I offered a friend to help translate from English some parts of his (mostly) Hebrew install. Then he told me two things:
1) That he's running 2.8 (he was worried about updating because he didn't want the design to break)
and 2) That he has reason to suspect that the site is infected with a trojan horse since it gets blocked by some antiviruses.
1) What is the best way to go about upgrading? is it even feasible to start on a fresh installation and still have everything intact? including redirects? or will I have to go about it as per WP's documentation: step by step upgrading.
2) What can be done about the trojan horse? this is why I'm contemplating a fresh install, which I know is probably not recommended.
Thank you in advance
