    I just downloaded the Page Link Manager plugin from my Add New Plugin page. Now when I go to my Installed Plugin page, I'm redirected to a Pay Day Loans site at: http://abe.muhay.eu/s.php. Any advice on how to restore my WordPress insallation would be appreciated.

    Further study shows that, after attempting to download the Page Link Manager, it appears that my Installed Plugin file /wp-admin/plugins.php gets redirected to http://abe.muhay.eu/s.php. Is there anyway I can delete my plugins.php file and install a new one? My public site is not affected just my Admin's Installed Plugin file has gone. Any suggestions are appreciated.

  3. Delete the plugin. Then treat it like a full hack, and remove all of WP's files, download fresh copies, and go from there.

    Mika, Sorry I doubled posted but I never received any reply on the Page Link Manager posts. Thanks for replying and letting me know someone is out there. I still have the damage done by the hacking. This is even after I went to my hosting company, removed my old files, uninstalled my WordPress installation and reinstalled it. Now, I still get redirected to http://abe.muhay.eu/s.php when I click the Installed Plugins on my WordPress dashboard. In other words, when I should be going to http://caminosecrets.com/wp-admin/plugins.php I end up at http://abe.muhay.eu/s.php. I checked through all my files and didn't see anything suspicious. I searched for a solution on WordPress which suggested I check my .htaccess file for hacks, but contents looked ok to me:
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I found another .htaccess file containing the hacker's url. This file is in the root folder of a site that my site shares the account with. My site is in a subfolder. I'm waiting for this file to be removed or to get permission to remove it. I received info on another post (from intrin) who received a similar attack and fixed it by re-installing and then installing the Bullet Proof Security plugin.

    I removed the hacker's redirection by deleting my browsing history.

    I just checked this plugin - seems fine to me. Probably another plugin that did this...

    I'll keep that in mind. Thanks for checking.
