    Wordpress hack solutions

    Hi
    Couple of my sites are hacked and got malwares Trojans etc

    I know backup restore is one solution but thats not an option in my case

    How do I fix the hack? Can somebody guide in detail please ?

    I have 600 posts so what do I do? If I export and import post in new Wp, will I get malware/Iframe injection on new site?

    Need help badly....

    Thanks

    Do a mysql dump of your site ASAP. I'm unsure of where any malware is stored, but I do not see it being stored in the tables. Once you have reinstalled a fresh WP app, you should be able to replace the relevant tables with your content.

    I hope your posts/database is backed up.

    I recently had to deal with a hacked blog myself (WordPress).

    The error was something like "Trojan program Trojan.JS.Redirector.cv".
    I checked it with a few sites, including Google's Webmaster Diagnostics page, and apparently a line of code had been inserted in to every PHP page in the blog.
    It re-directed visitors to about five "****.rr.nu" sites.

    And whoever did it was able to get into the PHP pages on the main site itself, not just the blog side of the site.

    Anyhow, I was concerned that even if I manually deleted the code from every page and re-set the password, the hackers might have inserted a backdoor that would have later allowed them access.
    So I contacted my hosting company and had them delete my entire site and re-set my account. Then I started over from nothing, and re-uploaded the site.

    So far, so good.

    But I only had about ten posts on my blog. Doing 600 is a whole other matter.
    All the best to you.

    The main causes that help hackers in hacking sites are-
    1. A weak username or password
    2. Plug-ins and themes bugs
    3. Properly not updating themes/plug-ins and WordPress core
    4. jerks
    Check these thing as priority while making sites.
