Support » Fixing WordPress » Website Hacked – Google Re-Directing: Help!

    Hello there guys,

    I’m looking for some advice on my website which is still currently in development and was hacked today. So I discovered that when searching for my website through google all links redirected me to a Japanese website. I quickly discovered a few dodgy looking files after hunting around with FileZilla and removed them, however I cannot remove or change my .htaccess or index.php files which I can see have code in them that is not my own. I have tried changing file permissions and the passwords for everything but I am a little out of my depth and would be grateful to anyone that would be willing to take a look and assist me with the issue.

    Carefully follow this guide.

    When you’re done, you may want to implement some (if not all) of the recommended security measures and start backing up your site.

    If you’re unable to clean your site(s) successfully, there are reputable organizations that can clean your sites for you. Off hand, couple of names that come to mind are Sucuri and Wordfence.

    Get a fresh cup of coffee, take a deep breath and carefully follow this guide. When you’re done, you may want to implement some (if not all) of the recommended security measures.

    Fixed with the help of Malcure’s Free Plugin. The only plugin that found the files and allowed me to completely remove everything. I then followed the guide in implementing any possible security measures
