Help! My site was hacked.

    My site was hacked. The web host said that I would have to rebuild the site or they could charge me $50/hour to rebuild it. I’m hoping there is some way to restore (at least partially) from WordPress but I’m not certain how.

    I found some files inside my child theme that I knew weren’t my doing (strange names, files created when I was out of town) and deleted them, but that didn’t change anything. I don’t want to go too far down the road of deleting files in case I would mistakenly delete something I need. I don’t think I’ve ever backed up the site, unless that has happened without my realizing it.

    When you go to the site it’s just blank. If you search for Revolution Hair & Body Salon and go to the site through Google, it takes you to a site to buy Viagra. Ug. I hope I don’t have to start over from scratch. Does anyone have any ideas?



    We cannot help you with that site. It is not using wordpress.COM software but using WordPress.ORG software and you will find support over in their forums.
