  • Since I’m unfamiliar with WPBruizer I’d probably disable that for a bit…

    Since you can’t log in to admin right now I’d FTP in or use my Control Panel’s File Manager and rename just that plugin’s directory by adding 1234.

    See if that doesn’t let you in.

    Else, try something from the article below to get in.

    Once you gain access back run a Sucuri scan.

    Carefully follow this guide. When you’re done, you may want to implement some (if not all) of the recommended security measures and start backing up your site.

    Let us know if you need more help.

    You nailed it. Changing the WPBruiser plugin dir did the trick (actually it’s called “goodbye-captcha”, legacy…).

    I’d check if there hasn’t been any recent ownership changes for this plugin if I were the WordPress Security team…

    Do you have any other recommendation for a no-ReCaptcha anti spam solution, BTW?

    I’m now checking Sucuri, thanks.

    EDIT: The Sucuri plugin found the remaining malicious PHP files and the corrupted core files, I have good hopes that my install is clean now. Thanks.
    Also, I put a comment about my suspicions towards WPBruiser in the plugin page, and went with Akismet for the time being (although I don’t like its data leakage). I will put a math captcha sometime, it has always done the trick for me.
