All Posts in trash? (5 posts)

    Hi there, I woke up this morning to discover that all the posts on our site had been moved into the trash section and the widgets in the footer had disappeared?

    Very odd. I have made two other people administrators on the site, and I suppose they could have made a mistake and accidentally done this, but I am wondering if it is possible that the site got hacked?

    Nothing truly malicious happened, but should I make sure everyone changes their password?

    It doesn't sound like a hack - more like a database corruption issue.

    I have deleted a couple of plugins that were added last night as the site had been running perfectly fine before hand.

    Do you think this could happen again? Should I make any changes or just wait and see if it happens again.

    I have backed up the site in any case just in case the worst came to the worst.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Impossible to say. Have you asked your hosts if they had any issues with the server overnight? In the meantime, try repairing all of your tables just in case.
