This site: Fashioncow was hacked, I think by installing a bad plugin. The site loads just fine, but if you click anywhere on the window it pops up a window that loads howitworkz.com/galleries.html.
The plugin was wp-featured-post-with-thumbnail. It has since been deleted.
I just don’t know how to find the code that calls wp_footer, and there is no reason that it has to be a plugin. Anyone know how to fix this? Google searches for howitworkz and hacked, etc, turn up nothing.
Perhaps it edited some WP files, try replacing them. If it’s really a hack, it could also be that the database was edited. Search for “hacked” in the search bar for the “FAQ my site was hacked” for a whole range of tips and tricks.
