I posted this before and tried to update it but it said the topic was closed. Not sure what's going on. is there a new wordpress vulnerability?
my blog just got hacked all comments are gone, even spam. I didn't do anything to the plugins or add anything to the theme.
happened after i got linked from TechCrunch to this post I did.
i think sometime between early this morning and now.
My host godaddy seems clueless. they want to charge me $150 to restore the site, Plus they don't know what happened.
i escalated it to a supervisor and she said there were no problems with the server and i asked her to checked the log files and she said they can't do that cause it's shared hosting. very clueless.
so i got her to get an advanced tech to check it out after much persuasion.
if they don't know what happened is there anyway I can find out? I'm not too keen on repeatedly shelling out $150 for a problem I don't know how to prevent
I know I have to go in and change my hosting and database passwords when they're done plus change the wordpress config file passwords.
but other than that what should i do to prevent this from happening in the future?
