First Release: PhotoRec Sorter

Platform: Windows (NT/2K/XP/VISTA) (9x Untested)

I regularly use PhotoRec to retrieve files from inaccessible file systems for customers, and to make sorting through the rescued files a bit easier I usually organized them by file type (.exe, .pdf, .doc. etc.)Normally I do this with Cygwin and the find command ( find ./ -name *.pdf -exec mv -v {} ./PDF/ ; ) but I end up having to make directories for each file type extension and run the command once for each file type. I started to right a bash script to speed up the process then realized that AuoItv3 would be much more appropriate and put together this script + stand-alone executable.

TAC v1.0 Released

TAC (Theme Authentication Checker) v1.0, our new WP Plugin, has just been released on WordPress.org by us, the builtBackwards Team.

TAC stands for Theme Authentication Checker. Currently, TAC searches the source files of every installed theme for signs of malicious code. If such code is found, TAC displays the path to the theme file, the line number, and a small snippet of the suspect code.

This plugin got its start when we repeatedly found obfuscated malicious code in free WordPress themes available throughout the web. A quick way to scan a theme for undesirable code was needed, so we put together this plugin.

Try it out and let us know what you think!
