Support » Fixing WordPress » Lost access to wp-admin. Hacked?

  • Hi there,

    I have the free Securi plugin installed and got a series of 7 notifications of a brute force attack. This has happened before, usually I get dozens of messages of login attempts with non-existent user names. This time I got a small series with existent usernames, and then the notices stopped.

    Now, I’m not able to access /wp-admin or /wp-login.php. I still have FTP access and I’ve tried to reinstall the /wp-admin folder. I’ve also looked at .htaccess to try to understand if someone subverted my ability to get to the folder, but there are no changes to that file.

    Any advice on where to start troubleshooting this would be extremely helpful. Especially if it was soon!
