search and remove specific content in files.


f above command gives you correct output, execute following command to perform actual cleaning:


grep -lr --include=*.php "eval(base64_decode" /path/to/webroot | xargs sed -i.bak 's/<?php eval(base64_decode[^;]*;/<?php\n/g'


Executing above will remove eval(*) codes.  Above command will also generate a backup version of files it will modify. For example, if it removes code from index.php, you will find a new file index.php.bak in same directory with original content of index.php


Missing <?php tag in the beginning:
To add “<?php: tag in the beginning of index.php files, in case if you remove it accidentally use following command:

find /var/www/ -name "index.php" | grep "/htdocs/index.php" | xargs grep -L "<?php" | xargs sed -i "1s/^/<?php \n/"

Don’t worry. If you already have a “<?php ” tag in the beginning, it won’t be added again.
Extra Newlines at the top!
If you find after cleanup, extra newlines at the top of your code, then use following command to remove trailing newlines. Extra newlines creates problem for blog feeds.

find . -name '*.php' -exec sed -i -e :a -e '/^\n*$/{$d;N;ba' -e '}' '{}' \;
