    Strangers are adding themselves as admin users & posting on my blog without permission. How can I stop this from happening.

    They are been a lot lately and I keep deleting them. It is always from the same url which is http://wp.me/p4eMaV-

    Any idea how these people are doing this as I log out every time I leave my blog?

    Thanks

    Once someone obtains Admin or FTP access to your site and/or database, not only can they add themselves as an admin user, they can also install "backdoor" code which allows them continued access even after you change all of your passwords and delete all admin accounts except for well know users. Locating such backdoor code and successfully removing it can be extremely difficult.

    For the best response to your problem, please see FAQ My site was hacked.
