New User Hacked Into Blog
This morning I noticed an email from my blog stating a new user had been created.
This shocked me because I am the only administrator and no one else knows the password.
This happened a couple of weeks ago and I changed the admin password but now that it has happened twice I know it is much more than a password issue.
Can anyone shread some light on how someone else can create a new user on my installation. It is vitally important I get this fixed asap.
This problem only started after I allowed readers to leave comments, though they have to be approved by me before they go live.
I really don’t want to go back to asking readers to register because they never did. In fact only 1% of my readers would know what WordPress is, so to ask them to register was something they just wouldn’t do.
I don’t know if it is related to this.
Can this issue be related to the plugins I have installed on the site?
I want to fix this before they start posting blogs.
This is a real worry.
Thank you for any help.
