footer.php has been hacked

hello! I have noticed after a big penalization from google, that my footer.php had been hacked, it was modified, someone added a "include("class/prefer.php");" line
then this prefer.php was created under class directory!

this hack was totally invisible for users, but for googlebot it added a huge quantity of links to some adults sites, the prefer.php content was taken from xe-xenical.com, I would love sueing this... if only I could

how this could have happend?? how can I avoid it in the future?

thanks for your help

Re: footer.php has been hacked

I had the same exact problem. Currently using XOOPS 2.2.6. Thanks for the hint of tracking down what had been modified.

I use 2.0.18.1 on 3 websites.
None of them have this issue
