If your WordPress website has been hacked, your first thought may be to do an internet search for instructions for removing the malware and cleaning the site yourself thus savings some money. There are numerous websites on the internet that give instructions and guides for malware removal. Some basic knowledge in FTP and File Manager is important. If you are not sure of your tech abilities, our technicians at Removemalware.net will clean your site for a one-time affordable fee.
If you want to give it a try, the first step is to scan your website to locate the malware. There are a number of free scanners on the internet. The second step is to change your cPanel/FTP password. Think about creating a difficult password that will make it too difficult for hackers to pursue. For the third step, download WordPress from the official site. Extract files, and remove the malware by deleting all files except wp-content folder, and the wp-config.php file. Remove plugins and themes, not in use, then re-upload a fresh WordPress file that your earlier extracted. Next change admin password to a very secure one that is hard for hackers to guess. The last step is to request a review of the Google Webmaster tools to have the Google warning removed.
Although this sounds very simplistic, and in some instances, it may be. However, usually, the malware infection is hidden and must be manually removed. If malware is not completely removed from your site, it will reinfect rather quickly. Also if you have several websites on the same server, they can be infected from the malware site.
