    My websites got hacked by this f*cker last week. I have reported it and now it shows an error. Hosting told that my sites are loading fine with no error. And now the problem is in queue which is really frustrating because those sites are making some money. About 4 websites for that hosting. So while waiting from them, maybe I can find some useful info here. Like for more security or for backing up sites or just any advice.

    I used shared hosting on hostgator for the sites. All on Wordpress.

    your website is defaced, change wordpress admin pass, change the wordpress template and also update wordpress to the latest version.

    Are your plugins up to date? Are you using any nulled plugins / themes?
    Are all domains under one hosting account?

    Take a look at the .htaccess to see if thats redircting to the defaced page - even if that fixes it you will have to find out how the defacer is getting in.

    iThemes Security plugin. Seriously it works wonders. It fixes every Wordpress vulnerability even changing the backend from /wp-admin to whatever you e.g. /signmein. Another thing to do is edit your htaccess to ban users coming from certain countries. I have an Amazon review site so I don't need traffic from Russia, Albania, Ukraine, China and the likes that usually hack websites.

    Yes. all are in one hosting. Thanks for the advice. Yes I have used a theme that I got here. I'll check htaccess (although not familiar with it). I'll take a look.

    I could help you fix the issue, but would need access to the site (FTP). Hit me a PM if you want.

    there is .htaccess posted by me on this forum which should give you protection for most common types of attacks.

    Also have you used any slider on your sites ?
