    Hi. I just need help. Some idiot hacked into my wordpress blog. He changed the login password. At first, he inserted a different index file. After I've reinstalled the wp blog, he changed the password again. I've checked my file permissions all of 'em are fine. How could he have accessed my database and my blog?

    First, change all of your passwords! Even to your hosting panel, and mysql database, ftp, email (for recovering blog password!), everything.

    Then, check which version of WP are you running? It's believed that 2.1.1 is vulnerable... (that some files were changed by an unauthorized person there to allow control over the blog), so if you're on 2.1.1, chances are that's the case...

    After you change your passwords, and if you run 2.1.1, try to upgrade, (but make MySQL backup before, of course, the usual stuff) and then see what happens...

    Hope this helps... :)
