Hi. So this is going to be a bit long winded.
I had asked my host provider to help me with something on my site, and they responded saying that “Removing malicious links from a database has a lot of risk involved and is outside of our scope of support. A quick search through the database shows me that for go.pub2srv.com alone there are about 5000 references in the database.”
I had a look at the page source on my homepage and found the link twice within the coding.
So firstly I tried to follow these steps: https://www.wordfence.com/docs/how-to-clean-a-hacked-wordpress-site-using-wordfence/
Wordfence came up with a few lines that didn’t seem to be doing anything and I resolved those but it had nothing to do with the malware.
So I then tried following these steps: http://securepress.org/tutorial-how-to-remove-malware.php
It then wouldn’t let me log back in and wanted me to reinstall WordPress. I tried that and everything was gone. It was just the standard theme with the ‘hello world!’ post.
I used FTP to restore the files from my previous backup, so it’s back to how it was. Still with the malware popping up. But now I cannot access the login page to get into WordPress. It comes up saying:
Fatal error: Cannot redeclare register_setting() (previously declared in /wp-includes/option.php:1871) in /includes/plugin.php on line 1788
Can anyone help me please? I have been redirecting my website to my Facebook page just so any visitors had something of mine to go to. I have turned this off for now. You can see my site here: http://bit.ly/2lexF7C
Any help would be really really appreciated! Thank you.
