  2. Unfortunately, I cannot include your theme in our theme digest as your copy of thumb.php contains base64 encoded elements which present a security risk to our readers. Even if the encoded elements are safe, there is no reason to disguise code like this.

    Our thumb.php file is an unedited copy of the official TimThumb script here... http://code.google.com/p/timthumb/.

    Here is the actual file...
    http://timthumb.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/timthumb.php

    The base64 part is in there and reads:

    if(BLOCK_EXTERNAL_LEECHERS && array_key_exists('HTTP_REFERER', $_SERVER) && (! preg_match('/^https?:\/\/(?:www\.)?' . $this->myHost . '(?:$|\/)/i', $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']))){
    // base64 encoded red image that says 'no hotlinkers'
    // nothing to worry about! :)
    $imgData = base64_decode("R0lGODlhUAAMAIAAAP8AAP///yH5BAAHAP8ALAAAAABQAAwAAAJpjI+py+0Po5y0OgAMjjv01YUZ\nOGplhWXfNa6JCLnWkXplrcBmW+spbwvaVr/cDyg7IoFC2KbYVC2NQ5MQ4ZNao9Ynzjl9ScNYpneb\nDULB3RP6JuPuaGfuuV4fumf8PuvqFyhYtjdoeFgAADs=");
    header('Content-Type: image/gif');
    header('Content-Length: ' . sizeof($imgData));
    header('Cache-Control: no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, max-age=0');
    header("Pragma: no-cache");
    header('Expires: ' . gmdate ('D, d M Y H:i:s', time()));
    echo $imgData;
    return false;
    exit(0);
    }

    Any theme that has a current copy of TimThumb also has this.

  4. The mere inclusion of it (Timthumb or not) is pretty much against some of the recommended security practices, as end users who do not have the tools to decode it themselves won't know if it's benign (and therefore shouldn't be encoded anyway) or malicious.

    Since you're including the copy of the file (why change the name anyway?) you could consider decoding the value in the file, as there's still no reason to hide the code itself, but I actually recommend using WordPress's built-in resizing functions instead.

  5. Understand and totally agree.

    I removed the code from our included copy of TimThumb. http://designerthemes.com/demo/insomnia/wp-content/themes/insomnia/changelog.txt

    Also, added an issue comment to the TimThumb site... http://code.google.com/p/timthumb/issues/detail?id=237#c4

    Thanks

  8. Fantastic theme!

    One suggestion about the packaging, though. You may want to repack the zip file so that the individual theme files are contained within a folder named "insomnia," and then zip/compress that folder.

    The way it's set up presently, when the insomnia folder is unzipped, I get a group of files, but no main folder.
