    Hi there,

    This can happen to WordPress sites for a couple reasons.

    a) The quality/security of your hosting. For example, GoDaddy shared hosting gets hacked quite frequently in my experience.

    b) WordPress/plugins/themes haven’t been kept up to date. WordPress is always releasing security updates that patch security holes that hackers find.

    What you can do:

    Contact your host and ask them to remove the affected files. Then change all of your passwords and login to WordPress to perform all updates.

    If it happens again, I would consider looking for a new hosting company.

    Let me know if you have any questions!



    My host is ovh (https://www.ovh.com/fr/)

    I think, they are good.

    I’ll try to change all my passwords after re-installing.

    Thanks a lot!

    No problem – the biggest thing is keeping everything up to date.

    If you do that, you shouldn’t have any more issues 🙂
