    I just discovered that someone hacked into my WordPress blog, and changed the title of my blog to "Dr.Wh4x was here"
    My site is running WordPress 2.3.1 Obviously I'm going to update now, but what I want to understand is, how did he get in? is there any way he accessed my password? (I can assure you all that he did not guess it)

    Would be inapropriate to post publically about the how-to the guy hacked your blog, because it would help other hackers to do the same elsewhere...

    but you can contact the team with the contact link in the footer "report a site bug"... they may see your situation if you post all your details to them.

    OK, so what do I have to do to prevent this in the future?

    I would search forums.
