Someone has tried to hack into my website
I run a website that is not hosted on wordpress (my blogs are but i needed more plugins for the site) and last night, someone tried to change the email for the admin account (I got the email message this morning when I woke up) and when I went to my user accounts, there was a new account set up there which I did not set up!
I don’t see that anything on the site has changed but I’m wondering if there is a log file somewhere that I can check to see what changes were made and if the ip address of the person who set up that account had been captured.
I have changed all passwords to make them stronger, but I was hoping someone would have suggestions for how to increase the security of my website which is self-hosted as well as for my blogs which are on wordpress.com.
The non-profit organisation that I run has attracted a lot of attacks from hackers in the past so any suggestions would be really appreciated.
