Heads up: Piwik 1.9.2 downloads had backdoor payload

Recommended Posts

Anyone here installed Piwik 1.9.2 recently? If so, check your installation for a possible backdoor that it may have contained. The download server was compromised and a backdoor injected into the downloadable.

Background, including basic cleanup instructions, via the-H (includes links for more info).

Thanks for the heads up, out of interest, can anyone explain how they got Piwik running alongside PW, do you need to edit the htacccess file?

      I just finished the first release of my first PW module: Piwik Top Keywords:
      This module can be used to create a tag cloud based on the keywords that visitors use to find your site (referrer keywords). These keywords are fetched from your Piwik installation. For those that don't know Piwik, it's an open source alternative for Google Analytics, more info on http://piwik.org.
      The keywords are, as a query, linked to ProcessWire's search page.*
      The module can be configured from the admin area, but it's also possible to configure it in your template.
      In order to reduce the load on your Piwik installation and avoid delays when rendering your pages, it makes sense to use it on cache enabled templates only.
      I am sure that the code can be improved, since it is my first module and because of the fact that I am not an experienced PHP developer. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
      To Install:
      1. Download the file attached (PiwikTopKeywords.module) to this post and place in /site/modules/. Go to Modules in the admin, 'Check for new modules' and click install for Piwik Top Keywords under the Piwik section.
      2. Add the following to your CSS style sheet:
      #PiwikTagcloud {list-style-type:none; margin:0px; padding:0px; text-align: center;} #PiwikTagcloud li {display:inline !important; margin-right:15px; line-height:1.5em;} #PiwikTagcloud li a {display:inline; text-decoration: none;} #PiwikTagcloud a:hover {text-decoration: underline;} #PiwikTagcloud .smallest {font-size: 100%;} #PiwikTagcloud .small {font-size: 125%;} #PiwikTagcloud .medium {font-size:150%;} #PiwikTagcloud .large {font-size:170%;} #PiwikTagcloud .largest {font-size:200%;} To use:
      Add the following to your template:
      $PiwikTopKeywords = $modules->get("PiwikTopKeywords"); $PiwikTopKeywords->DisplayTopKeywords(); I also attached a screenshot of the output and a screenshot of the admin area:
      I'm not sure how many of you use Piwik and how many will use this module, but if it's helpful to anyone I am more than happy!
      * Edit: I just realised that is your site doesn't have a search page, you might want to link the keywords to a Google site-search. Simply use the following Search URL in the config:
