Last Sunday, I received an odd email from Google Search Console which informed me that my portfolio site had approved access for two new site owners.
I quickly discovered: 1) My site had been hacked and 2) I could no longer log in to the admin panel. In fact, I could not even reach the page due to redirects.
Bottom line, I was locked out of my site. Worse, the hackers were generating hundreds of fake articles for an SEO scam.
I'm not a developer but fortunately my site is hosted at T35. This afternoon, they were able to restore my access and remove the HTML files that gave the hackers access to my Google Search console, as well as recommend a great anti-malware plugin.
I can't tell you what a relief it is to have control over my site and brand again, or praise the support team at T35 highly enough.
Thanks guys; you rock!
