Thanks for sending me your FTP and AP Admin credentials. I first restored all the infected files that my plugin cleaned to see if that would fix your site but that was not the problem and your site still did not come up. Then, while looming for the cause, I noticed that the permissions on all the files in your html directory were 555, this did not seem right. So, I wrote a script to change all the file permissions to 644 and all the directory permissions to 755. That fixed it and once you updated the database credentials in the wp-config.php file your site was working again.
I have finished the Complete Scan once more and fixed all the infected files again. Nothing broke and the permissions are still all right. I’m not sure how the permission on every file got changed to 555, maybe you had something else going on around the same time, or somebody else was working on it too, any ideas?
I’m not quite sure how the files got changed. I did run a system called site lock that Godaddy suggested but from what I could see it didn’t fix any problems but that is the only possibility I could think of. Thanks again for your help. I will be donating!

I am a webdesigner and owner of discovermmg.com and now days my clients are requesting Wordpress sites for easy expansion and the overall easy to manage plugins one of my sites got hacked and injected with a Trojan virus that turn my sites into a mess. I did my research and men there is a lot of companies out there that will charge you and arm and a leg for a service like this and not to mention the hosting companies turning their backs at you or offer expensive and worthless stupid dedicated technical support "NETWORK SOLUTIONS" that at the end they eat up your time and fix nothing. I am EXTREMELY GLAD i found Eli, i went and install the plugin and at first I was still having some difficulties and Eli step in to the rescue fixing the site within minutes. I am proud of authentic services like this that offer genuine services and back up their product 100%. From now on all my site will have this feature as part of their package. There is no words to describe I thankful I am for this outstanding service! Aloha Eli -- Baldemar
