Site Blacklisted -- Malware (2 posts)

    Recently, my WordPress site has been blacklisted due to Malware. Since then, I have deleted any suspicious code in my index.php file which was something like "eval(base64_decode.....etc" followed by a bunch of numbers. I also deleted a share it plugin. At this point, I have no plugins except for Contact Form 7 and a theme installed from ThemeForest.net.

    When I run a scan from Sucuri SiteCheck and run the WordFence scan plugin and view the infected URLs from Google WebMaster tools, it looks like my entire site is still infected somehow including my base url and posts.

    My website is http://www.TravisHD.com. I am beginning to run out of solutions... I really need my website back up and running and just need some help to find where this annoying malware is and get it fixed.

    If anyone can help me please post or email me at [moderated]

    Thank you so much for your assistance.

    Work your way through these resources and follow all instructions to completely clean your site or you may be hacked again. See FAQ: My site was hacked « WordPress Codex and How to completely clean your hacked wordpress installation and How to find a backdoor in a hacked WordPress and Hardening WordPress « WordPress Codex.

    Change all passwords. Scan your own PC. Use http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/ before and after.

    Tell your web host you got hacked; and consider changing to a more secure host: Recommended WordPress Web Hosting

    If you can't do the work yourself, consider looking for a reputable person to fix it correctly on jobs.wordpress.net or freelancing sites such as Elance. (It's not a good idea to respond to unsolicited emails from forum users offering to work for you.)
