If your WordPress site is seriously compromised, what is the best course of action to return your site to good health?

  • Determine the date of the attack and restore your site to a backup point prior to that date.
  • Hire a third-party service to clean up your site because it is difficult for someone who is not a WordPress security expert to find and remove all traces of an attack.
  • Manually delete suspicious files on the server and delete any database tables that are not core WordPress.
  • Change your hosting password, your WordPress admin password, and your database password.
