Generally the support from my host on things to so with my account is quite good. But just recently it seems like "the good" guys who I dealt with have left and I'm left with "newbies" who dip into generalisations and don't answer direct questions. Here's some concerning my Wordpress blog of which I'm having some potential issues with on the account:
Remove ALL third-party plugins/themes/templates/components after upgrading your software installations, and from those that are already upgraded under an infected user.
Soooooooooooo - does that mean I go to the "back up" Wordpress folders and manually delete all those old plug-ins and themes from there? And - can I just delete Wordpress back-up folders altogether?
I was also given a list of files that could have been hacked, they were all dump.txt files at this type of location -:
My unanswered question was - Can I just go ahead and delete those files? Do I need these dump.txt files at all?
Appreciably this is not a Wordpress forum - but I do value people's judgements and advice here on Cre8asite far more than other place on the net!
p.s. moderator types - please move this to a more appropriate forum if you think it doesn't belong here?
