Website hacked. User renamed to 'sec-w.com'
I’ve been on Holidays for a few weeks. Returned and tried to log into my dashboard with no success. Did a password recovery thinking it was my faulty memory when I saw the username was ‘sec-w.com’. Managed to get in and change pwd, any new users added take on the same name.
I’m reasonably new to this type of scenario and have spent the last 5 or so hours reading all over the place.
Lot’s of great resources and I’ll follow them closely. My plan is to wipe the site and start a fresh install, then add my custom theme and a couple of plugins. Then beef up security based on things I’ve read.
Can anyone shed any light on this ‘sec-w.com’ subject specifically. As in what are they trying to achieve, should I be looking for some sort of back doors? Anything specific to sec-w.com would be helpful
