i have very strange problem with my vbulletin board (3.8.7). The problem is Google Re-Direct clicks to my forum to MyFileStore.com. I read everything on vbseo and vbulletin boards and reinstalled vbseo, which is supposedly causing the problem. But today the problem came back.
1)check vbulletin.com for security patches
2)temporarly disable custom plugins
3) redirection gone ? good not gone ? well.....
4)you have a problem on the server that needs to be investigated by somebody with full access
that is exploit code disable base64_encode and base64_decode PHP functions in php.ini do remember that vBulletin uses those itself on upgrades/installs so you need to renable them if you are going to upgrade/install also "register_globals = off" in php.ini restart the server after editing php.ini the "@" you see before PHP functions calls cause that script to throw no errormessage if the function fails.Also have you seen this
1.) So if this "virus code" is in "datastore", then if i disable/enable any plugin, datastore will be cleared and "virus code" will vanish?
2.) But from what i understand, it will come back and attach "virus code" again. So how do i find it source and delete it completely?
Do i understand that correctly?
The best thing you can do is contact vBulletin support the creators of the product are the most qualified to tell you howto deal with this.It's possible it comes back but be carefull with the datastore if you do anything wrong it might corrupt your database and your board will stop working.Ask Steve at vbulletin.com he is verry smart with things like this.it might not be vbSeo look here what yui library version are you running ? try in your vBulletin control panel
Admin CP >> Settings >> Options >> Server Settings and Optimization Options
Scroll down to Use Remote YUI
Set this to Google
