    Can anyone help at all?

    I've received a notification from Google Webmaster that my site has been hacked. A friend of mine with a bit more technical knowledge and identified which part has been hacked. Is there a quick and easy way I can resolve the problem?

    Many thanks

    Remove the malware then request removal from Google's blacklist

    One of my sites keeps getting hacked to through the header.php file.

    I'm currently trying to find the way the hack gets in but in the meantime I've done a quick fix to keep the website live by changing the name of the header.php to header-blablabla.php and changing the call to header accordingly using the wordpress template system.

    most hacks are automated and look for default files in wordpress to change.

    if you are being hacked through the header or footer files etc then changing the names is a quick short term solution and enables you to keep your web site going while you try and find the culprit.
