My old WordPress got hacked!
I’m not sure what version it was, but the last time I updated was February of 06 (bad, I know). Anyways, something in the tinymce folder was hacked and they used my server to send out very bad phishing E-mails. Needless to say, my account had been suspended. I downloaded a complete backup, and then started deleting files via ftp like crazy. Now I’m waiting to hear back from my host to see if he’ll unsuspend my account so I can start over.
What I need is advice on how to get my theme, plugins, and any other customizations back onto my new (fully updated) version of wordpress, without risking another security breach. Any suggestions?
