hacked site - contaminated files deleted, meta descrip still hacked descript (4 posts)

    Hi there,

    recently my site (http://www.appletree.it) got hacked. We found literally hundreds of pages advertising nhl and nfl jerseys and also 2 plugins containing lines of php with the 'eval'command. Also in the main directory the index.php file was contaminated with other code referring to the site from where the jerseys were being advertised.
    We have since deleted or corrected all of these files but unfortunately the meta description of the homepage still continues to advertise jerseys and not the meta description that it should be (we are an English school in Italy).

    Does anyone have any ideas for what I could do to fix this?
    Thanks for the help!!

    Hi esmi, thanks but I have already been through a lot of those resources and it was through them that I found all the damaged files. The problem is that even after fixing the problems the meta description has remained the same. I can't find any other places the meta description could be stored in the resources you sent and I was hoping someone might have some ideas.

    At this point, assuming you have a "good" database and files backup, I would restart (i.e. delete the old site, and start a new WordPress install). Once that's up and running, and only if you're sure your backups are safe, re-import the database and files and rebuild your site.
