what is java.assist

  1. Hello.

    so basically, my friend called me and told me that his server got "hacked".
    I wasn't sure how but he told me that those "hackers" could only send console commands in a specific server.
    They were advertising their discord server with the "/say" command.
    so I joined their discord server, someone there told me that all of the plugins have been infected with a "virus".
    he also told me that the infected plugin should have 2 things
    1- a package named java.assist
    2- a class that calls MainL10

    I checked all the plugins in the plugins folder and all of them have the same package and classes.
    the reason this is happening because my friend downloaded a plugin from an untrusted website.

    I really want to know how this works, how could they infect plugins, how could they control the console.

    Those resouces are indeed all infected, and imo that's what they get for downloading them from an untrusted website.
    However, you'll have to re-download all of them
