[resolved] [closed] Wow, just wow. URL Masking-type site hijacking with iframes (7 posts)

    I'd not seen this kind of site hijacking before, perhaps it's been around and I live in a cave, but it still sucks.

    I have a site called oldknowhow.com and I haven't been on there in a good long while, (One of those someday... type-projects) and decided I wanted to write a new article. Get on my Dashboard and I noticed that jetpack is reporting my top searches are coming from cosplaybay.com. I though to myself, that's interesting, I wonder what that is, so I check it out.

    Well, it's my site loaded in an iframe and somehow they have managed to replace all my google ad code with their own, but still display my site in its entirety.

    What I did was add the javascript found on this great webpage: http://www.willmaster.com/library/web-development/URL-masking.php to my index.php

    None of the iframe break-out plugins worked, none of my .htaccess tricks worked, but this code did!

    I'm putting it into every site I own after this experience.

    The plot thickens.

    I decided to check out that happens when I go to cosplaybay.com/wp-admin.php

    It takes me to this:

    Not good at all.
    I can see this as a HUGE security risk if your users use google to get to your site (As many do) and then create an account, or log in with their existing.

    Am I going to have to add the breakout javascript to every .php page?

    I really just want to know how I find this .. where to go .. where to look .. how to stop it. I tried to figure it out on my own and everything looked foreign to me. I don't have much time
