comment How do I decode this WordPress hack?
Yeah, it was interesting, once I could read it. :-) I can't really tell if the vulnerability is in WordPress itself, a plugin, the ISP's server configuration, or the bbPress forum software though. I did find out that the installed version of bbPress was 1.0.1, and that there was a unix timestamp in some of the code that related to a date last October. I kept a copy of the 10 files before deleting them from the host. I'd put them somewhere in this post just for future readers' curiosity's sake. Any ideas about how to go about that?

comment How do I decode this WordPress hack?
What I found in the /.cache/ directory was a collection of 10 different files, all base64 encoded. The specific file pointed to had contents related to building fake blog entries. As best as I can tell, it looks like it was only intending to show its fake pages to search engine spiders, and not to human visitors.

Just for the fun of it, I took a peek at the "/public_html/forum/bb-includes/js/jquery/.cache/.%828E%0013%B8F3%BC1B%B22B%4F57‌​" file. The client installed Simple:Press a while back, a nice-but-primitive forum app.
