    I just got an e-mail that my password had been lost and changed for one of my blogs and now I can't log into said blog because it doesn't recognise my password or e-mail adress any more!

    Now, my blog looks like this


    What is this and what do I do?

    My entire site has been hacked now. Again, by the same person as before. I guess I am now changing the above question to: how do I improve my wordpress blog security?

    If you are using a Windows PC as a development system and use FTP to transfer files, you might want to check your PC for trojans. One of my colleagues had their FTP password stolen by a trojan and invisible frames were added to their WP site that included links to propagate the trojan.

    I've published a plugin that will scan a site for changes made to it within a time range. The plugin is Simple Changed Files. There are also file monitoring plugins that will email you when any of your files get changed. I use WordPress File Monitor Plus after doing a scan with Simple Changed Files.
