[resolved] Keep getting hacked? (4 posts)

    Every day my site goes down and I get this message on a blank page:
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /home/content/m/k/w/mkwilkin2/html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 192

    Then I restore the wp-includes folder and it's up again...for a short while. I removed all unused plugins, I update to WordPress 3.5 - I even installed the OSE FIREWALL plugin and it still keeps going down.

    Am I being hacked -- or is there something faulty in the code here that's bringing it down? I already contacted the theme builder and they said since the error comes from a WordPress file, I should ask here.

    Can anyone tell me what's happening? Or if there is a particular plugin that gets targeted? All of our other WordPress sites work.

  3. @nunzi: you're using GoDaddy as a host; they're well known to be hacked often. See Recommended WordPress Web Hosting

    Hi esmi,
    Just wanted to say that I performed all of the tasks you suggested -- they were very clear and thorough and I much appreciate your help.
    Additionally, my site has not been hacked since.
    Thanks for sharing your expertise.
