Recommended Posts

My Iblogpro 4 index.php has been hacked. How can I overwrite it or replace it with a clean one without spoiling the settings? Any help appreciated

You can download a fresh copy of the theme from your account launchpad. Then open it up and find just the index.php and upload it via FTP.

I've found it! it was the page.php as well. i replaced that one too and now the site seems ok. Any idea how to stop this sort of thing happening in the future? i noticed that the file size was much bigger
