  • I hope someone can help me.
    Recently, Any links to my site from mobile phones are redirecting to other strange sites… like (web traff dot com) and (russ ian) domains. This is very distrubing. We raised a ticket with my hosting – hostgator. they didi a thorough search and said they found (no injections) etc and htaccess files have been checked.
    They were able to reproduce these redirections to sites and suggest that it looks like a problem coming from cracked plugins on wordpress.

    Can anyone help me? how do i find out where the problem is coming from?

  • btw this problem is occuring only through mobile devices as of now. no desk top issues.

    first, deactivate all plugins & check that links are not redirecting. Then activate the plugins one by one checking after each activation. When the links start to be redirected again, you will know that the last activated plugin is the culprit.

    This will not indicate that the particular plugin itself is insecure as originally installed, but it could be that a hacker was able to modify its files – possibly via a backdoor elsewhere in your site.
