I've had two of my XOOPS sites hacked where a PHP Shell script which replaces the adminmenu.php file (and other files) in the /cache dir.

Basically, you don't notice it until you try to log into the admin area, you will either get the shell script's output, or it will fail to load.

I've currently suspended the sites until I can check them over fully, but I thought I would post this here as a "heads up" to other users.

And before anyone says, yes they are using the latest 2.0.16 and XOOPS protector modules.

Perhaps some people could have a think about how this happened and think of a fix.

Do you have a LOG file from this attack?

And do you use /have the SPAW editor on your webspace?

Bandit-X mentioned suspicious entries in his error log yesterday, see here.
He only forgot to mention what was so suspicious about the entries...

I've not had chance to look through the log file properly yet, but specific searches for adminmenu.php has only shown attempts to view it. Also, nothing for SPAW has cropped up.

The XP module log shows:

So far, the DB seems untouched. I've been going through changing the table prefixes, and the password, etc. I'll audit it properly when I can.

I found these three in the "uploads" folder.

What did they do?

The TurkHackTeam... That wasn't very nice of them now was it.

Is it an idea to start blocking all IP's starting with 88.243 and 85.101 ?
