Wow... now I'm wondering if I even want to keep running these sites!
As for the php, is it really THAT dangerous? The code I wrote doesn't rely on forms or anything fancy (to me) like that. On page, I just did it so that, as I added images to a directory, they were automatically added to the page. On the other page, I did it so that I could just keep a list of the other pages which generates the links needed since I was adding so many pages at the time.
If I were to post the code for one (it's short) could you tell me if it is a security issue?
And you are right... I am not a professional coder. I just learned what I needed to know to write the page and that was all.
Maybe I''ll leave the search function off then if that could be an issue. That is the only other code I would install outside of WordPress and I didn't/wouldn't install any addons to that.
I ran iftop on my desktop system, also connected to the subnet and I do see traffic that I don't think should be there - just not with any significant volume. Other than that, how can I tell what's going on?
I just ran nmap on my DSL modem and came back with this:
Ports 1863, 5050, 5190 and 50000 shouldn't be open, I wouldn't think. And interestingly, ports that I DID open (for a security camera system) 7777, 8181, 9000 and 8888 don't show up on that list. If these are not opened in the Pinholes section of the modem, how do I close them? I removed the camera ports for right now, btw.
