URGH. I have been hacked again. I upgraded to the new wordpress only a couple of days ago. A friend was searching for something on my site and on came across http://www.spritesandbites.net/wp-content and the page was a black page with I think skulls or something on it with words to effect of “hacked by…” and it had all pharmacy links on it.
I found what I thought was a fake index page in my wp-content folder – it was index.html and as far as i know, the only index that should be in there is index.php. So I deleted it.
Now no pages are coming up on my blog. Dashboard is still there but no content is displaying.
I have not messed with the file associations of the wordpress files and have left them at whatever the wordpress default is. I did notice that wp-content was set at 777 – is this the problem?
If this is the problem, how are they managing to change it to 777? Also can anyone advise how I can get my content back please?
I really have no idea where to start, I try to keep up to date with all the security fixes but I am beginning to think after a year of successful blogging that it is not worth the effort. Throw a little sunshine my way please 🙁
