Project Description

Hi All,

Here is the logic that I need:

I'm not a perl or bash script expert, so my syntax is not correct.

We have a server that has been hacked and was injected with lines like:

<iframe frameborderMODIFIED="0" onlMODIFIEDoad="if (![url removed, login to view]){ this.src='[url removed, login to view]'; this.height='0'; this.width='0';}"


(I injected the word MODIFIED so that no harm will be caused to anyone surfing here).

Running: grep -lr ":8080" * > [url removed, login to view]

Captures the list of all the infected files.

To MANUALLY clean each file I use the following [url removed, login to view] file:

for example:

./[url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view]

server #less [url removed, login to view]

#!/usr/bin/perl -i

undef $/;

$_ = <>;

s/<iframe frameborder.*?iframe>//msg ;

print "$_";

Now, this is doing the work for a Single file.

However, I have hundreds of files that need to be sanitized, so I want to run the [url removed, login to view] on every file that is in the [url removed, login to view]

I tried to run the following logic, but I'm not a good bash/perl developer, so this is where I need your assistance in creating the right loop that will run correctly:

#!/usr/bin/perl -i

grep -lr ":8080" * > [url removed, login to view]

open (FILE, "<listofbadfiles.txt>") or die "Can't open file!";

while (<FILE>)


undef $/;

$_ = <>;

s/<iframe frameborder.*?iframe>//msg ;

print "$_";


This is a short script/project, probably a 5 minutes script.

When you bid,. please make sure you know Perl and Bash scripting.

I want to be able to run:

./[url removed, login to view]

and have the script grep recursivly all the files in the directory and below, and then process them accordingly.

Very simple,. very short.

Good luck and Happy bidding.
