    hello everyone a few months ago i noticed that my site http://www.martinezmarineinteriors.com that i run for a friend of mine started running extremely, ridiculously slow. load times can take up to 2 minutes. no changes had been made to this site for months so i was baffled at what could be causing this.

    it might also be important to mention that my wp-admin page and all of the dashboard pages work perfectly as one would expect (1-2 second load times).

    i called up my hosting provider and they told me that my wordpress was out of date so i updated my WP and database however this problem still persists.

    i am at a complete loss as to why this is taking so long to load.

    does anyone have any ideas.

    thanks in advance.

    Bill

    Not only you run an old version of WordPress, your site is also injected with Java script files containing malware. So, update immediately with a latest version of WordPress and cleanup your site.

    yes i had several javascript files that had additions to the end of them.. how did these get in there in the first place. there were several css.php files as well as a swiff.upload file that i didnt put up there.

    It could have been any number of ways since your site was outdated. They exploited holes in your site to put what they wanted to on your server. By any chance do you know if you have timthumb.php installed on your site anywhere? If so, is it updated? That has been a huge issue.
