Hi Pereira, welcome to the KnownHost Forums. :)

These particular files are common false alarms. I don't know why it picks these files up as Trojans but I wouldn't worry about them. If you are a VPS customer, make sure you lock down your box, install some rootkit scanners and a virus scanner like clamav and you should be fine.

Theres a really good installation script for new system admin caled ELS (Easy Linux Security Script) which has been discuessed on another thread on this forum here - http://forums.knownhost.com/showthread.php?t=797 with it you can automate the installation of RKHunter and CHKROOTKIT, which are common rootkit scanners. While also offering other configuration changes which will help to secure your linux box.

I'd also suggest you visit http://www.webhostgear.com/314.html and run through each step there as it will help to secure your box from attacks.

I hope this helps and again welcome to KnowHost :)

Neil
