Noticed today, that when I click on my WP portfolio page it locks up, and won´t load the pictures, leaving my whole blog locked for several minutes. I´ve also noticed, that this takes another of my WP pages (completely different domain, hosting and WP setup) offine at the same time. I´m sure it´s some sort of malware, but I can´t find out exactly what it is.
Have people experienced this?
Also, what security plug-ins do people trust? What is the best one for searching and removing infections?

Do you have a link?October 22, 2012 at 8:49 am #112391
This is really annoying now. I´ve deleted all files, and started again with a new database. It seems any page with lots of pictures freezes the whole site (http://visualoriginal.com/portfolio/)and also freezes my other site at centroeducativoguadiel.es…. Does anyone have any theories? Really need help with this.October 22, 2012 at 9:38 am #112397
Now, all I´m getting is….
You don’t have permission to access / on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache Server at http://www.visualoriginal.com Port 80_
I presume because of the number of requests on the server. Really have no idea what is going on!!
HELP !!October 22, 2012 at 9:42 am #112398ideaprisonParticipant
try removing the .htaccess file (first back it up)
it could also mean there is no index.php file
without an index file (any extension) you will either see an open directory, or in most cases a forbidden errorOctober 22, 2012 at 11:15 am #112413
The initial problem seems to have deleted several important files, including the Index.php file. Has anyone heard of such a destructive virus? What should I do to make sure this doesn´t happen again?

I could really do with some help on this one, because I still haven´t found a solution. Godaddy say it´s a scripting or ISP issue. The guy who wrote the theme says he´s never seen a problem like it. I´ve removed deleted wordpress, deleted the database, and started again…still the same issue, in that on the portfolio page http://visualoriginal.com/portfolio, it locks up, and also locks up my page at centroeducativoguadiel.es.
All plug ins have been deleted, so it´s not that.October 25, 2012 at 6:58 am #112606Paulie_DMember
I’m seeing long img sources referencing two HTTP sources…is that normal with WP?

Timthumb is not an “out of the box” feature with WordPress, so would assume that’s a plugin. Could as well be the source of the problem, cause when I load the page, the images don’t show. However when I go to straight to the URL of those images, they do show up.
@Orangeboy: even though you say all plugins have been disabled, I wonder where that Timthumb stuff comes from then? Maybe it’s part of the theme? Try activating another theme just to see if that loads your page at least.October 25, 2012 at 7:16 am #112609
I do think it has something to do with Timthumb, which re-sizes images. But I have no idea how to fix it.October 25, 2012 at 7:17 am #112610
I think Tim Thumb is integral to the theme….and also the problem.October 25, 2012 at 8:26 am #112616JohnParticipant
And why its there 2 sources?
If it can’t get one of them, then it will just stop.October 25, 2012 at 5:10 pm #112645
I think it is definitely something to do with tim thumb. It´s really odd. If you go to visualoriginal.com/portfolio and inspect it, it gives out 500 and 504 errors, but if you post the image address into a browser it goes to the image!!!
Does anyone have any ideas. I´ve gone though so many fixes with Timthumb, that I don´t know what to do next.October 25, 2012 at 6:02 pm #112647chrisburtonParticipant
@orangeboy Was this theme free?
I was searching around last week on my hosting providers blog and came across this:October 26, 2012 at 12:11 pm #112693chrisburtonParticipant
@orangeboy Any luck with the solution I posted above?
