How do I know if my WordPress site has been hacked?

Well, there are several symptoms - if your site has been hacked, it may be suffering from one or more of the following:

  • Your site is reported as a potential "Attack Site" by Google or your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
  • Your site automatically redirects to third party pages selling various "performance enhancing" medication or porn sites (neither of which do anything for your brand or business image).
  • Your site content has unusual images and links embedded.
  • Your site actually displays a 90's looking ascii-art message saying you have been hacked buy some "Team" in Pakistan. (Yes, this happens. Some of the sites even play 8-bit music... very retro!)
  • Your customers (or your hosting provider) have reported that your site is sending a crazy amount of spam.
