Always upgrade your WordPress sites whenever there are updates available!
You plugins too! Woocommerce found vulnerable as well!

Check all links on your website, There is a online illegal drug store that hacked hundreds of websites to backlink their site.

Thanks for @magicjones for pointing it out.

Edit: I will just publish it, everyone put that link in google beside your domain to find if they already hacked you or not.

I see... I was thinking is something similar to black hat stores from TOR browser. They accept bitcoin as payment method so I'm wondering if this site is a complet scam or they really ship the products.

It wouldnt be beneficial if it was a .onion sites. I don't think someone would buy a domain like that (registered since 2003!) to run a scam. yh they probably working but will exit-scam at some point like always :3

NO

From wordpress.org:
WordPress versions 5.0 and earlier are affected by the following bugs, which are fixed in version 5.0.1. Updated versions of WordPress 4.9 and older releases are also available, for users who have not yet updated to 5.0.

What a mess. Basically if I update to 5.1 I lose all of my plugins because many plugins are not yet ready for Wordpress 5, If I don't update I get hacked... nice job wordpress

It took me 6 months to create an awesome WooCommerce site. I had to modify the theme, wordpress files, woocommerce files etc. If I update either one of them, the whole thing collapses.

I'm hoping that Wordfence, Cloudflare and correct permissions on the server will be enough for avoiding hackers, for at least a year.
