Support » Fixing WordPress » Hack blocking access to wp-admin

  • My WP install seems to have been hacked (or not, I’m beginning to suspect my shared hosting could be the culprit). Some plain text is being inserted at the beginning of every page – this doesn’t affect site functions except when I try to access [URL]/wp-admin/, where the inserted text is the only thing rendered.

    So far I have:
    * Changed the database password in MySQL;
    * Downloaded a fresh WP install and overwritten all files at the root directory;
    * Downloaded a fresh copy of the theme and overwritten it;
    * Renamed the plugins directory to deactivate all plugins;
    * Checked all files at the root directory for apparently malicious code.

    I have a support ticket open with the host (GoDaddy) but figured I’d put it out here in case there are additional troubleshooting steps to try in the meantime. Thanks in advance.
