    Someone has been logging into and posting as me on my WordPress blog and posting articles with backlinks in them. It has happened twice in the past 24 hours after I upgraded to WordPress 3.04.

    I changed the username and password. Today the hacker posted as me again!

    I don't know what to do??? I've changed ny Cpanel password as well. Maybe the hacker has installed some software on my server that lets him do this?

    Can someone help?

    I have had a similar problem - people were able to post comments under someone else's name.

    I suggest that you turn off your caching plugin and empty the cache - it did it for me.

    nhowarth - thanks for trying to help. The problem is more serious when someone is actually writing posts as you compared with someone just posting comments as someone else.
