My sites are being hacked like wildfire. I am madder than a hornet. WordPress ver 2.7
They change the theme index.php to display a pic of a cobra with the Assassin Hackers moniker.
Upload your original theme that you are using index.php to fix the site.
They also delete the admin user #1 from the mysql database.
Use phpmyadmin in your cpanel to access your database.
Select your database on the left sidebar
Find wp_users and select browse
Note that user 1 is missing…thats what the hacker deleted
My easy fix is to take another id 2 or 3 etc and click edit
Change id value to 1
Change user_login value to your username
user_pass row set function to MD5 and value to your password
Change user_name value to your username
You are now a little less frustrated because you can now log into your admin panel but are ticked off that your site has been hacked twice in the last week. Your hosting provider can not stop the attacks and tells you to upgrade to the latest version of wordpress which you are already running.
These are who the hackers were:
Rafah, Palestinian Territory
Palestine Telecommunications Company (paltel) (220.127.116.11)
Riyadh, Ar Riyad, Saudi Arabia
Hosting co banned their ip’s but said all they need to do is reset their modems and they are back in again with new ip’s
