    Someone was complaining that my site had a Malicious Toolkit 9 infection on it.

    So I checked it, and found out all of my sites were infected. Idk if my host is infected as well.

    Is there anyway I can I can scan my hg cpanel and see if its infected?

    Google SecureLive. They fix this kind of thing.

    Not sure. You can go to the Wordpress site - I am sure many people had this same problem and fixed it somehow. I used SecureLive and they fixed it. It was worth the money for me.

    This might be in the boundary of irrelevancy but here are some of my tips. I've got my site hacked a couple of days ago but it's fine now. The way my host fixed it is they restored a previous backup of my site. I lost quite a bit of work but I'd take it anytime if that was the only solution. Though this would only work if you have a sense that your side just got infected recently or you have a restored backup of your site a long time ago.

    Go into your MySQL database, copy everything or just export it, there should be an export data option, and im sure thats where all your raw data is ie blogposts etc. Store it somewhere on your computer. Then take off and reinstall WordPress perhaps? After which you setup your MySQL as usual in the installation. After the installation, go directly into your MySQL and import all the contents.
