    Hey guys, I know this is probably the wrong section but it's urgent and I wanted to get as many eyes on this thread as I could.

    All of my WP sites just got hacked by some fuck called Xr0b0t and I have no idea how to fix it. I am willing to pay someone that can help me with it and it needs to be done soon. I am losing tons of money and I don't want my sites to lose ranking too.

    Please respond here or PM me if you can help.

    Thanks.

    if you have a paid hosting, you should consult with technicians.

    Changed the entire site to say "Owned by Xr0b0t" and put their own page up there.

    Then they fucked up my title tags and everything else.

    If you are using a good hosting provider contact them NOW. They should be able to help you if they are a good provider and have competent technical support.

    If you don't want to go that route then...Do you have DB backups? Have you ever exported the .xml of your sites. Can you log in to the admin dashboard? Can you ftp to your host?

    When you say "hacked"...what exactly are you seeing on your sites.

    In the future be sure to CHANGE the default admin user name and use STRONG passwords. Lock your sites down with the "Sercure Wordpress" plug in. Apply any security updates released by WP and always have a backup of your DB's and a current .xml export before you update. Just in case.

    If you PM me I will take a look and see if I can help.

    I had a problem with my site before and I gave tech my user name and password and they fixed it in no time flat.

    If you have a good web-hosting service, they should be able to fix it.

    Just to update everyone, sukataetumba fixed the hacking issue for me. I guess it was some sort of php exploit.

    I'd recommend you all look into fixing any security issues on your WP sites because that fuckin sucked.

    What you guys expect...
    WP + plugins are just a huge farm of security holes...

    Good that I know what I am doing and have years of experience in that field :D

    PS: Glad to hear that you were able to fix it.
