This is a great thread on HN:

A site got hacked and the webmaster uploaded the full code from the hack:

The thread is great for two reasons:

1. Everyone is helping decipher what the files and code actually do.

2. I wish more sites would do this. Many people find it hard to talk about their sites getting hacked, but if more people share what happened, how they discovered and fix the security hole, and shared what the exploit did, we'd all learn more from it.

And yes, one of my sites was hacked many years ago. I hadn't kept up with my Wordpress updates and one day my RSS feed was selling viagra.
