Support » Plugin: AceIDE » Generic.Hidden.Code.2

  • Hello,

    I’m getting a security warning from Vaultpress about the plugin ACEide.

    Generic.Hidden.Code.2
    This file contains suspicious hidden code, and should be checked for recent changes, or malicious code. Often hackers try to hide their hack attempts by obfuscating their attack code, to make it harder to detect. VaultPress has detected a string of suspicious characters in this file. Please check your backup history for recent changes to this file, or contact a Safekeeper if you are unsure.

    DES.php
    /wp-content/plugins/aceide/vendor/phpseclib/phpseclib/phpseclib/Crypt

    Any ideas if this is just part of the code or something to be worried about

    Hi alicamera,

    This isn’t something I’ve come across before. I can only assume that either this file has been infected somehow, or this is a false positive.

    Feel free to investigate yourself, however. If the file is infected, it may not be the only one…

    Kind regards,
    Shane

    It’s probably just a false positive due to the amount of array strings in that particular file. Just compare against a clean file to verify they are identical.
