After site was compromised.

So last week, maybe even before, my site was hacked into.  Someone changed the coding in my files making the site useless.  I contacted my service provider and they handled most of it.  All that was left was to reupload certain pages.

Most of the site works as it should, but what I'm not understanding is why I am getting syntax errors.  I checked and this is the original code that came with the program, and I didn't get these syntax errors before the hack, so why am I getting the now?

One other thing is that some of the buttons don't work, as in they will not open another url as they are supposed to.

I know that last time when I had these problems, you guys suggested I should just upgrade.  Do I really have to upgrade again, or is there a way to fix these without upgrading?

Do you have a backup of your site before the hack? If so you can uses files from your backup.

Also, do you know how your site was hacked?

All I have are year-old incomplete backups of the site.  Every time I tried to make a site backup through OCPortal, the process would always time out before completion.  The backups might have most of the files though.  Plus I checked the backup of COMMENTS_POSTING_FORM.tpl and it has the exact same script.  Something else must be wrong.

According to my service provider, it was a virus that was on my computer that allowed the other party to get into my site.  Passwords have already been changed, and I've already done two different thorough virus scans on my computer.  I haven't seen any new activity on the site, other than my own, so it must have worked.

Its recommend that you use the backup tools provided by your host (i.e. through cPanel). They are more efficient and more reliable.

That's weird. Can't see anything obvious there.

While that sucks for you, at least its not an ocPortal security flaw, so its good news for the rest of us.

Your picture shows that the choose button does not work, I assume it just does nothing? That could be a sign that there may be a firewall issue with your host.

See View topic: Unable to save files using code_editor.php - ocPortal.com to check if its the firewall. If so there are instruction you can pass on to your host that should fix it.
