The title says it all, did this happened to you ? And how did you proceed ? I’m a bit lost and don’t know where to start… I’m scanning my computer and also waiting for a reply from my hosting company. Thanks for any help, that’s really annoying :(

Is this a WordPress site? First thing I do is open up my install files (via FTP ) and sort them by date. This will most likely bring the infected files to the top of the list.

Then it’s a matter of replacing those infected files. Generally though, I’ll remove and replace the entire wp-admin and wp-includes folders.

And of course, change all your passwords (WordPress and server side).

Thanks Jami ! It’s my main website containing all demos (HTML and WP), I thought about deleting everything, changing passwords and reupload but it may happen again if there’s a security issue somewhere. But I’m trying to see if it doesn’t come from my computer first, thanks again for the advices :)

Ok it looks like all my index.html files have been replaced (subfolders for the demos)... So I guess that my FTP login and passwords have been found

Not necessarily. If you had a security vulnerability that allowed someone to inject malicious code into your site and execute it on your server, it could have written all sorts of files. Might want to check and make sure you’re not using and old version of timthumb (from before August), or have any directories with global execute/write privileges (e.g. 777)

Good luck, getting hacked sucks :(

Thanks sevenspark, I’ll have to check that all, or I’ll redo everything just to be sure :)
