    If your server has ransomware - typically this is where your data is encrypted and the only option (short of deleting the instance and re-installing all of your files from a backup) is typically to pay the ransom - as your data is encrypted.

     

    If you have a WordPress site that is being redirected - but you still can get onto the server etc - then it just a matter of re-installing WordPress / Themes and plugins
