Yes, I’m a victim of this hack going around as discussed in the sticky post. I have a blog that I haven’t updated in ages, hence I haven’t updated my version of WP in forever. Please don’t lecture me on this account; obviously I’ve learned my lesson.
Both of my sites are affected, one is a WP blog, the other is not but has remnants of files of an old WP blog backup.
I would love to follow the instructions on this page:
yet I cannot access my dashboard to fix the problems, export my content, or update WP. I just get the “REPORTED ATTACK SITE!” warning wherever I go on my sites, even when I go to my bookmarked admin login page. Even if I click the little “ignore this warning” link. I get a plain-text login page, so I log in, but that brings me right back to the red warning page.
I know I could do a file/database backup and do a fresh install, but I’m trying to avoid that as I don’t have Dreamhost admin status; I’m using a friend’s server space. Though if need be I’ll contact her.
Any help with accessing my WP dashboard would be very much appreciated.
If this issue has already been discussed I apologize, but I searched all over the place and found nothing.
