Support » Fixing WordPress » Possible Security Issue?? Please help!!

  • I have a problem with wordpress that I believe to be a security issue. I am getting this message when I try to access my site in any way:
    It doesn’t look like you’ve installed WP yet. Try running install.php.

    it has worked fine for about 2 months already, and suddenly something has changed. I dont understand php, but I logged into my server to look at the database.

    in the option table, there is all this information that I did not insert, for instance:

    option_name = blogname
    option_value = monkeybear

    option_name = blogdescription
    option_value = just another WordPress blog

    option_name = admin_email
    option_value = nancy5max@

    a strange blog title, the email address nancy5max@, and other information that has nothing to do with me. Also, some more strange things in the users table i found the user_email listed as nancy5max@ and the user_registered date is 2006-10-07 06:19:30, only a few days ago. maybe somehow this is all reset information but it seems like someone hacked into my blog and changed this all.

    I havent edited anything in my blog for atleast a week. i have reviewed the support forums and this problem seems to arise when something is changed. i havent changed anything for atleast a week and last time i checked the site functioned properly. my web host has also not changed a single thing and I am not close to maxing out on storage space. i think someone got my log in information somehow. Please help me. if you need to review my previous post in support forums the link is here:

    my site link is here:

    thank you in advance.
