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?
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
