    My Header has been hacked with some crazy ramblings about Levitra and cialis and such. I am looking at my header code, and I am not sure how to get out the bad stuff and make it whole again.

    Below is my entire Header:
    [Hacked code redacted]

    Just removing the spam code won't stop your site from getting hacked again unfortunately.

    You need to completely clean it, and then harden it.

    I found these posts helpful to harden, as well as the ones above for cleaning.

    Wow, thanks so much guys for the wealth of information. I just hope google doesn't get impatient and slam my SEO ranking before I get a handle on this. This starnge code has been crawled and shows up when you search for "carpet ninja reviews" among a host of other keyword searches. What a disaster.
