So here I am with a brand new site (my 7th made with magento), hosted on a reputable hosting company. All of 2 days since the install when , WHAM, all of a sudden the whole site is redirected to whatsfly[dot]com. So, I freak out. FREAK....
The computers I use have multiple antiviruses running, and run periodic deep scans (had a virus try to steal ft passwords once), so I’m pretty sure it’s not a virus on my end.
So I check through the site, and can NOT find any files that have been changed.
To play it safe, I delete THE ENTIRE SITE.... everything, files database, .htaccess files… it’s a bare account. even change the passwords.
I reload everything from scratch. The magento, the database, the template (from template monster)… all is working well for a day, and
WHAM… it happens again.
I do a database search, and notice it’s in the cache… I delete the cache files and it’s gone.
Looking in the logs, I see references to “Morfeus F**king Scanner” , which I’m guessing isn’t good.
Does anyone have ANY idea what caused this?
and/or how to protect against it happening again?
