My WordPress got hacked (yesterday)……
I’m not sure if i’m posting this in the right forum or not; but someone Surmunity suggested that i should post what had recently happend to me for feedback or support on what happend. So this is what happend…..
Yesterday, or a couple days before yesterday I recently moved my wordpress core files to the root of my site; and yesterday evening, I got hacked BIG time. I didn’t know what to do. Someone somehow got into my wordpress admin and changed my password, and changed the e-mail address to theirs; I couldn’t log back into my wordpress as “admin” because the hacker changed my password and changed the e-mail address to his/hers. I contacted my host and reported what happend; and I am stil waiting for a response. My sitemeter caught the hacker’s IP address(es); and i have both of them blocked/denyed; I also have had alot of wordpress plugins (could that be why i got hacked as well?) There was a bunch of posts that i didn’t want to delete or lose; but the hacker came so fast (while i was online) that he didn’t give me a choice….and he left a a hack message on my index.php (which is now gone & deleted).
Could any of you give me advice on how to better prepare myself for something like this? What blows me away is, I have NO idea how the hacker got my wordpress password….
has something like this happend to any of you???
I also want to add that i had the latest version of wordpress (2.0.5 when i got hacked yesterday).
