Malicious Cookie Added to Blog (4 posts)

    I noticed a vertical scrollbar appearing in my posts that I couldn't figure out what's causing it. After many attempts and trial and error, I finally figured out the issue, but I have no idea how to fix it.

    The vertical scrollbar is caused by a cookie apparently. What it does is add a line of code that adds a 1x1 pixel with a link to my site (as an iframe, which causes the scrollbar). The pixel is in the upper left of the screen. They code seems a little different each time, so I can't go to the site and attack them. Today it's: <iframe src="http://vpfjafq.co.tv/?go=1" width="1" height="1"></iframe> But it's been other things, but it's alway a .co.tv site that doesn't point to anything. I checked out the Whois and it says the domain is owned by these guys: http://www.reg2c.com/

    Here's the thing. It only appears when I'm logged in as an admin. If you're not logged in, then you don't see it. If I clear the cookies, it's gone, but I'm also logged out. As soon as I log in, it's back. So, it's being placed by something in wordpress.

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Having the same problem here.
    <iframe src="http://vuzxzkp.co.tv/?go=1" width="1" height="1"></iframe>

    I did a clean install but the link frame came back. Any ideas? Please help.

    You were right esmi, it was hacked. Had to remove and clean everything, reset passwords on ftp, hosting panel and so on. I used the sucuri service to remove the malware and everything is back to normal except for a problem with ie8 which I'm addressing on another post.

    Anyways, thanks for the info. esmi.
