Thanks for sharing this. I thought I was going crazy thinking it was gone and then seeing it live again and again.

I wonder if the developer shouldn't be banned outright from wordpress.org. They're just going to take up more of the review team's limited time as they try to sneak exploits in repeatedly.


Yeah, this malicious code has managed to get into my www.aussiewritingreviews.com/ website and it's not looking good for me. I need a permanent fix of it soon. Someone, deliver that to me.
