Sites Hacked ! "Trusted" plugin suggestions ?

Recommended Posts

andre_thompson

Hello - I was informed (by RSA) recently two of my sites were recently hacked while using Platform Pro. (hostmonster and inmotionhosting servers) Fortunately the damage was minimal. The hack is a phishing attack against lloyds TSB. [i believe both wp installations were 3.0.X, now updated to 3.2.1] site 1: 1. PHP files were added to wp uploads folder (eg: wp-content/uploads/r0s/hsecure.php) site 2: 2. Another is a index.php file copied to site directories by HackeD By [email protected] I am trying to prevent this occurrence in the future by installing a "Trusted" plugin to secure the wp installation. Any thoughts ?

What version was installed? Was Wordpress up to date? What 'trusted' plugin?
