Unwanted param is appended to URLs

Post by canardesign » Mon Feb 09, 2015 8:13 am

Hi ! I'm trying to help somebody with his jommla 1.5 website and I have the following problem: strange parameters being added to every url for example like this on first page load.

Code: Select all

.../ecovolontariat/definition?9a4dc79eff997f716e5f50162c2fb4df=e6a25ccadbd6c1039fea763c689f099a
where actual url is

Code: Select all

.../ecovolontariat/definition
After you navigate once it disappear. SEF is enabled, I suspect Google analytics /and/or Adwords. Any ideas ?

If you are still running Joomla 1.5, some of the old extensions may have vulnerabilities and the site may have been hacked.

Even though Joomla 1.5 is no longer supported, there is still a security forum and you should read the sticky notices at the top, follow the instructions and post the output from the Forum Post Assistant (FPA) into a new topic: http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f=432&t=475313
