I am having troubles with one of our magento 188.8.131.52 sites.
The client has access to the back-end for modification on the catalog, attributes and attributes family.
This person does not have access to ftp.
Last night the site went from functional and live to this error message.
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘<’ in /home/vitrine/public_html/index.php on line 66
A quick investigation to the file revieles this code from line 55 to 67
code here ---------------------
<!--c767135d0881386*************52--> (I have modified the masked numbers)
If I desactivate the last line with code <!c767............-->> The site appeares once again with what seems to be controle in the admin area, but pages and menus can not be accessed because the url is asking or searching for this link with the key in it.
The page seems to load to cash a link to
http.linkhelper-cn upload to zedu.com
see the result on this page at bottom left in firefox.
Texte in the store search field has misteriously disapeared.
I am not grasping the full picture as to has the client made a manipulation error? and not telling me or is the site under some type of exterior attack. Please indicate some kind of direction.
