    1) First of all, what do you mean by

    my site is up on wordpress

    Are you talking about a site like http://xxxxxx.wordpress.com? If that's the case, then WP.com forum is at

    If you have a self-installed WordPress, then reset your password using phpMyAdmin which you should have access to.

    2) There are different kinds of hacks which may be prevented by "hardening your WordPress." It could be the "hijack" of your whole website (domain name and hosting) to javascript injection.

    I'm having same problem you listed in #1--since yesterday, as well.

    See my description under "password reset"

    Have you figured it out?
