    Hi there,

    After moved several websites to ISPConfig, we see that some websites, gets randomfilename.php uploaded in the root directory, like /var/www/clients/clientX/webX/web

    The file is 100 % an exploit, in order to see directories, eval_base64 etc.

    How to prevent this?

    Your best chance would be to replace this very old Joomla version with a more recent one without the security hole the attacker uses.

    Our 1.5.x are all on latest version 1.5.26, and cannot be upgraded to 2.5 or later.
    Possible chmod on the web folder, so that no one can create files there ?

    I think I found the issue - JCE BOT - The Joomla installations had outdated JCE versions, according to

    I recommend to install apache mod_security. It will block almost all attacks withits filters.
