That... DaryIt...

Runs the javascript called "tincapp.js" located in the directory "script" which is intern located within the folder "common" followed by "tinc" and then all of that is located within the "spicons" directory.

What the script does however is a mystery because you have not supplied us with enough information. What is the full URL of the website which this file is hosted on?

I am not sure where the code has come from, especially as I do not have a directory names like that on my website, or a file with that name.

Think I might try deleting it from my page and see what happens!

Well... if there are really know directories on your website with those names then you really shouldn't have any problems deleting the code...

Could it be?

SQL Injection Virus
[webmasterworld.com...]

Sure sounds like it. And if it is, you'll need to get the host involved as your db is now infected.

Have you previously been hosted by 1and1? They have this package which powers live chat for their customers. (Communication tools > Chat) from the control panel.

Hmmm, what is that? A search in Google for tincapp.js turns up a couple hundred results and almost every single one of them starts with vti_. That's a FrontPage directory. The vti stands for Vermeer Technologies Inc, the original creator of FrontPage. These usually appear when FP Extensions are installed.

All of the pages that reference that file are broken.
