here's the code :

Yes, that's definitely the suspicious part. Remove just everything from "eval" to the ")); .

I have had this issue today as well on two PHP sites on our Windows 2008 Server, how does it happen in the first place? I would like to prevent it. What particular passwords should be changed? I have changed FTP passwords to the sites involved so far.

Thank You
