Support » Fixing WordPress » Header.php hacked. Need advice, have tried (seemingly) everything

  • For months now, I’ve had header.php repeatedly hacked with a spam injection. (Check out the source at my site, fungibleconvictions.com.

    I need some unconventional thinking from the WP community on this, because I’ve tried everything currently suggested in the forums.

    • I’ve upgraded and reinstalled WordPress
    • I’ve uninstalled plugins
    • I’ve changed WP and hosting passwords, deleted all users, and created a single (new) admin account
    • I’ve moved my WP install to a new, fresh database

    I’m pretty sure there are other measures I’ve taken that I’m forgetting, but nothing so far has done the trick.

    Can anyone suggest more steps for me to try?

    Should that directory be set to 755?
    BlueHost is my host for this site.

    Should that directory be set to 755?

    definitely
