If you haven’t already you should open a ticket immediately. While a few dreamhost employees do read this forum, it’s not an official method to contact support.

Dreamhost has tools that can help clean up after a hack, but that cleanup may not be perfect. Hopefully you have a backup of your site in case it’s needed. Also it’s your responsibility to secure/harden your sites against hacks. Most hackers sneak in thru leaks in themes and plugins, not wordpress core itself.

Thanks!

BTW - if you suspect your web site to be hacked, please do not post a link to that site in a public forum. There are many types of malicious hacks. A hacked site will often infect browsers that view that site, so the infection spreads.
