Is there any way to prevent to execute some unwanted malware in Apache2.

One of our clients Wordpress website is hacked and there was a files like /wp-content/uploads/2020/05/U27I0x

Those files seems executable. I showed file content and found below text in a binary.

Info: This file is packed with  executable packer t $
$Id:  Copyright (C) 1996-2018 . All Rights Reserved.

I want to know that is it possible to setup Apache2 to prevent execution of this type of files. Is it possible?

What sort of files were these? .exe? If so then it won't really matter. You would need to set permissions on the Linux side of things (assuming a Linux webserver).

Linux Permissions are as below, add the numbers up. They then run in the order of user/group/everyone.

3 = Read 2 = Write 1 = Execute

So 777 has the permissions

Read/Write/Execute - User

Read/Write/Execute - Group

Read/Write/Execute - Everyone

  • I think it is not exe. I found that it might malware named "ranbyus". It is also known as: Trojan.Win32.Inject.kma (Kaspersky), Trojan-FFJZ!70ED202105FE (McAfee), But I don't know what type of executable file is. Also client programs set permission then I can not manage file permissions. I want know that if it is possible then I explicitly deny to execute this type of files with Apache configuration on http server level. May 27, 2020 at 14:38
