PHP.RSTBackdoor trojan in WordPress site (5 posts)

    Today I have found the PHP.RSTBackdoor (http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/php.rstbackdoor.html) in the directory of WordPress on my web server. It was additional file main.php. The current version of WordPress is 2.0.1. I hope if I'll change one to 2.0.2 it helps me to avoid the problem in the future.

    You better wonder how someone got a file on your server. Did you download 2.0.1 from here? It would be clean.

    I don't remember exactly where I downloaded the file. I think I had received one from wordpress.org. I have got two installations at my server. One website had been affected only. This time I am using 2.0.2 for both websites.

    I cannot get into my WordPress at all...I keep getting this error:

    Parse error: parse error, unexpected '<', expecting ']' in /home/revoltam/public_html/wp-content/themes/BurninR/ads.php on line 72

    I hope it isn't a trojan...I have 2.0.1 and am new to this so do not have much tech expertise for sure...if I want 2.0.2 do I have to uninstall the 2.0.1? Will I lose everything I have on the one I have now? Any help would be appreciated...

    Thanks

    sugarplum, your problem is nothing to do with "trojans". It has to do with some bad code in the file ads.php
