    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.

    If you’re unable to clean your site(s) successfully, there are reputable organizations that can clean your sites for you. Sucuri and Wordfence are a couple.

    i had Wordfense installed yet site were compromised.
    I’ve switched to WP Security.
    random php files like wptempo.php, cfgs.php were created all over the server and websites hosted. even in system folder like .cfgs folders..
    i’m nost sure if this because wordpress was hacked or server was compromised.
