    Check your .htaccess file first. Most of the modifications are usually done there. The good thing is that G and other search engines still see your site at it was (is) but they redirect visitros to other site (not bots).

    Cheers

    If you have problems troubleshooting through your root files, contact your hosting provider.

    Guys/Girls use SVN and maintain your code. This way, even if you get hacked, you will know what is changed and what not.. I also wrote a tutorial for protecting your WP sites. Search it if you are interested :)

    Btw, you can get free private SVN at bitbucket.com ..

    Yup but it shouldn't - its either down to dodgy hosts who can't protect a server or a lazy user (not necessarily the OP, could be any single user) the on that server that can't be assed to update an outdated script or uses nulled scripts.

    Can't complain though, keeps me in money :)

    Edit: Looks like a Windows server as well.......eeeeeeeeeeeeeeugh, that is all I have to say about hosting with Windows :)

    This type of hacking is getting very common and easy now a days. The hackers edit the file .htaccess located in the root address. Try to make the backups of the files.

    I dont think that your site is hacked. I think you should contact you host company. You can also take help from our BHW members.
