malware or hacked - please help (10 posts)

    My blog seems to either have malware or be hacked. I have little technical skills and need specific help as to what I can do or where I can turn for assistance. My home page comes up on my computer but on a friend's, there is a malware warning. Sometimes it appears that the blog is loading "myblindstudioinfo.com" which I have googled with no success.

    The biggest issue is that all the admin pages are reformatted improperly! Something is very wrong and I have no idea what to do next. Please help.

    My blog is http://www.waistingtimeblog.com

    P.S. My host sees nothing wrong from their end and we ran malware and virus scans on the computers at home. I do not know how to read code.

    dgwyer - They don't always come up when visiting the home page. The do not on my computer or my husbands; the do on our laptop and my friend's computer. BUT, every admin page is messed up.

    chinmoy - I have no idea how to do any of that! Is there someplace where I can find step-by-step instructions?

    Just tell Godaddy that it is a PHP exploit when you call. The yhave a script to clear it right up. You will then want to change your FTP password and review these docs http://help.godaddy.com/article/5612.

  10. Not a good idea to trust GoDaddy with a clean up script or a restore point. They get hacked on a regular basis.
