2.7.1 Site hack – redirect to magic4man.com
I dont keep up to date with whats going on on WordPress as I am not much of a techie. And I dont like to upgrade immediately as it can screw up plugins etc. But anyway . . .
Have a siate iamkohchang.com – I noticed my admin password wouldnt work and was reset last week. So had to get anew pasword. Then I notied the site redirects to magic4man.com – Japanese porn after about 60 seconds.
a line of code was in the header and in a sidebar widget, so was easy to find and remove. I thought that was the end of the problem. (Like I said, i am not an techie I went from MS Frontpage to WP as I wanted something simple and hassle free to use.)
I upgraded to 2.8.4 after I did that, but now may site has gone – just get redirected immediatelty to the porn site.
I will reinstall WP and the theme (Arthemia)and I have a back up of the database – but how to tell if this back up is clean or if there is something hiding in there?
Any help / easy to follow instructions greatly appreciated
