Site hacked – nemonn tag infected with scam description

  • Hi & thank you for your help. I understand basic html & css but am no guru so please keep it simple if possible 🙂

    I have 2 sites running on wordpress… frances-hunt.com & danihunt.com. They are on the same server. Both sites have been hacked. Basically, a ‘nemonn’ tag has been added, with scam text about money loaning. This is now showing up as the site description when I post to sites like Facebook. I’m eager to get rid of it!

    If you visit the sites and click ‘view source’ you can see the problem half way down. I have opened up every file I can in search of the text but can’t find it anywhere to delete it. How can I find it and remove it?

    Just a quick note too that I went to great length to make the log-in secure, installing wp-admin in a secondary folder and creating secure passwords, so I think this code was added without hacking in using logins and passwords. Any idea how I can prevent it in the future?

    Thank you so much for your time and brains! Dani.
