WordPress Website has been hacked?

  • Hello all, I have a major issue with a clients WordPress website and I cannot seem to pin point where the problem is stemming from. The website is built on the Gazzette Theme from WooThemes, and there are only a few necessary plugins activated.

    The problem is when you Google the business name, then it shows the name of the site and links to all the appropriate pages but somehow someone has gone in and changed the meta info to read stuff like ‘BUY VIAGRA NOW FOR SUPER CHEAP’ and various other nonsense. Since the business is a local health food store this is not good at all.

    How is someone able to change this info? I have looked in the All in One SEO Plugin files and Theme files but I cannot find this stuff anywhere.

    How can someone add meta to pretty much every page on the site without it being in the header, footer, functions files or anywhere in the SEO plugin and why now Google is saying the site has been compromised. Is there somewhere I am not looking or something I didn’t do, has someone made edits to WordPress core files?

    Thanks for any and all help I can receive on this.. This is a first timer for me..
