    I found out that someone got into my website folders and hid their fhishing files and folders on my site. I tried deleting these files and folders but with no success. Can anybody help in telling me how to delete these types of fhishing files? Obviously these hackers are clever and did something to make these files undeletable.

    What is the error you are getting while deleting these files. Do you have root access available to you. If not, contact your host to remove these files for you as they might be rendered immutable using the 'chattr' command.

    The only error message that I get when trying to delete these files is "Could not Delete File:". I think I might have the root access. When I login to my Cpanel admin program and I go the the file manager and try to delete these files from there they seem to be deleted just to reappear again as soon as i refresh the tree structure.

    It might be ownership problem, try to use root access to remove it will do.
