    How to check if you site has been hacked?

    Is there a way that you can scan your site for viruses? Is that possible?

    I have these odd folders appearing in my site with letters HJNKJ randomly - what is this? Difficult to explain what generated them - they might have been created by Wordpress but I very much doubt that.

    I deleted the whole site and updated a clean version and enabled the hidden file feature...

    Anyways, I have been hacked before and I am now very cautious all the time...

    Is there a tool that you guys use for this purpose - i.e. to check your site?

    I've used Securi's SiteCheck before with some success. It really depends on the type of malware you are seeing, though. If possible you should have your host run malware/virus scan on the files themselves, too.
