12 Signs Your WordPress Site Is Hacked

(And How to Fix It)

12 Signs Your WordPress Site Is Hacked – We are often asked; how do I check if my WordPress site has been hacked?’

There are some common telltale signs that may help you figure out if your WordPress is hacked or compromised.

In this article, we’ll share some of the most common signs that your WordPress  site is hacked and what you can do to clean it up.

1. Sudden Drop in Website Traffic

If you look at your analytics reports and see a sudden drop in traffic, even though Google Analytics is set up properly, then this could be a sign that your WordPress site is hacked.’

A sudden drop in traffic can be caused by different factors.

For instance, malware on your website may be redirecting non-logged-in visitors to spam websites.

Another possible reason for the sudden drop in traffic could be that Google’s safe browsing tool is showing warnings to users regarding your website.

Each day, Google blacklists around 10,000 websites for malware and around thousands more for phishing. That’s why every website owner needs to pay serious attention to their WordPress security.

You can check your website using Google’s safe browsing tool to see your safety report.’

2. Bad Links Added to Your Website

Data injection is one of the most common signs of a hacked WordPress. Hackers create a backdoor on your WordPress site which gives them access to modify your WordPress files and database.

Some of these hacks add links to spammy websites. Usually, these links are added to the footer of your website, but they could be anywhere. Deleting the links doesn’t guarantee that they won’t come back.

You will need to find and fix the backdoor used to inject this data into your website. See our guide on how to find and fix a backdoor in a hacked WordPress site.

3. Your Website’s Homepage is Defaced 

This is probably the most obvious one as it is clearly visible on the homepage of your website.’

Most hacking attempts do not deface your site’s homepage because they want to remain unnoticed for as long as possible.

However, some hackers may deface your website to announce that it has been hacked. Such hackers usually replace your homepage with their own message.  Some may even try to extort money from site owners.

4. You are Unable to Login into WordPress

If you are unable to login to your WordPress site, then there is a chance that hackers may have deleted your admin account from WordPress.

Since the account doesn’t exist, you would not be able to reset your password from the login page.

There are other ways to add an admin account using phpMyAdmin or via FTP. However, your site will remain unsafe until you figure out how the hackers got into your website.

5. Suspicious User Accounts in WordPress

If your site is open to user registration, and you are not using any spam registration protection, then spam user accounts are just common spam that you can simply delete.

However, if you don’t remember allowing user registration and still seeing new user accounts in WordPress, then your site is probably hacked.

Usually, the suspicious account will have the administrator user role, and in some cases, you may not be able to delete it from your WordPress admin area.
