Needed help from professionals

5 replies
My Wordpress site get hacked and near about 50000 URLs get injected through my site sitemap 4 months ago. It takes me almost 4 months to throughout that garbage and now I was thinking all set but one problem still exists. When someone clicks on my site google result then it leads to some other sites randomly set by the hacker. I changed the theme and removed every possible file linked to my site but this particular issue still exists. Any particular way to get fixed this issue? In advance, thanks to every contributor to help me out.

    Contact your host provider and tell them what is going on, and have them "reset to default" your account.

    Yeah your host provider can be a big help...Another option is to install the free plugin called BotRx it will give you a report on what type of shenanigans are going on.

    Good luck

    Everyone above has given you good advice. Sounds like your MySQL Database was exploited and in that event savidge4 is 100% correct. Reason being that the exploit most likely added a script or two or three that are difficult if not impossible to identify.

    Also, Jason Kanigan asked about the WordPress Plugin 'WordFence' which is to be installed as a priority after the initial WordPress Installation. The plugin has a function to show you any difference between original code and newly added code, i.e. exploited code.

    Also, depotgang recommended the WordPress Plugin 'BotRx' which is excellent and will reveal any malicious bot behavior. The exploit may be running bots on a scheduled basis.

    All in all, if your host suggests a system restore before you noticed the issue take that with a grain of salt in terms of a fix because there could be other files outside of the domain's root that may be a backdoor into your hosting.

    Best to do what savidge4 said and be on the safe side.

    Did you try to contact your web hosting service and ask them about malware yet?

    I faced few times with hackers. It's malware virus.

    All the business can be gone over night. But i got them back finally
