    Hello guys. Today I logged in one of my PBN site and sadly I found out it was hacked.
    The hacker made a php 301 redirect through wordpress index.

    Las time I logged in my PBN site was 3 days ago and everything was fine.
    The index result to be modified yesterday.
    But my articles has already been de-indexed from google.
    If I search my PBN site on google, it seems google have already crawled this 301.

    What now? Will my PBN pass less juice? Can I keep using this domain?

    Just point your domain to a new host. Use a security plugin if necessary.

    Use clean backups (in case you have any) and make sure to harden your wordpress. If you don't use any plugins or themes that can be exploited, limiting login attempts and/or renaming the standard wp-login path plus disabling XML-RPC will aleady block 99% of all automatic hacking attempts.

    Keep in mind that Wordpress itself is pretty secure, the real problem is third party plugins and themes. Great to have that many contributors, but not all of them are professional coders and many of them pay a lot of attention the fuctionality and just a little on security. Why? Security, performance and compatibility are I'd say 75% of the whole time you spend when developing software, only 25% is pure fuctionality. Skipping 75% of the work makes developement easier, but at a price.

    Starki is on the money. I had this issue as well and i n particular this issue seems to plague mega cheap hosting services the worst. Get the rename wp-admin plugin and loginizer/limit login attempts plugins you won't have to worry too much about it anymore. I was going to try and configure wordfence but the myriad of options and features will drive you batshit crazy lol.
