Repeated, Consistent Hacking – Protection?

  • For the last month or two I’ve been experiencing consistent, repeated hacks on the same WordPress blog – as far as I can tell, both the FTP and wp-admin passwords are secure, certainly not something easily “hackable”.

    I came online this morning to see this high traffic sites injected with this freaking code again – I’ve cleaned and secured this same blog at least half a dozen times now and it NEVER seems to help!

    I’m super frustrated and would appreciate any help.. I’m at my wits end and this is a very important project that I need to keep secure.

    By the way, I’m running Windows 7, using FireFox.

    WordPress is completely up to date, running 3.3.1 – I’m using the Genesis framework and that’s completely up to date, too.

    Symptoms:

    – this code injected near the footer:

    [ Do not post malware code here. ]

    – on page load the java icon pops up on the task bar – on one occasion the script closed my browser and infected my computer with some type of malware/virus – I had to restore to get back up and running – other times the java icon loads and then nothing happens

    – I found “php.ini” under the root directory of the WordPress install – it contains:

    [ 1,000+ lines moderated. Honestly, do not do that again. Use pastebin.com instead if you must. ]

    I’m really truly at my wits end here – if you’re good with WordPress, I’ll definitely consistent paying you to secure this blog for me.

    Unfortunately, I didn’t know what else to do, so I re-installed WordPress on the live site – I did take the ZIP of the old installation, in case anyone would like to take a look.

    Thanks in advance for any guidance!
