    A Chinese website keeps inserting a malware script into the footer.php of the active theme at our website: http://www.sophisticatesblackhairstyles.com/

    Does anyone know of any way to prevent this from happening again? Is there anything that I can do? This has already happened 4 times.

    Please help.

    1) check the logs and see how they are doing this
    2) Which theme are you using? Is it from a known provider or any unknown theme provider? Try changing the theme
    3) Try to revoke the permissions..

    General advice:

    If this keep on happening, you might want to contact your hosting provider. Just because your site has been hacked doesn't mean that your site is the problem. A server is only as strong as it's weakest point and that weak point could be anywhere on the server.

    Looks like you fixed it, I just went over your HTML and did not see anything fishy...

    What was the cure?
