« on: February 17, 2014, 08:57:02 pm »

Hello, I have a lot of troubles in the past 2 weeks.All my websites using Coopermine got hacked and Google message me in their webmaster central. One of my sites is http://thedogbreed.com/ when you type site:http://thedogbreed.com/ in google and go to image search, they are a lot of images that i never been upload in my website and they are linking to different downloadable software websites. Google is blocking my websites into their image search engine.I really don't know how to prevent my websites from been hacked in this way. Please for some help!

Currently you seem to be running CPG1.5.20 while the latest version is CPG1.5.28. One of the most important things to keep you from getting hacked is to keep any software on your server up to date just like you would your own PC's operating system. If you have been hacked already either restore from an earlier backup then update or if that is not possible you would need to update then carefully go through all your files to see any that have bee targeted along with checking all user accounts in your database.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Apologies, that was a typo due to a fat fingers/ipad interface issue.

The whole request doesn't make sense in my opinion.

You ask us to
type site:http://thedogbreed.com/ in google and go to image search

But you also say
Google is blocking my websites into their image search engine

Somehow you still get
a lot of images [..] are linking to different downloadable software websites.

If you search for pictures on your website, why should Google redirect you to other websites?


I really don't know how to prevent my websites from been hacked in this way.
From what you told us I cannot determine or reproduce what exactly happened. I'm not sure if your website was really hacked, maybe it's also a misconfiguration of Coppermine if someone else is allowed to upload pictures.
