How to know if I'm hacked? (9 posts)

    Analyzing Google analytics data provides good info for anyone to monitor their blog. My blog shows that there are views for a seemingly non existent HTML page on my site that is evidently X-rated...obviously someone trying to cause trouble to me.

    How can I know if the HTML injection succeeded or not? When I go to the link, it shows as a 404 page on my blog.

    And oh yes, we must constantly make WordPress stronger and stronger. It seems insecure to me right now. The war against hackers must never end, and the only way is to keep one step ahead of them, always....

    I hope the WordPress coders play chess :/

    how about getting over the mystery, finally, and providing a link to the site in question?

    Ive helped you previously and had to jump through hoops with generic answers -- Im not going to do that this time :<

    Whooami,

    Providing a link is not going to show anything, because the page just doesn't exist. But someone has been trying to get me into trouble by putting a nonexistent link (or so it seems) on Web 2.0 sites.

    Could be a competitor or something. You won't believe the lengths some morons go through.

    For obvious reasons, I'd rather not post my URL here on a public forum. Going to the "page" just shows a 404 page, so it won't show anything either.

    I'm just nervous, because of all these ingenious or perhaps dumb tactics being used by competitors(?)

    Recent spate of WordPress hack incidents has not helped ease that nervousness. If it's nothing to worry about, then OK.

    I dont think I said that, did I? Nope, sure didnt.

    Providing a link is not going to show anything, because the page just doesn't exist.

    I didnt ask for a link to the page, I asked for a link to the site.

    For obvious reasons, I'd rather not post my URL here on a public forum.

    Actually, its obvious you dont, and your post history attests to that. The reason, isnt so obvious, sorry.

    The simple fact is, if you want GOOD advice thats specific to your site, and not generic, than you need to give up a url. If all you want is generic advice than there is plenty of it ALREADY here, for you to read:

    there you go, have at it.

    heres another:

    Most people here dont have the time or inclination to regurgitate information thats already available elsewhere.

    I have to agree with whooami here.

    If you're just looking for script injection then you can always run "select id from wp_posts where post_content like '%<script%';" on your database to see if any scripts have been added to your posts..

    Otherwise, link your site. The only reason not to link your site is; a) you're one of the hackers fishing for ways TO hack a wordpress site, or b) you are embarrassed of the content of your site.

    If it's A piss off. If it's B I don't think you have a thing to worry about here. You wont be judged no matter whats on there.. (Short of child porn or something.. )

    palamedes,

    lots of people dont want their urls posted here, for whatever reason.. and thats fine. However its frustrating to people trying to help when those same people ask very specific questions and dont want to.

    I couldnt care less about the former, but if someone wants specific help they need to buck up and provide a link.

    it happens all of the time with CSS issues, lots of code, OR even better they put up an image (like anyone can tell what might be wrong with someone else CSS based on a fricking image??!!), but nothing to look at.. and that just makes us work harder to figure out what the problem might be.

    This ought not be made into a job by people just providing enough info to get by. Its free help, make it easy on the helper is all I am saying.

    Oh.. hrmm I really can't imagine not being willing to provide a link.. but then I guess I have nothing to hide..

    And yes if you want any kind of specific help a link is required.. For the same reason it's very hard to get good technical support over the phone..

    whooami why does your name link your blog but mine doesnt? is there a minimum post count or something?

    Good question, and I dont know. I know there used to be something that kicked in and did that. Make sure that you have a web site listed in your profile, without that, it wont ever be there.
