripts containing the 'eval()' function and conduct a forensic examination to determine how the vulnerable ASP payload was installed on the server. Also, check for any additional unauthorized changes.
