    I ran a scan of my database and it is full of garbage like iframes and other "hacks."

    Does anyone have any idea of how to clean it without messing up the database?

    I checked the database by hand and it is full of advertisements and whatnot.

    Here are some of the things I found:

    Does anyone have any idea how this could have happened?

  2. A few. There's more than one way to hack a site, though, and spculation on that won't help.

    Let's fix ya!

    Thanks a lot.

    I think I will just try to restore a backup I made some time back and try to keep permissions strict.

    There is nothing I can do in the meantime to fix the database problem?

    I think it is just a database problem as I have scanned files and found nothing, but I could definitely have missed something.

    if you restore the database without following those steps, it could be a waste of time.

    did you check every single file and folder on your server?
    did you change every single password? (ftp, login, database)

    I dealt with it a bit back, and every time I thought I had everything cleaned, I was wrong. It's not easy, but if you're not thorough, it's pointless.

    I have not checked it all thoroughly.

    I did run into something else:


    Anybody know where/what that crap is?

    yup, more crap...
    you've probable got rogue php files that were put on your server

    do you happen to have a /skin/zero_vote directory anywhere on your server?

    Let me know if you see anything fishy in the code, please!
