[resolved] GraphicsArcade.com Hack (7 posts)

    Today I went into my admin page - business as usual - saw two updates (can't remember which two) and when they finished I started getting random pop-ups from graphics.


    It's on every single page, click somewhere, they pop up. Go to a new page, they follow me.

    Also, when I try to create a new post, the subject title is automatically changed to "I like turtles." or "I hate it when there's a tiger in my bathroom." or "Co za asy..." no matter what I try to type one of those three messages are there instead.

    It's very frustrating to say the least. Fortunately it doesn't appear to have effected the actual website - but I can't post new content because of this. Any suggestions will be super helpful!

    ...new update, the "Publish" button moves when I put my cursor over it so I can't easily publish a new post. This Hack is sooo annoying!

    Also, I just tried restoring yesterday's backup but the problem still exists. Luckily I have 2 plugins to update now. "All in One SEO Pack" by Michael Torbet and "Soundcloud is Gold" by Thomas Michalak at Mighty Mess. I assume that when I updated one of them, the 'hack' or 'virus' spread... not sure why restoring to the most recent back up didn't get rid of the problem.

    Go to the editor of "Mystique" and remove following code from function.php (theme folder) - it's towards the bottom:

    [ 82 line code replaced with http://pastebin.com/TKQdVYKf Normally more than 10 lines of code is just moderated but that's a funny one. ]

    ...it was meant as an "April Fool's prank" that inevitably affected all "Mystique Theme" users. At least there is a fix!

    Ha, this is really unbelievable. I'm suffering from the same issue, I thought WordPress would be more hack proof.

    JMatt578, thanks for trying to solve this, but I find your explanation rather unclear. In my line 82 I have dimensions_fixed_c2right' => '640',, it doesn't seem to be what you are pointing at.
