    I was trying to log into my wordpress page and my login is not recognized anymore. After trying to reset my password on the "forgot your password" link, it tells me my username does not exist. Once i did some more digging on trying to find the username and password i found a file with "ketek90@gmail.com" when i googled that it was a backdoor hack!!

    what do i do? do i need to re sign up for wordpress? or is there a way get my old username and password back to working again?

    just use this code

    save as emergency.php in your root file and after recovery you must delete
    this file

    ive tried the emergency hack, but when i input my email address again it tells me the user does not exist.

    i will scan through the rest of the links to see if the clean up will help.

    would it be easier to just start a new wordpress blog?

    Possibly but you cannot re-use any content from your old site as to do so would risk opening up the new site to the same hacker.
