STEP #1

Verify your ftp credentials and download an ftp client. I recommend filezilla client

STEP #2

Verify that you have access to your database file and can edit it

STEP #3

INSTALL ASTROGREP

This program will let you search the contents of files for strings of text

STEP #4
create a folder then use your ftp client to download your wordpress folder to it…

STEP #5
use astrogrep to search for the text livestatsnet
it will be contained in code
in quite a few files then use notepad++ to edit it your files as a group,

STEP #6
Now that you know where the malicious code is
open filezilla client and edit the files found by astrogrep
delete the code including

STEP #7
When all done, open your browser and browse your site…
refresh… and browse again…
if still there

STEP #8
If problem still persists… you may have a few complications…
1. you may not be able to see all the files in your ftp client so you may have to use your online editor given to you by your webhost provider
2. not all the editing might have been applied… which means use your online editor supplied by your webhost provider to verify the changes

STEP #9
If all is good… Now its time to make a few changes…
1. in your wordpress installation set your folder permissions recursively to 755 via ftp clinet
2. in your wordpress installation set your file permissions recursively to 644
3. change all your admin user passwords
4. delete user accounts or change user accounts passwords

STEP #10
If that didn’t do it… its probably in your database as well… backup your db… do a search for livestatsnet in your db… and delete it wherever you see it… if you mess up… just restore the db
