Hello -

I am not sure how this happened but someone was able to hack into our geeklog and add a marquee at the top of our pages between the codes

Text Formatted Code

<!-- End of Editor Load -->

(Marquee is here)

<script type="text/javascript">
    function delconfirm()
    {
        if (confirm("Do you really want to delete this item?"))
        {
          return true;
        } else {
          return false;
        }
    }
</script>

 


It's been so long since we have made any changes to the actual code of the site, I don't remember what files in Geeklog I would need to look at to find this offending marquee.

Can someone lead me in the right direction here? Again, the marquee is at the very top of every page on our GL site and between the codes listed above... I viewed the source to get it.... but of course its not in the files on my PC.

What files should I look at to find the code so that I can correct the site?

Which one exactly? There have been several security updates for 1.4.0 now. If you haven't installed them yet, I'd suggest you do that ASAP.

bye, Dirk

Thanks - that was the file where the marquee had been placed!

Thanks Dirk - yes, we haven't updated our GL in awhile - I'll do that now!

Thanks again -
