    Hi there people.

    I have searched codex and google for help on this but I can't seem to find any answers. Recently my site was hacked by iSKORPiTX - he's a Turkish hacker who broke some records a few years back.

    You can see the result of his work on one of my wordpress sites:

    Now - it's only showing on posts given the category "podcast" but whenever I try to view them I get a black page and the message "Hacked by iSKORPiTX". I have checked and reinstalled version 2.6.1 of WordPress, reinstalled the theme and had a look through my database and I can't find any reference to this.

    I knowm, through Google, that the previous bout of hacking by iSKORPiTX was done via a weakness in GoDaddy's security or something like that so I contacted my hosts and they said they didn't know anything about it and couldn't offer support as "unfortunately many PHP/SQL based scripts in wide use on the web are not as secure as they should be and many are vulnerable to attack and SQL injections" and then suggested I contact my scripts author and let them know...

    Anyone seen anything similar, or know what I should do!

    Sorry if there isn't enough information here - please do ask for more if you need it! Thanks in advance.

    Rubbish - I'm really sorry - I replaced my theme and my install but didn't clear my cache!

    Replacing the category template resolved the issue.

    However - if any one has any tips on how this happened I would appreciate them - and also - should I now change all my passwords and things?!

    Thanks again and sorry I didn't do the basic.

    I'll change the issue to resolved if anyone gives me tips of security!!

    Uploading your files again maybe? I certainly would remove your site, since there is no need to let this be on the intenet any longer.
    Good luck!

    Thanks! I'll certainly do that - by remove my site did you mean remove the url from my orginal post?

    Thanks again...

    Extreme Muslims spend their time hacking WordPress?

    Might help you with this prick iSKORPiTX. He also ruined my site.

    Check this out
    Cpanel for the site of where e is hosting some details

    Also what I found strange is that he seems to be using a hosting service from Thailand.

    http://www.mavi1.org / http://www.who.is/whois-org/ip-address/mavi1.org/
    http://www.siyamiozkan.com.tr / http://www.who.is/whois-tr/ip-address/siyamiozkan.com.tr/

    I am beginning to see that he is aware of how to exploit cpanel where then replaces all of the index.html or index.php with his own.

    If I where to have 5 or 6 of the sites that he exploited I guess that the majority use cpanel http://www.cpanel.net/index.html.

    This is just a hunch.
