    Define hackers please ?

    State what security measures you have in place ?

    State what steps your host has taken for you ?

    What was the nature of the hack? Could they have compromised your site via another web app?

    I've been attack twice by this guy: http://daxploit.tk/

    He erase my index page and put some codes and link for his webpage, he did not touch the rest of the wordpress installation but the index.php

    I contacted my webhost (www.dattatec.com) and talk to them about it but they have not reply yet.

    Upgrade to WP v1.2.2, and use an alpha-numeric password (combination of letters/numbers ex: reagan85r).

    It probably has nothing to do with WordPress, I would guess that your host was compromised and they ran a script which overwrote every index.php it found on the server. I would recommend finding a more secure host.
