WordPress 2.8.6 Secret Administrator (4 posts)

    I have found a secret administrator in WordPress 2.8.6.

    2 administrators are listed but there should be only one in the list. I can see this secret administrator as the list loads and then it immediately disappears from the list. I have managed to get a screen shot of the list in the millisecond before it disappears.

    What should I do to get rid of this secret administrator?

    I have gone into the phpMyAdmin database and deleted him from the wp-user section and 7 entries in the wp-usermeta section.

    Should I do anything else. This attack makes me very nervous.

    Is no-one interested or are there no helpers yet?
