    please help me fix this

    yeah i see that but how can i fix it.. its not showing me which link it is.. i own and could it be something on one of them sites?





    hello what??

    you want someone to surf to a page that google says is hacked?


    so we can download shit and be hacked also?

    Theres a link right on that page to another page that tells you the problem.

    Read much? Its gumblar. Got google? its googlable. You or someone accessing your files via FTP has malware.

    general fix advice:

    Make sure that your files on the server are clean. If that means deleting and reuploading, than you ought to do that. Files that you dont replace, should be looked at.

    Check for files that dont belong, directories that dont belong. Image files with changed timestamps — look at those. Its VERY common for there to be scripts on sites that are named in such a way to mask the fact that theyre scripts.

    Be suspicious, when youre looking at things. For instance, if you look at your wp-content/index.php — even that file has the malicious JS in it…

    Look at your permissions. Do you have world writable files? Any world-writable directories? Are they necessary?

    You need to check your database. Look for rogue plugins being loaded, look for rogue users (specifically look for a user named wordpress). You will NOT see rogue plugins or rogue users in your wp-admin/ area. You need to check your database.

    Make sure ALL of your plugins are current.

    Make sure your wordpress is current.

    Change your mysql password that wordpress uses (update your wp-config.php with that new password).

    change your ftp password.

    Change any admin level passwords on your blog.

    Look at any other software thats being used on your site. Is it current?

    Thats just an outline and not a complete list.

    There’s quite a bit to do, but it’s all necessary.

    If you cant do it all — by all means dont hesitate to enlist the help of someone who can. Quite a few of us do work on the side.

    If you arent archiving access logs, you ought to be, especially now.

    there’s also this:

    There’s also gumblar and various iterations, variations, clones, and whatnot, going around. Getting rid of gumblar, etc.. means you also need to make sure that the remote computers being used to access your site’s FTP are clean. By that, I mean.. they need to be scanned for malware, and any found, removed.

    Sites that have been infected via gumblar must have their FTP passwords changed once the malware has been located. change them, rechange them, while looking for the malware. You MUST find the malware to avoid reinfection.
