    Hi,

    I just run a scan using Wordfence on a client site and it found eval(base64_decode('.....
    in the advanced-post-types-order/include/licence.php file.

    Since this is the kind of code used by hackers, why is this used in this file and is this your code?

    Thanks

    Philippe

    Hi Philippe,
    There's nothing to worry about, is just a way to protect our code. In fact you can echo the base64_decode(..) to see the exact code. This will be removed in the next release (V3.0 major update, which also allow sorting for custom queries including multiple post types, taxonomies at once etc)

    Thank you,
    Dan

    Hi,

    The Base 64 encoding is used for many thing, the most notable of which being emails...

    Any hacker who would rely on this to hack a server would be more in the script-kiddy category than a real hacker...

    Essentially this converts binary data to non binary data for transmission using mediums which do not support binary data...

    Have a nice day! / Bonne journée!

    That's true.
    We had removed Base64 usage from the code few months ago.

    Thanks
