    Hi cxartizt7,

    What VPS Plans do you use? have you checked your log files?

    -Search modified or removed files.
    Virtuozzo for Linux
    # /usr/share/vzpkgtools/vzrpm/bin/rpm --root=/vz/root/101 --veid 101 -Va | egrep '^..5|missing'
    -find / -user apache and add apache user to your cron.deny (malicious scripts Usually owned by the apache user.)
    -Remove any rootkits + malicious script
    -Restore your backup

      I am using the Win 2003 Developer VPS plan.
      I had reinitialized my container, & changed my password. So is there a need to remove rootkis + those things?

            Use same steps as you clean your computer. It does not have much of difference

              In response to suwunk's comment that "You can remove rootkits + malicious script by an AV of your choice": Is that true in all cases / with all systems?

                Rootkits can lie hidden on computers and remain undetected by anti-virus software. Although new rootkits can be prevented from infecting the system, if you had any rootkits before you installed your anti-virus, they may never be revealed. sometimes you need specific anti rootkits to remove it. Thats why i ask cxartizt7 to contact CS for looking the problem and getting some assistance.
