My Sites have been Hacked, How can I fix this?

  • I have a group of 7 sites, all have the same problem.
    about every 30 hours my sites go blank.
    to fix this temporarily I reinstall the three wpinclude/default-xxx files via ftp.
    I changed chmode to 644 read only.
    but 30 hours approximate, when I look at my sites they are all blank again.
    The first time this happened after I installed the JR Favicon for WordPress plug-in. Since then I have uninstalled the plugin.
    Does anyone know what I should do to stop my sites from being hijacked?

    Top 5 WordPress Security Tips You Most Likely Don’t Follow

    The easiest and most effective measure to implement is the ‘.htaccess’ tip. Warning: read my post at the bottom of that page. Make sure you have FTP access to your site regardless of .htaccess, and can delete the .htaccess file if it’s incorrect and locks even you out.

    Let me know if this fixes your problem, I’m concerned about my own vulnerability.
