Hi, Android 8888. 

Unfortunately, the private site for submitting applications to the ASAP Council for review was never restored and there is no way to contact the Council members since the "membership" was only available from that site.

You are a member of UNITE so have those "credentials" to add to your completion of training at SWI.

Based on the inability to review applicants for ASAP, this thread will be closed.

Hello everyone.  Smiley

I am Portuguese and I'm a great enthusiast in IT and computers. Since I discovered and became a member of SpywareInfo forum in April 2013, I acquired a great interest and enthusiasm in learning to help users get rid of malware.

Over the last three years I have devoted many hours to study and learn the techniques of removing malware from computers with Windows OS and today I am a proud Helper at SWI forum. Of course all this would not have been possible without the excellent teachers such as Rocket Grannie, cnm, TheJoker, Budfred, screen317, nasdaq, among others.

I am also a member of UNITE and of the Malwarebytes forum.

A big thank you to all who make possible the existence of these forums in the fight against malware.  thumbsup

I just discovered that when I remember to use 'Site:' in my Google-pharmacy search, the hacked pages show up, NOT when I forget to use 'Site:'.  It's possible that the hacked pages never did actually disappear.

Upon Deeper Investigation:

Using https://aw-snap.info/file-viewer (with User Agent, Googlebot), the first of the pharmacy search results, 'http://****.org/ydhu-watch arjuna online' gives a "404 Not Found" result.

One of results, 'http://www.****.org/?page%3Abuy-online-steinberg-cubase-5%26page_id%3D4353&usg=AFQjCNHCzTsITLDmMWakqwOrrxPPbyBUWA&bvm=bv.110151844,d.eWE' gives a response of: "200 OK", "Set-Cookie: 864854e11328f635937114a993643a94=-; path=/", and "Content after the < /html> tag should be considered suspicious. < !-- 1451837145 --> "

Giving the fully decoded url of 'http://www.****.org/?page:buy-online-steinberg-cubase-5&page_id=4353&usg=AFQjCNHCzTsITLDmMWakqwOrrxPPbyBUWA&bvm=bv.110151844,d.eWE', the result is "410 Gone".

Using that decoded weblink with https://aw-snap.info/base64-decoder/ outputs:
1:  hxxp://****.org/?page:buy-online-steinberg-cubase-5

I still don't know the rules about including one's url; I did not see any on the forum pages that I visited.  Are one's urls only for PM's?

With much appreciation,

I read, "ASAP ensures that quality support and assistance will be freely available"  That's super fabulous, tremendously generous - because I need HELP!!!!!

I am a novice who has been tasked with migrating a site from Joomla 1.0.15 to Joomla 3.x.  I know; I know.  This site belongs to a highly regarded non-profit, who has and does help homeowners who have received inferior (sometimes unlivable homes) from unscrupulous builders / contractors.  I am having trouble migrating the site, but constant hacking assaults keep forcing me to take 2 steps back for every one forward. 

Google (Webmaster Tools) has notified me that we are hacked AGAIN.  This time the hack is different.  Google called it, url-injection (examples below).  In the past, I was always able to find the infected FILES.  I'm not having any luck this time, even though I've researched online for two weeks, now.

I read that I can protect the site with htaccess entries such as:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^page\: [NC]
​​RewriteRule .* - [L,G]

On the flip side, I read that "Using .htaccess files slows down your Apache http server.";  AND in the first trial (content above) the Google results disappeared for awhile, but now they show up again when I do a search for: 'site:****.org pharmacy'

Examples of hack:  (I'm new to this forum & don't know the policy about links.)

I did (stupidly, but I think my comp did not catch anything) open the two pages above, and looked at the source-code.  The hackers injected their url into the 'top of page' link and our PayPal module.  I have removed the 2 PayPal files (php & xml) for the time being.  I plan to update that code with prepared statements (having a little trouble).

How do I find (or debug) all the injected script?  How do I clean it?

With much appreciation,
