    I was hacked using WordPress 2.5.1 I will be trying to restore my site, but this is not a good sign. http://www.therealtaiwan.com . Some Chinese hackers I think targeting my site. That really sucks. Any ideas for resolving the vulnerability?

    Tell your host immediately. Odds are they did not get in through WP but some other vulnerability on your host's server. Tell them so no one else gets hacked and they can take steps to close their holes.

    Also change all passwords on site from host to WP.

    I got this in an email from my server:

    your account was exploited due to outdated software that contains vulnerabilities. I now can't login to the WordPress account, it has no record of my emails or accounts. Even the backup ones I had in case of a screw up.

    Thanks Sambo, I was able to get back in. The problem I have now is that all of my posts and pages were deleted. I was using the backup worpress plugin. Is there a tutorial on adding posts and pages?
