Support » Plugin: Special Text Boxes » My site was exploited by this plugin

  • This plugin contained a file which installed malware on my server and sent spam emails out to thousands of my clients. I do not recommend this plug-in. (although it worked pretty well when it wasn’t screwing me over!)

  • The same thing happened on my server as well.
    When I searched with clamav, I have found the following trojans.

    /wp-content/plugins/wp-special-textboxes/lib/404.php: PHP.Trojan.WebShell-7 FOUND
    /wp-content/plugins/wp-special-textboxes/lib.zip: PHP.Trojan.WebShell-7 FOUND

    not sure if it came with the plugin or not. Now I can’t find this plugin in the plugin search. It sent thousands of emails 🙁
