Support » Plugin: SearchIQ - The Search Solution » Plugin is corrupted – Malware Pop-up adds

  • Resolved popac


    I have been using the plugin for a long time and i am very satisfied with the functionality but lately the plugin started to showing without my permission 320×100 sticky bottom add (mobile only and western countries) and few days ago (december 10th) started showing unwanted pop-up ads on every new opened page… (again mobile, but sometimes desktop too, western countries – USA etc) and in website root folder I found file sw.js…which is directly related to the plugin – checked! I have this file…saved…
    Please check what is going on… Plugin is removed, and now I don’t have problem with malware pop-up adds…

    @popac Please share your SearchIQ username or registered email.

    Sorry, false positive… if I can i will delete thread…
    Problem is hacked database… just before searchIQ hook (in sourcecode) was injected malicious js… and when I removed plugin, i don’t know how, this js is stopped to work… about 24 hours. When I found the same problem again, downloaded sql database, search for malicious .js and found where is the problem… wp-options table is injected and this .js could not be deleted regularly but manually because wordpress (admin options etc) does not see that hook. Also phpmyadmin was useless.
    Again, sorry… I already said, you have great plugin!
    Good luck in further work i wish !
