Site Infected with Malware (4 posts)

    When I went to my site (www.rosshero.com) today in Google Chrome it stated that my site contained malware and wouldn't let me into the WP Admin page either. I also have received a "Parse error" for my website. I have deactivated plugins (by re-naming folder), replaced "wp-includes/functions.php" (that was path identified with parse error), and even restored my site from a version two weeks ago and it's still not working.

    Does anyone have any insight/advice on how to fix this?

  2. 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.)

    Are inquiries on jobs.wordpress.net something that I would pay someone to do?

  4. jobs.wordpress.net is a jobs board, not a help forum.
