I assume that you are wrong in your assumption.
If you run into a problem it's good to warn people of course but I'm not sure why a couple people are blaming the uploader...
Guys, it's clearly stolen software. You have to do your own due diligence with that shit.
I'm not sure what that even is but the Mods do a lot of things that others don't see in public.
Assuming he is intentionally posting freebies with malware is a tad out of line, especially because I have personally downloaded his stuff and checked it out.
Hang around a little bit longer and get to know the crowd before throwing shade.
you really dont know ?
read the thread title and the Original post
Yeah I only assumed because of his reply. It's quite rude to not even apologize or address the issue.
It's also quite rude to call someone out on the carpet when you are merely a bystander and have zero facts.
Wow Good News InnovativeSEO Came Back is This Just a co-incident OP Started a Thread Belonging To InnovativeSEO And He Came Back Suddenly To Justify
Appreciate the comment @BassTrackerBoats.
I wasn't ignoring this at all. I have a full schedule this week so I really couldn't take the time earlier to respond accordingly.
This is fake news to say the least.
I have every intention of addressing the comments, the opinions and the plain ignorance OP conflates as "evidence" in proving my guilt.
@Asif WILSON Khan I trust you and respect your judgment in situations like this. I would have brought this to your attention prior to now had I known this post or concern even existed.
no disrespect to the seriousness of the situation but its like reading a legal thriller novel.
TBH, I forgot all about this thread, I tagged you in an earlier post, OP seemed a little vague and you hadn't been on for a considerable length of time, figured OP was possibly mistaken. I am pretty sure you would have not knowingly shared anything malicious.
You are the one who act dumb here, Why did you even tough that
Its a good idea to seek for free themes? you know people are making those,
For a living, its their bread, a hundred for a theme is a fair price,
Considering you are planing to make some money with that.
Do you think its ethical using something without paying?
You learned the lesson, this thing done some harm to your site,
I don't really know what bad could happen besides losing some sensitive info, (NOT CONFIRMED)
But next time you'll know that seeking a free way/easy way has its own consequences,
You are the one who took the decision and installed, @InnovativeSEO has nothing to apologize for
I didn't saw anything in the thread about that issue, can it be something else you'v installed some other free stuff you found online?
Can you provide the malicious code? that your host were talking about? anything besides accusations?
Thread since Jun 13, 2015 not relevant for today's standards?
As @SlickSocials mentioned @InnovativeSEO posted that theme on June 18th 2015
An outdated theme is almost as dangerous as a nulled theme. There would have been security updates since then.
Also the theme could have been infected by several different ways.
Never use a theme on a money site that you have not purchased or doesn't come with support.
I never use themes downloaded from non-official sources, its very easy to hide bad code in them and extremely hard to find all places where it is, its just not worth it. I think in many cases, hiding some bad stuff inside those themes is the only reason some people share them, than comes someone who re-shares it, even with good intention on such places as BHW, where you do not expect it and you are fuc.. I cannot count how many hours I have spend cleaning my sites after hacker attacks and even I know that not always they got into my server with this method, sometimes it was because not updated wordpress,themes, maybe even plugins? or because i stored my ftp password inside my ftp client, thse themes are i think still one of the easiest way for hackers.
In short: Op is full of shit and shoots his gun without a grain of evidence. There is only like a billion and one ways, you could have gotten infected and the code placed, a billion of those options have nothing to do with IS.
The OP is the one who should apologize here for attempting to ruin the name of IS without evidence.
Accusations like this happen to often on BHW, there should be a rule against this kind of defamation threads.
Thank you for sharing your perspective here. I agree with you and you happen to be correct as well. I will address my purpose in sharing here and why I am a trusted source,so keep reading.
Personally I believe anything used for a "business" type purpose should be purchased. I support developers completely. It's a matter of integrity I feel. There's also the fact that a reputable website should operate as such.
This includes being current on security and updates as needed.
I offered these shares for a reason.
That reason is quite simple and true.
I support developers and invest myself accordingly.
I believe that people deserve an opportunity to develop their skills, their goals and their interests. You would be amazed at the countless people in low income countries that were afforded some ways to compete.
I can tell you a majority of the people that test themes legitimately buy them as well. Yes there will always be leeching and abuse, but that's not who I support at all. I would be willing to state that my shares here have been appreciated by many good members here that have in turn made the purchase after trying the share.
Though I'm only one of several good sources here, I'm certainly different than most. If anyone reads my intros, my comments or my posture, they will see a very consistent way I do what I do. I DESPISE hacked crap and malicious intentions being used by innocent people. I was a victim myself when I was a noob, it's not something I take lightly.
QUOTE="mickyfu, post: 9979026, member: 247149"]Yeah. Wish I'd made him wear a condom now.[/QUOTE]
What we shared was real @mickyfu Don't you DARE try and take that feeling from me now dammit!
True. Thank you
Sincerely appreciate your support @living2xl
If I were interested in making a name for myself as having infected "Over 55,000 people" I guess I could market myself from this accusation. However I don't care to as that's not who I am.
Defamation is a serious matter
OP I'm not angry with you, however I DO suggest that you educate yourself a bit further in situations such as these. Especially before making accusations that could potentially be damaging to others here.
It's not "cool" to let ignorance negatively affect another person's interests. I understand that you had issues with your WP installation, or for dramatic effect we can say you were "hacked." Truth be told you clearly received rather poor information that simply wasn't true.
Another example from the source
Had I known, and been around I could have helped you. I would have helped you too. Iam familiar with hosting issues and how to resolve them. You can verify with 2 reputable hosting providers here that in my years and various accounts this has never been something I do. @littlewebdragon and @ugjunk for starters should do.
As for me I consider this topic to be done with.
If I can assist you with anything just let me know.
I never considered this to be a topic I ignored, nor will I ignore it moving forward like everyone here. I know my actions and intentions are legit, however I'm not above the rules and expectations here at all. I appreciate the support as well as the concerns. My absence also didn't help this at all.
Please take note there's a moral standard here on BHW, whether you believe that to be true is not my concern. In spite of the name and common misinterpretations, there's thousands of very successful people here. You don't know me, so consider that before you accuse. My reputation and my word matter to me, and nothing you have done will make that change. We all make mistakes, so consider that moving forward. Thank you all.
