Once I tried to open one of my wp web site, it turned out that you are being kidnapped. That is, they are redirected to another URL.

It is my 3 or 4 times like this, you know how to avoid this kind of thing /?
It must be safety-related.

Now I just told my hosting company to restore files backed up websites just before had been kidnapped.

They hack you are talking about should not be possible with the new version of WP. Do you keep updated WP?

If what is really being hacked and redirected WP, it is necessary to find out where your going and reporting this issue so that the hole can be patched.

Are you sure the real problem is not that your property is being hacked and a new index.php is being written?

Consider changing the password for your hosting account. If you have a shared hosting plan then contact support and ask them to do so.

I heard that some free theme / plugin would cause this.
try disabling all plugins and use a default theme. then activate the plugin from one at a time until you see it act up.

At minimum, add this plugin WP:

and scan your site. See what you find.

In addition, Nathan Briggs is a super person security WP too.
