Its goal apparently is to redirect visitor browsers to a site that attempts all the latest breach hacks so their computer can be further compromised.

Scan your files (and perhaps database) for “visitorTracker_isMob”

grep -r "visitorTracker_isMob" *

or perhaps more specifically only .js files

grep "visitorTracker_isMob" -ri --include \*.js
