If you are regular visitor of my site, you might see some ups and downs in my blog. Last couple of weeks I am trying to fix the problem and solution. Even I have changed my server. Tried a lot of security fixes. But all become fail.
What was the problem?
The problem was inserting iframe (inline frame) html tag to my blog. It came automatically and I could not find any reason how it can insert in the html. If you are using wordpress as your blog, it will try to insert iframe on each index.php files. If it is successful, an iframe html come on your web pages. Most of the cases, it is visibly hidden. Otherwise your webpage will produce syntax errors. It is not only for wordpress blogs, but also it may affect plain static html sites or other markups. If it is affected to a static site, then the google will produce the warning that the site is affected. It looks like something like this
(it may vary depends upon you os / browser) .
Each time when I found a problem I will upload the files from my PC. After some hours I will find again that it is get affected. Too annoying right?
I made a lot of researches, in the first time I thought that it was a server problem, as they were changing their server machines. So I thought like that. After they get rid of with the problem, myself tried to find the problem. Later I found that it is called Iframe attack.
I googled for it and found that it is coming from my PC only. Yes the culprit was my local machine. My windows machine was affected with some Malware and it is doing all these nasty things. If you are using ftp it will intrude through that.
I immediately switched over to Ubuntu and cleaned up my web folder. I deleted all the files and uploaded latest wordpress version. I have changed my ftp username and password. Before that I took back up of my theme also. Now I become an Ubuntu fan. No more windows. Yes there is another reason for using Ubuntu ;).
I never faced the Iframe attack after that. Waiting for some feedback. Have you ever faced this type of problem. Please put some comment or share with me through twitter.
