Server :: Remove Dynamic String Across Multiple Lines And Files?

May 13, 2011

My server was hit with an injection script which has placed code across many of my clients files. I need a script that can remove a block of php code that spans multiple lines, multiple directories/files and is dynamic, meaning that part of the code changes. I think using find/sed is what I need but cannot seem to figure out how to get it to work.The following is the script that is being injected everywhere. The catch is that they have generated dynamic code at the start/end of the script. (I have commented the parts that are dynamically changing on EVERY instance).PLEASE NOTE: Directly following this script is the start of a valid php script that I do not want to delete.

<?php
//{{65281980 - DYNAMIC!!
GLOBAL $alreadyxxx;

General :: String Replace In Filenames - Files Already Contain The String "Soundtrack"

Jun 11, 2011

Moving right along, I have a folder of MP3 files containing various Movie sound tracks and scores. I'm using Audio Tag Tool to tag all the files at once with an "Artist" of "Soundtrack", and to inherit the "Title" tag from the file name. After that, I will rename all the files (Using Audio Tag Tool -- awesome program, btw) with the format "<Artist> - <Title>.mp3"

The problem, is many of my files already contain the string "Soundtrack", which would be redundant. I happen to be a perfectionist, so I'm unable to ignore it and move on. Hence my question to you fine folk: I want to delete all instances of "soundtrack" (-i case irrelevant) in the filenames before I go through the above steps. But, its not quite that simple. This is a sample of some of the file names:

General :: Sed Remove String Until Final Match?

Mar 20, 2010

I have been fighting with a sed statement trying to get it to remove everything in a string until the last match and have been failing badly. how to get this to work..

sed --> enterprises.9.9.171.1.5.2.1.1.5
returns 5

I want sed to strip everything out until the last period. The final digit can and will change. Some parts before the final period can change as well, since enterprises will sometimes also be represented as more numbers and periods.

General :: Using Find With File Name And Mtime To Remove Files Gets Arg List Too Long Error?

Dec 25, 2009

I need to delete all *.trc files that are older than 30 days and I am getting a "Argument list too long" error. There are other files that should not be deleted which is why I am using the "*.trc" and newer files need to be kept as well. I have seen other postings but they do not cover both of the conditions. Below are 2 of the many attempts at doing this but I cannot get this to work.

find *.trc -mtime +31 -print| xargs rm -f {}
find *.trc -mtime +31 -print -exec rm -f {} ;

General :: Selectively Remove Blank Spaces From String?

Oct 7, 2009

need all spaces between two letters or a letter and a number exchanged for an underscore, but all spaces between a letter and other characters need to remain. One example for clarity:

Input:

force -- lamin 90 [label]
active A -- generation [label]

needed Output:

force -- lamin_90 [label]
active_A -- generation [label]

I tried solving this with sed but obviously s/ /_/g does not work, nor does any s/[a-zA-z0-9] [a-zA-z0-9]/[a-zA-z0-9]_[a-zA-z0-9]/g , because you just can't do this...

following can be used to locate files that contain the contents 'SomeString' or 'SomeOtherString':

Code:

How would I limit this to searching for the text 'SomeString' or 'SomeOtherString', but only if the file has extension .php, .inc or .js? Also - what piping to xargs does here? I don't understand how this command actually works.
