Hacked 3 times in a week (4 posts)

    Hi Guys
    I have been hacked for the third time in a week. I have 4 domains and everything keeps getting swiped including all email accounts etc.

    I do have people working on 2 of my domains and they have access to my cpanel log in and have their own FTP. The only reason for this was because I didnt know how to set up an FTP. Im not technically gifted. My hosting provider has been no help apart from restoring my files three times. I have changed the passwords three times so these are the only two people that know. I have run a free security scan that checks for malware etc and it came up clean? I dont understand what is going on.
    Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Good reading (http://codex.wordpress.org/FAQ_My_site_was_hacked). Besides changing the password, also change the secret keys.

    Make sure you do not have a login of 'admin'. Also make sure that any passwords you use are 10+ characters long. I use phrases I will never forget and add some numeric aspect.

    Want another level of security, try BulletProof Security (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bulletproof-security/) or something similar.

    And more good reading (http://codex.wordpress.org/Hardening_WordPress)
