    I'm way over my head here. Updated WP (3.4.1) and discovered that I was hacked (Google blacklisted). Installed Wordfence (on the advice of others), scanned and followed instructions to update other plugins. That was when everything fell apart and now I can't even see my site - 403 error. Site is http://www.heavypen.com

    Plugins updated:

    And once you clean your website and make sure there is no harmful code in it, make sure you submit it for a review again to Google from the Google webmaster tool so you make sure you get all your SEO ranking back.
