    I would email your hosting provider and ask to restore from an old backup. Most hosting providers that ive used offer this service. I just had to use this with hostgator and they charged me 15 dollars but it totally saved my ass. Hostgator told me that they backup on sundays and it may get overwritten. So you need to hurey. It might not be too late.

    Hosting may take time to respond you (depends on your hsoting). N if you are in hurry just upload the the wordpress again n connect it to the older database in this way,you can get all your posts back.. My site was also hacked by some stupid 4 days ago.

    I've written an article about it here:

    http://www.shareaschnitzel.com/how-to-secure-wordpress-wordpress-security/

    It will help you in restoring your website. If you're comfortable with wordpress, I'd recommend to install the here mentioned optional ask apache plugin. It's a little advanced, but really just a little. It can do wonders in preventing hackers access though.

    If you think there's something missing, comment and I'll add it in the article.

    1. Backup all data which being on your host .
    2. Phone host supporter .
    3. Find name of hacker's index file .
    4. Re-up your index file .
    5. Delete all cache .

    Nice article, thewicker, it's simple enough for me and i'll follow your guide. I agree with there's no security when advanced hackers has target your site, it will go down.
    Nice Thesis. looks clean, i love it.

    That is a good article. Thanks for sharing.

    To the OP I am sorry that you keep getting hacked. Hopefully your hosting company can help you get back up (if you aren't already) and maybe help with security if this is becoming a regular issue.

    First of all if there is a message from hacker 1st move is to remove message by uploading empty index.html index.php file. Than make a backup from your db.
    If you need help PM me we can fix it very fast. + there is many plugins for better security for your wp site.
