Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Plugin was hacked

  • Resolved twellibaum


    Our site was hacked and one of the plugins targeted was Yoast Seo. I know it’s not the plugin’s fault, but what should we do? Does deleting and reinstalling the plugin means that the seo work done before is gone? Thanks for any help!

    Wordfence found:
    Filename: wp-content/plugins/wordpress-seo/admin/class-yoast-notification-center.php
    File Type: Plugin

    @twellibaum The changes made to the plugin are saved in your database. If you have not deleted anything from your database, removing and re-installing the plugin will not reset the plugin configuration.
