Any ideas about the security hole? I've been hacked, too, and I really wonder what was changed. I can't find anything in the database and in the php-files.

I can't figure out how this http://www.vaue160.org/union/modules/wfsection/ was done! Can you tell me how to fix this? I would like to start using SmartSections if I can transfer my articles.

WF-Section is an old module that is no longer supported, as far as I know. As such, any security vulnerabilities are not being watch and/or patched as quickly as more active projects such as SmartSection.

My recommendation would be to migrate to SmartSection as it's development and support is quite proactive.

HTH.

Just a guess here, but take a look in some of your index.php and index.htm files to see if they all have hacker code in them. I bet all of them have been overwritten.

If your site is on a shared server, it is most likely that the server itself has been compromised (ie. that the hole is not in your personal account, although it is still possible of course).

Let your host know as they may need to clean up the server. However, don't trust them to clean up your account - do that yourself!

No that was the only file defaced! The hack had to be to my database on the shared server - I've changed all the passwords.

Is there a script to convert my articles to SmartSections?

Unfortunately there isn't a script yet for Wf-Section 2.x to SmartSection... although I'm sure the SmartFactory team would love to see one, if someone was to write it

I do believe however that Phppp's Article module (not to be confused with AndyM's Articles module!) may have a transfer script.

OK.

I found the information in the database - config footer and config metadata - that had been corrupted.

However, even after erasing this information in the database I still get the islamic message.

What am I missing?

Just clear the contents of your templates_c and cache directory. Then do a refresh on your page.

This is very true - although Catzwolf (aka John_N) has said that he will try and release a more secure version of this module shortly... however as he has other projects, I would suspsect this will not be updated as regularly as SmartSection or Phppp's "Article" module.

(I think Phppp's Article module has an import script for WF-Section 1 & 2 as well?)

I was hacked also. Didn't really see anything until I went and looked at the blocks. The hacker was able to insert a custom block into my XOOPS with a redirect to his website.

For the moment, I've shut down my website to see what I want to do.
