WordPress hacked. (7 posts)

    Hi, having serious issues with WP hacking.

    It happened about two weeks ago, came in to find every bit of the site riddled with eval codes. I logged into the database through ftp, and deleted literally everything, downloaded wp and reinstalled. (Always keep to the newest version.) Changed all passwords, even had our provider change our mysql pw. I installed 6scan, wordfence security, and ose firewall, plus antivirus and ipblocker.

    Hack was back within 24hrs. I've repeated the process 4 times, with the same result every time -- not sure what else I can do. (We were getting slammed by this ip --> 95.211.58.114, but blocking the ip didn't seem to do much.)

    Could it be our provider? http://www.infometrics.net

    Any tips would be appreciated.

    Unlikely has anything to do with your provider. More likely hacker has installed some back door scripts within your site, allowing them to re-hack you anytime they wish.

    You'll need to have someone review "every" file on your website respectively to ensure none are out of place or were installed by hacker.

    I figured something like that, but how would those remain after deleting everything and starting fresh? I've followed esmi's first and third link verbatim for each instance -- without much luck.

    And what about the second and fourth links?

    Sounds like may be time to bring in an expert to resolve this one for good.

    I disagree. There maybe more that the OP can do themselves.
