Support » Plugin: W3 Total Cache » Spam URL injected into top left of pages

  • Firstly, I can’t be sure it is this plugin with the fault, however the issue only occured after installing the plugin yesterday. Also, I have disabled this plugin only (leaving others enabled) and the issue has gone away… for now…

    While I am monitoring I just wanted to put this out there to see if anyone else is experiencing the issue?

    URL friv.webeden.co.uk has been injected top left hand side of each page.

    Looking at a google search its happening to a lot of sites

    Again I’m not blaming this plugin as I have no proof its what caused it.

  • Well, I am a bit surprised to see this post so I come to check my site.

    I checked the source homepage using Google Chrome but I found no link as you said.

    You may want to check again where is the source so you can get risk of it completely. 🙂

    It has disappeared and remained that way since disabling the plugin…
    Further Googling finds this was an issue for a lot of sites several months ago, was fixed with an update but I am running latest version. The plugin is running on another site with no issue. Weird.

    Ah, found the culprit
    Was Google Maps Plugin by Daniel Martyn

    …I wonder how that happened
