    Wow, it's strange, i can't log in to my admin panel this morning, so i reset my password and get logged in.

    But I notice that my username was changed into "admin", then, I check in "All Users" page and all of registered user's username become "admin" too. is that strange?

    Yes, its strange and your site may be hacked. Check your site url on sucuri.net

    I've scanned with sucuri.net, it's clean and no threats found, for security I use cloudflare.

    Hi, since several days I'm experiencing the same issue.

    Earlier this week I couldn't login anymore to the site and apparently this was caused by the fact that all usernames were reset to "admin" and also all passwords were changed.

    I fixed it by manually updating the database with the correct information, but now, 2 days later, the same thing happened.

    I have several security related plugins enabled on my site (Bulletproof security, Better WP Security, Block Bad Queries, Antivirus, Semisecure Login Reimagined) and none of them detected/reported any suspicious activity.

    Also Sucuri.net sitecheck says the site is clean.

    And I can't find any suspicious activity in the apache access logs and I can't find any suspicious files on the filesystem either.

    Were you able to solve this issue, yans_fied ?
