In Topic: Hacked by someone in Eastern Europe

23 August 2007 - 02:51 PM

Idiot may have been a strong reaction - but the implication was that I had left the config.php at 777 - which any webmaster worth his/her salt would no better than that.

No one verified that this was the case- it was just assumed. That felt like an insult - and it didn't resolve anything.

My point has been that people in this forum ask for help and the answers are non-specific. One person asks about security, and he is told to read the security forum. That is the area he wrote the question in? He was obviously reading the security area.

The fact that the cart was hacked, and the config.php file was properly at 644, is an issue for me.

As to there being other causes on the server - that may be the case. But when I open the config.php file that was hacked, and it has the hackers signature all over it says to me that this is where the problem existed.

How he hacked a properly configured file is beyond me - so I was looking for some help here.

I am re-installing the cart - so the evidence is now gone.

Hopefully we can get over the hurt feelings and get down to the business of making this cart secure and therefore usable.

I think this is the best cart on the market for the price, and I don't want to see it get a bad rep.

One person suggests the my config.php is 777 and you all jump on the bandwagon saying what an idiot I am. When did anyone verify that this was the issue?

The config.php file was set at 644

Now, can someone deal with the real issues here?

In Topic: Setting product order

I did what is suggested here, the search and then product order, and it has not made any difference, the products still list in the order that they were placed in the cart.

Thanks for the offer.

I submitted it to the help desk and they fixed it. I don't know how yet, but I would like to know in case it comes up again.

I tried all that you suggested - replaced the tpl file (but I don't think this has anything to do with the tpl file, since I get a similar message on the front page related to a sidebox tpl file.

I had already adjusted permissions in the /var/ /images/ and the other directory someone suggested (my mind has gone blank.

Nothing has changed the situation that has been recommended in the forum.
