Repairing a hacked WordPress site

Simple steps:

  1. Take note of what themes or plugins you installed or updated last.
  2. Check these files to see if there are weird things entered in there: then repair if you know how: .htacess, wp-config, index.php
  3. Install WordFence security plugin – the free version is fine!
  4. Scan your site with WordFence and do the recommended repairs!
  5. Update or remove the plugins or theme that you think made your site vulnerable to the hack.
