    Default How the hell did someone take over every single one of my cloaked pages in google??!!

    Okay this is a question for all the master cloakers out there. I have a test domain that I was using a cloaking script that Ive had for ages, alot of you probably remember searchenginecloaker script from Peter. Anyways Ive messing around just trying some different things and making all my pages static, after a month I already had 23,000 pages indexed. Today I start clicking on some from within a google search and my antivirus starts going crazy, not just on a few it looks like its every single one of them, and it has someone elses content in my pages? I know the script isnt supported any longer but Ive never seen anything quite like this. Anyone else have any experience with this? Or maybe can point me to another script that is supported and was easy to use like searchenginecloaker script?


    Thanks!

    The most likely explanations are that someone hacked into your website(s) or got at things from the host's server. The other explanation might be that they got to the control panel if you were using the central administration.

    You can use wpCloaker for non-Wordpress sites but by default wpCloaker doesn't have a page generator built in since these are plentiful in the Wordpress days. For non-Wordpress sites you could use Peter's InstantOptimizer or MarkovEngine (which last I checked are still working) or dig up old-school TE-like generators like rssgm and nichecreator.

    Good answer from qcp860.

    @ OP,, where did you get your copy of searchenginecloaker?
    If not from the original source then most likely you obtained a "shared" copy containing a trojan.
    And THAT person hijacked all of your pages.

    Agree, either you account was cracked or the script contain some nasty codes that allow them to control your pages.

    No its not a pirated version, I was one of the original guys to purchase the script from Peter when it went on sale. I know its not supported anymore which is a shame cause it used to be a great script. Wish someone else would come back out with something like it.

    Probably hacked, you should think of everyone who had access to it.

    Are you on the Wordpress CMS? Recently picked this up and it's helped me detect weak spots, spot breaches and abnormal files. Was really excited to find it and it's helped me a lot.:

    I couldn´t help thinking of the obvius reason for the problem: has your domain expired? Then another have bought it to get the traffic still coming from google for a while?

    This is why you don't use a script if you don't understand what it does

    The script sounds like a likely culprit but one other possibility is that your main machine is infected with a key logger. Suggest a few AV scan with malwarebytes.

    I completely agree! Your relying too much on the script writer .. you never know what malicious coding is added.. a good way to know if your site got hack is to check the files by time of when it was last modified in ftp.. and if you notice a weird time or date .. i.e 3 am or a time you don't usually work.. then you know that your site got hacked.. wish you the best!
