[resolved] Getting rid of Polish hacker (3 posts)

    A hacker every 3 hours posts lengthy diatribes in Polish creating tags for it.
    He has somehow created "wormgive" as a username with a password and created a category to which he puts his diatribes and blog in my website that lacks the word "delete" as do other categories, etc. with the "edit/quick edit/view" alternatives.
    I have changed my email and username passwords, and his username passwords, but he keeps returning.
    How do I block and get rid of that hacker?
    My site is elmelechvoed.com and elmelechvoednation.com

    Hi.
    Try to get his IP address and block it from either your cPanel settings or .htaccess file.
    Also, run an antyspyware and a antivirus scans in case you have a key logger lurking in the bgd.
    Also, the nature of the things he has been doing seems to indicate he had access to your back-end (Admin Panel), which might confirm the presence of a key logger in your system.
    After you are done with your scans, follow all the steps in the link s_ha_dum provided you with.
    Good luck!
