Ok, so HKJ is putting ads on BLF with out Mr. Admin's permission. Are we sure that it is him and no one else? (Don't want to start a witch hunt unless we're sure)
My LED comparison thread with links.
Tint, Binning, and CRI Explanation (For the XM-L)
Li-ion Battery Safety and Shopping Guide
Absolutely not sure. don’t have access to the BLF database
That said, I have not found any examples that were not HKJ.
I am currently extremely busy with work. Please do not expect a response from me quickly. I will be dropping in as time permits, but the amount of time I can dedicate to responding to topics and PMs is very limited.
Ok, let's wait for sb to chime in on this issue.
Hmm, thanks for the letting me know. I’ll check into this.
Budget Light Forum ...where Frugal meets with Flashlight!
Foxlingo ad showing on my phone (opera mobile) too on both pages.
obviously, replacing [PostContentTable] with the table name that holds the actual posts and [POST_TEXT] with the column that holds the text of the posts
running linux using chrome, i got it on the links pptk posted also
-the- Throw calculator - Pulsars list
It’s not just HKJ. Also shows up in Viffer750’s post from this link
Looking for a connection…
If you click this:
and disable rich-text, you can see it.
I strongly suspect that those ads were injected into the users’ posts without their knowledge by the Foxlingo toolbar. I’ll check into it some more.
You're right, my guess is it is a "virus" of some sort that is doing it since it is more than one person.
Edit: Sb beat me to it. I'll throw out this link, where people were having trouble with foxlingo crashing things etc.
I was just about to say the same thing. Looks like it’s not their ‘fault’. They’re just lax in system security, and are being taken advantage of by the FoxLingo toolbar…
Just gonna put it out there that I hate browser toolbars or any other “force it down your throat” crap that comes with the program you’re trying to install.
I DON’T WANT IT!
Likely you guys are right on this one.
Thanks very mich PPtk. For a website admin I am shockingly ignorant about SQL queries.
Could you please help me with a query in the comments table to replace all occurences of example.com with example.com? I want to disable all of those ads by editing the link to their adserver, but I still want to leave the evidence for later investigation.
UPDATE [COMMENTS_TABLE] SET [COMMENT_TEXT]=REPLACE([COMMENT_TEXT], 'example.com', 'example.com') WHERE [COMMENT_TEXT] LIKE '%example.com%'
Again, replace [COMMENTS_TABLE] with the table name and [COMMENT_TEXT] with the column name where the actual post text is located.
Don’t Do It! Its not showing up correctly! Don’t Do what I Just said… Standby.
No worries, I didn’t run anything yet. What isn’t showing up correctly?
There is “stuff” after the word REPLACE that isn’t showing up..
And you’ll see it in the quote.. Just grab it from there and run it.
Ah, I see. Nice catch. You can enclose code segments in marks like this@ so the filter system doesn’t modify it.
But your @ marks didn't show up there.
Gotcha. I’m not use to Drupal. I tried enclosing it in [CODE] and [/CODE] tags, which didn’t work..
I updated the original post so that it’s correct for historical reference.
But @@ works.. kinda. Didnt quite work on the admins post scaru quoted.
The thing is, many of our users like to do beamshots with mouseover comparisons, which would also be eliminated.
Oh, in that case (I use them to) maybe just block "foxlingo" to atleast stop these ads.
Looks like you did the update to example.com… How long did that update query take to run? How many records modified? Just curious..
Worked great, thanks! 25 records were modified.
So, after the two affected users are notified, I would like to remove the whole script. How can I do that with an SQL query? I’m sure many of those characters need to be escaped somehow. Here’s the original offending code: http://pastebin.com/FGNr0dZH
Thanks a ton for the technical support PilotPTK!
My pleasure sb,
Removing the entire offending code is a little more complex. I’d have to see exactly how it looks in the actual SQL return.
If it’s pointing to example.com now, it’s really pretty harmless.. I’m not sure I’d even waste the time cleaning up those 25 posts..
Whats more interesting to me is that you have 15 BLF tabs open :bigsmile:
Wow, 15 BLF tabs open.. So YOURE the reason I keep getting the DRUPAL error…
LMAO! Very disturbing indeed!
