HELP! Google search console says my Managed Wordpress has been hacked
Google search console sent me an email saying my http://aboutblackboston.org Managed Wordpress site has been hacked. They de-index it. All that work I've spent gaining organic search engine traction has gone down the drain,.
Sorry to hear you're going through this. In my experience, most compromises occur due to exploits found in plugins or themes, especially if they are out of date. GoDaddy does offer a product to scan the site and keep an eye out for malware (SiteLock). That might be an option for you if you want some additional protection. I'm also a fan of Wordfence, which can help combat intrusions. Also, since this isn't the first time it's happened, I'd highly recommend scanning your own computer(s) for spyware or keyloggers that might be capturing your SFTP credentials. Obviously, you'll also want to make sure all of your passwords are reset and strong. Hope you're able to get this resolved.
