Download.Ject spreads by cracking into websites and uploading itself.
Your website is being cracked into and Download.Ject uploaded onto your
website, targeting your visitors.
The solution is to make your website less vulnerable.
The way to do this in this case is to ask the server admin to install the
latest Windows patches on the server, install the latest MDAC patches on
the server and install the latest IIS patches on the server.
Or better, move to a host that is less incompetant. This vulnerability has
been in the wild for over 6 months -- if your server is vulnerable, it
points to serious negligence from the admin!
