Support » Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps » Strange Text in Robots file

  • Resolved heliumdesign


    I just installed XML plugin the other day, and our robots.txt file looks like this. What is the

    "<div id="linksID">
    <a href=/enchiridion209/>enchiridion209</a>
    part all about?
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /wp-admin/
    Disallow: /wp-includes/
    <div id="linksID">
    <a href=/enchiridion209/>enchiridion209</a>

  • Definitely clean that out, and run your site through a site scan like Sucuri, as that code has been hacked.

    If you do a search for “<script>document.getElementById(“linksID”).style.display=”none”</script>” you’ll see a ton of site’s “robots.txt” files infected with the same hack.

    That is not from the plugin. Better re-install your whole site, since it looks it has been hacked.
