My website has been hacked (4 posts)

    My website has been hacked by someone from Turkey (netstat). My site is

    I read that I should reinstall the theme but I am not able to log into my admin account.

    I also read that I would probably need some sort of supervisor or administrator to fix this problem.

    I am new to this. I have never had my site hacked into. Will there be a way to restore all the work that I have done? Is it backed up somewhere?

    Is there a way to determine how something like this happened? How can I prevent it?

    I'm not sure what version of wordpress I'm using. Let me know if that is crucial to fixing the problem.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for your help. How do I get into my admin if my password has been changed? I do not know how to contact an administrator to do this.
