Login problems after being hacked

  • use your host’s phpmyadmin and browse the wp_users table
    look for added or changed admin and email

    Thanks I’ll try that.

    That sorted it, thank you SO much!

    I’m curious, who is your host?

    I had a friend whose client on hostmonster.com got hacked on Friday, and my client on Network Solutions got hacked yesterday.

    We both had taken many security precautions.

    What version of WP were you on? What does your web host have to say about what may have been at fault? My hacker did not change the admin username or pw. They simply placed many index.php.BAD files in every directory, so it’s still a mystery now what exactly the vulnerability was.
