Website Issues

August 13, 2018 0 By admingud

I just want to update you on some website issues I have been having, it appears the site has been under attack for the past few days and is trying to redirect people to a random gambling website or receiving a random image of a robot as shown.

I thought I had managed to solve the issue yesterday but it cropped up again today so I am still trying to establish how it is happening.  All passwords to my server and admin user accounts were changed yesterday when the issue came apparent.   It was first thought that the theme I was using became compromised however it seems more deep routed then this and this was not the root cause of it.

It appears that the permissions in my theme folders are getting changed by someone or some script to redirect all traffic from my site to other sites.

Upon trying to narrow down what is causing this issue the menu’s on the web site stopped working today which I have now get back up and running.

I just want to reassure you that this will not effect the update being available and I hope with the help of my server provider we get to the bottom of it.  If the worst happened I can move the update to another server but I do not think this will be the case.
