The code is definitely there, perhaps not before you upload it, but it
could be getting modified on the server.

Poking at the code, which I really wouldn't want to execute, suggests
that it is advertising. It might be malware.

I suggest that:

* If you don't run your own server

  1: Check with your host to see if they know about it

  2: If they don't tell you its advertising, then move server unless
     they fix it quickly.

     If they tell you its advertising, then consider moving server anyway.

* If you do run your own server then you should know about any
  advertising, so bring the machine down immediately and start a
  security analysis.
