So my site was compromised…

Someone cracked my site, and started running a litecoin cpu miner on my server.
I didn’t know how to remove them, thought I patched up the system.
If you found out your site is hacked:

  1. Calm down
  2. Back up the system
  3. Diagnose what happened. Log files, etc… google it.
  4. Wipe it clean, and start fresh.

Luckily I had backups… but still frustrating.
Keep calm, carry on. Remember to update your site on a consistent basis.
