Cloned/spammed blog page on DIVI wordpress managed GoDaddy site

Our website is managed SSL secure + website security package with no malware etc found. Today I notice my blog post page has been spammed with medical blurb but when I go to dashboard my original blog page looks normal but I can't edit off the spam. Then I see the spammed page is coming up separately using by https:// domain. What can I do? This is maybe why people can't access our site on their iPhones as they get redirected to pop up spam google 'you've won' adverts....what can I do?

It's hard to know without being able to view/review your site.  And, your entire site should be https -- that is standard and customary practice in 2020.  So that in of itself is not an issue.

 

When site's get hacked sometimes the code that causes the behavior isn't necessarily on a specific page -- it is in theme files or WordPress core files have been modified. 

 

If you have not customized any of your theme files, you could try uploading fresh copies via FTP to overwrite any changes that may have been made without your knowledge.

 

The first thing to do, however, is to change your passwords.  Both your hosting account FTP and your WordPress Dashboard.  Then it is also wise to lock-down your WordPress dashboard with 2 Factor Authentication.

 

HTH! 😉
