    Please help. My site has been hacked.

    When I type in the URL of my website, it goes to some hacker site, before a message saying the following comes up:

    --------

    Warning: Visiting this site may harm your computer!
    The website at www.mysite.com [I have removed my site from here]contains elements from the site www.xdxbx.com, which appears to host malware - software that can hurt your computer or otherwise operate without your consent. Just visiting a site that contains malware can infect your computer.
    For detailed information about the problems with these elements, visit the Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page for www.xdxbx.com.
    Learn more about how to protect yourself from harmful software online.
    I understand that visiting this site may harm my computer.

    ---------

    I am using Wordpress. The DNS records look fine.

    How can I fix this problem? It is really destroying my business.

    PS: I don't to put down my URL for obvious reasons.

    If all your passwords still work, you can just reconstruct everything from your backups.

    I think you are using the old version of wordpress. I would suggest you to login to your site through CPanel and check the script or php code which has caused it ..

    Go through your sitte and look for offending code (script injected code) that looks like eval, base64, encode, etc. Then delete the nonsense and request for reconsideration in google.

    if you're getting exploit iframe malicious code, clean your pc from virus/malware and change your ftp password, upload your backup and sending reconsideration request in Google for webmaster page.

    Does your hosting offer any backup or if you have a recent backup copy of the site files I would just take the site down and upload the files back to the server.

    Last time this happened to me I deleted everything and did a new install.

    Contact your host to see what they can do.

    I had the same thing happen, it's an issue with the old wordpress versions. You need to upgrade your wordpress version to the current 2.8.4 (the most current I believe) and then install a fresh copy of your themes. Chances are your theme files are the ones that have the 'hacked' code embedded.

    I agree with what another poster said about cleaning your own computer first, then tend to your web site. Your personal computer is probably infected.

    Another thing regarding WordPress I'll mention is the fact that you should always download the Themes from the original creator/distributor. Lots of times 3rd party sites supply modified/hacked themes, this is especially true if you try to (illegally) download premium themes from rapidshare, warez sites, etc.

    A timely reminder to make sure that everything is kept up to date. Protection on PC, update WordPress, update plugins, make sure all sites are backed up - be consistent with this. It only takes a few minutes to do and while that can be irritating it is so important.
