WP and Joomla Themes warning

Posted on

Guys, if you use WordPress and download your own themes, please be aware that some unscrupulous activity is going on in some “free” themes that you should be aware of. It would be good to check your themes just in case. For more information, please read this post.

If you have shell access, go to the root http installation and issue the following command to see if you have any of the affected themes:

grep -R templatesbrowser *

This will only look for the occurance of the word “templatesbrowser” in any of your files within the directory structure you are searching through. It’s not everything, but it’s a good start.

He’s not off the hook yet
