Google flags PHP.net as website with malware (update: fixed)

Posted at 24 October 2013 10:18 CEST by Jan Willem Aldershoff

Google flagged the website of the open source scripting language PHP.net as containing malware. The website is used by developers all over the world to download the PHP software and to look up functions of the language. PHP is used by millions of websites, like ours, to make the site more dynamic by including e.g. data from a database and displaying content under specific conditions.

Users that try to visit get a warning from Google that won’t allow them to go further. According to the webmaster Hannes Magnusson, the culprit is a Javascript file  dealing with user preferences. Google has a report stating what the status of the site is and what’s wrong. According to the report the search engine found four pages containing downloads of software without the permission of the user.

More specifically Google reports four trojans coming from 4 different domains, including cobbcountybankruptcylawyer.com, stephaniemari.com and northgadui.com.

Magnusson is trying to contact Google to get the issue resolved. Vote this up on Reddit to spread the word. Developers looking for documentation can use the website Devdocs.io.

Update: the issue is fixed now, Google no longer marks the site as harmful.
