hacked "by real_Karizma "? (2 posts)

    In trying to log into my blog only to have it no longer recognize my username or password I discovered the following message "by real_Karizma". Does this mean my blog was hacked? Does this mean I must rebuild it? Is there anything else I should be concerned about?

    I've been hacked too by the same morons. What I've found is this:

    - It seems they only replaced "index.php" and "style.css" within the active wordpress theme folder. I can't confirm this though, I am still investigating.

    - They replaced the username and password in the wp_users table.

    Try editing the wp_users table and change your user name and email address back to what it was. Go to the WordPress login page and reset your password.

    This does not prevent them from defacing your website again though.
