I recently setup a personal web server on a WIN XP machine with WAMP server version 2.1 and Magento version 1.7. Immediately my site started to perform 302 redirects to http://www.darlinginteractive.com whenever I hit the IP from either inside or outside my network. This is obviously a malicious hack as I set nothing up to redirect to this URL. Whenever I access my site IP plus a reference to a page that doesn’t exist I still get the same redirect result.
I’ve read several sites advice for finding and fixing malicious redirect hacks but have not been able to find the code causing this. I deleted all data from my sites root .htaccess file and still have the issue. I reinstalled a fresh version of index.php and still have the issue. The only way I’ve been able to get it to stop redirecting is by deleting all data on index.php. Then when accessed the site comes up with a blank page as expected. I ran a script to check all website files for base64 code and found quite a few files with some. The problem is I can’t distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate Magento base64 code.
Thanks in advance for any help with this.
