  • I have wordpress 3.2.1 and i had the same problem. Yo need to delate that lines in all your index.php files (themes, wp-content…) and your blog will work again 😉

    i’ve got it on 2 sites; second time in a month since installing/upgrading to 3.2.1

    @diegazo, easy fix yes; total pain when one site is over 500 instances of the exploit 😉

    i’ve found it in the following places in my sites:

    *home.php
      *index.php
      *default.php

    Yes, the hack is in all files with that name (or if they have that words in the name). I’ve WordPress MU and i deleted all files by hand (over 90).

    We discover the problem. It’s about timthumb.php. We were atacked on September, and yesterday. We fix the problem on September (update timthumb, clean .htaccess), but we didn’t clean themes cache (Minimal, Coldstone…), and there were two malicious files (php and png). That files were the last visited before yesterday atack. The IP was 83.103.119.239. Erase all that files and all will be ok.

    @diegazo, exactly the same on my primary site (running MU) that got hit in sept as well. totally forgot about the cache in the themes 🙁 600 files to clean up…wpmu site had about 50 themes on it, and around 25 plugins.

    I don’t think this is alpha/beta-testing related.

    I was using the beta version of wp when this happen. But I have other site that got hit at the sane time that was using 3.2.1

    I was using the beta version of wp when this happen.

    Right, but that’s just coincidental. You’ll get better response by posting in the correct forum, i.e. How-To and Troubleshooting; the people monitoring the Alpha/Beta forum are generally looking for WP 3.3 bugfixes, and would probably be less-likely to respond to a general site-hack topic in that forum.

    Fortunately, one of the moderators moved your post for you. 🙂

    Here is what I used to fix it, without restoring backups. Had over 2000 clients’s files infected. Use it at your own risks or advice your sysadmin to run it.

    [Code moderated as per the Forum Rules. The maximum number of lines of code that you can post in these forums is ten lines. Please use the pastebin]

    thabob, you need to turn that into a plugin.. that say runs a cron job on a time schedule…

    I need to find the source first, I am not even sure it is a WordPress that caused this. I did not found any file named timthumb.php. I also have joomlaa, drupal and wikis installed. Plus it appears my WPs were working fine.

    Make it run as a cron job once solve this problem, it just recover if your backup procedure is to heavy.

    the first time the exploit occurred for me was back in sept, and was a hijacked .htaccess file that was including a “Thumbs.DB” file, which was in the root of the wordpress install. It contained the same line of code that is included at the end of all the infected .php files.

    I have a copy of the most recent hack, and can put it up on a hackpad if needed. I however don’t have the original Thumbs.DB file since I purged it after the last cleanup.

    the first time the exploit occurred for me was back in sept, and was a hijacked .htaccess file that was including a “Thumbs.DB” file, which was in the root of the wordpress install.

    Thumb.db is a Windows (MS) construct. I notice that some theme/plugin developers leave that and the Mac version (DS_Store) in their directories by accident. Strange that you found one in the root.

    I have a copy of the most recent hack, and can put it up on a hackpad if needed.

    Can you put it up on pastebin (please use pastebin per forum rules) and post the link here? I’d like to examine it.

    @mickeyroush, it’s a known exploit that has been popping up on a lot of WP based sites (which are probably not up to date on security releases). I don’t think it really is WP related though. I’ve found a few friends who have been affected by this same exploit on servers w/out WP installed. It is more than likely an exploit tied back to phpMyAdmin or a server out-of-date on it’s security releases. (i know mine is out of date for a few apps).

    the Thumbs.DB exploit was talked about here a few months back actually. here is the link to that forum entry: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/where-to-start-on-this-htaccess-issue

    here’s is the ta”offical” release about the “Tim Thumb” 0day exploit: http://www.hackersbay.in/2011/08/tim-thumb-wordpress-exploit.html

    here is the link to the pastebin I just made for this as well: http://wordpress.pastebin.ca/2090298

    the Thumbs.DB exploit was talked about here a few months back actually. here is the link to that forum entry: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/where-to-start-on-this-htaccess-issue

    Thanks for the link on that. I wasn’t aware of the thumbs.db exploit.

    I am aware of the the timthumb exploit. I had to create my own directives to stop the fingerprinting of it.

    Checking out pastebin now…….thanks.
