  • My site could be found here:

    My theme uses a weird base64 encode ‘code’ which I would like to replace with a simple footer that looks just the same, but has copyright notice in it. Any suggestions?

    The content of the footer is listed below:

    <?php $_F=__FILE__;$_X=’Pz48ZDR2IDRkPSJmMjJ0NXIiPg0KPGQ0diBjbDFzcz0iMWw0Z25sNWZ0Ij5ENXM0Z246IDwxIGhyNWY9Imh0dHA6Ly93d3cubTIybmI0bmcyLmMybS8iPkI0bmcyPC8xPiA8L2Q0dj4gPGQ0diBjbDFzcz0iMWw0Z25yNGdodCI+IEMyZDRuZzogPDEgaHI1Zj0iaHR0cDovL3d3dy5nMnNzNHBiNG5nMi5jMi4zay8iPkZyNTUgQjRuZzI8LzE+IHwgPDEgaHI1Zj0iaHR0cDovL3d3dy5nNW41cjRjM3I1LmMybSI+RzVuNXI0YyBEcjNnczwvMT4gfCA8MSBocjVmPSJodHRwOi8vd3d3LmI0bmcyZDF6emw1LmMyLjNrIj5GcjU1IEI0bmcyPC8xPiA8L2Q0dj4NCjwvZDR2Pg0KPC9kNHY+CQ0KIDwvZDR2Pg0KPC9iMmR5Pg0KPC9odG1sPg==’;eval(base64_decode(‘JF9YPWJhc2U2NF9kZWNvZGUoJF9YKTskX1g9c3RydHIoJF9YLCcxMjM0NTZhb3VpZScsJ2FvdWllMTIzNDU2Jyk7JF9SPWVyZWdfcmVwbGFjZSgnX19GSUxFX18nLCInIi4kX0YuIiciLCRfWCk7ZXZhbCgkX1IpOyRfUj0wOyRfWD0wOw==’));?>

    Encrypted themes and how to decoded them will help you find out what’s there and decide what you want to remove or keep.

    I wouldn’t trust any theme that has encrypted code…if it’s in the footer, who knows where else it is in the theme? You can use a free theme with very similar features, without the encryption…


    I used one of the decoders and yet I got nothing. As in the form refreshed on its own (I did it thrice) and I got nothing back.

    Is there anyway to just recreate the footer in totally fresh code without me having to use the decoded code?

    Look at your page source; this is what is rendered as the footer:

    <div id="footer">
    <div class="alignleft">Design: <a href="">Bingo</a> </div> <div class="alignright"> Coding: <a href="">Free Bingo</a> | <a href="">Generic Drugs</a> | <a href="">Free Bingo</a> </div>

    You can try copying that code and deleting the links, paste it into footer.php and see if your page displays correctly.

    But that said, I don’t trust encrypted themes, as does Figaro. Best to find a clean theme. Never know what’s hidden.
