Rustock C - Rootkits and affected operating systems RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I've joined the group looking for some information on whether or not SBS 2003 is threatened by the Rustock C rootkit trojan/virus.  I've done quite a bit of research on it, and so far assumption would lead me to think that SBS 2003 can get this virus, but I'm not sure as the only OS's that have been confirmed targetsand Windows XP and Vista 32-bit, if you haven't enabled the User Account Controls.  I am the only one who logs into the server as the admin and I don't do surfing or install anything other than MS approved software on the server itself, so I think it may be clean and it is only the desktops in the network that are being used in the BOTNET, but I'm looking to find out if I have to reinstall everything or if cleaning out the desktops is enough as it very reasonably could be.

    It seems like there aren't too many replies in this forum, but if you stumble past this and know anything about it, please let me know!
