    So early today I try to load my site and find I got parse error hacked, with malicious code all over the site.

    I restored my backup and everything is fine, but I now want to secure all my wordpress sites better. What are the best security plugins? I already changed all my passwords.

    Also, anyone else ever get a parse error hack? Looks like an awesome way to take out competitors, especially if they don't know how to backup. That bastard.
