important security announcement for OVH users on Mar-01-09
OVH has been discovered installing root level backdoor access on servers (Windows admin-level included), and using the access to install monitoring software, without the client's permission or knowledge, which has not been verified as safe. As a result, Waffles is weighing a potential ban of OVH IPs from the site and tracker, but have not come to a final decision yet. Instructions for removal of the software and backdoor access can be found at http://pastebin.ca/1350404. These instructions may not result in complete removal, as they've been authored by a third party, and we have not had the chance to compare a stock OS install against a backdoor'd OVH installed.
so the big brother is watching, through a keyhole this time, will check out ovh forum later.
any thoughts from here ?
