that you recover from this well good news and bad news good news is emotions work in their butt off to restore everything and are doing a good job however problem is is they're going through a process well let's back up a second so what the heck actually is today it's what they call a defacement hack and i'll show you what it looks like in a second but all that happens is the hackers get in and this the software that they're running looks for files that are called index and it remove those and it adds their own index PHP file which is encrypted I looked at it couldn't make heads or tails of it and it calls in the information for the site and I'll show you in a second because they're quite clever these hackers I'm an extremely annoying and that's really all it is so don't panic it's just a really big annoyance especially if you've done custom work on your index page on that page so I'm going to show you how to restore how to fix that but now here's the problem like i said in motion is actually doing a really good job fixing your main page but what the problem is is that they're not only replacing the main page in motion use a cpanel as their admin panel for your hosting and so that uses a file structure where the root of your site is public underscore HTML if you have no idea what I'm talking about here you really need to go get a professional legal fix this for you but if you have some vague understanding this is going to help you a lot so the problem is is in Motion's going through and they're removing the hacked page and there and they're restoring page that existed some hours ago but only in the root and this tack is actually affecting every folder in that root area i'm going to show you what i mean in a minute but that means for every root folder every folder that's in your public underscore HTML there's a brand new index dot PHP file in there and my concern what this is is that there's information there that will allow the hackers back in at some future date and so we've got to go through and clean all those up I mean that's what we're doing today we have over a hundred sites on our server um and so we're doing a lot of cleanup today but I want to do this to help so let's um let's take a look at their these fancy hackers work here okay so eriko's way tricky lela animation floating around yeah super hacked by tiger mate so we don't know if they're really a Bangladeshi hacker I really don't care but I mean to show you something so this is the index file on the homepage there was a base on the homepage so what you want to do is use some kind of ftp program i'm on a mac i use fetch on the mac you can use cyberduck or filezilla on the pc you can use cuteftp and there's a number of other ftp programs you need to connect your hosting because we need to replace this page and with a lot of wordpress installs it can be a little different so i'm going to show you mine in particular how you need to actually really fix it so here we are free market design i've already opened it up and if you look on this index page was updated on the twenty-fifth of September today but here is the kicker is all of these folders the subfolders all have been updated today and if you look deeper because I've already looked for instance in this folder demo look at that there is another file so you have to go through and really look for every index dot PHP file because they've been replaced I'm guaranteeing you and in the instance where you see the date as today on these folders that probably means that there was no index dot PHP file in there to begin with so that's why the folders showing the update you know like if we go into my art folder that's where all my graphics images are there shouldn't be that so you just want to delete them so I in fetch right click delete it say yes delete permanently you've got to get rid of all of those so now let's go back anyway and fix it so we want to do is you want to make sure you have a current copy of word press download it on your computer and so we're going to go here to where I have it so we're going to go to the current one three point two point one you see that index dot PHP matches this one over here so depending on what you're for item Mac I can drag and drop think you can a PC you just want to overwrite that but now here's the catch on this WordPress installed my wordpress actually lives in this folder called les los angeles web design so if you have a setup like this here's what's going to happen I've just now replaced this hacked page here so when i refresh you're not going to see this but here's what you're going to see instead it's a broken page to WordPress because WordPress is now looking for WordPress is now looking for it's looking this page is looking for WordPress is installed like I said it's in Los Angeles web design so we need to do is I will just do it by hand so we need to do is you need to open up you need to now edit and you can do this before you upload but you need to edit this index PHP file you'll see here it's saying loads WordPress environment template sounds kind of Greek but what it's saying is looking right here in the same folder for that so if you have WordPress installed in the same place but index dot PHP is your fine but if you have it in a in a subfolder you need to fix it so what you're going to do is put the back to slash forward slash whatever that one is and mine is web design Los Angeles and obviously SEO reasons there and then if we save it uh if we save if we save it and now refresh this oh sorry it's Los Angeles web design not the other way around sorry I would actually be redoing this video if I wasn't in a hurry to get out to you guys because I want to do something to help because this sucks to put it very bluntly so now we go back to Firefox and refresh and there we go so now now we're back up here but now check it out if I actually go to the blog itself which is inside that Los web design folder look I'm still got the little hacker is going so you need to go into that sub folder which is here on my server and you're going to you got to upload your WordPress file to replace that one also so let's replace that one now let's refresh here and now we're back alright so now we're back but now here's the real important part you really need to go let's go back to the public underscore HTML you have to go into all all of these folders and delete that index dot PHP anyone that was uploaded today you have to get rid of it and if it was no I don't want to edit it do not want to edit I just want to delete it you need to delete it every single once you need to go through every folder and this is the most important part so I hope that helped if you have any questions at all on what you can do is you can go to my or WordPress our Facebook page which is facebook.com slash free market media group ask your questions here i'll be looking at this all day and i will answer them if you need help we can either do it or we can point you in the right direction where you can get help the fix will really only take you know a half hour at the top um so so do that but I would really like to help people out because it's this sucks and it's happened to me before and it happens to big sites all the time but but when we're small businesses we don't always have the resources to just get on top of this so whatever we can do we .
