Lets say for **** and giggles you came across a website and you liked the layout. So you right click in your browser, view source and there is the content. So, you open a text editor and edit/modify the code and then decide to upload it on a free service. I was just curious what it meant and can you get infected or spread malware around by visiting the site? I checked the source code which seems very basic nothing hard. Anyways, thanks for the reply. PS; you know anything about getting incoming faxes to display on the computer before they are get printed. It's in regard to another thread on the front page.
So your saying that you put the scipt into your source code on purpose? Off-course if can be removed, you obviously have read/write permissions on the account so off-course you are able to edit the file to remove the .js from your file/s
In most cases it's the person's FTP details that have been snipped that allows these malware authors to plant there goodies onto unsecured webservers or by adding code to your source code to either serve the malware directly from your site or have it encoded and served remotely..
