Have I been Hacked? JS link on my WP site...

So, I saw some strange (empty/blocked) popup on my website yesterday… So I deactivated all unneeded plugins from WP and the pop up is gone now…

But, ABP still sees some stuff from with an image called seg.gif

I’m sure I didn’t do this… Can anyone identify it as a known virus/theme/plugin?

I use Vantage with AIOSEO, ContactForm7, GMaps, MetaSlider, Wordfence and Siteorigin widget and pagebuilder.

Website: www . rincon (DELETE THIS) olon .com (since google indexes this forum higher than my website…)

Thanks for any help!

Hi there,

You can install malware detection software like Linux Malware Detect, also known as Maldet or LMD. It will help you to locate any malicious files on your droplet.

The activity you’ve mentioned might come from a faulty plugin, but you can scan your server using the tools I’ve mentioned or scan it with a WP plugin like Wordfence as well.

If you’re interested in securing your droplet (everyone should be in general) you can double-check our tutorial - An Introduction to Securing your Linux VPS.

The article will cover the basic and some more advanced steps in website and server security.

Hope that this helps!

Disable plugins and check again, you need to discard is a plugin issue. Restore your theme files, and even your WP files if nothing changes.

Backup, backup, backup…

Nope, no ads…

Must be one of the plugins… but it’s not like I have that many running (see post above)
