Access to network administration options lost :( (2 posts)

    Hello everybody!!
    I have run into so many problems with my wordpress multisite installation that I am confused about from where I should start. When I tried to log into the admin panel of my main website, then I got a message that the username that I was trying to access my website was not a valid one. I was very surprised to find this. Then I went to the password recovery page and reset my password using the e-mail address with which I installed wordpress. During this process I came to know that the username of my account associated with this e-mail address has changed to "r00t". Who changed it to this? This is a mystery for me. Does it show some kind of hacking attempt? At that time I was running wordpress 3.0.
    I think it would be helpful to tell you at this point that I am actually running only two distinct blogs using the multisite install. One is the main website at: http://anas.cz.cc/ while the other one is found at: http://urdu.anas.cz.cc/
    Now the problem is that although I have recovered the password for the account with username "r00t" and I have another account with the username "urdu" through which I can access the administration panel of the website present at the subdomain, none of these accounts show the options about the network administration. I thought that upgrading to the latest version of wordpress might fix this problem so I upgraded the site to wordpress 3.2.1 but the problem still persists. Clicking on the "Howdy [username]" link in both of the accounts gives only the "Your Profile" and "Logout" links.
    Anyone knows anything about it??
    Please Help…
    I am very disturbed due to this problem…
    If you want to know any further detail or information in order to help me then please tell me. I shall try my best to provide you with that‼
    Thanks in advance‼!

    We can rewind everything to this.

    You were hacked. You continue to be hacked. Until you sort that out, you're SOL.
