    To All,

    I checked my WordPress.org today and I see a plugin in my list that I did not create. And the plugin I did create is now gone from the WordPress repository.

    The plugin I created is called "sunrise sunset" and the plugin that I see in my profile page is "Best Google Adsense".

    Any ideas on how this happened and maybe why it happened? Does WordPress.org have a support email address I can use?


  2. For plugins, yes. It's plugins@wordpress.org

    http://profiles.wordpress.org/rxn/ shows up with Sunrise Sunset for me. I also see a lot of commits regarding 'hijacked code' - Something happen?

  3. BTW, if you THINK your account was compromized, please change your passwords ASAP.

    Hi Ipstenu,

    Thank you for taking a look. There was a commit to my repo which I didn't make. So, I simply reverted the changes and committed. That's why it shows up as the right plugin name.

    I still need to find out how this happened though. I wonder if anyone else had this experience.

    Thanks for the giving me the email address.

    And yes, I changed my WordPress.org password immediately after I found out.

  6. Reported up the food chain. We think we know what happened to you.

    Rex: I'll email you from my @wordpress.org email address. As you have changed your password, we will consider this resolved.
