My WordPress site was attacked
My WordPress site was attacked and I just checked it a few moments ago. I didn’t know when it happened, but I was in the midst of transferring content to another location. (So in some cases, this isn’t critical).
Note: I’m now going to contact support for my hosting service, as I’ve checked the MySQL database and it is damaged (and the password is not working).
1.) I logged into the URL (note: I redirected the Domain now to the new site, instead of the damaged, attacked location where the DB has failed. I won’t post the new location in the meantime, but here is the old location: http://vmerc.com/rhetorics )
2.) instead of the main page, I get the WordPress Initial installation page.
3.) I entered a site name, password, and clicked continue, I then get these error messages (Below) and the “Successfully Installed” page on the bottom:
[ Moderator note: Please use pastebin.com for that error text. ]
