    Hello, I found this file in wordpress 3.4: wp-dball.php

    There's no information about this file anywhere and other blogs of mine with same WordPress version seems to not have it.

    Its content looks safe, but security software marks it as unknown.

    Did someone hack my site or is a safe file? Do you have it in your blog installation?

    I just checked the download file for 3.4 here and found no file with that name. Where did you download 3.4? What directory is the file in?

    Thanks for your answer kmessinger,

    I upgraded directly from Worpdress Dashboard and the file is located in wp-includes, maybe is an old wordpress file that remains from an early WordPress version? (my blog started in 2007). I'd like to be sure because I had a security issue in the blog some months ago but I can't find information about this file even in wordpress.org site.

    I googled that file and it show up on several sites all with spammy entries about viagra.

    Check your site here, http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/scanner/

    That was just the security issue I had a couple of months ago. I've deleted the file and cross fingers. Sitecheck shows my blog as 'clean'. Thanks for your help.
