HTTP ERROR 404 Problem accessing /public/error.jsp. Reason: /public/error.jsp

I’ve just restored a compromised customer
Do a quick search under the usual jetty folders:

find /opt/zimbra/jetty/ -type f -name *jsp -mtime -30

If you find files like:
you’ve been hacked.
Unlike the previous “zmcat” and “dblaunchs” that actually exploit the vuln and load some sh*t this looks like a bad childish attack. It seems that they delete some files under jetty dir, don’t know why. 
The attack vector is the same, but, there are no strange processes, there is no persistence.

To clean:
1) Get the package of your version. In our case was an unpatched 8.6
2) Extract the package, find the store rpm or deb. In our case was zcs-NETWORK-8.6.0_GA_1153.UBUNTU14_64.20141215151218/packages/zimbra-store_8.6.0.GA.1153.UBUNTU14.64_amd64.deb 
3) Get into the rpm or the package (midnight commander allows browsing deb & rpm) and navigate to the correspondent jetty/webapps/zimbra/public folder
4) Replace the old public folder with the public folder from the package
5) Patch immediately. You modified some files that will be patched so, if you installed some patch before, use ./ –force, to avoid zimbra version control
