Support » Fixing WordPress » Commenting disallowed. Being hacked? A bug?

  • Now using 3.3.1. Was using 3.2.1 until today.

    Commenting settings in my blog have been repeatedly reset to disallow commenting, without any input from me. This included not only changing the individual settings on a large number of posts but also changing global settings to require a login, when I only was requiring approval of the first comment.

    Is this a known bug? Something that went awry in my database? Or is my blog being hacked? And to what end?

    I am also getting quite a number of registrations to my blog from e-mail addresses that aren’t associated with anyone I know or who I think have any interest in its content. This suggests hacking.

    I changed the admin password to the blog and it still happened. Now I have changed the password to access mysql at my internet provider. Will see what happens. Suggestions?

    I do know how to reset the settings globaqlly using sql but I shouln’t have to do this!
