    My website was apparently hacked and while the website itself wasnt damaged. The title of the website was changed to "ZoRLu - - - yildirimordulari.org", whatever that means. And the administrative account has been tampered with, to what extent I dont know. Right now, I cant log in. Plus I received an email at what used to be my administrative email address that said "Password Lost and Changed for user: ZoRLu" I assume that the hacker changed the administrative username to ZoRLu and changed the password and the administrative email address. beacuse when i tried to reset the password for the user Zorlu, it said the new password was sent to my mail, but i didnt receive any email.
    Also, I had an additional non-administrative account wchich i reset the password for and can now log in with.
    Please help! trying hard not to panic...
    also tell me if theres some other place i can get help at.

    This post is helpful for you.

    Don't forget to change your hosting password.
    You didn't receive any email from resetting page of WordPress, though may be your mail server got problem.

    Before you do anything close down the whole site!

    thanx for the help guys! i found this wonderful(though risky) script at http://www.village-idiot.org/archives/2007/05/22/wp-emergency-password-recovery/. i uploaded it to my root wp directory n ran the script. it allowed me to change the password if i knew the username.
    all it needed was that i be able to upload it to my server and know the administrative username. (then i made sure i deleted it before someone else found it) it worked great.
