WordPress is an incredibly powerful and flexible content management system used by millions of websites. However, with great power comes great responsibility – you need to be vigilant about security to keep your site safe from hackers.
A recent post by Wordfence highlighted some common techniques used by hackers to obfuscate malicious PHP code and evade detection. These include things like:
- Commenting out code
- String concatenation
- Manipulating string indexes
- Mathematical operations
- Reversing strings
- Using dynamic functions
- GOTO statements
- Including non-PHP files
The goal is to conceal the true intent of the code so it can infect your site undetected by security scanners. The permutations are nearly endless, making it extremely difficult to analyze and block all malicious code.
