    Ok, so before anyone says... "it's your fault", it is. :) I installed nulled themes form where-ever, and now I'm being hacked every 5 minutes.

    I do not know where to start, but I am willing to hire someone to secure my account up again.

    My hosting account has about 15 installs of wordpress and 20 installs of other various programs dating back to 2006/7. So if anyone is willing to help me out I am willing to pay. Price is up for debate :)

    Actually It seems like you have an issue with the scripts sitting on your server or account. Unless you remove those scripts and close all the back doors your site or account should be gone soon. I would recommend a fresh clean start if viable..

    I don't know about your practices but if you were building a long term business why did you use crappy nulled themes?? I am just wondering here. Nulled themes are good for hit and run projects, websites and campaigns only. I guess we all can also learn from our own mistakes.

    I am sure you could patch the site for a while but the real problem for your sites appear to be you, installing bad themes etc.. So a change in your business model and mind is a key factor now for long term success I believe.

    Additionally I believe Elance is the place to go if you are thinking about Server shielding or securing services etc.

    I hope you move to calm crystal waters soon..

    They're all in jail or working for the feds I'm afraid.
    What kind of attacks are you experiencing?
    When did you start experiencing problems?
    Exploits are patched pretty quickly, "well within a few months"
    you might be able to track the rouge script however if it
    backdoors you might need a whole server clean which ain't cheap
    if you don't want to lose your data.
