2.5.27 hacked, MW:SPAM:SEO

Post by lexierowsell » Sat Nov 15, 2014 2:47 pm

FPA does not work for me-- seems to start, then lags out and just sits on the initial screen.

I have run JAMSS, and have multiple results. Are the ones that are not noted as potential false positives definite results?

I have restored from back ups as old as early September (when there were no apparent issues...) only to see the junk come back.

Please advise re: FPA, I would love to share the info you need!

Yep the fpa appears to hang with some newer versions of php ... try refreshing the page a few times.

Don't forget to action the rest of http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f=621&t=582854
