My WordPress website looks hacked - what steps should I take

Hi there, inspecting the error log of my site, where I’m using a child theme based upon your Dazzling theme I’ve noticed the following lines:

Searching on internet, it seems that this attack refers back to some plugins which were infected.
Read this as a starting reference. Slider Revolution Plugin Critical Vulnerability Being Exploited

Could you add something? Me, I’ll be researching and reporting here my results.

Please close this item. The attack wasn’t related to any line of code of your theme.
They’re trying to refer, blindly, to hacked version of their plugin. Which is not installed neither in my site nor in your theme.
