    Hi,

    I am working on a site where i think my password is hacked by a 'robot' or something. Recently new users were added without my consent as a administrator.The role was set to none or in dutch (rol was gezet op 'geen'), which isn't a regular option in the pull down menu.
    This new user hasn't done anything malficient, but i want to deliver the site soon to my client and i want to deliver it at least a little bit secure. i Changed the password to a stronger one, but still a strange new user was added.

    please help,

    greetings,

    wouter

    You should at least keep up with security updates to avoid any known issues.

    WordPress version: 3.0.1

    WordPress 3.0.2 was released at the end of November to address a known
    exploit that could lead to the exposure of information stored in the database. There has since been two more releases.

    Where to start: FAQ My site was hacked
