Got Hacked 12/08
Hi everyone, I am totally new to wordpress and was running 2.6 that my webhost provided. Someone on this forum spotted this code:
<!–ex–><!–648111413–><h1>FATBLAST EXTREME ONLINE</h1> fatblast extreme online<!–657051976–><h5>FML FORTE (FLUOROMETHOLONE) ONLINE</h5> fml forte (fluorometholone) online<!–312400486–>
Before I go further I read the codex, I read the forums, so please don’t refer me there. I need simple, specific answers because I am a newbie. Many posts are written assuming you know css, php etc.
So I installed a clean 2.7 but I am using the same database. Does anyone think that could be a problem?
I am a little out of my element with MSQ Database and css php. So please speak slowly >;)
The site does not seem to running any funky code at this time:
I basically deleted the old copy completely and installed 2.7 fresh but to my surprise it used the same data so it was not too much work.
I installed exploit scanner, and hash checker (which does not seem to be working with 2.7).
So my question(s) are:
Did I take the right steps?
Is the fact that I am using the same database problematic?
If so how do I remedy that?
And how do I toughen up wordpress to avoid this?
Any additional plugins to help assist this?
