Corrupt entries added automagically to .htaccess? What?
My WordPress install was inaccessible this morning because this got added to my main .htaccess (the one directly in the WordPress install directory)
nphp_value suhosin.post.max_value_length 100000000nphp_value suhosin.request.max_value_length 100000000
The forum rendering might not show it as well as I would like but what I have is one single line that start with “nphp_value” and in the middle of the line I have “100000000nphp_value”…
Now this looks like an improperly escaped “newline” as what was probably supposed to be inserted there was “\n”, not “n” so this would have been inserted like this in the file:
php_value suhosin.post.max_value_length 100000000
php_value suhosin.request.max_value_length 100000000
I tried a few Twitter plugins yesterday (and I still had one installed today which I removed manually (I checked through the code and I saw nothing like this in it though).
I removed that line once and it didn’t work as it got appended again. I removed it a second time and now everything works as it didn’t get appended again.
Now I see to understand this is used to armor a WordPress installation or something so I don’t think I have been hacked but then, what happened?
PS: It is somewhat funny that I have a problem with suhosin considering what suhosin means (ie “guardian angel”)… (-;
