Eh yaaa.........

So very sorry Grace, that this happened to your site.

I viewed your attached file now, and i definitely agree with you that it looks like they targeted the wrong site.

Did you install those plugins like Akismet and others that helps to crawl and protect sites from malicious hackers?

Spoken to our Admin yet?

I'm sure this will be resolved soonest.

It is well.


Cheers!
;)

Hello Grace, sorry I came onto this thread late. What did you use to build your website? I guess it was Wordpress. I did a check and saw that your site is on a whogohost shared server. I also did a check on the other websites being hosted on the same shared server with whogohost and noticed that a good number of them were also hacked too so the attack may have spread to your site from other infected Wordpress sites on the same server with you.

What you need to do first is to contact your host (Whogohost) and lay the complaint to them. If they are responsible enough they should be able to help you because this sort of thing is not always the fault of the website owner and in such a case any responsible host will support you to resolve it. Please do that and let us know the outcome.
Leave it for God, don't worry yourself. Leave it for God, don't cry no more.

Thanks everyone and Boss T for your responses. My only resort was to contact Whogohost and i did that first thing this morning through online chat and i was asked to send my complaint by mail which i did, and shapaly shapaly Toba was able to resolve the issue.

But Boss they did not accept the responsibility for this, instead Toba said it was because i have some outdated plugins that created the loophole the hackers used, in a way i believed him because i've not locked unto that site for a long time, so there were so many plugins i needed to update. But with this your findings, i dont think i was totally responsible for the hack, all the same, i'm happy i have my site back.

Sweetheart so sorry that i am responding this late. And thank God you have recovered your site back. They wouldn't have been able to succeed with hacking your site for long dear.

So sorry once more but I am glad your site has been restored.
