    Timthumb (thumb.php) Security Flaw

    I posted a thread earlier about this very serious hazard.

    All my sites got hacked yesterday, so i did a lot of investigation. I managed to close the backdoor and got rid of the nasty infection.

    Why do we not hear about this from AppThemes? They still did not update the timthumb.php file in there themes. This is really bad.

    WooThemes reported about this security risk on the 4th of August. And also Wordpress warned people who use timthumb.

    Timthumb (thumb.php) Security Flaw @ WooThemes

    People, update your timthumb.php to the latest version!

    If you are already infected, delete all you .htaccess files, replace with authentic one and install and activate the BulletProof Security plugin

    Now scan your site on Sucuri - Monitor & Scanner dashboard to see if itīs clean.

    This must be related to this thread and so I have to close this one to minimize duplicates.
    Please help our moderating team work more efficiently by not sending us support questions via PM. You can read more about how AppThemes support works here. However, you can send a PM to follow up and remind me if I missed your support request/thread.

    Thank you and have a nice day.
