    Hello comunity!
    I have a slight issue, maybe someone has gone has the same problem before,
    recently one of my webssites got hacked, they made a redirect in htacces to a escort site in istanbul or something, I fixed the redirect, the website is now de-indexed, the probpem is now in google search console the mobil version is still the old redirected escort site, I have contacted hosting and they can do nothing, any idea where to look for the problem?

    What you are going to do about the Google issue? You said it got deindexed. You didn't get any notice in webmaster tool?

    the wordfence plug in found multiple errors, solved them and now the AMP version is correct,
    no notice in google search console, now the page is indexed again, luckuly it is a fresh website that I am going to sell that is not giving any income yet, but it is a time waster,
    bloody hackers,
    the escort website is not even indexed in google so what would they need a redirect for?

    probably to drop a virus or redirect to something else, could be multiple things, you need to find the root of it

    always back up your content so you can resurrect it later.

    This is simple issue. I don't think it will be a problem in case you have a backup already with you. It may be a problem for you if you don't have any backup. I guess you already have a back up. So her's my solution to your problem - Just reinstall WordPress and restore all your files and databases. The problem will definitely be resovled.

    After you restore all your files and databases, make sure you do a complete scan of your site with WordFence plugins. They do an wonderful job in finding if you have issues with WordPress security. I will suggest you to keep this plugin activated even after your site is restored.

    Don't think much about the errors you are getting in Google Webmaster Console. Their reports are not instantly updated. So even if you have no problems with your site, you may see some wrong reports in Webmaster Console. If you don't find any problem after doing a WordFence scan, just leave it that way. Check after a week, I am sure you won't see any errors.

    The Wordfence generating more problems than it solves.
    Often it blocking legit traffic.

    Strong password is much more effective.
    Plus removing all not used plugins and themes.

    Cheers, Greg.
