    Hi for some reason my admin page shows as a very long lists of items, line by line like html pages 15 years ago! It looks like it has the same contents as always but line after line without its standard look and formating.
    Where can I look to see if can be corrected?
    I'm using the spanish language version. I could use the English if that sorts it out! but I have no idea about what causes this or how to revert to its olg looks and functionality.
    Thanks

    Have you tried re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress? You may have some damaged/missing files/

    Hi Esmi,
    Thanks a lot. I did but I'm going to try again just in case I made any mistakes.

    Hi esmi,
    I just noticed there is base 64 code all over! Again!!
    I did a fresh reinstall after an attack about 8-9 months ago and everything was fine untill recently. If you are there (and can and want to answer) have they been new attacks lately on new upgrades 3.0 3.0.1?
    I did a completly fresh install!!!! and used all the preventive plugins recommended! I can't believe it!

    There are no known hacks that are specific to WP 3.0 or 3.0.1 but it may have come from elsewhere on the server. All I can suggest is that you follow the advice in these links - especially the last one if this is a recurrent attack:

    Esmi, I'm prepared now to take everything down and do a fresh start, fres new install deleting all old files and database. Can a backdoor survive that?

    Thanks for your advice.

    BTW, I have the latest Norton antivirus products always installed an running and also the microsoft security essentials and I open spyware doctor regularly from time to time and brush through the whole computer. To upload I use filezilla and only two computers access the website, this one and a mac.
    Can I infected the website through filezilla on the windows computer or the mac? Is it likely? I can't understand that with all this security plus all the toughest recommended plug-ins and still getting hacked!

    Thanks

  8. More than likely the hack came from an exploited account on your server, not from your computer. Just remain calm and carefully follow this guide. When you're done, you may want to implement some (if not all) of the recommended security measures.

    Thanks James. Yes, it is quite puzzling how could this have happened...

    Just to be sure, when in the recommendations for file permissions, when it says "all files should be writable only by your user account" whqt's the equivalent number (like 664 or 750...) thanks.

  11. Use 644 for files and 755 for directories.
