Support » Fixing WordPress » Is my site hacked?

  • I recently took over editing a word press page for my film club. It recently started reporting that there was malware on the site, first with Mac users (using Google chrome, I believe), then my personal laptop on Firefox. I have accessed it on a public computer with NO report of malware in Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome, yet someone accessing at the same time has gotten the reported malware notice. I have no idea what to do next. I changed the password and checked to make sure there were no new administrators.

    The website if if someone can check it out for me. Let me know if there is any other information I can find to help you help me.

    I don’t believe your site would be blacklisted because of an issue with Google Chrome. More than likely, Google is reporting an issue with your site.

    It has worked on three different browsers on one computer, while at the same time not working on another.
