Strange page behaviour WordPress

  • SOLVED

Hi Guys

If you type in a browser a page that does not exist you should get a 404 error page but on this client site it is going to a password protected page that does not exist.

The site has been hacked in the past, is this a backdoor that the hacker has created?

normal page = http://www.rawappetite.com/services/

Page that should not exist = http://www.rawappetite.com/services/intensive-mentoring (this behaviour happens when you type in anything for example http://www.rawappetite.com/strangepage

Sitemap = http://www.rawappetite.com/sitemap.xml

How do i hunt down where this behaviour is coded in?

Thank
Steve

Update: 404.php was full of hacker code still!!

Check your 404.php template.

Then yes thats a backdoor hacker has created.. erase the code and copy twenty twentytwelve 404 page code there.

https://github.com/WordPress/WordPress/blob/master/wp-content/themes/twentytwelve/404.php

Or if you have a backup copy of your site theme, then overwrite it with that backup file.
