I’ve got a worm.
So, I’ve got a worm.
I’m not sure where I picked it up…and I’m not suggesting it has anything to do with BP. But, because a lot of you run BP & MU communities, I’m hoping you might be able to help, and certainly be on the lookout for this in your communities.
I started getting code inserted into the functions.php files of my themes. I noticed it first on my main site, because it went white-screen on me.
At first, I thought that it was a parent-child theme issue, because some of the code from my child theme functions.php was duplicated up to the parent theme, then throughout every theme in my install. (300+)
Digging deeper, I found the evil code. I see it from time to time in various functions.php files in my install. So far, I can’t get rid of it.
I googled snips of the code and found a forum thread where someone else had the exact same virus attack their community. The recommendation there was “shut the site down”. Obviously, that’s not what i want to hear.
Here is the link to that discussion.
And, here is the evil code itself.
Anyone had any experience with this?
