site got hacked! now trying to restore it
my site http://movingcities.org got hacked a week ago, and now i’m trying to restore it.
yesterday i manage to upgrade to WP2.6.2 but now i get these errors inside the admin:
Warning: is_dir(): Stat failed for /hsphere/local/home/moisasco/movingcities.org/wordpress/wp-content/themes/. (errno=13 – Permission denied) in /hsphere/local/home/moisasco/movingcities.org/wordpress/wp-includes/theme.php on line 140
and i have three small questions regarding this:
- the hackers manage to created a index.html file (with their message) inside the root of the server. i have deleted that file, do i need to create a new index.html that links to WordPress content?
- i also realize that there is a hidden file on the root called “.wxprd” created on the day of the hacking. should i delete this?
- i am not sure if i should delete everything inside WordPress folder and then re-build my site using “wordpress.2008-10-20.xml” of saved post and pages?
Thanks very much for your attention, i’m at this point which i’m not sure what is happening inside is easily solved or if i need to re-install everything.
