Support » Fixing WordPress » Disappearing Widget

  • This site has been hacked. The only visible problem is when you click on the ‘read more’ link at the bottom of ‘the island skinny’ widget. In fact this widget does not show up in the Sidebar on the Widget page. So it has been ‘hidden’.

    – I found some suspicious code in the header.php file after viewing the source code:
    [Code moderated. Please do not post hack code blocks in the forums. Please use the pastebin]

    – I replaced the wp-admin & wp-includes folders. I notice they had ~10 more files than they should have.
    – After replacing the core files a script appeared ( an advertisment in words )in the top of header. I removed it from the header.php file and it went away.

    The site has not been been updated as required. I found one plugin that had not been supported since 2007!

    Any ideas how to get the widget back.
