website redirect to different site

Post by agapio » Sat Mar 04, 2017 8:28 am

Hi All,

Strange issue the website http://www.saintalbert .us was working fine and now when click on any menu battom
it redirect to https://www.warez.com

When check page source I see:

script type="text/javascript">
var wins = {};

document.addEventListener('click', function() {
var url = 'https://www.warez.com/';

if(typeof wins[url] === 'undefined')
wins[url] =window.open(url,'_blank')
})
</script>

So I trying to find where it is located
but when I grep in root directory grep -ir 'www.vestathemes.com'. * don;t find anything with string "www.warez.com"

Then I restore from backup tow months back filesystem and db vi cpanell and no luck.

Any suggestions where that script can be located then?

Regards,
Peter

lets see, you have /modules/mod_AutsonSlideShow
and also looking at the link the first search result says "Download thousands of free nulled premium wordpress themes and plugins from warez.com , direct downloads daily updates."
