Compromised

I haven’t posted in a bit and I’ve kind of let the site go a bit. The other day I noticed some questionably named files added to my shared hosting space. Apparently they had been there since June. After trying to figure out if the obscure files were added by the hosting provider during my automatic wordpress updates I’ve decided that I believe at least one of my passwords had been compromised. I have since repaired the altered files that I found and reset passwords. I’m going to more closely monitor the site and make sure it isn’t some plugin misbehaving and ensure the site is not still compromised.
