  • I dont know why but your plugin is redirecting any visitor to my site to some weird sites. Whats going on? Is this a virus? Or a bug? OR whatever? Might it infect my website?

  • I have the same problem 🙁 Delete this plugin and find
    <script language=javascript>eval(String.fromCharCode(
    in mySQL and everything will be fine 😉

    Delete all caches after.

    Hello,

    Here is an alternative to put in function.php

    function get_rdr_related_post($post_id){
        $tags = wp_get_post_tags($post_id);
        if ($tags) {
            
            //$first_tag = $tags[0]->term_id;
            $tag_ids = array();	
            foreach($tags as $individual_tag){
                $tag_ids[] = $individual_tag->term_id;
            } 
    
            $args=array(
                'tag__in' => $tag_ids,
                'post__not_in'      => array($post_id),
                'posts_per_page'    =>3,
                'caller_get_posts'  =>1,
                'meta_key'          => '_thumbnail_id',
                'orderby'           => 'rand',
            );
            $my_query = new WP_Query($args);
            if( $my_query->have_posts() ) {
                while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post(); ?>
                <div class="col">
                    <a href="<?php echo esc_url( get_permalink() ); ?>">
                        <?php the_post_thumbnail('medium', array('class' => 'rdrit-home-thumbnail-max200') ); ?>
                    </a>
                    <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
                </div>
                <?php
                endwhile;
            }
            wp_reset_query();
        }
    }

    Same issue. People, uninstall, this plug-in has been compromised.

    Check the wp_options table:

    -- Show "infected" rows
    SELECT * FROM wp_options  WHERE option_value LIKE '%eval(String.fromCharCode%';
    
    -- Delete rows
    DELETE FROM wp_options  WHERE option_value LIKE '%eval(String.fromCharCode%';
    
    -- Delete all data related to the plug-in
    DELETE FROM wp_options  WHERE option_name LIKE '%yuzo%';

    mary might this plugin EDIT or ALTER any other php or post database in my system?

    @floriante See my reply to the other thread where you replied. In short: I don’t think so but don’t take my word for it.

    Shakaren i removed rows with:

    — Delete rows
    DELETE FROM wp_options WHERE option_value LIKE ‘%eval(String.fromCharCode%’;
    — Delete all data related to the plug-in
    DELETE FROM wp_options WHERE option_name LIKE ‘%yuzo%’;

    and i also uninstalled the plugin. I checked the files and no difference.

    Might this hack change other sections of the databae? shall i restore the older db?
