My WordPress has been hacked
I’m running a blog using WP 2.0 and about 10 days ago, I went over my monthly bandwidth limit for the first ever time. I have a 7 gig limit, and running a small hardly-read blog, I’ve never even got close to that before.
So now it’s the start of a new month, and I checked my cPanel logs to find out what used up all that bandwidth. I found this:
I googled xpersia.php and I still have no idea what it is. Some kind of Iranian porn thing?! Whatever it is, it used virtually all of my bandwidth in the space of four days last month and I most certainly did not put it there.
My question: Does anyone know what the hell it is? More importantly: How do I ensure I get it all off my server? Will I mess anything up by just going in via FTP and deleting all the contents of the cache folder?
Is there any way of telling if there’s any other nasty stuff on my server?
