    Roll back the site to a prehacked version, get professional help or search through the files on the server to look for anything that shouldn’t be there.

    You get hacked because the server or the site is insecure. It could be the theme, an iffy plugin, compromised passwords or maybe an email account on your pc that’s been hacked.

    I assume some plugin or the old version of the wordpress could be an issue. Your host can tell you more about this as they have logs often about IPs that logged into cpanel. And you can then find out which files were edited.

    Great. But what have you done to prevent the site being hacked in the future?
