Even if they are only around for ten years, it still works out to be a good price.

The problem with the word "lifetime" is that it more likely applies to them than you.

I've got a client that has a website that's still hosted on a 2k3 server. The developer was one guy who has moved on long long ago, however they still use this site and it's insecure as fuck. Recently they've been having issues where this site goes down much more frequently than usual. I had originally created a script that ran an iisreset daily and another script that reset the sql db connection daily as well, that worked for a couple year but not anymore. Now I'm seeing error messages about pool connections exceeded and the IP address in the error log often traces back to Russia or China. No one legitimately using this site should be in those countries. So I think this server is probably been infected with some sort of malware but nothing that I readily have access to will scan a 2k3 server. I actually found an old version of Microsoft's MSRT from mid 2015 that's supposed to be the last version that supported 2k3 and I ran a full scan with that and it found nothing. We moved this server behind a Meraki router and used it's Layer 7 country block feature to block almost all countries. And it was the Meraki that tipped us off that some shady shit was going on, it blocked the download of some malicious files from China and Ireland.





Anyone know anything that works good and still works on 2k3 servers? I'd like to see what if any infection this thing already has and if it's trying to reach out to China. Upgrading to a supported OS really isn't a possible solution, this damn site was supposed to be retired years ago, the developer left long long ago and my job is to keep it operational, but I'm not a developer so I can only do so much.

I found Clamwin and also learned there's a legacy version of Malwarebytes that still runs on XP and Vista. I was able to install it on 2k3. I may just go with that, and actually pay for Malwarebytes for once

Anyone have any experience with Buffalo network switches?

Thinking of pickup up

I know Beelzebub mentioned their NAS devices were crap in the NAS thread, but not sure if this applies to switches as well.
