[resolved] Pharma Hack (4 posts)

    I have gone through Chris Pearson's guide to removing the Pharma hack. I find the database entries but I do not see any hacked files in the plugin directories or any directories for that matter. When I remove the database entries the hack goes away for a day, but then it comes right back.

    Does anyone have any good ideas on things to search for?

    I am running WordPress 3.0 and have manually reinstalled all of my plugins.

    Help Please!

    I found a company called Sucuri and ended up paying them to remove it for me.

    I highly recommend them.

    They also have an article on how to remove it.
