I think I've been hacked?

Recommended Posts


I have a website (http://precisionaerotech.com) that I created with Pagelines Framework.


The client complained about a month ago that there was a gambling link at the bottom of the website... I could never find it and he couldn't find it again either.  However, just today I visited his website and saw this at the bottom:



How is this being injected?  I can't figure it out...


Here are the details:

Website URL: http://precisionaerotech.com
Framework Version: 2.4.2
WordPress Version: 3.5.2
Plugins in Use: 

  • breadcrumb navXT
  • pagelines sections
  • W3tc
  • Get Page IDs
  • LambertGroup - Zoom In/Out Effect Sliders Full Collection
  • Linkable Custom Menu
  • ThreeWP Activity Monitor
  • Ultimate TinyMCE
  • WP Smush.it
  • Sucuri Security (installed to ID the problem)

Server/Host: hostgator VPS

Hello Steve 


It's likely wordpress was hacked and in such a case Wordpress have the following information http://codex.wordpre...site_was_hacked


The first thing to do if you have been or suspect you have been hacked is to contact your host and ask them to investigate and remove any malicious code if they can. You could ask them to roll back your site to a backup before the site was hacked.

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.
