    Hi ! I am using the latest version of wordpress. Someone has hacked my website. I am able to access my hosting account so I changed all the passwords. But something is surprising here. DB is changed. it is having more than 30 tables whereas WordPress should have 19 tables. I tried to change the password of admin from the DB, but that didn't work for me. I haven't yet re-installed the blog because I want to understand that how someone was able to do this thing.

    Could be due to a Poor Password, Exploit in a Plugin you had,

    there are many ways it could of happened.

    latest version of wordpress is easy to hack. Download the security plugin... run it and it will tell you if your vulnerable and where.

    The name is WP Security Scan.
