similar results to yours. Someone modified one or more of your PHP
files. Perhaps they forgot to upload 'functions.inc.php' and you got
lucky. So you or your ISP has a security vulnerability somewhere. You
should scour your site's files for possible entry points and other
Simply restoring the original file(s) isn't a good solution. You've got
to find the underlying problem that allowed the site to be hacked in the
first place and fix that problem. Otherwise, it is an open invitation
to get hacked again.
You should save hacked files you come across for later reference.
Patterns can emerge that help you or your ISP track down the problem. I
keep malware samples I come across on my computer renamed with harmless
file extensions (e.g. .txt or .dat).
You should also seriously consider installing WebCron Site Backup on
your website. It can detect what files have changed since the last
backup and send an e-mail report to you so you can detect intruders and
exactly what files they changed without wasting a lot of time. The
product is open source and I developed it.
Barebones CMS is a high-performance, open source content management
system for web developers operating in a team environment.

- Hi All
I was updating a site I maintain this morning to fix some width issues
(still doing that!!) and I came across something odd.
My wife's laptop uses IE for her browser, where as I prefer fire fox and
I noticed on fire fox the picture border set to 1 pixel is white where
as in IE the border I am guessing is black cause it does not show up.
Is the block of photos for 2009 mid page.
Is there a reason for this and if so is there a way to set the border
color for picture borders?
I know I can edit the photos to add this and just turn borders off but
just curious if there is a coding issue that might be causing this
