here is my site ****** please tell me what will i do now?
I advise you not to post your site on here especially since its been hacked and may contain viruses.
What platform is your website ? Wodpress ?
Delete everything, change passwords, inform your hosting and use your back up.
You did back it up didn't you?
ye its wordpress..hostgator
back up your wordpress posts, delete the entire root folder, reinstall wordpress.
Is your DB table prefix set as wp_?
If so, change this to a random string of characters, too. Just for future cases.
So did you fix the website?
Next time don't forget to install some security plugins...
Some good advice posted here for after the horse has bolted. Any black hatters care to share some more tips for those of us who haven't suffered an attack yet? Or elaborate on the advice above?
Install securi http://wordpress.org/plugins/sucuri-scanner/ On all wordpress blogs that you own. Don't use nulled themes from shady sites. A lot of times malware code is hidden in them. Hide any wordpress footprints and your wordpress login page. Also be sure to keep your plugins and wordpress versions up to date. Sometimes hackers can exploit old plugins. Hope these tips help!
thanks for the response i am using the backup
In case you are interested, read it:
Any open source CMS or code is vulnerable and that is why you need to constantly back it up, change passwords
and install plug ins to help fight attacks and close up backdoors.
Anything is vulnerable even an up to date because of zero day etc....Hope you have a back up and reinstall everything with what mentionned above.
