Question How do I get sure I'm not being hacked?

Hi, I'm not sure if this is the correct subforum, feel free to move it if it's not.

I've been contacted by an agent from ztmc.com, this guy offered me $50.00 USD in advance each month for introducing text ads in our vb board. When I accepted, he sent me not a HTTP code as I though he would, but some php and xml files and I'd like to be sure those files are completely safe:

The instructions:

* Upload the empty file named ad_network_ads_405.txt set the web server to have write permissions to this file. An easy way to set the permissions would be with the following command:

chmod 666 ad_network_ads_265.txt

* Upload ad_network_405.php (note both files should be uploaded to the root of the forums)
* In the Styles/Templates section of the Admin section, edit the SHOWTHREAD_SHOWPOST, printthread and footer templates, and add the following to it (somewhere appropriate):

footer:
$ad_network


# Import product-advertising_links.xml under AdminCP -> Plugin System -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
The xml file:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The php file:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If you find anything suspicious or find them clean I'd really appreciate your opinion as I don't understand a bit of php or xml programming.


Thank you!
