Getting hacked...dunno what to do...

So when I try to open up the homepage for my site, I get this message:

Warning: Something's Not Right Here!

Seems like a message put out by whoever is hacking me. I can still go to all of the inner pages without any trouble. This message also doesn't seem to show up unless I'm using Chrome...

Any ideas? Thanks!

    Same thing happened to me a month ago, I panicked because many
    of my clients fanpages are connected to my hosting company.

    I called them immediately and they found someone hacked my files and
    put malware on ALL of my sites!

    They located which one it was and I spent about 2 hours removing the file from each website.

    Call your hosting company right away. Good luck!

      I'm with HG too - they fixed it for me, although I had to change domains because of this.

    Just click proceed anyway. Try to check your system time and date because that's the source of browsers error/warning if your time/date are not up to date.

    It is sad for @Craftisy.. To change domains is a hectic / panic exercise. It may affect your popularity and rankings. So, is there any simple way to protect your data / or restrict the Malware ?? If we may implement cyber security..

  • A couple of my forgotten sites were recently hacked, too. If your site is WordPress there are scans that can be done to find the rogue code. So far, every attack I've had was easily fixed by reinstalling core files.

    On my important hosting account, I keep it clean as a whistle... all sites locked up tight. One hacked site can lead to everything being hacked.

    You should scan your computer, too. The hacker could have gotten access by grabbing your account info from your computer.
