    Saturday, my site stopped working. couldn't get into admin nor my site. the page just displayed a message like this.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/content/38/7659338/html/wp-includes/widgets.php on line 212

    but not exactly this. I had my tech guy look at it and he found more than 1100 php with some injected code. he removed it and reloaded wordpress. it was up momentary and I could see that not all of my plugins were there. I did have a backup plugin which I ran in april so I was thinking about restoring it. but before I could do that. the site was infected again and now I get this message. My tech guy can't understand this.
    can any one help. I have a screen shot of the infected code if that helps.

    If it's it, you should restore everything from a clean backup (or reinstall WP, plugins and themes). Make sure all plugins and themes are up-to-date. Then you might need to delete a rogue admin user from WordPress (it has no name but it's ID in the database is 1001001)

    Also make sure that your site doesn't have open user registrations unless you really need it.
