Rogue Backups Downloaded to Scripts Folder
After all the MMSM and 22510 upgrade issues from Nov-Jan, I finally decided to upgrade to the current version on 4 PC's on my network that had not been upgraded. After the upgrade, two of them ended up with scripts (in the Acronis scripts folder) from some of the other PC's script folders. The computer "Bugatti" ended up with a NAS backup script and a Cloud backup script from the computer "Tesla", showing up under "This Computer". These Tesla scripts would run on Bugatti, and would indeed backup Tesla files remotely using the same .tibx file on both the NAS and Cloud (at a different time that the original target computers scripts). I had this exact problem back in Oct-Jan. The solution is simple. Turn off Active Protection. Shut down Acronis. Just go into the scripts folder, open the .tis files one-by-one, and find a computer name in the script that matches the name of the offending backup script name. Delete those scripts and voila!! Problem solved.
What bothers me about this is how this can happen at all. Another computers backup scripts should NEVER be downloaded into a different computer and that computer be able to run them. Seems like a HUGE security flaw and leak. Anyways, all the computers are upgraded and that particular issue is resolved but I wanted the community to know that the Acronis "servers" are still running code that changes our backups.
