[resolved] [NSFW] Mobile versions of my blog display spammy gobbledegook (11 posts)

    My blog looks fine on desktops. Chrome, Safari and Firefox all display it correctly.

    But when I load the blog in iphone Safari or Atomic (alternate iphone browser,) random spammy text with links appears superimposed over my blog. It's nonsense words with active links for "Suhagra," "fast cash advances" and "cash payday loans." It just floats over my blog. What is this? How do I get rid of it?

    It seems your site has been hacked. Can you post your site URL?

    same thing happened to mine. Checked it on desktop and iPad. It's only visible on my iPhone. Please help http://www.ipadloops.com you'll have to look at it from an iPhone or possibly an iPod Touch.

    The URL is http://anti-heroes.net/blog NSFW-- cartoon erotica.

    Again, the weirdness only appears on the iphone. I just checked it on the iPad and it looks normal.

    Djpuzzle, your site doesn't show the spam on my iphone. Did you fix it?

    Yes I figured it out late last night. There was a chunk of Java in the header so I deleted it. Thanks

    Thanks a lot, Djpuzzle, you were right-- it's in the header. Some crap called "Wonderful Ad Box Loader."

    I deleted it and am now changing my password. Thanks again.

    We have the exact same problem. Trouble is, it's not in our header. I didn't write the code to the website, and the guy who did no longer works here.

    I've tried going through all our code searching for "Wonderful" or "Loader" and haven't found anything. In case the same virus was placed on our site with a different name, anything else I might look for to identify it? Thanks in advance!

    But than just the standard "reinstall the entire website advice" -- we have this exact virus -- it'd be nice if someone could send me something more specific to look for to identify it, so we can remove it with a scalpel rather than an axe.

    Thanks!

    Yea mine was just in the Header.php file, accessible through the Editor in the Dashboard. You checked there and couldn't find it?

    Every hack is different and every hacked site may have a different hidden back door. That is why you need to clean your entire site. Do not look for magic bullets. There aren't any. If you do not want the hacker to walk straight back into your site, follow every one of those resources listed above.
