A few weeks ago I noticed that some of my wordpress blogs said that I was using version 2.5. Odd … I haven’t upgraded to the newest version of WordPress yet and the blogs that said I was using 2.5 weren’t even upgraded to 2.33 yet either.
I think I’ve finally figured out what happened. On April 10th I must have been hit by a bug … maybe through my FTP program or by visiting someones website. Several files in each of my blogs (those that say version 2.5 and all the rest) have a line of code in them that wasn’t there before.
So the last few days have been spent going over each file, and all the files on my CMS run website as well as another website to remove the added code. I’m almost done repairing the files. Unfortunately the blogs that say they are using the highest version of WP still say that even though I’ve cleaned all the files.
Another thing that I’ve come to realize this past few days is that I need more ram in my laptop as I’ve had tons of windows open in my browser as well as several programs running at once as I’ve searched out the affected files on my sites and the computer just gets slower and slower.
I know how to upgrade a desktop computer but I’ve never upgraded a laptop. This should be fun!
Anyone else find odd lines of code at the top of their WP files – even theme files – in the last while? Maybe there’s a new bug going around. Whatever it is my antivirus program didn’t catch it!
