Support » Plugin: Exploit Scanner » [Plugin: Exploit Scanner] 0.97 blanks my site

  • Resolved headlessspider


    i updated the plugin this morning and immediately after that my site went blank on both the user and admin sides. i had to go to phpmyadmin to disable all the plugins and then re-enable them (except this plugin) once i got the admin interface back. i’ll do more testing later after i get back from running an errand.

  • update:

    to test the plugin, i tried activating it and the plugins page gave me the following error:

    Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_CLASS in /XXXXXXX/wp-content/plugins/exploit-scanner/exploit-scanner.php on line 346

    i hope this helps.

    Thanks for the report. I guess you’re using a host running PHP 4 which doesn’t support abstract classes. If this is the case then the quick fix for now is to remove the abstract keyword on line 346 (leave the rest intact) and comment out line 349 (which reads abstract function run();).

    Updated with PHP 4 compability in 0.97.1, sorry for the inconvenience and thanks again for posting.

    However, it should be mentioned that PHP 4 is an end of life product and no longer supported by the PHP Group with the last security fix in 2008.

    php4 support: i know. my host is yahoo and i have asked them several times _when_ are they going to upgrade to using php5. and the standard answer i get is that “yahoo’s customers are happy with php4 so they don’t see any need to upgrade anytime soon”. they’ll sink soon enough if they do not change that point of view or attitude. actively looking for another host that fit my needs.
