My personal blog was hacked (for lack of a better term). I haven’t used it in a while, so just noticed it, but it might have happened a while back. The content of the site is still there, but the theme is completely messed up. I tried to uninstall and reinstall the theme and copy and paste CSS from another modern blogger site I use and nothing is working. Any ideas about what I could do to get it looking the way it did before?http://www.mommyinspirational.com
Fixing your theme won’t keep the hackers out, nor will just a security plugin.
I highly recommend the guys at WP Security Pros – wpsecurity.com
They repaired three hacked sites for me and none have been re-hacked. Also reduced pageload times and repaired code errors.
I don’t really know what happened. For a while I was receiving up to 30 user requests a day and when I went in, I had a couple hundred pending comments that were all spam. When I went onto my page to view it, the theme was still in place and all content, but it’s messed up and I can’t get it to look like it did before even though I copy and paste CSS from the original custom-made theme from my other site.
I know fixing the site won’t fix the security issue, but I really need to find a way to get the site back up and running and then I can deal with the security issue.
Will check into WP Security.
What you wrote is the same as saying, “my car’s engine is making loud noises and smoking but I’m going to drive 300 miles and then I’ll get it fixed.”
It’s a waste of time and effort to get your site running without first removing the cause of the hack and securing it. I learned the hard way that hackers plant hidden doors so they can get back into your site.
