    [Forum] WordPress problem

    Hi there,

    Recently we have been hacked and my hosts are now saying it's to do with WordPress. I can't find anything on the server or in the control panel so I am not quite sure what they are referring to and I was wondering if someone could advise me please?

    Thank you

    If your host got hacked then you should change your passwords and then check the logs in order to see how the hacker got into your system. If it's a wordpress thing you can ask in their forums for this.
    No private support, only PM me when I ask for it. Support in the forums only.

      @JoyB: vbulletin has no control on this matter

      as Hartmut suggested, change the password and see the log.

      Have the latest version of Wordpress and all plugins. Avoid using nulled plugin and install plugins that are approved by Wordpress - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/
