Hacked?

    Just to add info, I’ve contacted my host to see if it’s something they have implemented and I’m waiting to hear back from them. Is that common?

    I’d recommend looking through the functions.php file of all your themes, then the wp-config.php for your MultiSite, and finally the .htaccess for any weird code!

    Thanks Brett, checking right now. I have other WordPress installations on this space and all are reacting the same.

    I’ve checked the functions.php of the theme the student used but checking all of them will take forever (they made me install LOTS of themes in their enthusiasm lol…) nothing fishy in my .htaccess or wp-config files and in the functions.php files I’ve check so far

    Try running your site on this
    http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/scanner/ – To check for malware.

    Everything is good (only warning is for outdated software), I have some older WordPress installations on there.

    esmi, great info thank you! I will go through it and fix what needs to be.

    Things got solved out. My web host spotted attacks and installed that extra check to make sure we don’t get hacked. I much prefer that! Currently making sure all my students’ sites are ok.

    Just to follow up, I think many webhosts were implementing this as part of a defense against brute force password attacks. Surprised me too! I don’t think we were hacked, just a security precaution on the part of webhosts.
