Hey I was just editing some files on my website and noticed a few files that include this thing called "Pre Installer Payload Script".  Is that something a hacker installed?


It starts out like this:

Code:
<?php
error_reporting
(0);
if (
$_GET['ping']) {
echo 'Pong';
exit;
}
@
ini_set('cgi.fix_pathinfo'1);
$upgrader = new Upgrade($_POST);
@
unlink(__FILE__);
exit;
/**
 * Pre Installer Payload Script
 *
 * This is called via curl. The settings are passed in the headers and the process is run
 * on the remote server.
 *
 * @subpackage Lib.assets
 *
 * @copyright SimpleScripts.com, 8 May, 2012
 * @author Oli Ikeme
 **/

/**
 * Define DocBlock
 **/

class Upgrade {

/**
 * Debug Storage
 *
 * @var array $debug
 */
public $debug = array();

/**
 * Settings
 *
 * @var array $settings
 */
public $settings = array(
//'ss_site_url' => null,
//'ss_dbhost' => 'localhost',
//'ss_dbname' => null,
//'ss_dbpass' => null,
//'install_directory' => null,
//'filename' => null,

Well, could be - if so, they are a disciplined hacker because  they've commented their code.

I don't think so, but if *I* were doing it, it'd probably look like that to complete the cloak Wink
