On 23 July 2009 I was hacked into and some code was inserted into my WP theme that sent out links to hundreds of pornographic sites whenever I did anything on my blogsite.

I would like to know if this is something that happened via my server in 34sp.com, and if so, has anybody else suffered this inconvenience?

Also, does anybody have any advice on what to do. My brother has removed the malware from my code, but he can't guarantee it returning. Also it will take some time for Google to accept my website as clean again.

Any comments gratefully accepted.

Alice

Looks to me like it's still there.

What you need to do is clear everything out of your webspace, change all your passwords (mySQL, siteadmin, FTP, etc.) reinstall Wordpress and restore the database with a clean backup from 22nd July or earlier.

If you don't have any backups then you've got a lot of work to do.

I had something similar about a year ago, I suspect they got in via my FTP as that is not secure.

I have since upgraded to Secure FTP (do a search, plenty free ones) and not had any problems, I hadn't realised how insecure FTP is!
