Awoke I this morning to the gloomy realisation that some Ukrainian aholes have hacked my WordPress site.
I don't know how they did this, but I can't get into my admin area and I can't seem to find the installation in my host's Fantastico panel. It's disappeared.
This is a huge concern for me because I thought I had finally found a CMS that I could work with safely. I'm not all that clued up on networking and security so I would really appreciate some assistance.
I'm not going to post my URL here (for fear of further hacks) but I can say that when I type it in I am getting this error:
Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/XXXXX/public_html/XXXXX/cms/index.php:11) in /home/XXXXX/public_html/XXXXX/cms/wp-includes/functions.php on line 1450
Error establishing a database connection
The browser is also trying to get info from the following place: http://ccfelomvhk.com but timing out.
How did this happen? How can I fix it & how can I prevent it from happening again?
