Three wordpress builds down with same error on one hosting package (3 posts)

    Hi all,

    three of my sites just went down - all on one hosting package. I was editing something at the time but in a different folder on the server, not a wordpress folder. Have since deleted the folder but nothing has changed.

    The error I get is:
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /home/shelecou/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 192

    You can see it yourself on shellsuitzombie.co.uk and zlbs.co. It's really freaked me out and couldn't be worse timing!

    What do I do?

    Im guessing, but maybe upload a fresh functions.php file into that directory?

    Same thing. All my sites on the server. lines of code deleted from the wp-includes/functions.php file. To keep clients from calling I am having to use the File Manager / History to revert my whole server to a clean point yesterday. The attack seems to be automated (bot) in cycles throughout the day. This is the 3rd variations of attack in the past 2 months. The first attack entered eval code at the top of all of my index.php files every hour or so.. so had to create a cron that runs a script to check and clean my server. 2nd attack inserted malicious code @ the bottom of all 6,000 javascript files on my server. That started and stopped the past month. Now this started yesterday.
