Godaddy Hosted Website Attacked – PHP Files In Directories

We have a static HTML site built in 2013 that we maintain. We got a notification from Godaddy that there were malicious files in the website. I started to remove them, but wanted to see what was in them. When I opened one of the files that was 3 level into the website it was extremely complicated. It looks like part of many arrays and just pulling parts of multiple arrays. I believe the end goal is to assemble the final script. It looks like this.

Another interesting thing about this attack is the date of the file. It is from 2013. I had made a complete back of the site on 2/15/2016, but the bad files were from 2013. None of the bad files were in my back in 2016.

Nothing was solved. I removed the old files and updated the .htaccess file. I found it interesting how the date could be manipulated.

I hope this helps someone one else out there….

 

Divi – Turn Off Lazy Load On Images

Started a new project with Divi and needed lazy load to not happen on the home page. Looking around I found the following page which got me started.

https://jeffbristow.com/technology/2015/10/28/divi-lazy-loading-images

What I needed to do is go to “wp-content\themes\Divi\includes\builder\scripts\frontend-builder-scripts.js”. On line 3375 I needed to change “Offeset: ‘75%'” to “offset: ‘400%'”.

How To Create A Parallax Effect in Gantry

This actually isn’t just for Ganty. It just involves a little CSS. I needed it for a section in a Gantry template, but you can use this anywhere.

I got this set up from good old W3Schools so you know it is solid.

https://www.w3schools.com/howto/tryit.asp?filename=tryhow_css_parallax

It is really just locking down the position of the background image and setting it to cover. I didn’t have to specify the height of the div in my case.

Solved – 500 Fabrik has generated an incorrect query for the list

I moved a Joomla 3.7.2 site that has a Fabrik application in it to a new host, and when I did I got the “500 Fabrik has generated an incorrect query for the list…” error.

I made sure the connection was good. The issue turned out to be the “List” was locked.

Another time I go this issue was due to my database connection. I moved the site to a new location but didn’t update the Fabrik “Connection”.

I downloaded the master .zip file from Git Hub.

https://github.com/Fabrik/fabrik

This didn’t install well. Missing XML file error.

I finally just used the Joomla Web Installer. It installed version 3.6 of Fabrik and worked well with my Joomla 3.7.2 core package.

I hope this helps someone else out there…
