What to do if Wordpress website is hacked or infected?
Plesk itself could not stop website hacking, especially when the website code is vulnerable. If the website is hacked or infected:
- Contact third-party information security experts in order to identify the source of the attack, confirm that it is a not false positive detection and clean up infected files.
- Reset all system users passwords (FTP users), Plesk users passwords, WordPress users passwords
- Update web applications like WordPress, Joomla, etc up to date and their plugins.
- Follow Plesk security best practices
