Javascript Added to bottom of site - Virus

Hi All,

Hoping someone can answer this, the following code is getting added to the bottom of our site and it does look like a virus. Does anyone know what it is or how it is getting there. Just so you know, it is not on our local files and is only on the remote. Any info will be appreciated.

Ah, now that's a real question.

There are a number of possibilities.  Unfortunately, I don't know for certain, especially without knowing specifics about the server on which this code was found, or who has access to it, or the kind of programs that execute on it, etc.

Yes, it is a virus.

How did it get there?  I don't know.

Remove it...

Hi,

Thanks for this. I think to be more specific what i am looking for is: what the code does when scrambled as i am assuming it is scrambled java script. I would also like to know how anyone would do this and if anyone has seen anything like this before can they shed any light?

Thanks

How would someone do this?

Well, they would first figure out what they want to generate (e.g., the "iframe" shown above), then put that in a string, and convert the individual characters into numeric values.  For example, using something like the code shown below.

Then, they would take the numbers, and put them into an array, and from the array, create a string.

... does that make sense?



<html>
<body>
 
<script type="text/javascript">
 
var str='<iframe width="480"'
for ( var i = 0; i < str.length; i++ ) {
  document.write( str[ i ] + ' = ' + str.charCodeAt( i ) + '<br />')
}
</script>
 
</body>
</html>

Hi,

Thanks for this. My question is not so much how they created the string, but how it is likely to get onto our site. Thanks for your help.
