I more or less know basic programming, gradually becoming an intermediate programmer now. Still make some dumb logical jumps.

comment Trying to decode a virus
My guess is that the original vector was compromised code on one of the other sites (owned by someone else) that was on the shared server. I've also installed some Project Honeypot blacklist software in case any other malicious code is hanging out somewhere waiting to be executed in my codebase.

I actually think the infection may have happened a year or so ago when I was still on shared hosting, and has only shown symptoms since I moved to a VPS with my own mail server.

comment Virus Code discovered by my Antivirus on an SO question
I posted that initial question - it's a code block, as another commenter says, and an attempt to figure out how my system was infected. It isn't malicious at all.

That is interesting. Thank you. Do you know anywhere else I can find information about it/anywhere else it may have infected?

It's a Drupal install. I can't think of a specific place that users can upload files, but I'll double check and disable any such functionality for the time being.

comment How to process form in template when you aren't printing the entire form
I absolutely agree. However I was given legacy code, asked to update it and the client doesn't have the budget to redo everything the completely correct way. I'm replacing a template with custom form inputs, so this is a step forward.

I am not sure. That is why I posted the maillog.

comment Restrict email accounts that can send email
postfix.org/postconf.5.html#smtpd_sender_restrictions Appears to possibly be a way to a solution to this specific question. I'll post an answer if I figure it out.

comment Restrict email accounts that can send email
I've disabled my web server from sending emails (using authorized_submit_users) but that's not a long-term workable solution for me.
