Help: Site Hacked and Redirecting to Porn (not good!!) (4 posts)

    Hi all - terrible stuff

    My site: http://startupremarkable.com AND my friend's site which I built:

    Were both hacked this week. When you go to our sites - it redirects almost instantly to dodgy porno sites*

    To make matters worse - now I can't login to my startup remarkable site (says I do not have sufficient permission and when I request a reset email nothing is sent).

    I've upgraded WordPress, currently upgrading the plugins and the Theme (Woothemes Fresh theme) - which I hadn't done in a few months

    Helps!! Any ideas????

    *(seem to only happen in IE and Safari for some reason, not Chrome)

    In firefox, the first seems to work fine, the second seems to be blank?

    You can gain access to both wordpress sites through your phpmyadmin (or similar) provided by your web host to regain access. You can there alter the admin password and relog in again.

    On your server the htaccess may have done a redirect, in which case you may want to reset it (if you have modules and such activated wordpress can reset some of them for permalinks and such).
