I’ve been developing WP sites for a while now (around 5 years), but I’ve never encountered many problems with hacking until now. I’m hosting around 25 sites on a Shared package on Hostgator (which is probably a bad idea!) and keep getting hacked.
I paid someone to clean up my HG account as I assumed that was the entry point, but he said it was old Aksimet plugins that were the problem. I’ve cleaned all of them out and upgrade all my installs since this guy cleaned up the hacked files / my HG account, but the hackers have come back again…
Seems they’re putting these files into the root of all my WP installs:
And I also saw these ones in the root of my HG account:
What’s the best way of going about diagnosing the entry point for these hacks and preventing them (as much as possible) in future? This is the 3rd time it’s happened so I really need to fix the issue…
Thanks for any pointers.
