Entry Security? (4 posts)

    Previously, a Chinese website kept inserting a malware script into the footer.php of the active theme at our website: http://www.sophisticatesblackhairstyles.com/

    I've installed several security plugins and this seemed to have worked for about a month.

    Today, I logged in to find that they've inserted the same script into our most recent post entry. Do you have any suggestions on how to prevent this from happening?

    Thank you.

    You need to clean your database with the instructions at this site. And be sure you're running 2.8.4.

    I already cleaned my database. Is there anything else I can do to prevent this from happening again?

    The hack might be coming from through your shared hosting. Check with your host and see what they say.

    Change your passwords and all that: Hardening WordPress
