Hello all, I’m a new user to the forum, and I have a question for you knowledgeable folk. I recently got hacked and the hacker planted some blocks of code for a Yahoo! Counter that I never installed. I need to know if there is a way to tell which PHP file this block of code is hidden in. I use a simple CMS for my website, and it has hundreds of PHP files that assemble the pages, and I have no idea which one of those has this rogue code. I have spent hours digging through the filetree, bringing up each PHP file, inspecting it, then closing it, to no avail. I just can’t find this code, but when I view the page’s source in my browser, there it is.
Is there some kind of tool that can be installed server side that will allow me to conduct a search of all the php files in the tree, looking for this block of code? Or is there some simple way to accomplish this? I am at my wits end, here.
thanks so much for all your help. Without folks like you, us novice programmers would never get to be as skilled as you.
