Defender: Site hacked

My site was hacked. Can you help?

    Hi LeeAnn,

    Hope you are doing good today. :slight_smile:

    I have cleaned your site using Defender File Scanning feature, and all the files should be free from any malicious codes.

    However, there are folders /old, and /optimized inside your root directory, which seems like a separate WordPress site.

    There are chances those folders could be infected. Defender will only suggest to delete those folder, because it isn't part of the default WordPress core file.

    If you are looking to keep those folders, would recommend you to open those WordPress sites separately, and run Defender File Scan in those sites individually, and delete any files which isn't part of the WP core files.

    If you aren't going to use those folders, you can delete the folders straightaway.

    I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any further query. Have a great day ahead. :slight_smile:
