Re: “How to Clean a Hacked WordPress Site (September 11th, 2017 at 16:24)”

Your comment is the best description of how to clean a hacked website that I’ve seen. It deserves to be in an article of its own somewhere and I’m pretty sure it would be generating traffic for years to come…

I’m here looking to fix a website trashed by the Display Widgets plugin. I had weekly backups going back 5 weeks which wasn’t enough so I’m being forced to do it manually :(

I’ll add my thanks for the work you have put in to helping expose and fix the malicious code in the plugin and my vote that your ‘moderation’ in the WP forums be reversed.
