    Didn't give me a whole lot to work with. So I am just gonna have to guess. I remeber a discussion about this earlier. Here is the link . Hope this helps a little bit. If not give us a bit more information. Like for starters what OS is it. I am assuming windows based on the reserved com name used.

    Com executables were the first kind of compiled code, at the beginning of DOS age, mainly to accomplish compatibility with the previous CP/M systems.
    Under DOS both exe and com executables may run, but what make them working is not the memory model, but the API they were compiled for.
    So if your C/C++ programs were compiled to target DOS they will run under DOS, otherwise to process them by Exe2Bin adds no value.

    I think the tagged reference just means someone has turned your FTP server into a WAREZ server. If so, do you run anonymous FTP? Do you allow uploads? If so and you have no policy to wipe things off of the server after a period of time, this was bound to happen sooner or later. Those folks put alot of strange characters into the folder names (space is very popular) to make it more difficult to access and delete; however, if you backslash '\' every special character (like space), you should be able to get rid of it.

    If you don't run anonymous FTP or don't allow uploads, then you have a more serious problem and need to start looking at ways they could have gotten access.

    Hope that starts you off in the right direction,
