    Weird code in my webpage..

    I dont what is going on here..some kind of weird hijacking or something..
    one of my webpages, this one:

    http://gold.mylargescale.com/scottyc...ens/Page5.html

    has all kinds of code in it that I didnt put there!

    look at the source, and search for "yimg"..lots of code like:
    //l.yimg.com/a/lib/uh/js/uh_utils- (I didnt post the whole url, on purpose)

    I know its javascript,
    and it looks like yimg.com is yahoo messenger..
    (or something to do with yahoo)
    I tried deleting it all, re-uploaded the page, and it all came back..
    how can this get added into my code?
    and how can I get rid of it??
    anyone have any ideas?

    I started that page from scratch, as an empty HTML document..
    I never added any javascript into it myself..
    I have no idea how all this yahoo messenger junk got in there..

    (I do have one embedded youtube video..could it be coming from that?)

    thanks,
    Scot

    Its a hacker. Not sure how to fix it though. Did you try to create a new page exactly like the old one was instead of trying to fix that one and just remove all the links to it? (I would wait for more advice though)

    Have you tried uploading your source documents to the server again? If the code comes back, it may be inserted by the webhost automatically when the page is retrieved. I doubt anyone would bother to hack you individually - there is the possibility of a virus of some sort getting to the server though. It also seems unlikely that this is a malicious exploit, as yimg.com is a legitimate Yahoo server:

    If you don't own your own domain who knows what the server company may feel entitled to stick on your site. That's why I have an account with hostultra. I don't know if you're interested in going that route where you can control everything but, it's the cheapest I know of but still very good with tons of site add-on "server technology" stuff I don't have a clue how to use though I could, should I bother to learn.

    Its definitely not being inserted by my webhost..I know that for a fact.
    and its not being inserted by me..

    I guess its nothing malicious..I just cant figure out how its getting there!
    I suspect it might be youtube..
    very strange..

    thanks,
    Scot

    This happened to me on my site. Somebody inserted their malicious code in my website. I had the original "clean" file, so I simply reuploaded the good version.

    How do you upload your pages to your host? ftp/sftp? If you can use the same method to look at and retrieve the contents of your page, does the weird code appear there as well?
    I don't see references to any scripts or executables that don't originate from Yahoo! or YouTube. There are a few JavaScript snippets that seem to be logging the amount of time the page is displayed on the user's screen. By the wording of the variables used, it might be an ad banner script.

    im 90% sure its the embedded youtube video..

    I just took out ALL the javascript code, plus the embedded youtube..
    re-uploaded..its staying clean..

    now I will (tomorrow) just add a link to the youtube video, rather than embed it, and see fi the code stays clean..

    thanks,
    Scot
