Your theme plays an important part in hacking, If you are using some cracked version of theme then be ready to get hacked soon. Cracked themes often have codes which helps to get you hacked. I would suggest that get a proper theme from any web design company so that there is no chance to get hacked due to unethical themes.

It can find out which code or which file has virus in the blog.*You can install a plugin “Tac Theme checker” which can check your theme before activating it.
